Toshiba brings a long history of technological advancements and insights into the retail environment. It’s here that the inventors of the barcode perfected the technology behind the Universal Product Code still used for scanning product labels in supermarkets and stores globally. The back stripe, which is that little thin stripe on the back of your credit cards and debit cards was also invented here. Collectively, the group of master inventors at Toshiba has hundreds of patent filings on record with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the pieces and parts that help keep Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions ahead of the competition in the retail market.
Rich Retail Legacy
Ready for What’s Next
Today, the retail industry is at an absolute crossroads, like perhaps it's never been before in terms of the whole transformation of the customer experience, the ways that customers can touch the retailers in terms of the different channels by which they can shop. Shoppers create new demands on retailers to keep up with their expectations. Disruptive technologies create new ways to engage and motivate consumers to action.
The retail environment is constantly changing. Consumers want to find frictionless journeys. They want to go inside and walk out of the store as soon as possible. Inside the store, if they have a product that's catered just to them, promotions that are catered just to them—and that's relevant, that's transformation.
