Dubai: Standing in long queues can be frustrating for consumers. Centrepoint, a multibrand store, aims to change that.

In the coming months, the retailer, owned by Dubai-based Landmark Group, plans to pilot a new payment system that is expected to cut down queues. Customers will be able to pay for a product wherever they are in the store using an mPOS (mobile point of sale) device, which acts like a cash register.

“The last thing a customer wants is to wait for a long time to pay for a product,” Simon Cooper, head of Centrepoint, told Gulf News in an interview on Thursday.

Besides leveraging technology to enhance customers’ shopping experience, Centrepoint plans to expand its presence in the Gulf region, where it currently has 132 stores. More info
