Software-driven solution enables seamless end-to-end shopping experience for consumers
Diebold Nixdorf is showcasing a new self-checkout concept for the retail market. At just under 10 inches (25 centimeters) wide, the new Extreme Self-Checkout Concept is just one and a half times the width of a dollar bill and fits perfectly in any environment. With the ability to serve as an automated teller machine (ATM), point-of-sale (POS) terminal and a self-checkout unit, the concept enables an unprecedented level of consumer convenience by connecting the physical and digital worlds of shopping to create a seamless end-to-end experience.
By accepting cash, card and contactless payments, the Extreme Self-Checkout Concept enables retailers to meet the needs of today's consumers while driving the future of connected commerce. Additionally, the concept's extremely small footprint enables retailers to free up valuable floor space. The addition of an EMV chip reader further eliminates the risk of card fraud by exclusively reading the cards EMV chip versus the entire magnetic stripe.
Working together with Diebold Nixdorf's TPiSHOP mobile application, retailers are able to connect the entire shopping experience for consumers beginning at home in the planning phase. Consumers are then able to use their retailer's mobile app to build lists and receive suggestions on the fastest route through the store, personalized ads and purchase recommendations based on their location. As the consumer moves through the store, they simply scan the items they wish to purchase using their mobile device. Once complete, the consumer can bypass traditional self-checkout lines via the Extreme Self-Checkout Concept and leave the store. Additionally, the flexibility of the concept enables retailers to offer a wide range of additional services to consumers in a self-service environment such as cash back, check cashing and bill pay services.
"As banks and retailers seek to enhance consumer experiences, the line between physical and digital channels will continue to blur. This concept enables retailers to embrace the future of consumer transactions while utilizing their current infrastructure and technology," said Richard Harris, Diebold Nixdorf vice president, design and new technology incubation. "Diebold Nixdorf is uniquely positioned to guide both retailers and financial institutions through this complex ecosystem to deliver the future of connected commerce."
