Retailers, financial service providers, banks, and the IT and security industries – EuroShop in Dusseldorf is opening its doors to professionals from various sectors from February 28 to March 2 2023. EuroCIS is just one part of this initiative. A leading industry fair for retail technology in Europe, its theme for this year is “tomorrow is the new today!”. Who’s going to be there? Us, the ALVARA team.
EuroCIS – One of the Eight Dimensions
EuroCIS began in 1997 – initially as a conference. Today, the event has evolved into the leading trade fair for retail technology. The focus is on innovations within the industry and on new, efficient solutions for commerce. As in previous years, EuroCIS 2023 is one of the eight dimensions of EuroShop. Retail technology will span five halls across Messe Düsseldorf’s complex of buildings. They will be jam-packed with 300 exhibitors from over 30 countries,
all ready to showcase their various technologies for store concepts, delivery chain optimization and digital checkout zones to up to 9,000 industry visitors. They intend to help you revolutionize retail with their plethora of products. Product categories include:
- Analytics (customer tracking or big data management)
- Supply Chain Management (tracking & tracing or warehouse management)
- Payment Systems (solutions for mobile payments or online payment systems)
- POS Software (checkout software or software for POS communication)
- POS Hardware (cash management solutions or checkout hardware).
ALVARA at EuroCIS – with Self-Checkout
This year, the ALVARA | Digital Solutions team is back at EuroCIS. 2022 has shown us that retail is strongly trending towards digitization. More flexibility and cost efficiency take center stage. In order to offer suitable solutions, we are presenting our joint products at ITMediaConsult AG’s stand. In terms of retail, the self-checkout (SCO) is really in the limelight. This bundles ITMediaConsult AG’s hardware expertise with ALVARA’s many years of experience with cash management software.
Self-checkouts are nothing new. They’ve long been a staple among retailers. However, comprehensive implementation is yet to be seen – although the added benefits are clear. After all, SCO checkouts allow staff optimization. At the same time, the space can be used more efficiently. And there are advantages for the customer too: self-checkouts shorten waiting times while also increasing customer flow. All in all, it’s a recipe for a more positive shopping experience.
Success with the Right Checkout Solution
It’s important to remember that a self-checkout can only provide the desired impact when it’s tailored to the site’s particular needs. That’s where our digital checkout system, ITR, comes in. Coupled with the visually pleasing SmartPOS 80 kiosk system, this software solution can optimize a retailer’s customer-led checkout process – tailored to suit them individually. Thanks to this checkout product’s flexible configuration, we can join retailers in quickly integrating and implementing customer demands.
Self-checkout not an option for you? You might prefer to entrust your small farm store, local bakery or butcher’s store to a manned checkout with dedicated sales staff. Then the MediaPOS 800 combined with ITR checkout software with integrated scales is an ideal option for you. Reporting of current turnover across your branches is also catered for by the smart app. So you can create customer-friendly and efficient processes. But the ITR checkout functions go even further:
- Central data management
- Fast checkout synchronization
- Sustainable digital e-receipts
- Advertising on the customer display
- Integration of customer cards and individually configurable discounts
You can experience our solutions up close and personal, and give the hardware and software producers direct feedback, at stand A75 in hall 6. And if you decide to take the plunge, we’ll be happy to find you the right smart and fast checkout solution to suit your business model.
