ALVARA | Digital Solutions and Kassen Merkl develop an inclusive checkout display for the visually impaired
Leipzig, 30/03/2022. ALVARA | Digital Solutions actively promotes an inclusive working environment. Together with Kassen Merkl GmbH, Europe’s leading provider of software solutions for cash logistics and POS has now developed a POS display that can also be operated perfectly by people with impaired vision without the need for complex configurations. The “ITR POS solution” offers employees with special needs a clearly designed checkout interface with the most important functions for bakeries such as:
- quick product finder
- simple product maintenance
- assignment of discounts and offers
for a clear payment process.
In accordance with the needs of the visually impaired, ALVARA | Digital Solutions and Kassen Merkl designed the interface as well as the keys to be large, clearly structured and to have a very high-contrast in primary and complementary colors. The design of the checkout display can be customized.
“For the best possible implementation, we were in close exchange with a workshop for the disabled, which supported us in defining the requirements. Thus, with the adjustments, we succeeded in optimally designing the checkout display for the needs of a wide range of visually impaired people,” explains ALVARA | Digital Solutions Managing Director Steven Schwarznau. The checkout process can thus be handled quickly, easily and efficiently. The clear, optimized and intuitive interface of the tailor-made checkout solution saves employees time and reduces the lines at the counter. “People with disabilities thus have the same opportunities in the job market. We are pleased to be able to make a contribution to equal rights for all employees with this solution. This marks an important step towards a more inclusive working world,” concludes Steven Schwarznau.
