The new payment stations are based on the self-payment terminals skeye.quickpay.
The devices were specially adapted to the needs of METRO Cash & Carry and extended with additional functions.
The constant availability of self-payment terminals is a top priority for METRO Cash & Carry.
The service concept for the terminals is well thought out. If a device fails, the entire hardware is simply replaced. The terminal housing can be opened in two simple steps, the computer unit and all hardware can be replaced. “After replacement and connection to the mains, the device goes into operation independently,” explains Jan-Christian Engelbrecht. “It automatically fetches the current software version from a central server of the wholesale market and is ready for use within two minutes at the latest. Software conflicts are excluded from the outset. The handling is very simple and therefore to be carried out without specialist knowledge of employees of the wholesale markets.”
