Wincor launch mobile point-of-sale
Wincor Nixdorf is launching the BEETLE mobile POS solution. The tablet, designed specifically for the retail environment, runs on both Windows 8 and Android platforms and can be used as mobile payment as well as a fully functioning fixed POS device. The BEETLE mobile POS solution offers the flexibility and scalability to be used either as a queue buster, taking mobile payments or offering customer information on the shop floor, or linked to back-office systems to carry out admin tasks such as stock taking or inventory ordering. It communicates through a store’s Wi-fi network, with the POS device hub and all connected traditional POS peripheral devices. The POS device has integrated card acceptance technology that support both magnetic strip and chip and pin transactions. Patrick Leonard, VP of Retail North America, said “The BEETLE mobile POS tablet offers retailers the chance to deliver a truly omni-channel experience, with the ability to place orders online, take payments and provide customer information using the latest high performance mobile technology, purpose-built for the retail environment.” He adds: “Existing solutions on the market are by and large targeted at smaller independent retailers. Our solution has been designed with the larger retailer in mind, using our global expertise in the multinational retail sector to deliver a high quality, high performance solution with built-in investment protection and an open platform for third party software integration.”
