Automated sale of standard goods in shopping centres, airports and train stations

Pyramid Computer will showcase its latest All-in-one polytouch components range and its much talked about Intelligent Vending Modules at the Retail Business Technology Expo 2016 (RBTE, stand 285), which takes place from 9th – 10th March at the Olympia in London, UK.

All-in-one polytouch components 

RBTE presents an ideal opportunity for retailers and end users to learn more about the latest All-in-one polytouch components, which have recently seen successful incorporation into a whole array of retail solutions. This modular product approach is the result from more than 6 years of experience in the multitouch sector. Well-known and successfully rolled-out retail projects are e.g. M&S, McDonalds and AMC theatres.

The All-in-one polytouch components – available in 32, 55 and 65-inch screen configurations – are fully customisable with regards to display size, mounting options (colour, framed and open frame) and PC box performance (available from Intel Core i3 up to i7 & GPU processor depending on performance requirements). Thanks to the modular design of the system, design and incorporation into virtually any retail environment is possible.

The installation of polytouch systems gives retailers the tools to offer a wide range of additional services to encourage upselling and faster, more convenient checkout; for example offering related accessories, product finder and/or product comparison sub menus.

Another key feature of the interactive display series is the plug & play PC-Box, which can be easily and comfortably attached to the display with only two screws, or alternatively, stored remotely where space saving becomes a necessity. With its single interface supporting the display with power, video and touch signal, All-in-one polytouch components offer best service comfort and easy maintenance.

Intelligent Vending Modules

Also to be showcased on Pyramid’s RBTE stand are its revolutionary Intelligent Vending modules, allowing the automated sale of standard goods in shopping centres, airports and train stations through scalable and customisable lockers.

This IoT product – which can be operated per app with smartphones or polytouch kiosk – brings the traditional vending machine to a whole new platform. For retailers, the “Intelligent Vending“ modules allow for turn over long after closing time, and can operate either self-sufficiently or in combination with other polytouch devices. The introduction of the Intelligent Vending modules provide a revolutionary consumer experience through after hours shopping convenience and automised efficiency. 

Another talking point of this solution is the integrated CMOS camera which allows reverse vending –an automatic product return process. If a customer wishes to return a purchase for any reason, after putting it in an empty locker, a picture will be taken automatically to document that the right product has been returned. This offers customers an automated way to return their purchase – at any time.

 “RBTE provides Pyramid with the ideal opportunity to present our latest Retail & Interactive solutions to the UK market,” commented Nico Brandes, Pyramid’s Area Sales Manager for the UK and North America. “We’re confident that our interactive solutions offer both consumers and retailers a genuinely streamlined shopping experience. We encourage visitors to RBTE to come to our stand and play with the All-in-one and the Intelligent Vending Modules to experience just how much fun shopping can be.”
