Madic UK developing self-checkouts 

EPoS firm Madic UK, formerly TLM Technologies, is developing new home delivery and self-checkout services for its forecourt and convenience partners. 

The firm’s managing director, Adrian Felton, told RN it has three options of self-checkouts available to stores. He said: “A lot of customers have requested self-checkouts. We’ve got the traditional one, which is set up on a pedestal on the shop floor, and one which can sit on the till. 

“An extension of that is a hybrid system where there’s a 15-inch screen facing the customer. The cashier can stand behind the counter and serve, scan a barcode and then the machine can go into self-checkout mode allowing customers to do it themselves. It gives staff flexibility. Over the next three-to-six months, we’ll have 250 of these going out the door.”

Felton added the firm was also having conversations to make more home delivery services available to stores. Last year, Madic struck a partnership with Deliverect, allowing stores to manage multiple home delivery providers from one central service. 

Felton said: “Our customers are talking to other suppliers who provide a similar service. 

“Another development we’re doing is dynamic pricing to set up certain rules for different promotions at breakfast or dinner. It’s about looking a bit further at what we can do to help retailers increase their revenue.”
