Glory Global Solutions and ITAB Present New Express Self-Checkout Solution for Global Retail Environments.

Integrated Cash Management Improving the Customer Experience at Hayunga’s Edeka.

BASINGSTOKE, England--()--Glory Global Solutions, leader in secure cash management solutions has signed a contract with ITAB, Europe’s leading supplier of retail shop fitting concepts, to supply Glory cash handling systems enabling a new flexible self-checkout (SCO) solution with integrated cash management capabilities.

The integration of Glory’s CashInfinity® compact cash recycling system CI-10 into ITAB’s MoveFlow, TwinFlow and EasyFlow checkout units, creates a new and complete solution enabling coin and note recycling in a variety of self-checkout styles.

Hayunga’s Edeka, part of Edeka Nord, recently implemented the MoveFlow with CI-10 at their award winning, flagship store in Elmshorn, Germany. With the aim of creating a more efficient customer flow and improved customer experience, Hayunga’s chose the customizable, compact and intuitive “basket-to-bag” solution. Kerstin Kreimann, Manager of E-Center Hayunga’s says "The new solution minimizes the need for staff interventions, provides the highest levels of convenience for our customers and is aligned with the company’s strategy around innovation to improve the customer experience we deliver.”

Glory’s retail cash management solution CASHINFINITY®, enhances both point of sale and back office operations. Where the CI-100 back office solution is added, the CI-10 and CI-100 combination enables secure closed cash management across the entire store.

“We chose to install the CI-100 in the back office of all 5 of our stores.” Kreimann continues, “The Glory cash recycling system meets all our business requirements; reducing cash handling time and improving security. In the Elmshorn store we are running the full closed cash management solution allowing centralised control of cash inventory and optimisation of all cash processes throughout the store.”

Adoption of self-checkouts continues to expand throughout Europe and North America, alongside a growing number of pilot schemes in Latin America and the Middle East. The continuing adoption of self-checkout solutions in markets around the world correlates with retailers providing choice to their customers to improve their in-store experience. An optimized integration of fast, reliable and secure cash recycling into the self-checkout environment delivers a clear cost benefit to retailers who are seeking to optimise their “retail cash chain”.

Sion Roberts, Executive Vice President Global Retail, Glory Global Solutions said, “Understanding of cash handling processes – and the costs linked to them – is becoming increasingly important to the market. Retailers are under pressure to look for efficiencies, improve margins and maximize customer focus– cash automation addresses this and will lower the costs significantly, whilst freeing up staff to focus more on their real asset – the customer.”

Patrik Rehnquist, Managing Director, Itab Scanflow commented, “The contract with Glory Global Solutions enables ITAB to maintain our industry-leading position for checkout solutions. In an increasingly competitive marketplace, we will jointly enable retailers to implement a efficient and safe self check out solution enabling staff to focus on customer service.”
