We are witnessing a rapid change in societal norms, from how we conduct business all the way down to our personal interactions. Offices, schools and non-essential businesses began closing to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. People around the world were ordered to stay home; life could have stopped completely, yet it didn’t It just changed, thanks to technology. Pre virus, many of us were happy to frequent a supermarket, chatting to the person at the checkout lane, never thinking twice about touching the keypad to checkout at the point of sale. Yet here we are roughly 6 months later, people are now significantly more cautious, limiting interaction with others in retail settings due to social distancing rules. Rather than face-to-face contact, people are now opting to pay or access stores using self-service retail technologies.
