Transforming the POS Experience December 22th, 2020

Transforming the POS Experience

This year has been different, for sure, especially for those struggling to continue operating in retail environments. Thanks to the widespread COVID-19 Pandemic, many have resorted to limiting the amount of people in the premises at one point, or even shutting down entirely to help stop the spread of the virus. As we near the end of the year, this world has come very far, but we are long time away from stopping the spread indefinitely. To combat this deadly illness, the hospitality industry is working to enhance the customer experience through the power of technology and their accommodating solutions, such as introducing mobile POS systems into each environment to help push operations onward in a smooth and seamless manner.

No retail environment is going to look and operate the same way. Whether the business is closed to public and is only operating with running curbside orders outside or settling Buy-Online-Pickup-In-Store (BOPIS) offerings from inside the back office, they are doing all that they can to survive during unprecedented times. If operations have gotten back to slightly normal, that’s a great win for businesses everywhere, but regardless of a retailer’s situation, there is always a need for a great Point-of-Sale System that offers future-proofed flexibility into the ever-changing retail landscape, no matter what kind of customer demands are thrown their way.

The NCR CX8 POS Terminal provides exceptional performance and durability all in one small, but complex modular unit. The CX8 is fast, innovative, and relentlessly reliable, saving you money and effort all at the same time. This unit can be integrated with any of NCR’s family of displays, printers, scanners/scales, cash drawers, and other retail peripherals, to provide some relief to retail workers as the holiday season approaches, especially as we are all struggling to survive and thrive during a global pandemic. If you’re interested in how your customers can benefit off of integrating this solution into their retail environments, be sure to contact your BlueStar Representative today.
