Optimize your Self-Checkout Technology Investment

Self-checkout (SCO) terminals present real challenges in terms of optimizing return on investment, integration costs, and keeping pace with rapid developments in this technology. Zynstra Virtualized Self-Checkout - moving the SCO application and operating system from the terminal hardware to a shared infrastructure virtual machine – addresses these challenges and changes the long-term investment economics of SCO.

Our solution is PCI compliant and centrally managed from the client’s datacentre, with high availability and peripheral support.

Reduce Cost and Improve Customer Experience

Self-Checkout (SCO) solutions require significant investment, represent an ever-increasing proportion of store revenue flows, and play a key role in the overall customer experience. Not surprising then that retailers are searching for ways in which they can improve customer satisfaction, reduce risk and control the cost of these solutions. Virtualization of SCO terminal software provides real cost and business flexibility benefits that can help retailers in maximizing their return on investment.
