Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions will be exhibiting at The NGA Show 2023 from February 26 - 28, 2023, at Caesars FORUM Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company will showcase its best-in-class portfolio of solutions at booth #1339 demonstrating how retailers can provide personalized interactions with shoppers and improve their operations.
As the grocery landscape continues to evolve, retailers must embrace a "unified commerce" approach to succeed. A study conducted by Incisiv and Toshiba revealed that self-checkout technology is now a staple in the industry with 94% of grocers currently offering or planning to offer self-checkout options in stores. Consumer interest in buy online pick up in store (BOPIS) continues to grow, requiring retailers to adjust across digital and brick-and-mortar channels to unify experiences and make lasting consumer relationships.
"It is critical for retailers to have the freedom to accelerate and meet the demands of consumers to drive retention and loyalty in an authentic way,” said Rance Poehler, President and CEO of Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions. "We provide a full ecosystem of resources for retailers that includes hardware, self-service and software solutions like our ELERA™ Commerce Platform. Our robust partner network also plays a vital role in connecting us with retailers across various segments to provide tailored technology solutions that meet their unique needs."
Toshiba’s partner and independent software vendor (ISV) LOC Software (booth #1725) will showcase first-time demonstrations of their LOC Store Management Suite (SMS) software integrated with Toshiba’s self-service software running on the Pro-X Hybrid Kiosk. The fully integrated combined solution presents grocery retailers with features that address their unique demands across service and convenience for their shoppers. Both companies will showcase the fully integrated joint solution in their booths during the show.
“We’re excited that LOC Software successfully completed testing with Toshiba’s CHEC software application on the Pro-X Hybrid Kiosk. The new software integration and hardware solution creates new offerings and opportunities to empower retailers to meet the evolving demands of their industry,” said Guy Leger, VP of Sales and Marketing at LOC Software. “Our joint presence at NGA will show participants how we are partnering to create solutions that enable grocers to deliver a fully connected platform that links stores, customers, and data.”
Toshiba’s NGA booth will feature the technology that empowers retailers with unified commerce solutions to connect with consumers and meet the changing needs of the grocery and retail food industries. The Hardware Bar will feature live demos of Toshiba‘s TCx ® line of rugged point-of-sale solutions that have been rigorously tested to ensure performance and durability for grocery. The ELERA™ Commerce Platform and its suite of solutions accelerate digital transformation, supporting the connected store experience in an agile, interconnected, and infinitely adaptable way. The booth will also spotlight self-service options like Pro-X Hybrid Kiosk and the industry-leading Self Checkout System 7, offering innovative computer-vision based produce recognition, loss prevention features, and more.
The Incisiv research presented key findings and analysis from a study of 135+ retail executives. The study was designed to understand retailers’ outlook and attitude towards Unified Commerce as an enabler of key growth strategies.
