Smart store concepts: shopping around the clock
The digitization of the retail industry has led to brick-and-mortar stores becoming more intelligent. Automated store concepts have become established in which the shopping process is largely digital and unmanned.
Sensor and image recognition technologies play an important role here. However, they are also used in conjunction with other applications such as "smart" shelves that monitor stock and detect out-of-stocks, electronic price tags, and intelligent scales.
What are the different smart store concepts?
Self-checkout: Customers are responsible for scanning and paying for the goods themselves all the time.
Scan & Go: While shopping, customers scan the goods themselves and the payment process is automatic.
Grab & Go: Here, virtually everything is automated via sensors and image recognition software, the customer identifies himself or herself with a QR code when entering the store, selects the desired goods and leaves the store again.
Vending machine stores: Here, the customer simply operates a touchscreen to select products. In the background, robots collect the goods.
It is one of the hottest topics in the retail industry: smart stores. At EuroShop 2023, too, much revolved around the technologies that enable autonomous shops. In videos and highlight tours, exhibitors give tips on which tech solutions retailers can use to create a seamless and hypermodern shopping experience.
To that end, the presentations on the stages at EuroShop 2023 are also worth watching. In our on-demand offer you can watch the talks of the Store Design Stage, the Connected Retail Stage, the Retail Technology Stage and the Expo + Event Stage online.
ALDI Nord is developing the next generation of discounter with Shop & Go – an autonomous store concept. Sinanudin Omerhodzic, ALDI North, and Michael Gabay from Trigo talked about how technology is improving the shopping experience.
How to resolve the checkout dilemma?
Nils Bergmann from payfree GmbH reported on the "VR Payment" self-checkout system. He gave examples of how brands such as L'Oréal and Bundesliga soccer team Eintracht Frankfurt are using the technology.
Smart stores: autonomous shopping experience
Many retailers are introducing shopping solutions that enable a smooth checkout process. We spoke with Kende Retail Operation about their autonomous container warehouse and with Pentland Firth Software about their EASY Shopper smart shopping cart.
