The retail industry is undergoing a significant transformation. As we step into a post-pandemic era, the advent of self-service retail and anytime anywhere payments is revolutionizing how consumers shop and pay for their purchases. In the latest episode of our podcast, we had the pleasure of hosting Elyssa Steiner, the CMO of Cantaloupe, to discuss these dynamic shifts in retail.
We also discussed the expansion of self-service retail solutions across various verticals. Airports, gas stations, gym memberships, and residential buildings are just a few areas where these solutions are becoming increasingly common. The rise of cashless food and beverage vending machines across these sectors is reshaping how businesses deliver services and products.
The future of retail is set to be even more digitized and personalized. Elyssa predicts that AI technology, smart coolers, and other advancements will continue to drive the growth of self-service retail.
