The chameleon among checkouts

Combinations of different checkout scenarios play an important role in retail today. In addition to stationary checkouts, mobile checkouts, self-checkouts and Scan & Go are also becoming increasingly important.

All sales must be booked smoothly, whether at the stationary checkout or on mobile devices. drs//POS maps the most diverse scenarios with one investment, from the supermarket checkout system with TSE to the self-checkout.

Self-checkout and mobile checkouts for the POS

The modern checkout solution for the retail trade from DRS AG: drs//POS is versatile with its expandable modules and thus enables different checkout situations depending on requirements.

In addition to stationary checkouts, the option of a mobile checkout or self-checkout (SCO) with self-scanning and intuitive touch-screen as well as scales and printer is now part of a modern POS system. Hybrid models can noticeably relieve the checkout zone and bring further advantages. That’s why you are in the best position with drs//POS Self-Checkout and our Queue-Breaker checkout! Because our checkout solutions for retailers allow flexible use around the clock in hybrid environments: During the day, stationary cash register – at any time, self-checkout. Of course, all our POS systems support checkouts with TSE – mobile in the store or on the road for deliveries. All variants run fully integrated in one system, whether classic checkout, self-checkout or mobile checkout.


The individual, mobile POS system with flexible application options for the retail trade

Our solution for self-checkouts, mobile checkouts and more: drs//POS Self-Checkout offers many more advantages for retailers.

Self-scanning & mobile checkouts

Discover the many possibilities with DRS AG

Cashing up is one of the most important processes in retail: the outgoing goods must be booked correctly, the payment process must be handled correctly. But the checkout process is not only elementary from the retailer’s point of view; customers come to the store with certain expectations: Some want to be checked out personally, others want to scan their goods quickly at the self-service checkout. For customers in a particular hurry, mobile self-scanning hardware or apps for the personal smartphone are also an option, with which they scan the goods independently on the sales floor while shopping and then pay via app.

Ideally, retailers therefore offer different checkout types: Stationary, scan-and-go, self-checkout or mobile checkout. A smart checkout system is necessary so that no media discontinuities arise for your merchandise management. In addition, you can easily integrate a mobile checkout system with the solutions from DRS.

Different scenarios for the checkout

drs//POS maps the most diverse checkout scenarios with one investment. This enables flexible adaptation in hybrid environments:

  • Stationary checkout: Our modern checkout software has proven itself many times over as a stationary checkout with TSE in retail. Employees benefit from the intuitive use of the hardware and short training periods – customers enjoy fast and reliable processing in the checkout area.
  • Mobile checkout: Whether as a mobile checkout with battery and printer on the floor or in the out-store version for on the road, our solution with mobile checkout system and W-LAN connection to merchandise management fully integrates the branch structure.
  • Self-checkout: The advantage of our SCO solution is the flexible adaptation to different scenarios as required. Whether hand scanner or built-in scanner/scale: The customer scans his purchases at the self-checkout quickly and safely himself thanks to the intuitive operation. A touchscreen facilitates operation and guides through the shopping process, so that a larger number of customers can be guided through the self-scanning process comfortably and quickly.
  • Queue-breaker checkout: To avoid queues, a store employee equipped with a printer, mobile checkout system and EFT device can scan the goods directly on the floor and check out with the help of the mobile app.
  • Scan & Go: Customers can scan the goods with their own smartphone directly on their way through the shop and complete the purchase in the corresponding app at the end.
  • Shops (temporarily) without staff: Even for unmanned shops, where customers can shop at any time and pay for their goods without staff, our solution offers a coordinated scenario of all required modules for in-store self-checkout systems.
  • Delivery service: In interaction with the delivery service module drs//DELY, the mobile checkout system enables payment when online orders are delivered at the front door in cash, by card or smartphone.

Practical functions

Such a smart system can also map various payment processes: Cash management machines where customers can deposit cash are just as possible as electronic payment with smartphone, credit, EC or voucher card.

Scales for weighing fruit and vegetables can be set up both at the personally staffed checkout and for the self-checkout. Scales on the floor or at linked meat and cheese counters as well as bakeries with price label printers can also be integrated into the system. The barcode is scanned and calculated as usual.

Vending machines can also be connected so that customers can return their deposit bottles automatically. At the service checkout or the self-checkout, you can simply hand in a deposit slip or scan it yourself.

Adaptable and fast

Depending on the situation, customers have different expectations of the checkout process, sometimes they want a staffed checkout, sometimes they want the option of a self-checkout, where they scan the goods themselves at a paytower and also initiate the payment process themselves – in cash or electronically. Our solution offers you all possibilities in one package. Switching between different scenarios is quick and easy at any time.
A combination with online channels, for example Click & Collect, is also possible with all variants. This expands the stationary trade with online perspectives and represents an optimal omnichannel model.

A smart solution for mobile tills, self-scanning & service tills

The difficulty for retailers in offering the different types of cash registers is to link the systems behind them. This is because the merchandise management system, which is closely linked to the checkout system, must function smoothly and receive the right information from each checkout.

If retailers use a smart system for all checkout types, they can react flexibly to different customer demands – without jeopardising the functioning of the connected merchandise management system. Depending on the situation, retailers can make the checkout process efficient and pleasant for customers while still maintaining a stable infrastructure. The modular system can easily integrate back office as well as data integration and various operational tools. This not only allows them to meet different customer demands, but also to deploy their staff as needed – there is then no need for a salesperson to sit at an empty till.
