ECRS' QUICKcheck kiosk is an affordable, compact self-checkout option for retailers of all types and sizes. The QC kiosk's approachable price point and compact frame allows both small and large retailers to enjoy the benefits of self-checkout technology once only experienced by the largest big-box enterprises.

Users will enjoy all of the functionality and security found in full-size self-checkout units now available in a compact design able to fit in most any space. The QC kiosk features complete weight security, user-friendly infrared touchscreen, ATM-cash back, ultra capacity receipt printer with receipt pull-back and auto dispose, and integrated signature capture. Stores also have the option to choose from a wide selection of available colors and customizable designs, allowing the unit to fit the look and feel of unique retail spaces.

Consumers today increasingly expect the convenience of self-checkout technology. This low-cost, practical kiosk allows every retailer to provide this service to their customers. It can also free employee time allowing for increased floor selling and renewed focus on other vital store tasks. It is a perfect solution for handling peak traffic hours, on-the-go purchases, and customer check-outs in specialized store departments such as deli or health and beauty. The QUICKcheck kiosk can be used in multiples with a monitoring attendant workstation or as stand-alone robots.

"ECRS continually strives to provide all retailers with industry-leading technology to improve their bottom-line results," said ECRS President and CEO Peter Catoe. "People are used to seeing large self-checkout stations in big-box chain stores; the ECRS QUICKcheck kiosk is the solution for the thousands of retailers who do not necessarily fit into that mold. This is truly the self-checkout solution for every retailer."
