How retailers (groceries) manage social distancing

In the current crisis generated by the state of health emergency, retailers have to cope with the current demand for food by keeping stocks on the shelf and limiting both the number of people entering stores and their interaction with employees.

Recently, stricter protection measures have been taken to limit as much as possible any contact between people from wearing masks and gloves to glass partitions at cash registers, but there is still an interaction with customers by handling their personal items, such as: discount coupons, vouchers, cards, etc.

To limit employee interaction with customers, Total Technologies provides remote scanning equipment for customers' personal items (coupons, discount codes, vouchers, etc.), so the customer holds their personal item in their hand and the cashier scans it from distance with the help of barcode readers: Xenon XP 1952g / h- it is held by the employee in the hand and scans with it, and Vuquest 3320g- it is located at the cash register in a fixed point without being touched by the worker or customer.
