HELLWEG Die Profi-Baumärkte - Scan & Go in the professional hardware store

Scan & Go in a DIY store? What are the advantages for the customer? - There are several reasons for this: Customers scan their items themselves while shopping. After starting the payment process, the app generates a QR code that is transferred to the checkout provided specifically for Scan & Go. Here, payment is uncomplicated and fast. There is no real checkout line. Even bulky and unhandy items do not delay the checkout, as the items only have to be scanned once by the customer. A perfect example of this is a large purchase with many products. These no longer have to be placed on the checkout belt. Additional effort can thus be avoided. Especially during the season, when DIY stores are bursting at the seams with capacity, Scan & Go makes shopping more pleasant.

When visiting the DIY store, however, it is often not a matter of haste or speed for the do-it-yourselfer. They take their time and seek detailed advice. Self-checkout makes it possible for employees who normally staff checkouts to talk to customers again. In the same way, the professional craftsman can make a quick purchase under time pressure and no longer has to queue at the regular checkout - because here the efficiency applies: time is money!
