Trends and innovation in retail check-out
Although for decades and decades it has been a minor issue in the retail sector, the check-out process has become the new battleground for retail operations to engage and retain customers. This is part of the ongoing need to improve the customer experience in the physical shop and of course in the digital store.Long lines, coldness in customer service, lack of input, or the feeling that the counter is alien to the idea of the shop, are the enemies that must be fought, because they result in lost sales and revenue.

The post-covid future in the retail sector is omnichannel
If the global pandemic caused by covid-19 has made something clear to us, it is that confinement has changed consumer behavior.Given the impossibility of not leaving home but with the same needs (or even more, as a result of more free time to play sports, eat, cook ...) electronic commerce has become the perfect ally to make purchases with just one click, without setting foot outside the home. At the same time, the industry suffered from the slowdown in economic activity.The retail sector has been greatly affected by the coronavirus from different areas and perspectives: starting with the stoppage in industrial production and the drop in sales throughout the confinement, until the need to adapt factories and physical establishments implementing new measures of safety, hygiene, cleanliness and health. All of this, in turn, has led to the need for resilience to adapt to the new lifestyle.
