Limit person-to-person interaction by using a self-checkout kiosk

Share This Post

It has never been more important than in the present time to create social distance in QSRs, public canteens, bakeries, cafes, micro-markets, cinemas or anywhere else. Self-service kiosks are the best way to limit person-to-person interaction.

Freiburg, Germany, May 29 2020 – Pyramid Computer and Crane Payment Innovations have developed a self-checkout kiosk solution with automated cash handling.

Self-checkout systems are enjoying growing popularity. Their number has almost doubled in recent years. An important success factor for the acceptance of these solutions is the possibility to offer various payment options. Particularly for small purchases such as in bakeries, cafés, pharmacies or fast-food restaurants, retailers still cannot do without offering a cash payment function for self-checkout as well. Customers want to be able to choose their payment method freely in order to complete their purchases as quickly as possible and without long waiting times. In order to allow the greatest possible flexibility in self-checkout, Pyramid Computer and CPI have developed an attractive and space-saving solution that enables cash and cashless payment at the same kiosk.

The kiosk component of the solution is based on the polytouch® Flex21.5 from Pyramid Computer. This has a super-flat, frameless touch display and, depending on requirements, peripheral modules such as scanners, printers or EFT payments can be individually integrated the housing. Due to the compact form factor, the kiosk itself is unbelievably cost-efficient and not only variable in terms of its hardware modules. It is also extremely flexible with regard to its mounting and color options and can be individually adapted to customer wishes/requirements.

In combination with the CPI Pay Station Paypod™ Embedded, which fits easily under any counter, it prevents sales staff from coming into contact with cash and food in rotation. It thus provides an absolutely hygienic method of handling cash transactions, eliminating the time-consuming putting on and taking off of gloves, which are often worn to protect against contamination.

The fully integrated payment solution can be easily connected to an existing POS system, automatically counts all cash payments, pays out the appropriate change in real time and detects counterfeit money.

While the customer is still carrying out the transaction, the sales staff can simultaneously execute and complete the order.
