Want to make it easier for customers at checkout? Smart POS terminals and systems can bag you a smoother setup, giving both you and your clientele a fuss-free shopping experience.
At OKdo, we have all the tech and tools to help you build automated retail solutions.
Using our ROCK single-board computers and accessories, it’s possible to fully customise your POS setup to create advanced, interactive systems.
Whether you’re a retail business owner planning on upgrading the checkout process or want to make the POS element of your business run smoothly in the background, you’ll find what you need to create simple, effortless processes.
With ROCK, you can develop a smart POS machine system with extraordinary touchscreen controls, video, audio and gesture-based interaction, and cashless payment, all connected and powered by a single device, a so-called “brain”, a tiny, low-power, high-performing ROCK board.
An automated POS system is typically designed to work like a checkout staffed by a person. Advanced tech is used to register when products are being scanned, for instance, while the smart setup can take users through to payment without any intervention from a member of staff.
But what makes this option so appealing? If you’re trying to sell this concept to your line manager, here are some reasons to try switching to retail automation solutions:
All of this means you can plan for growth. Expanding your retail business is possible if you can reconfigure existing arrangements and services.
We’ve already mentioned being out and about, but the significance of this can’t be overlooked – especially if you’re sending your wares to festivals or shows. Smart POS can make it easy to get sales without having to set up traditional tills and count change.
If you’re introducing automated self-checkouts, you can free up your team and redeploy them around the store. This can be especially useful at peak times when there’s more footfall through your store.
Scanning products all day can be repetitive and, at times, tedious for those working on the tills. On traditional checkouts, till operators must tally everything at the end of the day, and frequently things don’t add up. This can be because a customer paid in loose change, or it could be that a note has fallen on the floor at some point.
These are things that can happen to anyone. But by updating to automated self-service checkouts and other smart POS systems, the machine counts everything for you, so you don’t lose out.
