"Bring Your Own POS" Self-Checkout Solution

Why are self-checkout systems so popular? What are the benefits? What are the drawbacks? These are all common questions we hear when retailers are considering bringing the technology into their stores and as they plan for self-checkout installations and national hardware roll-outs.

Bring Your Own POS Self-Checkout SCOSo, What’s Driving Self-Checkout (SCOs)?

While there’s an exhaustive list of benefits and advantages to self-checkout (SCO) solutions, and what’s driving retailers to install the technology, here are the highlights:

  • Self-checkouts mitigate labor shortages and turnover
  • Cashiers can be repurposed to help customers on the sales floor
  • Consumers have become comfortable with the technology and hardware
  • Many customers now expect and prefer self-service checkouts
  • Self-checkout systems are providing exceptional return-on-investment (ROI)

Are There Drawbacks to SCO Systems?

As with any technology, there are downsides to on-boarding new technology. The most common for self-checkouts are the following:

  • Initial self-checkout installation costs can be quite high
  • Without supervision or surveillance systems, risk for theft is increased
  • Some customers do not prefer self-checkouts
