Visitors to EuroCIS 2019 will learn at Toshiba's booth how every retailer can design his checkout to suit his and the customers' needs. Under the motto "Empowering the Art of Retail", Toshiba will present its end-to-end IT solutions comprising hardware, software and services in hall 9 at stand B42. The retailer can select the suitable components for an individual mix of options from the standard solutions for assisted checkouts, self-checkout systems and payment terminals.

"Instead of a uniform checkout, customers expect differentiated payment options. That's why we're showing retailers at EuroCIS how our flexible solutions can help them customize their checkout zones," says Christoph von Lingen, Country Sales Leader for Toshiba's retail solutions. "One of our highlights is the new Self-Checkout System 7, which is very modular and can be configured in many different ways. We will be presenting two of them." The trade fair will take place this year from 19 to 21 February in Düsseldorf.

More than just a self-checkout system: Self-Checkout System 7

Customers not only want to be able to choose between assisted checkouts and self-checkouts. They also want to be able to decide flexibly whether they want to pay with cash, card or smartphone. Their choice will depend on their preferences, the size of the shopping basket, the type of articles and the previous touchpoints.

The new Toshiba Self-Checkout System 7 therefore stands out for its modularity and flexibility. This allows a wide variety of configurations with different packing stations and with or without cash module. At EuroCIS, Toshiba will present the configurations as a kiosk system for cashless payment and as a self-checkout with packing station. The investment is also protected after the self-checkout systems have been installed, as the retailer can add cash modules, for example, to the systems at a later date.

Compared to its predecessor, the new Self-Checkout System 7 has a smaller footprint and is easier to operate, as there is an LED light guidance system above and to the side of the screen and around the cash input and output area.

All-in-one POS systems for all: Toshiba T10 and TCx 800

Toshiba has extended its range of compact POS systems with the new T10 model, which will be available from January 2019 and will be presented at EuroCIS. While the TCx 800 model is highly flexible and offers three touchscreens in different sizes, the new T10 model is only available in one configuration. This enables a price/performance ratio that allows retailers to benefit from a low price and the quality that other Toshiba POS systems offer. The T10 POS terminal is equipped with a 15" multi-touch screen (screen diagonal: 38.1cm) and numerous USB and RS232 interfaces. The Intel J1900 processor and the 4GB main memory ensure high performance.

Increase the availability of articles: the data glasses for Assisted Reality and the autonomous robot Badger Retail Insight

Customers are particularly annoyed when they cannot find a desired item on the shelf. The retailer must therefore ensure that sufficient items are available at all times. 

With the Assisted Reality solution for Smart Glasses, Toshiba is demonstrating at EuroCIS how store employees on the sales floor can obtain information about article stocks at any time and keep their hands free. Toshiba's dynaEdge DE100 mobile PC is combined with the smart "Assisted Reality AR100 Viewer" data glasses. The requested information is displayed on the data glasses so that the employee still has a clear view of his real environment. The mobile Edge Computing PC is a Windows based solution that is easy to carry. The integrated battery provides up to 6.5 hours of battery life. 

For food retailers with larger sales areas Toshiba will present at EuroCIS the Badger Retail Insight solution: A robot moves autonomously along the shelves and detects whether an item is still available, sold out or in the wrong location. The information enables the store staff to reduce the number of blanks and incorrect article placements on the shelves.

How to know the customers: Signals provides information

To be able to design the checkout zone and sales area in the way his customers are interested in, the retailer must know when how many customers are where.

With the Signals solution, they not only learn selectively whether customers are looking at a special offer in front of a display for a long time, but they can also analyze the entire visitor flow in the store. Sensors mounted on the walls or ceiling anonymously record the customers' movements and transfer the data to the cloud. The analysis of this data provides information about how many customers were in the store on which days and at what time, which route they took and where they stopped. With the help of this information, the retailer can optimize the presentation of articles and personnel planning for the checkout. At EuroCIS, visitors will experience live how the SaaS solution captures and analyzes visitor flows at Toshiba's booth.
