Simple and quick self-checkout process
Due to the large affluence of customers in various commercial surfaces, self-service kiosks have proven to be a very important and positive tool for each consumer’s experience.
Self-checkout kiosks help to monitor the affluence of visitors in the various commercial spaces, ensuring that customers enjoy a positive experience, giving up little time for the execution of payment of their orders.
The self-checkout process occurs in a very simple and fast way:
1. Through a kiosk with an interactive display, the customer interacts with it to start the checkout process;
2. The customer places the products to be purchased on the scale and then passes them through the barcode reader. The self-checkout kiosk will read the barcode of the products you wish to buy, adding them to each customer’s list;
3. The customer should choose the most convenient payment method, insert the invoicing data and the customer card if this is the case of the establishment in question, and proceed to pay his order;
4. After the whole purchasing process, the customer completes the checkout of his order and receives a receipt for his purchase. With this receipt the customer can check their purchases and make possible exchanges.
Why invest in self checkout solutions?
These kiosks encourage larger orders, give more autonomy to customers and the payment part, which is usually more time consuming, is shortened.
Investing in automation and in technologies that translate into more convenience for customers and more profitability for your business is a strategic bet.
We must also remember that the purchase and consumption experience is one of the points that can also make a new consumer loyal to your brand.
