Florida-based retail management software provider Teamwork Commerce has launched an RFID-powered self-checkout to simplify the process for shoppers.

The technology lets shoppers instantly scan all items and reduce checkout times, making in-store experiences hassle free.

Long queues and wait times at checkout are one of the main reasons shoppers leave stores or turn to online shopping. To counteract this, self-checkout was introduced as the first step in what has become a major technological revolution. In fact, according to Catalina, self-checkout accounts for 38% of transactions in today’s retail environment.

Further to simplifying the checkout process for shoppers and enabling them to conduct transactions at their own pace, Teamwork’s self-checkout technology provides additional advantages to standard self-checkout options. With RFID technology automatically scanning all items, and also capable of triggering alarms, retailers experience fewer losses and enhanced security at checkout.

With this in place, retailers can enhance the number of transactions completed during operating hours, optimising checkout times without having to scan all items individually. Shop assistants also have more time to focus on customer service, providing a high-quality experience rather than manually completing transactions.

Retailers can add barcodes, coupons and new payment methods to enable a completely streamlined shopping experience for staff and shoppers alike.

“We know that self-checkout is here to stay, and we want to take part in the revolution of the retail industry,” said Amber Hovious, vice president at Teamwork Commerce. “The retail checkout experience is the last touchpoint a shopper has with a store, and providing more checkout options can boost customer satisfaction and reduce wait time. With Teamwork Commerce’s RFID-powered self-checkout technology and mobile point-of-sale system, retailers can keep customers happy and encourage more sales in-store. The quicker customers can shop, the happier they’ll be.”

Teamwork Commerce is an omnichannel company, providing retailers with point-of sale, order management, inventory control, CRM and analytics. It serves retailers in more than 20 countries. Customers include Acne Studios, The Row, Asics, Princesse Tam Tam, Comptoir des Cotonniers, and Moose Knuckles.
