How do you design a cash register
system that works fast but can be under-
stood and operated easily?
The system is based on a cinema located
in Schwaebisch Gmuend. The selection
meets the real requirements.
In a preliminary talk with the cinema
operator, we received the information
that the staff changes frequently.
For that reason, training must be simple.
A freely operable system, with partly
guided procedures, was our solution.
If you are within the three main applica-
tions, you can always change flexibly to
add or correct something. You can also
find important controls for all three
categories in each screen.
In less common use cases, such as issuing
a voucher, accesses are managed by
a guided system. This reduces the error
rate for untrained staff.
The various menu items allow fast
The range of products, sold by the

About the split button, you can select
individual items and pay separately

split amount is displayed in yellow.
We opted for a dark UI to spare the eyes
of the employees in the dimly lit lobby.
Furthermore, we often rely on an icon
font combination to ensure and support
Throughout the course of the project, I mainly occupied
myself with the construction, the structure related
to the UI, the click paths and the route guidance.
