It’s time to go beyond what checkout can do.

In an era where self-checkout is the retail norm, we’ve come to appreciate its convenience, speed, and the power it places in the hands of the shopper. Nowadays, you walk into a store expecting self-checkout. Yet, envision a checkout experience that goes beyond a mere transaction—a dynamic engagement that transforms the shopper’s journey. Even retailers sense this shift in mindset; 1 in 2 is exploring ways to elevate the self-checkout experience, and it’s high time we reimagine what checkout can truly offer.

So, let’s change our mindset about checkout. It’s not just about payment; it’s an evolving engagement terminal adapting to the dynamic retail landscape. Personalization at checkout is the key—tailoring the checkout to the geographic region, a single store or even the individual shopper. With the advent of new technology, there’s no need to settle for the mundane; let’s spice it up with branding, themed screens, or vibrant colors at self-checkout. The possibilities are limitless in this new era of checkout technology.

Speed, intelligence and ease of innovation are elements that are now imperative for enhancing checkout and catering to the diverse shopper journeys evolving with technology. However, the traditional approach to checkout innovation and experimentation historically introduces a lot of risk. Many retailers disrupt their entire system with new technology, confusing shoppers and impacting productivity.

Here’s the thing: it’s an evolution, not a revolution. Retailers need flexibility first, with NCR Voyix meeting them wherever they are in their checkout journey.
