Speed and ease of service
The smart gantry is operated from your EPOS till screen.
All the tobacco range price and categories you sell are stored here as part of your stock control so there is no need to search the gantry to provide a price for a customer and no need to do any additional product programming.
To dispense the right product…..
Simply press the button for the tobacco range, select the right product and instantly the right cigarette packet or RYO tobacco is dispensed and the sale rung up on the till. Nothing comes out of the smart gantry unless the EPOS system has ordered it and recorded it as a sale. It is simple and easy to operate and very easy to train new staff.
Filling the smart gantry is easy. The key holder can open the doors anytime without breaking any merchandise laws in England or Scotland. Each chute is numbered and can have bar codes or other brand identifiers in large print. Re stocking is quick and easy and all stock is rotated so there are no stale out of date packs to worry about.
Once locked the tobacco stock is safe and secure. Additional products can be locked away in the steel base drawer units if required.
We are linked with most EPOS companies outlined below
If you don't have EPOS systems we have an alternative to control the smart gantry
Your cigarettes will be protected behind steel doors and enclosed in a steel cabinet fixed to the wall. The locks are high quality grade locks and if the owner or manager is the only key holder no cigarettes or tobacco can be removed unless rung through the till so your shrinkage problems stop right there.
When confronted with this type of systems burglars cannot break in so give up trying and in the future they wont bother attempting to rob with a store fitted with smart tobacco gantry. ( download of the movie)
Traditional gantries are now far to big for the range. Our Smart Gantry systems are matched to your tobacco sales so they are only as big as they need to be and generally are much more space efficient than existing systems. The slat-board door fronts allow either new products to be merchandised, ie vape and e cigarettes, or can be used for the pharmacy and small electrical products to be moved and free up more full depth shelf space either side for extra spirits and alcohol. Generally one of our systems free up to around 1 linear metre of shelf space which is worth around £50 a week in extra profits if used for spirits*
