RCH Europe is the new international operation recently launched by RCH Group SpA to support its growing activities outside Italy, especially in the German-speaking markets.

“The convergence of digital and mobile technologies has transformed the way in which we do business, said Michele Stecca, Director of Exports at RCH Group. “To stay abreast of consumers evolving needs, merchants require intelligent software that can communicate with any device, whether it is connected via a cable or in the cloud. At Intergastra visitors will have the opportunity to see the benefits of using our smart hardware and software technologies in the management and automation of POS.”

Highlights at INTERGASTRA 2018

CLOUD SUPPORT
RCH was the first European company to introduce an Android interface for use in POS.

The Point of Sale is shifting towards a cloud-based environment, allowing merchants to remotely monitor and manage their systems from any device.

The back office provided by RCH is divided into two distinct sections: the first part allows merchants to monitor in real time the sales of each cash point from any device, such as a tablet, PC or smartphone. The second part enables complete management of the system’s programming, including personal registry, operators, customers, system configuration, and so on.

PRP 58 PORTABLE PRINTER
The company is now expanding its product line with the release of the PRP58 non-fiscal printing system. The PRP58 allows users to print bills from the waiter’s application bundled with Atos Software, for example.

ATOS Software: EASY INTEGRATION WITH THIRD PARTY APPLICATIONS
RCH’s ATOS software-based Android solutions are founded on open standards and can be easily integrated with various third-party applications and systems (scales, payments, kitchen monitors). ATOS software and its extended modules are fully designed in-house by the company’s Research and Development teams, delivering efficient and streamlined technical support to fully communicate with third-party systems. This results in a secure, reliable and modular product for each market requirement.

Smart and Elegant Designs
RCH’s products are conceived to be at the centre of the point of sale. Smart on the inside, each product has a distinguished and modern design made in Italy. An RCH product is characterised by its perfect combination of elegance with the simplicity of functionality.

RCH Europe is a member of the RCH Group that designs, produces and sells fiscal printers, fiscal and non-fiscal cash registers, and Point of Sale (POS) hardware and software. Since its foundation over 48 years ago, the company’s products, all conceived in Italy, are recognised across several markets for their advanced technology, smart designs, and ease of use.

Visa announces the availability of its suite of sensory branding for merchants, terminal manufacturers and developers

Verifone, Equinox Payments, Ingenico Group, and Poynt Sign-on to Pilot New Visa Sensory Branding: Sound, animation, and haptic (vibration) that signifies completed transactions

NEW YORK, 2018-Jan-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — NATIONAL RETAIL FEDERATION “BIG SHOW” – Visa (NYSE: V) today (Jan. 14, 2018) announced that its suite of sensory branding is now available as a pilot program for merchants, terminal manufacturers and developers. In a world increasingly filled with voice-commands, networked appliances and payment-enabled wearables, Visa’s unique sound, animation and haptic (vibration) cues signify completed, secure transactions in digital and physical retail environments when consumers pay using Visa.

“Our research has shown that Visa’s sensory cues signal speed, trust and convenience among consumers,” said Jack Forestell, head of global merchant solutions, Visa Inc. “As new payment experiences proliferate, we are helping our partners assure their customers that their transaction has been quickly and securely completed, no matter how they prefer to pay.”

Covering approximately 60 percent of the U.S. merchant point-of-sale terminal market1, manufacturers Equinox Payments, Ingenico Group, Poynt, and Verifone are working with Visa to pilot sensory branding with merchant partners in the coming year. According to a recent consumer study conducted in eight countries, 81 percent 2 of participants said they would have a more positive perception of merchants who used either the sound or animation cues. Additionally, less than a second in length2, the sound of Visa was found to signal speed and convenience.

“We are pleased that Visa will be first to take advantage of new Verifone capabilities that enable distinctive experiences for cardholders,” said Vin D’Agostino, executive vice president at Verifone. “We believe merchants and consumers benefit from a more personalized and relevant experience at check out and offer a powerful and open platform to allow innovators like Visa to create those experiences at the last inch of commerce.”

“Equinox is thrilled to be part of Visa’s innovative sensory branding initiative,” said Rob Hayhow, vice president, Equinox Payments. “Our Luxe family of devices has been designed to take full advantage of this technology by putting the customer experience at the forefront of every transaction.”

Visa’s sensory branding is scheduled to be available as a software development kit (SDK) for iOS, Android, and Web solutions on the Visa Developer Platform on January 31st. Developers can visit https://developer.visa.com/ to learn more about integrating the features into their solutions.

As a presenting sponsor of NRF 2018’s Innovation Lab, Visa’s sensory branding will be showcased at NRF 2018: Retail’s Big Show in New York, where attendees can test the technology through an immersive, interactive demonstration. To explore how industry leaders like Visa are forging new frontiers in digital transactions, Visa CEO Al Kelly will discuss the future of commerce and payments at the conference alongside Karen Katz, president and CEO, The Neiman Marcus Group, Inc. and Jon Fortt, co-anchor of CNBC’s “Squawk Alley” on Tuesday, January 16 from 10:30-11:15 am ET. Additionally, Matt Smith, vice president of Visa’s Platform Strategy will be hosting a panel of retailers directly after the keynote on the Innovation Lab Stage with Chris Plunkett (CMT Group) at 11:30 a.m. ET.

CVS Pharmacy’s announces new beauty imagery initiative to lead positive change around transparency in beauty

CVS Pharmacy’s announces new beauty imagery initiative to lead positive change around transparency in beauty

 

WOONSOCKET, R.I., 2018-Jan-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — CVS Pharmacy, the retail division of CVS Health (NYSE: CVS), today (January 15, 2018) announced a commitment to create new standards for post-production alterations of beauty imagery it creates for stores, websites, social media and any marketing materials. As part of this initiative, transparency for beauty imagery that has been materially altered will be required by the end of 2020.

The company also announced that it will introduce the “CVS Beauty Mark,” a watermark that will be used to highlight imagery that has not been materially altered. For this initiative, materially altered is defined as changing or enhancing a person’s shape, size, proportion, skin or eye color, wrinkles or any other individual characteristics. CVS Pharmacy will be working together with key brand partners and industry experts to develop specific guidelines in an effort to ensure consistency and transparency.

“As a woman, mother and president of a retail business whose customers predominantly are women, I realize we have a responsibility to think about the messages we send to the customers we reach each day,” said Helena Foulkes, President of CVS Pharmacy and Executive Vice President, CVS Health. “The connection between the propagation of unrealistic body images and negative health effects, especially in girls and young women, has been established. As a purpose-led company, we strive to do our best to assure all of the messages we are sending to our customers reflect our purpose of helping people on their path to better health.”

This new initiative is being introduced in an effort to lead positive change around transparency in beauty as well as to allow customers to differentiate between authentic and materially altered imagery. The CVS Beauty Mark will start to appear on CVS Pharmacy-produced beauty imagery in 2018 with the goal of all images in the beauty sections of CVS Pharmacy stores reflecting transparency by the end of 2020.

“We’ve reached out to many of our beauty brand partners, many of whom are already thinking about this important issue, to work together to ensure that the beauty aisle is a place that represents and celebrates the authenticity and diversity of the communities we serve,” Foulkes added. “We’ve been inspired by their willingness to partner with us to redefine industry standards around this important issue for the well-being of all of our customers.”

“Girls Inc. applauds CVS Pharmacy’s leadership commitment to showcase and celebrate beauty in all of its forms. As the national nonprofit dedicated to inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold, Girls Inc. is honored to be a partner in CVS Pharmacy’s movement to counter limiting stereotypes too often faced by girls and women. Allowing diversity and natural beauty to shine will have an immensely positive impact on girls and women everywhere.” said Judy Vredenburgh, Girls Inc. President & CEO.

CVS Health has previously made significant changes in its retail stores with the health of its customers in mind, such as ending the sale of tobacco products, delivering healthier food options throughout CVS Pharmacy stores and committing to remove certain chemicals of concern from all store brand beauty and personal care items by 2019.
