Indonesia’s SaveMax Shortens Checkout Queues With Zebra Technologies

SaveMax Cast Study Photo 2 webSingapore: Zebra Technologies Corporation has announced that SaveMax has adopted its 2D Point of Sale (POS) imagers in the retailer’s 60,000-square-foot store located in Cibubur. The 2D imagers enable the cashiers to scan even the most challenging 1D or 2D barcodes at any angle, expediting the checkout process and delivering an enhanced customer experience.

Indonesia’s retail industry is expanding by leaps and bounds, and is currently ranked as the 12th most retail-friendly economy amongst 30 emerging markets. The fast-growing population, emerging middle-class consumers, increasing employment rate, and urbanisation are key drivers propelling the country’s retail industry. The advancement and adoption of new technologies, such as connected devices, advanced Point-of-Sale (PoS) systems, mobile payment, etc., are also fueling the industry’s growth.

“SaveMax decided to utilise Zebra’s 2D scanners as we recognise that, in order to thrive in the highly competitive retail industry in Indonesia, we must approach things differently, and incorporate new technologies into our business. We have tested various brands of scanners, and Zebra impressed us with its well-rounded, extensive and seamless scanning capabilities,” said Joanito Iwan Tamsil, Director of Information System and Technology, SaveMax Super Grosir.

“Data is everywhere and will continue to grow incrementally in the enterprise environment, and 2D scanners work to capture that data effectively with little human intervention. In Indonesia, Zebra is excited to be working with retail businesses like SaveMax, to enhance and future-proof its infrastructure to meet the rising demands of the market. The local retail industry continues to grow, and we are hopeful that more local businesses will consider using 2D imagers in their stores in the future,” remarked Wayne Harper, Senior Technical Director, Zebra Technologies, Asia Pacific.
