Make sure your technology is designed for the grocery environment
So what should you look for when selecting these solutions? A critical feature is retail-hardened design. Generic office-grade or consumer-grade hardware that’s been repackaged for a retail environment just isn’t tough enough for grocery stores. Your technology needs to be retail hardened; designed to handle spills, lint and dust, vibrations and impacts, and constant cleaning so you can keep your lanes open for your customers.
Support your business with a top-notch services provider
A robust services plan can mean the difference between long lines of frustrated shoppers and customers breezing through checkout and interaction points. The best service providers act as an extension of your team, a trusted partner that takes the time to understand your business, goals, and strategy and uses expertise and experience to guide you where you want to go. From deploying new self-checkout solutions to routine day-to-day tasks or even comprehensive wall-to-wall maintenance, partnering with a service provider helps ensure that your systems are efficient, reliable, and maximize your operations in ways that benefit both your business and your customers.
