New electronic shopping cart for businesses and consumers

The recent market correction has put more pressure on e-commerce sites to be even more profitable. It is vital for retailers to implement the correct technology to help adapt to the changing retail environment. The DS Smart Cart is a portable check out station that allows users to scan and weigh items as they shop, calculating total costs, and optimising their shopping experience.

DS_SmartCart_01.jpg DS Smart Carts use a variety of features to make shopping simpler and more efficient. Aside from being a portable check-out station with included scanners and scales, it also is equipped with monitors that can connect to the store’s inventory as well. Retailers can search stock availability, the location, and view sales as well as advertised specials on the cart’s monitor.

The DS Smart Cart also has an interface that accepts multiple payment options, eliminating checkout lines for the customer and any further complications for the retailer. On screen, retailers have the ability to display and advertise coupons, specials and sales directly to customers whilst they shop.

Technology is revolutionising the way the world shops and how businesses operate. Consumers can now save time while they shop and retailers can see increased profits and watch their business grow.
