RCH Group to exhibit at EuroShop, February 16-20, 2020

RCH Group to exhibit at EuroShop, February 16-20, 2020

TREVISO, Italy, 2020-Jan-27 — /EPR Retail News/ — This February (16-20), RCH Group will be exhibiting at EuroShop, the world’s largest trade fair for retail investment requirements. On booth #G49 in Hall 6 the company will introduce a number of new POS solutions – responding to the future-oriented and dynamic trends of the retail industry and building upon the technological and aesthetic capabilities that sit at the core of RCH’s product development.

Improving the strategic abilities of small and medium operations with improved analytics and accountancy

A key element of RCH’s attendance at the show will be the international debut of the WALLE 8T – a product which aims to evolve the concept of Smart ECR and increase the ability of small and medium retail operations to engage in effective fiscal management and financial analytics.

WALLE 8T constitutes a POS unit that contains an 8″ TFT color video keyboard and capacitive touchscreen, with high brightness and 1024×600 resolution. It also includes a high quality graphic thermal printer. However, whilst the WALLE 8T contains all of the high-level physical specifications that are associated with RCH products standard, including a highly elegant design, what sets this new model apart is the high degree of interoperability that is facilitated by the use of Android-based software. This software provides exceptional usability by unifying interface and functionality, allowing businesses to create an adaptable, tailored, flexible solution to their money handling activities.

With intuitive front-end operability and highly flexible back-end analytics and accountancy features, even small retailers now have the opportunity to understand their business and make strategic decisions based on the data they generate.

In addition to the WALLE 8T, RCH will also be demonstrating a range of new product evolutions, with a focus on meeting the aesthetic needs of retail outlets.

Novelty with a Vintage look

Whilst RCH always prides itself on the technological developments that increase the functionality and usability of its products, there is also recognition that supporting the strategic goals of customers will not always spring exclusively from technological innovation alone. The aesthetics and atmosphere of retail venues are key strategic components for a business, and cash registers constitute an incredibly visible element within a store.

For this reason, RCH is proud to introduce the Cortina 59. With metal drawer and printer, the Cortina embodies a stylish, vintage design that fits well into retail environments that are seeking a more nostalgic aesthetic that reminds of past cash registers. Available in five different colours (white, black, blue, red, yellow), the Cortina 59 doesn’t just meet the functional needs of a commercial environment, but in itself becomes a beautiful centrepiece – actively contributing as a piece of decoration and functional furniture. Electronic based capabilities with all of the RCH functionality you expect, embodied in true mechanical charm.

NEW Robust POS product

For retail environments that do favour a modern and slick aesthetic, at the other end of the RCH design spectrum is the A-IRON. Part of the ATOS 15 range – and therefore embodying all of the usability, versatility and functionality expected from RCH’s signature line – the A-IRON combines aluminium and steel into the physical POS unit to enhance an image of modernity and elegance, with clean lines and a solid appearance.

President and CEO of RCH Stefano De Pra, stated: “Our path to innovation is a combination of creativity and market needs, elegant design and functional aspects. Technological innovation sits at the core of our products – as its beating heart, but a diverse range of beautiful external aesthetics makes them fit-for-purpose in a variety of retail contexts. The novel products we are introducing this year at EuroShop will meet the expectations of an international market that appreciates reliability, the use of resistant, robust materials and considered design that combines to create easy-to-use and decorative POS products.”

New website automatically issues XPAND Codes that can be read from 200 meters/700 feet


Smart city with XPAND Code

TOKYO, Japan, 2019-Dec-4 — /EPR Retail News/ — XPAND K.K., which develops and manages the spatial link XPAND Code, has launched XPAND Code Generator, a website that automatically issues XPAND Code. The paid version “XPAND Code Pro”, which has existed from before, can now be issued instantly through a credit card payment. Furthermore, a free version “XPAND Code Gratis” with ads that can be used commercially has been newly released.

Receiving support from the Japanese government and others, XPAND has been attending exhibitions in Europe and Asia since this summer to carry out PR activities to many users, but the launch of this site is expected to expand usage around the world.

“While touring Europe and Asia, I could feel a high level of interest surrounding XPAND Code. As there were inquiries regarding actual usage during events at cities in Asia and the Middle East, there were high hopes for the launch of a website for automatic issuance. From now on, I believe that new services that connect cities and smartphones will come out one after another,” said Nanmoku, Founder / CEO of XPAND.

XPAND Code is a barcode for space that was created during the design process for traffic signs. Nanmoku developed this as a way to expand information on signs while working on the designs of Tokyo Metro train information signs for the 2020 Olympic Games. This new barcode follows in the footsteps of EAN/UPC Code and QR Code links with your smartphone even from far away distances without ruining the design of the sign or scenery. XPAND Code is assumed for use in stadiums, airports, railways, buses, large commercial facilities, public institutions, outdoor advertising, etc. In addition to locations such as restaurants all over Japan, XPAND Code has started to be utilized in public transportation and public spaces.

In April, an experiment was conducted at Japan’s largest football stadium, and XPAND was able to get the experiment result that it can be read from more than 200 meters/700 feet. Since it was easy to read, it would be expected to read from a longer distance.

See a movie at:

In the second half of 2019, XPAND has received recognition from the Japanese government, the Tokyo Metropolitan government, JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization), and JCCI (Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry) in succession and has focused on exhibiting at shows in Germany, Indonesia, China, and Japan.

In January 2020, it will exhibit at “ISPO Munich” as one of 10 companies selected by the Tokyo Metropolitan government.

Top 6 costume ideas for this Halloween to pair with your favorite glasses!

New York, NY, 2019-Oct-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — Spooky Season is upon us, which means two things for me; binge-watching Hocus Pocus and Halloween!

But with Halloween comes the age old question, what am i going to wear? It’s the one time out of the year where you can go all out, whether you’re serving looks or serving spooks, Halloween is Christmas for Jack Skellington and some creative fans! But as someone who wears glasses and doesn’t enjoy wearing contacts, it can be hard to find the right costume where my glasses actually makes sense with the character!

Every year finding the perfect costume is a real struggle it’s always the same dilemma and every year I hear the same rambling of ideas “I want to wear something sexy, but like also something scary that shows off my curves but also covers me up and just something that breathes but is also really heavy but it HAS to be creative but also really simple…” Someone who ends up going as a sexy cat.

But Halloween shouldn’t be about looking sexy, I mean wow you’re going as a sexy nurse? No, a medical professional would know to put clothes on in this weather.

See? It’s just not realistic. But if spooky isn’t your thing, I’ve got you covered.

Instead the best looks are when you fully committed to the look, be the Meryl Streep of Halloween, as long as the final look is BEWITCHING!

Here are the top 6 Halloween costumes perfect for fellow glasses wearers:

  • Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, we recommend this pair of Anoushka Tom Ford to have your own Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
  • The iconic rocket man, Sir Elton John. Get this Spitfire Hype Gold/ Red Mirror pair and be ready to make some tiny dancer moves.
  • Our favorite wizard Harry Potter, buy the Emerson by SmartBuy collection.
  • John Lennon, this round Polaroid come in every color. Just need to find your other 3 beatles.
  • Hop on the mystery machine and put this SmartBuy collection Polly to get Velma’s look.
  • Wear the timeless Ray-Ban wayfarer and get some Campbelle’s soup … Voila Andy Warhol.

Hopefully you’ve found some costume inspiration here, they’re not spooky but I guaranteed you will turn a few heads. Find all this eyewear options at Smartbuyglasses.com and get the Halloween special offer on glasses, not only for your costume but your daily wear.

RCH’s newly launched WALLE 8T POS meets complex fiscal reporting laws

RCH’s newly launched WALLE 8T POS meets complex fiscal reporting laws

TREVISO, Italy, 2019-Oct-14 — /EPR Retail News/ — RCH Group, provider of advanced point of sale systems for the retail, food and beverage, and public administration sector has introduced an all-in-one solution for retail businesses seeking to streamline their POS and fiscal operations. The WALLE 8T promises to significantly improve the ability of small and medium retail operations to efficiently perform, manage and monitor their financial and fiscal operations, and access data which can be key in strategic development of the firm.

“With the WALLE 8T we are seeking to evolve the concept of Smart ECR and present new solutions which are particularly relevant for small and medium sized retail operations, who until recently have been limited in their access to effective fiscal management and financial analytics” said Stefano Di Pra, CEO and President of RCH Europe. “The ease of use, high levels of configurability and accessible range of data outputs – which can all be accessed remotely – mean that even small retailers now have the opportunity to understand their business and make strategic decisions based on the data they generate.”

Software that maximises flexibility, hardware that maximises usability

The WALLE 8T constitutes a physical POS unit that contains an 8″ TFT color video keyboard and capacitive touchscreen, with high brightness and 1024×600 resolution. It also includes a high quality graphic thermal printer. However, whilst the WALLE 8T contains all of the high-level physical specifications that are associated with RCH products, including a highly elegant design, what sets this new model apart is the high degree of interoperability that is facilitated by the use of Android-based software. This software provides exceptional usability by unifying the interface and functionality allowing businesses to create an adaptable, tailored, flexible solution to their money handling activities.

Remote and real-time access to data with the Cloud RCH store

Moreover, the Android software deployed on the WALLE 8T unit allows for complete cloud-based management of all front and back end operations. This means that all processes can be managed remotely providing much greater flexibility in the way that fiscal affairs can be handled – especially in operations which maintain multiple sales sites. Details of financial operations are collated and presented in accessible and easy-to-read graphs and charts, and updated on a real-time basis to facilitate more reactive and dynamic analysis of sales activities. Additional elements such as disaster recovery allow users a much greater peace of mind in maintaining undisrupted monitoring and reporting of performance.

Streamlined front-end operations, comprehensive back-end analytics

Certainly, the WALLE 8T system integrates all of the front-end usability which is to be expected of RCH POS products.  With its high degree of intuitiveness which places important functions front and center, and significantly reduces the training time needed to use the systems. But it is not just this which sets the WALLE 8T apart. Instead, it is the back-end analytics and accountancy features which make the WALLE 8T and cloud-based Android operating system an important development in RCH’s range of solutions. Particularly important for countries which are introducing new and increasingly complex fiscal reporting laws, the WALLE 8T system has the flexibility to deliver data in a functional and easy-to-understand way, adaptable to the needs of the business and their operational context.

TOKYO, JAPAN, 2019-Jun-26 — /EPR Retail News/ — The new Double Mesh Metal Dripper by HARIO does not require a paper filter.

HARIO introduces a coffee dropper with a new concept – Immersion dripper SWITCH

SWITCH Technical data

TOKYO, JAPAN, 2019-Apr-18 — /EPR Retail News/ — In the spring of 2019, HARIO introduced a new coffee drop-off called SWITCH.

The brewing method can change the taste, aroma and strength of the coffee, even if it is brewed from the same beans. There are two basic ways to brew coffee. In one, the ground coffee is filtered with a device such as the V60. In this process, hot water is poured over the ground coffee several times at regular intervals. In the other method, the French Press or Siphon method, the ground coffee is dipped in hot water for a certain time, after which the coffee and ground coffee are separated ,

The SWITCH is easy to use. Put a paper filter in the dripper, pour water over the ground coffee and wait about 2 minutes. Then press the switch and the brewed coffee will run down.

An attractive feature of the SWITCH is the easy way to customize the brewing conditions. Simply vary the degree of grinding of the ground coffee and the brewing time to your taste.

The SWITCH offers the rich aroma of the French Press method with the clear taste of paper drop brewing, giving you the best of both brewing methods in a single dropper.

With the SWITCH you can always prepare coffee under the same brewing conditions. It will be a pleasure for you to compare the flavors of different coffee beans in this way.

With the SWITCH, HARIO will familiarize many customers with the infusion of coffee and introduce the excellent taste of the infused coffee.

Europe Halloumi Cheese Market: 76% of modern trade outlets and 92% of online grocery retailers had halloumi cheese in their offerings

DUBLIN 2, Ireland, 2018-Oct-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — Glancing through the dairy segment of retail aisles in Europe offers a clear comparison of preference for halloumi cheese than other cheese varieties. According to a Fact.MR study on halloumi cheese market76% of modern trade outlets and 92% of online grocery retailers had halloumi cheese in their offerings.

Not only has the consumer base expanded, but per capita consumption of Halloumi cheese has also witnessed an increase

Ease of availability is a key factor that has led to an increase in halloumi cheese sales worldwide, particularly in Europe. The Fact.MR study includes an analysis on the sentiments of retailers who did not have halloumi cheese in their product offerings – nearly 48% of the Eastern European retailers mentioned ‘increased customer enquiry’ about the availability of halloumi cheese over the past two years.

Furthermore, not only has the consumer base increased, but the per capita consumption has also surged in Europe. Apart from Cyprus, which is a clear outlier in terms of per capita consumption of halloumi cheese, average consumption in Europe stands slightly less than a pound per year.

Halloumi Cheese Demand Growing on the Backdrop of Specialty Cheese Preference

Along with increased consumer base and per capita consumption of halloumi cheese in Europe, there’s an another dimension that plays a critical role. “It’s the variety of specialty and halloumi cheese which consumers are inclined towards. “Organic” has become another buzzword these days, which is mostly due to increased health consciousness and lifestyle changes among consumers, says Mr. Shambhu Nath Jha, Senior Consultant at Fact.MR. “The selection process of grocery products has widely changed among several consumer clusters, as they are moving away from lucrative offers toward products with added health benefits. Labels and certifications on cheese products were not as important to consumers earlier as they have become now,” adds Mr. Jha.

Digital Visibility Acting as a Catalyst for Halloumi Cheese Sales in Europe

One of the key reasons for increasing demand for halloumi cheese is its increasing presence on e-commerce shelves. This has had a significant impact on awareness about the product.

Request methodology behind the report

https://www.factmr.com/connectus/sample?flag=RM&rep_id=1753

“Specialty online channels are gaining popularity across Europe, owing to significant consumer demand for specialty products from Tier II and suburban areas. Online grocery retailers have broadened the access of their offerings to reach a wider demographic. The ease of access provided by online channels has led to the multi-dimensional growth, which has augured well for the prospects of halloumi cheese producers,” opines Mr. Jha.

Halloumi cheese has been growing at double-digit growth rate through online retail, and it is further expected to increase in the years to come. Developing countries, especially India and China, have gained significant traction in the online grocery sales and due to this, several cheese manufacturers and traders have partnered with specialty online stores.

Brands are Positioning Halloumi Cheese as a Healthy Alternative to Conventional Cheese

“The reason halloumi cheese sells like hot cakes across Europe is because it’s so moreish. However, a question even avid consumers ask is, “It tastes so good, but can it, in some way, be healthy? And, the answers are encouraging. Halloumi cheese is an excellent source of calcium and protein, and moderate intake can be advantageous,” says Mr. Jha.

Halloumi cheese producers are leveraging these attributes of the product in marketing, and positioning it as a healthy alternative to conventional cheese. However, it’s worthwhile to note that halloumi cheese is high in saturated fats and salts, and too much of halloumi cheese consumption can aggravate certain health conditions. There are cheese variants that are healthier than halloumi – feta, mozzarella, and cottage cheese. However, halloumi is considered as a healthier option than goat cheese and cheddar cheese

Burgeoning Demand Exerting Pressure on Production Capacities

Halloumi cheese is native to Cyprus, however, the surge in its demand globally has encouraged the local dairy producers in other European and non-European countries to produce it domestically. As a result, foray of new players has been witnessed in the halloumi cheese market. The burgeoning demand for halloumi cheese in Europe, especially in the UK, has catalyzed efforts to implement a genomic scheme to boost production in Cyprus. “The way forward for greater halloumi production is industry-institution collaboration,” concludes Mr. Jha.

Non-Dairy Toppings Market: heightened penetration of dairy-free ice-creams across European retail stores and hypermarkets

DUBLIN 2, Ireland, 2018-Oct-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Europe non-dairy toppings market revenues continue to head north, as the growing vegan population ramps up demand for non-dairy ingredients. Shelves and aisles across European retail stores and hypermarkets have been observed with heightened penetration of dairy-free ice-creams. Higher visibility of non-dairy products on retail shelves substantiate the heightened demand for ingredients used to process such products, and non-dairy toppings are no different. Over the years, the number of Europeans preferring non-dairy dairy products has increased significantly, and by second quarter of 2018, over one percent of European population was identified to be vegan, says a report published by Fact.MR on non-dairy toppings market.

A Potion out of Niche – Translating Vegan Folks to Value

The number of vegan population in the UK alone has increased by 350% within a decade. Among the people who have embraced veganism in the U.K., nearly 63% are women. Observing this shift, leading UK retailers such as Sainsbury’s and Tesco have introduced new range of vegan products. While the demand for vegan products and ingredients has amplified in Western Europe, frozen desserts and ice-creams are witnessing a surge in demand.

According to Fact.MR’s study, the popularity of non-dairy products is relatively higher in Germany, with over 60% of the Germans showing interest in non-dairy ice creams and frozen desserts wherein non-dairy topping is used for processing. Non-dairy ice cream ingredients which accounted for a mere 1% of the total ice cream ingredients demand in 2012, have grown up to sizeable 8% share in a span of five years in Western European countries.

The non-dairy toppings market has also been aided by celebrity endorsements and word-of-mouth by influencers on social media. This population base has translated into a sizable market for non-dairy topping producers, which have realigned their strategies to leverage the unfolded white space in European food & beverages market.

Lactose-averse Individuals Supplementing Non-dairy Toppings Demand

People who opt for non-dairy topping based products had to compromise with their choice of food, and lactose intolerant population group forms the leading chunk of this population group. Lactose intolerant individuals are allergic to food that contains dairy products, and are on targeted dietary plan such as Whole30 and the Paleo diet. With about 65% of European population reckoned to be lactose intolerant, and North European countries leading the list, the widespread preference and adoption for non-dairy topping is evident.

Furthermore, companies engaged in production of dairy based products also received consumer feedback of introducing key brands in non-dairy variants, and a few handful of market actors considered. European food & beverages market witnessed over 35 such product launch in last six quarter with non-dairy claims and almost 15 of those using non-dairy toppings.

Smart Scale Co. Unveils World’s First IoT Smart Scale Container, “Stashaweigh™”, at New West Summit

Oakland, California, USA, 2018-Oct-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — Smart Scale Co. announced today its October 11th launch at New West Summit of the world’s first IoT smart scale container for the cannabis industry. The patent pending “Stashaweigh™” is an industry-forward weighing device that utilizes the ease of Bluetooth connectivity via a smartphone app to make tracking and saving your cannabis history seamless.

Stashaweigh™ is the brainchild of inventor and entrepreneur Josh Lee, Founder and CEO of Smart Scale Co., which he created in 2017. Lee, in conjunction with a team of technology engineers, has a vision for smart data-sharing, powered by machine learning and advanced AI, that he hopes will shake up the cannabis market.

Lee recalls, “As a technology inventor I saw a lack of technology being built for the cannabis market that matched what was out in the mainstream marketplace. I chose to build the most technologically advanced stash container, the Stashaweigh™, a patent-pending IoT device that integrates a smart scale, connected smartphone app, and water and smell-proof container to manage your usage history by weight, day, time and strain.”

Stashaweigh™ allows its users to track and manage usage history through their smartphones, and gives accurate weight, date, and time feedback while storing precise dosage history during each session. The company will use machine learning and AI to track and predict user habits from around the country that give dispensaries, growers, scientists, and medical professionals tools to more accurately respond to consumer needs and trends.

“Our goal is not only to give consumers a secure device to store their cannabis, but to help them learn more about their usage habits, while giving them tools to manage their cannabis like never before. We are thrilled to launch our product at New West Summit, the industry-leading cannabis technology conference.”

Stashaweigh™ is the first container in a line of expected smart scale devices that make using, selling, prescribing, and growing cannabis smarter and more effective.

THIRD BOOK OF VERSE FROM THE PEOPLE’S POET MICK COLLISS

Perth, Australia, 2018-Sep-20 — /EPR Retail News/ — Mick Colliss has delivered his poems all over the world. From Centre Court at Rod Laver Arena, to Olympic athlete functions, to audiences in the United States.

Now the author, poet, guest speaker, commentator and former vice-captain of the Australian Sudoku team has released a new collection of verse – his third.

His poems are dry, funny, occasionally moving and uniquely Australian.

Titled What Rhymes with George? his book contains over 40 different poems written over the past 10 years and covers a range of sports, occasions and anecdotes as well as tributes to individuals including Dennis Commetti, former Wallaby Nathan Sharpe and events like the San Jose copper mine rescue and the devastating Queensland flood.

“In 2003 the West Coast Eagles asked me to write a poem to commemorate Glen Jakovich’s 250th game,” Colliss said. “My first thought was: what rhymes with Jakovich?”, which became the title of my first book. I took it in to Radio 6PR in Perth and gave a copy to the legendary broadcaster, George Grljusich. He looked at the title and answered “Grljusich”.

“I thought of calling this book What Rhymes with Grljusich? in honour of the great man but thought it would be too hard to find on Google, so called it What Rhymes with George? instead.

“It’s much easier to spell.”

Colliss has been writing his unique form of poetry for many years and his work has appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Sunday Times, Australian Rugby News and The West Australian. He has written on request for organisations including the West Coast Eagles, the WA Olympic Committee, the WACA, Western Force, Fremantle Dockers and Ronald McDonald House.

The foreword of What Rhymes with George? has been written by Basil Zempilas, most notably of Channel 7 and Radio 6PR.

Mick’s most recent commissioning was to write a poem for Tennis Australia, which he performed on centre court at Rod Laver Arena – with luminaries such as Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King, Frank Sedgman and Laver himself standing alongside – during the 2018 Australian Tennis Open.

What Rhymes with George? is available at selected outlets and online at https://www.whatrhymeswithgeorge.com

How to Boost Your Retail Store Profits Absolutely Free?

How to Boost Your Retail Store Profits Absolutely Free?

Ecofabrik announces an innovative profit growth program for fashion boutiques and retail apparel stores.

Oxnard, CA, 2018-Aug-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — Ecofabrik Organic Gear is introducing a unique partnering for profits co-op program for selected organic apparel boutiques and fashion retail stores. This is a rare opportunity and perhaps a unique concept where Ecofabrik assumes all upfront costs associated with product sourcing/purchasing, importing, and warehousing including shipping and handling of products to their partner resellers. Once the “reseller partner” has been selected and approved, agreed upon earth-friendly products will be placed in their store. All products will be retail ready with hang tags and barcode labels affixed. Retailers will scan and sell the merchandise and pay Ecofabrik once a month for what was sold after deducting a generous percentage of the MSRP as the retailer’s share. Ecofabrik will also pay for the S&H if the retailer needed to return/replace any merchandise. Basically, this is a great opportunity for selected retailers to increase their market share and maximize their profits without risking a dime of their own.

Ecofabrik believes that many organic apparel products made from Bamboo, Hemp, and Organic Cotton are imported into USA from China, India, Bangladesh and other Asian countries. This involves product sourcing, negotiating with foreign suppliers, shipping agents and working with US custom authorities and clearing agents. This is a painstaking process that requires special skills, substantial cash investment and is fraught with supply chain risks. “We have developed in-depth expertise in import business over the past ten years which allows us to bring fair trade, quality products into the US market in an efficient and cost-effective manner,” said Homer Dakaz, a managing partner of Ecofabrik. “We will be extending this competitive advantage to our “reseller partners” to help increase ours & their market share and profitability with zero investment and no risk on their part.”

Ecofabrik’s Marketing Manager; Joe Ecosapien is inviting green businesses to contact him to learn more about this exciting opportunity. While he is very confident about the success of this program, he remains cautious as to how it will be perceived by the business community. “Some store owners will dismiss this outright as a laughably simplistic business model. A few, however, will be willing to give it a go as an excellent business opportunity. We will carefully select only a few like-minded “reseller partners” from each state in the USA to ensure the success of the program. However, a basic requirement of joining the program is to own a brick & mortar store and good standing within the business community of their geographic retail market”, said Joe.

Only green businesses; fashion boutiques and retail stores that sell earth-friendly casual apparel for men and women need to contact. Ecofabrik deals only in products made of organic cotton, bamboo, hemp and other earth-friendly/sustainable fabrics. A collection of these products can be seen at their website; www.ecofabrik.com

NEW AT FAFGA 2018: ATOS NOW WITH STYLISH AND ROBUST VESA MOUNT AND ARM

TREVISO, Italy, 2018-Jul-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Technology is revolutionising the way in which we live and do business. In the hospitality industry where speed and quality of service is critical, organisations must embrace the latest POS technology if they are to maintain a competitive edge in today’s fast-paced digital world. FAFGA is the leading trade fair for the hotel and catering sector, taking place in Innsbruck, Austria from September 10th to 13th 2018.

Following a very successful show in 2017, RCH Group is returning to FAFGA for a second year to fortify its presence in the region and to demonstrate how its hardware and software smart selling solutions are revolutionising the Point of Sale as we know it. This time though, RCH Group will be represented by RCH Europe, the European operation launched in January 2018 and headquartered in Innsbruck. In Hall B0 on Stand 62A, visitors will see and experience a number of powerful cloud-based solutions, catering specifically to one or more points in the sales cycle. Each RCH product is based on decades of research and development and capable of interoperating with third-party systems.

The opening of RCH Europe in Austria has quickly enabled RCH Group to provide more effective and faster local support to its customers and reseller partners, further enhancing the trustworthy business relationships and high level of customer service that the company is renowned for. The increasing European customer base coupled with the necessity to have centralised operations to handle all regional deployments and after-sales technical support made Austria the ideal location.

“We attended FAFGA for the first time in 2017 and quickly discovered the exceptional opportunity the fair provided in accessing the right people within the hotel and catering business,” said Paolo Biasone, Sales Manager Austria and Germany at RCH Europe. “RCH Group has a long-standing history in providing POS solutions to the global hospitality and food and beverage industries. Given the increase of our European client base, notably in Austria and Germany, it therefore made absolute sense to base our European Headquarters in Innsbruck, close to our local customers. We look forward to meeting with current and new contacts at this year’s show.”

Cash or card! Global Retailers Linger on Paper Over Plastic!

Chennai, India, 2018-Jul-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Retail businesses, irrespective of size, accept payments through multiple modes (cash, card, mobile, internet banking, wallet, etc) but still many of them prefer cash over card to avoid regulatory complexities and hence devoid customers of their shopping rights and experience.

man in suit giving 1000 dollars another man

According to a survey by TD Bank recently, globally 70 per cent of SMEs prefer cash and cheques over card or online transactions. Though handling physical cash or cheques may be difficult, still cash rules in most of the Point of sale (POS) counters across several advanced countries in US and UK and developing countries like India and Brazil.

Retail experts agree that global POS market is still remain scattered and needs to be organized with the help of advanced technology. While the data has revealed that about 20% merchants use traditional POS systems, cloud-based POS systems by 17% while 24% retailers accept online payments.

Earlier, researches on global retail industry had indicated that though merchants and consumers were inclined to use new retail (POS) technology, they preferred cash to other mode of payments.

Consumer preferences and governments’ initiative to support cash-less payment have compelled retailers to accept all forms of payments, says Doug Mearkle, a senior official from TD Bank, which surveyed over 600 small retailers to understand how they are responding to modern transaction systems, cloud-based POS technology, cashless payment options and receptive to innovative ideas. The business owners surveyed were chosen from across fast growing economies and belonged to industries such as health care, retail, construction and entertainment.

TD Bank has indeed used the survey to create awareness among the merchants as to how various payment options and POS applications can be integrated in a single POS system to enhance business growth and effect customer experience.

Bhaskar Venkatraman, CEO and Director of Millennium India

As far as India, the digital payment system is fast catching up though there are still some teething problems such as inhibition to shift from conventional to modern business system, acceptance of card payments due to high transaction charges and low penetration of debit/credit cards and online payment options among rural folks.

“POS applications can be integrated into a single system to provide small business owners a potent tool which can perform multiple functions and offer several researched data which they can use for business betterment. Modern POS systems can provide some crucial business data which retailers can’t get following traditional methods,” says Bhaskar Venkatraman, CEO and Director of Millennium India, a pioneer in introducing POS technology to Indian retail merchants.

For example, a small retailer who sells grocery or ready-made clothing can forecast daily sales and plan to improve sales and profitability. An integrated POS can help him to decide on staff strength on particular day or occasion, understand the inventory position or requirement, number of customers visiting the shop on daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis and individual customer’s buying pattern.

Though small-business owners are aware of the new features and advantages, but still there are some misconceptions and inhibitions which stop the majority of them from adopting the POS innovation, Mearkle concludes.

So to say, it is difficult to “cash” on the modern POS technology to improve business by some retailers!
