Staffing Stress: Solving Labor Shortages and Modernizing C-stores with Self-Checkout

About This Webinar

To address the demands of the modern consumer and the issues presented by the current U.S. labor shortage, more and more convenience store operators are turning to self-checkout systems. With over 300% growth in the number of c-stores offering self-checkout in 2021, the transformation of the modern convenience store has only just begun. Join one of the pioneers of the “cashierless c-store" concept, along with Gilbarco’s POS experts, to learn how self-service technology can be a quick and cost-efficient solution to your day-to-day operation needs.

Maplefields’ IT Director, Skip Potter, and Gilbarco’s Express Lane Self-checkout Marketing Manager, Julia Collins, will discuss consumers’ evolving expectations in the c-store setting and the radical transformation of Maplefields’ in-store experience that now revolves around the self-checkout experience. Discussions on these topics will be followed by a thorough Q&A moderated by CSP’s very own Jackson Lewis.
