February 21, 2019

EuroCIS took place in Düsseldorf 19th-21st February 2019. The fair featured retail trends, inventions and solutions for our time – and for the future. With nearly 500 exhibitors and over 49% top management visiting the fair, it was essential for innovative technology companies and retailers to attend.

Trond Kongrød, StrongPoint‘s Senior Vice President for EMEA markets, recalls Euro CIS 2018: “EuroCIS is an excellent place to meet important local clients and to present our newest solutions. At the same time, last year’s experience has shown that the fair also attracts many visitors from other countries.“

StrongPoint was exhibiting at Hall 9, stand D42. It brought several solutions for retailers who are seeking to improve how they do business.

New concepts displayed

• E-Commerce Logistics Solution, helping retailers manage their online orders better.
Click & Collect temperature lockers allow retailers to offer flexible collection times from convenient locations. In the meantime, order picking with pick-by-light technology increases picking efficiency by 15-30%. With this integrated solution, retailers have more time to focus on providing excellent customer service.

• Self-checkout, integrated with Select & Collect and Yoti age verification application is the only self-service tobacco purchasing solution on the market. Automated age verification allows to sell tobacco items in an efficient way. With the Yoti app customers can independently complete age verification in a few simple steps. Retailers no longer need to stock tobacco at the check-outs, they reduce shrinkage and retain customers who are only coming to the store for tobacco.

• A self-payment solution CashGuard Unico available as “cash as a service”. Payments using Unico are done 30-75% faster compared to manual cash handling. CashGuard Premium, a product already favored by small businesses in Germany will also be presented during the fair.

StrongPoint welcomed many visitors at the stand and here are some pictures from the exhibition:
