How to Help Retail Customers Boost In-Store Traffic
Improving the checkout experience
Nothing deters an in-store purchase more than long lines at checkout. In fact, research has found that Americans will abandon a checkout line and leave a store without making a purchase after 8 minutes of waiting in a checkout line.
IoT now makes it possible for retailers to set up a system that reads the tag on each item a customer takes out of the store and then tallies them all up and automatically deducts the total cost from the customer’s mobile payment app. Not only will this save customers aggravation, it can save retail stores a lot of money. According to McKinsey, automated checkout can reduce cashier staff requirements by up to 75%–which could result in savings of up to $380 billion a year by 2025.
