If the shopping atmosphere doesn’t feel inviting, I rather do online-shopping at home

With ever-shortening delivery times I only visit a store if I know the product is actually available

If I exactly know I want to buy I don’t want to spend ages looking for the product

I mainly go to a store if I need extensive advice or guidance – otherwise I can just buy it online

Visiting physical stores still provides unique qualities

Digital Butler

Central and first point of contact and the entrance to the following in-store „customer journey“

Stele for targeted customer information and access control

The experiences in 2020 were drastic. In the past months, the retail industry has been dealing with a completely changed and more sensitive buying behaviour. Distance rules, disinfection, customer and employee protection as well as customer confidence are important issues.

Controlling the customer flow

Only controlled access to the shop area means security for customers and team. Waiting times must be taken into account and scheduled in the customer journey. The Digital Butler is the right solution for the first, so important customer contact. The Digital Butler has been developed for contactless access control, waiting communication and a targeted control of customer flows. The software enables variable use according to the needs of the respective shop.

Ensure safety

With the digital, contactless entrance control you enable the application of distance rules and, if necessary, respect the allowed number of people per square metre. This gives you maximum freedom to react flexibly and appropriately to the respective circumstances in these di icult times.

Information and Marketing

While the customers are waiting, services and actions can be shown on the display or, for example, the customer card can be scanned. If required, a customizable slide show that shows promotions and services automatically starts up.

Future-proof

The system is based on a uniform software platform and is therefore particularly suitable for branches or chains. With the pre-installed software, additional functions can be easily activated later. Add-ons such as a disinfectant dispenser and visitor registration will be available soon.
