SIQMA cloud solutions - genuine innovations for the industry for the first time at Tankstelle & Mittelstand in Münster
At this year's exhibition "Tankstelle & Mittelstand" in Münster we presented our latest solutions for modern shop management. Our stand was well visited and our use cases for innovative retail concepts and new services at petrol stations were particularly well received by the visitors. With its SIQMA product portfolio, Scheidt & Bachmann supports petrol station operators in optimising the customer journey and creating a positive experience for the customer at all touch points of the purchasing process.
Our cloud-based POS SIQMA POS 2.0 and the back office SIQMA Cloud BOS were the product highlights. With SIQMA POS 2.0 and the SIQMA Cloud BOS, we offer completely hardware-independent solutions that enable you to work on any device and offer the operator the greatest possible flexibility. At our stand we showed the solutions on the current iPad and iPad Pro hardware.
Our add-on to SIQMA POS 2.0 is the SIQMA Mobile POS especially for the car wash. With a surface optimized for sales at the car wash, SIQMA Mobile POS now offers the possibility to sell car washes or care products directly at the car wash. Here, too, the POS runs in the browser and can be operated on any device. In addition, the receipt printer and the card terminal are also available for mobile use. With SIQMA Mobile POS we present the first browser-based POS for the petrol station market.
The current developments in the petrol station market with regard to new retail concepts such as self-checkout or ev-charging stations were taken into account with two case studies. SIQMA Connect enables the connection of third-party systems. The integration in SIQMA POS 2.0 enables petrol station operators to implement various concepts. At the self-checkout terminal, petrol station customers will be able to register for the brand-specific loyalty programme, scan and pay for shop articles themselves or buy car washes and bistro articles. It is also possible to pay for the fuelling. An intelligent promotion module enables more targeted control of advertising than ever before. The AI-controlled module displays advertising depending on demographic characteristics, environmental influences and empirical values from past sales. The hardware is provided in exclusive cooperation with Pyramid Computer GmbH. The German family business Pyramid is leading in the market for self-checkout solutions. The devices are used by well-known brands such as McDonald's and Vapiano. When it comes to electric charging stations, POS integration offers further advantages. In contrast to the well-known onstreet charging points, customers can be offered various payment options and cross promotions (e.g. for users of the e-charging point there is discounted coffee). At the exhibition we presented the first available "Ultra Fast Charger" on the market, which with 350kW enables a range of 100 km within about 5 minutes.
In addition to all these innovations, we of course also showed our proven outdoor payment solutions SIQMA CRID, SIQMA OPT and SIQMA Fuel & Go.
