Are You Looking for a Solution to Labor Problems? Here It Is: Erply’s Self-Checkout POS

Have you ever wondered why the queues in cafés or shops are so long and move along excruciatingly slowly? Or maybe you’ve discovered to your dismay that the checkout you selected is missing a service clerk? Sadly, this is the reality – great service clerks are an expensive and rare resource.

Multitasking is one of the main causes of slow customer service – naturally, a barista needs to be able to simultaneously make a great cappuccino, serve customers quickly and accept payments. In essence, they’re doing the work of several people, but the turnover of most companies isn’t enough to hire a lot of customer service clerks.

But a solution does exist. The customer can be put in charge of making their own choices and handling the payment, effectively leaving the service clerk to do his/her job.

Erply’s self-checkout POS makes all this possible!

What is Erply’s Self-Checkout POS about?

Erply’s new self-checkout is so simple, logical and reliable that every customer can manage it with a breeze. This is by far the best and most contemporary solution on the market – the program is small and streamlined and allows you to personally assemble all your checkout hardware.

Erply’s self-checkout POS is an independent program that you can begin using immediately after you’ve installed it on your device. It can handle all basic operations you might expect from a self-service – it includes a quick menu and product search, can print receipts or send them directly to an email address, and, naturally, supports card payments.

Erply’s self-checkout has language selection and one other important innovation – the customer can read the products’ labels, ingredients or further details on the checkout screen.

To make using the self-checkout even easier, a small animated instruction window is displayed in the corner of the screen.

What Does Erply’s Self-Checkout POS Offer?

The checkout is equipped with a touchscreen and intuitive UI that has shortcut buttons for all basic functions. The customer can use the quick-selection menu to add popular items to their purchase at the push of a button – no scanning needed.

Product Information

  • Erply’s self-checkout offers three product identification methods: scanning the barcode, entering the code manually or selecting the product from the quick-selection menu.
  • Erply’s self-checkout has a unique function that allows the customer to read the product label or ingredients list by clicking on the product line.

Erply’s self-checkout POS lets the customer rest assured that they’re getting what they want before paying for a product.
  • You can change and select product quantities at the push of a button.

Weighed Goods

Anything Else You Should Know about Using Erply’s Self-Checkout POS?

If the customer encounters a problem when making the purchase, the administrator can help them out at the checkout, e.g. by removing a product from the receipt, etc. Administrators are users that have been assigned PIN codes by the company and can use these to log into the system.

Since the self-service POS isn’t opened and closed at the start and end of a day (e.g. there’s no need to count or declare the money), it’s perfectly fine to leave the system running overnight. Naturally, it’s completely OK to shut it down as well – once the data has been entered into the POS, it’ll always be operational immediately after it is turned on.

All transactions that go through the self-checkout will also be entered into the back office.

Erply’s self-checkout POS is linked to your Erply account, which means that you must be Erply’s customer to use it. If you’re not yet a customer, contact our customer support for the best offer!
