Don't be just a pass time activity for travellers

From border stores, to airport shops and restaurants, to ferries and in-flight sales, travel retail is one of the fastest growing segments of retail worldwide. More and more people travel internationally every year, and while traveling they shop and dine, creating a travel economy that is worth more than $1 trillion.

The opportunities in this sector are great, both for travel retail in general and duty free stores in specific; but this is no easy business. Travel retailers need to ensure fast and accurate service, as travelers are often in a rush. Restaurants catering for travelers need to produce high-quality dishes fast and accurately.
Inventory is also particularly complex: the products have to be in-store when customers demand them – there is no “come later”, or “we’ll get it next week”.

The management of duty free stores brings even more complications. Every country has different customs regulations, tax regimes and legislation on specific products, such as alcohol and tobacco. Duty free stores need to be able to sell fast and efficiently while correctly managing varying item allowances, taxation, and security tamper-evident bags (STEB) handling, according to their customers’ nationality and travel route.

Is your current management system powerful enough to support your business growth?

Specific-duty-free-functions

Specific duty free functions

Our solution includes all the key functions a duty free store needs. Capture boarding card and passport data by scanner or manually. Based on flight information and nationality setup, the system will pick up the rules for:

  • Tax free, tax refunds, final prices and discounts
  • Product allowances and limitations, by quantity or amount
  • Security tamper-evident bags

The system also handles multi-leg boarding cards for in-transit passengers. In this case, rules can be set basing on final destination instead of next-leg destination.


Faster and better service

Gain happy and returning customers by offering fast and to-the-point service, whether you manage a store or a restaurant. Use our system to give your customers:

  • Faster speed of service
  • Product suggestions with the cross-selling tools
  • Detailed product and dishes information, as POS are connected to the item master
  • Offers and promotions
  • Payments, balance and price checks in different currencies.

You can also create different rules for different stores, setting fast keys for frequently used destinations and setting up warning triggers (for example, if a security tamper-evident bag (STEB) is needed or if a customer is exceeding their item limits) to minimize the possibility of human error.
