Research Triangle Park, North Carolina-based Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions will be exhibiting Feb. 26-28 at The NGA Show at the Caesars Forum Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The company will showcase its portfolio of solutions at booth No. 1339, demonstrating how retailers can provide personalized interactions with shoppers and improve their operations.
As the grocery landscape continues to evolve, retailers must embrace a “unified commerce” approach to succeed. A study conducted by Incisiv and Toshiba revealed that self-checkout technology is a staple in the industry, with 94 percent of grocers offering or planning to offer self-checkout options in stores. Consumer interest in “buy online pick up in store” continues to grow, requiring retailers to adjust across digital and brick-and-mortar channels to unify experiences and make lasting consumer relationships.
“It is critical for retailers to have the freedom to accelerate and meet the demands of consumers to drive retention and loyalty in an authentic way,” said Rance Poehler, president and CEO.
“We provide a full ecosystem of resources for retailers that includes hardware, self-service and software solutions like our ELERA Commerce Platform. Our robust partner network also plays a vital role in connecting us with retailers across various segments to provide tailored technology solutions that meet their unique needs.”
Toshiba’s partner and independent software vendor LOC Software (booth No. 1725) will showcase demonstrations of its store management suite software integrated with Toshiba’s self-service software running on the Pro-X Hybrid Kiosk. The solution presents retailers with features that address demands across service and convenience for their shoppers. Both companies will showcase the joint solution in their booths during the show.
“We’re excited that LOC Software successfully completed testing with Toshiba’s CHEC software application on the Pro-X Hybrid Kiosk. The new software integration and hardware solution creates new offerings and opportunities to empower retailers to meet the evolving demands of their industry,” said Guy Leger, VP of sales and marketing at LOC Software.
“Our joint presence at NGA will show participants how we are partnering to create solutions that enable grocers to deliver a fully connected platform that links stores, customers, and data.”
The Incisiv research presented key findings and analysis from a study of more than 135 retail executives. The study was designed to understand retailers’ outlook and attitude towards unified commerce as an enabler of key growth strategies.
