Mönchengladbach, Germany — February 18, 2021 – Scheidt & Bachmann GmbH and Pyramid Computer GmbH today announced a partnership to promote self-checkout solutions at fuel retail sites.

With the growing acceptance of self-services by consumers in other areas of retail the introduction of self-checkout options at a fuel retail site is the next logical step. Therefore, Scheidt & Bachmann has developed its SIQMA Smoove smart checkout solution for which the company trusts in Pyramid Computer as hardware solution when it comes to proven self-checkout kiosks. Being market leading in this area, Pyramid Computer kiosk systems are already well established in major grocery retail or fast food chains.

Self-checkout solutions will enhance the customer journey at fuel retail sites greatly. The modern kiosk systems will add to an improved shopping experience by shortening waiting times for customers standing in line at the POS and providing additional services such as loyalty on boarding for example.

 “The Pyramid Computer hardware platform is the right fit to our innovative smart checkout solution especially designed to fit the fuel retail needs”, says Harald Pöpke, Product Manager at Scheidt & Bachmann.

The kiosk terminals are equipped with large screens that support intuitive customer interaction as well as state-of-the-art payment solutions that accept all different kind of payment methods incl. fuel cards and contactless payment also by mobile devices. They support the customers desire to avoid personal contacts during their shopping experience and speed up transactions. Thus for the fuel retailer a higher throughput and enhanced customer loyalty are clear benefits.

“We are very proud to work with Scheidt & Bachmann. Thanks to their expertise in the fuel retail market, the SIQMA applications are intuitive, easy to use and optimize the in-store customer experience.”, says Maximilian Rischau, Key Account Manager at Pyramid Computer
