As stores are set to reopen, Mobile POS provides a seamless flow from customer service to final transaction, supporting social distancing post COVID-19 lockdown.

Shaws Department Stores reopening
Shaws, an established user of Eurostop systems with branches throughout Ireland is to implement mpos, a one-device mobile POS solution to support social distancing in-store. The majority of Shaws stores are scheduled to open from 15th June, with the retailer using the Eurostop solution as part of its reopening plans. The solution will be deployed in the Beauty department before rolling it out across other departments, with future plans to include Shaws concession partners. Customers will be able to social distance by dealing with just one member of staff for product consultations and then complete the purchase, without the need to go to a bank of tills.

The Eurostop mpos solution is based on the Sunmi P2 Lite and provides in built scanning, EPOS and integrated card payments on one device.

“Like many retailers we are looking at ways to safeguard our customers and staff as we reopen after the Coronavirus pandemic,” said Ian Fanning, Retail Director at Shaws. “The Eurostop mpos will enable us to minimise the number of interactions needed between staff and customers, because we can take payment for goods at any location within the store. This means that customers do not necessarily need to go to the fixed cash desks, supporting social distancing measures.”

Business Development Manager at Eurostop Stuart Ward added;

“At Eurostop we have specialised in developing systems for fashion, footwear and lifestyle retailers for over 30 years. The sector is extraordinarily resilient, and our aim is to deliver technology solutions that can help our many clients around the world open their doors to customers once again, and get back to what they do best. Our mobile and app based solutions, like mpos and MyShoppr® both enable retailers to improve the customer journey, while complying with social distancing rules.”
