Our CTO, Wayne Haubner, was a guest on the Postal Hub Podcast this week discussing the future of Posts, the post office, and technology.
In Wayne and Ian's discussion they discuss:
Keeping POS technology simple while offering a greater range of over-the-counter transactions
The user experience and what that means for training costs and error rates
Integration between retail systems and other internal systems
Communicating between different POS platforms - including mobile POS - in real time
Advantages of in-store mobile POS
Pop-up retail stores (including parcel collection)
Cashierless stores, such as Amazon Go - could they work in the postal world?
Customer loyalty programmes and the in-store customer experience
How technology can help in finding new revenue streams
Automation and self-service in post offices
Real time data enabling customised delivery (interactive delivery management)
Integrity of data in cross-border shipping (including blockchain)
Look out for more of Escher's leadership team featuring on the Postal Hub Podcast in the near future.
