Mobile With Added Value

Merchant apps turn smartphones and tablets into a sales tool

At this year’s EuroShop in Düsseldorf, which will take place from 16 to 20 February, Hamburg-based software company ROQQIO will show visitors what a self-checkout and mobile POS can do.

As we all know, there are plenty of names and terms out there that can have multiple different meanings. This is certainly the case with the term “self-checkout”: doesn’t it make a difference whether the customer and the goods they wish to buy have to make their way to a place in the POS area at which a scanner, keyboard and paper receipt are provided or whether the customer can simply carry what they need for self-checkout in their pocket as a smartphone app and pay wherever they want? Also, what if the POS receipt is stored in the shopping history in an environmentally friendly way at the end of the checkout process, like with the ROQQIO BuyBye app?

When it comes to the “mobile POS”, this term can sometimes be used to refer to applications that are not much more advanced than a modern pocket calculator.

ROQQIO, on the other hand, uses the term “mobile POS” to describe POS software that has proven its worth in omnichannel and over-the-counter retail and is used in both single stores and large chain stores. In addition to cashless payments, it is also possible, for example, to query extensive item and customer data via the tool. This POS is a new module of the ROQQIO Instore app for smartphones or tablets, which also offers a number of back office features.

It is therefore worth taking a closer look and comparing ROQQIO products with what you think you know, while you are at EuroShop for example.
