Automated Retail Systems and Retail Automation
The automated retail industry is one of the two core technology showplaces today (financial Services being #2).
- Emerging technologies such as robotics, lockers, digital signage, vending and automated vending lead the way. Amazon and Google revolutionize physical delivery. OuterWall has another great idea (or not).
- More mature retail technology includes interactive displays, next generation POS, mobile interplay, multi-touch, kiosks for self-service, video services and customer service technology.
- Companion technologies include ATMs, kiosks, Advanced ATMS, NFC and thin client.
- Standards – here we have more regulatory guidelines in play along with more standards than any other industry. PCI, OPOS, JPOS, MPOS, HIPAA, ADA, UL, CE just to name a few.
