"Thanks to the practical pod, which makes the customer feel more involved in the shopping experience, as he/she becomes the protagonist, hi-tech shopping is managed automatically. The "evolution process" begins with the consumer" – explains Luigi Frison, marketing manager at Datalogic Mobile EBS, "the consumer shops interactively, also thanks to simple actions, such as entering the store.
In this age, where everything is near-at-hand, technological and quick, Joya moves away from traditional shopping and old promotion methods, which included yelling and handing out leaflets, and contributes to the creation of a real time direct dialog. With this new pod, a consumer receives store news and promotions in real time, keeps the shopping bill updated while scanning barcodes and bags chosen goods while shopping, preventing the need to place the goods on the conveyer at check out. When the sales assistant receives Joya from the consumer at check-out, the receipt is generated automatically, contributing to quick and conscious shopping."

This influences total sales for an average of 30%. Sales of goods promoted through the Joya display have doubled, which confirms the fact that the real time communication during the shopping experience reaches its goal immediately.

From the point of view of a concrete anti-crisis solution, keep in mind that self-shopping is associated with self-payment. "This is an affirmed retail trend" – concludes Frison, "as it assures the rationalization of store management costs (TCO) and the increase of customers loyalty. As a consequence. revenues that quickly cover the initial investment (ROI)."
Therefore, practicality and optimism are easily accessible. A smile appears on the Joya display with just one click, starting the shopping experience in a positive manner and the leading the way to overcoming the consumption crisis.
