Self-checkout stations can be found across many grocery stores, and some forward-thinking fashion retailers are also adopting this system, provided that they have come up with a solution to deal with the issue of loss prevention.
Considering that consumers leaving a store with large-ticket items is a concern, the idea of a self-service checkout for cars seems unheard of, but Imperial Cars recently implemented one in its showroom.
After shopping around for a new car and filling out any necessary legal paperwork, those who want to use ‘The Fast Lane’ may drive straight up to the kiosk. At this station, they are able to touch the screen of a tablet to enter their personal details and have the system verify that they car they are driving away with is indeed their new purchase.
