Development of self-checkout technologies following the change in consumer habits leads to an increase of minimarket’s market share. Multipurpose store with a small selling area covers the need of customers for a standard range of products in a certain segment, for example, if it is a grocery retailer, a food point with vending machines or a retail outlet at gas station. At the same time, an important point in organizing the operation of an unmanned store is an effective solution for accepting payments for products.
Smartix company informs about the launch of a new model of self-service checkout, designed specially for minimarkets.
The device includes a compact 15.6″ screen, equipped with QR code scanner and POS terminal. A complete turnkey solution in the “self-checkout + software” format is suitable for launching a flexible format minimarket with a different range of products.
Smartix cash register software for minimarkets takes into account all needs of business in the field of launching and organizing work of unmanned outlets. Features includes:
Smartix self-checkout software supports various methods of receiving payment for products:
Support for local fiscal equipment and cloud fiscal services is provided. The ability to provide buyer with a choice of receipt type — printed or electronic (SMS, e-mail).
In addition to the classic self-checkout, depending on the product range, Smartix self-service checkouts for minimarkets can work with various hardware components:
Standard lockers Devices with cells equipped with regular or transparent doors. User can select shopping cart through an interactive showcase, make payment and pick up goods in the opened cell.
Lockers with cooling Refrigerated lockers with cells, each locker can maintain a different temperature. Customizable storage conditions allows to organize work with various products that require freezing or simple cooling.
Vending and coffee machines Remote control of coffee point equipment at minimarket, selection and payment for drink. Connection of vending machines, snack machines with postpaid dispensing of products.
Up-to-date information about the balances at the sale point allows to effectively plan the replenishment of a new product. To solve this problem, external accounting systems are used, with which Smartix cash registers support ready-made integration, for example, 1C system or MyWarehouse. At the same time, if the customer needs to receive warehouse accounting within the Smartix out-of-the-box software, view balances, write-offs, replenishments, etc., specialists are ready to modify and implement this functionality at request.
Self-checkouts for minimarkets based on Smartix software effectively solve tasks of self-scanning and payment for purchases in a modern small area store. The devices will also work well as a component of a retailer’s modern infrastructure, including digital tools such as QR code room access, electronic price tags, demand-based inventory tracking systems, smart shelves, video analytics, etc.
Variability of the functionality, use of the most modern technologies and possibility of adaptation will allow the implementation of both standard and custom projects with special requirements for software and hardware.
