Now retailers without a lot of space in their stores needn’t forgo self-checkout units. Retail automation provider ECR Software Corp. (ECRS) this week unveiled its best-in-class, small-footprint self-checkout solution at the 2010 National Grocers Association Synergy Showcase. The QUICKcheck (QC) kiosk is the smallest self-checkout unit on the market today with automatic weight security, according to Boone, N.C.-based ECRS.
Able to fit in nearly any space, the affordable QC kiosk offers all of the functionality and security found in full-size self-checkout units. Features include complete weight security, a user-friendly infrared touchscreen, ATM-cash back, an ultra-capacity receipt printer with receipt pullback and auto dispose, and integrated signature capture. Retailers also are able to choose from a wide selection of colors and customizable designs, allowing the unit to fit the look and feel of unique retail spaces.
The kiosk can additionally free up associates for increased floor selling and renewed focus on other important store tasks, and is a practical resource during peak traffic hours and for on-the-go purchases, as well as for customer checkouts in specialized store departments such as deli or HBC. It can be used in multiples with a monitoring attendant workstation or as stand-alone robots.
“ECRS continually strives to provide all retailers with industry-leading technology to improve their bottom-line results,” said ECRS president and CEO Peter Catoe. “People are used to seeing large self-checkout stations in big-box chain stores; the ECRS QUICKcheck kiosk is the solution for the thousands of retailers who do not necessarily fit into that mold. This is truly the self-checkout solution for every retailer.”
