LiveArea Debuts Pioneering In-Store Checkout Technology for Retailers at CES 2021
Shoppers can safely checkout without an app using LiveArea Scan & Go™
January 7, 2021
New York, NY – January 7, 2021 – LiveArea, a global customer experience and commerce agency, and a business unit of PFSweb, Inc., (NASDAQ: PFSW), will debut LiveArea Scan & Go™ at CES 2021. The proprietary retail technology from LiveArea allows in-store shoppers to shop safely and avoid checkout lines without having to download any retail mobile app.
LiveArea Scan & Go helps shoppers:
- Scan the barcodes on products they want
- Use mobile payments on their own devices
- Avoid checkout lines and leave after a store associate scans a digital receipt
LiveArea’s self-service technology allows retailers to:
- Sell more products with fewer associates
- Create a better experience for customers by eliminating checkout lines
- Attract new customers concerned with social distancing
- Rapidly deploy contactless payment options within weeks
- Avoid costly hardware installations and maintenance
- Seamlessly integrate into existing commerce solutions, customer profiles, and loyalty programs
“Today’s shoppers need to have the option of unattended retail moments,” said Jim Butler, Executive Vice President and General Manager at LiveArea. “Forcing shoppers to download apps to checkout is not a customer-first approach. Our customizable contactless solution lets consumers shop, pay, and checkout at their own pace, bringing the convenience of an online experience into physical stores.”
“Making checkout safe and easy is a priority for all retailers today,” explained Valerie Vacante, Director of Strategy at LiveArea. “We designed LiveArea Scan & Go to accommodate contactless payments for retailers and bring to customers the benefits of a buy-and-go experience without an app.”
LiveArea Scan & Go, an innovation created in LiveArea’s Product Innovation practice, is compatible with major eCommerce platforms, including Salesforce Commerce Cloud, SAP Commerce Cloud, Magento, and BigCommerce. The offering builds on LiveArea’s proven expertise on these platforms and the company’s partnerships with major platform providers.
