EuroCIS 2018 in Düsseldorf, taking place from 27 February to 1 March 2018, is once again a meeting place for the European retail trade. Under the slogan “Discover Retail 4.0”, TCPOS and its partners are presenting a broad range of solutions, including the new compact self-checkout system and an innovative integration with online shops.
The retail sector is undergoing a profound change and many companies are significantly updating their processes and tools to better comply with the modern concept of the customer journey. TCPOS’ slogan, “Discover Retail 4.0”, references the direction of this development. In Retail 4.0, the point of sale and logistics combine with state-of-the-art IT and communications technology. The driving force behind this development is the rapidly increasing digitalization on all levels, across all channels, and throughout the customer journey. The technical basis for this is smart, digitally networked systems, which help to organize many tasks in retail: the customer, the point of sale, ERP and ESL systems, as well as stationary and online shops, communicate and cooperate directly with each other. Sales and logistics processes between branches within the same company are intelligently linked to make the sale and the customer experience even more efficient and flexible.
TCPOS and its partners are presenting the integration with the following solutions in its multi-functional POS solution, at stand E22, hall 9:
- Bison Group – ERP, ESL and Business Intelligence
- Datema Retail – Self-Scanning
- Qnips – Mobile Marketing Solutions
- KonaKart – E-Commerce
- Zucchetti – Workforce Management
These experts present solutions for overcoming the difficult challenge of how to digitalize the customer journey in retail: from ERP to multi-platform POS, workforce management, self-scanning and self-checkout to e-commerce.
The highlight will be TCPOS’ stationary self-checkout solution, which combines cash register technology with intuitive self-service when collecting money in retail and catering. The slim solution supports not only all common cashless payment methods, including mobile payment, but also cash payment thanks to a connected cash handling system. The system with card payment is in use in the “KAMPuS” by Kamps convenience store at Cologne Bonn Airport.
