At the upcoming RetailNOW 2013 show in Las Vegas, touchscreen terminal producer Posiflex will be announcing new retail and hospitality slim-profile and compact products in development including a digital signage controller, according to a company announcement.
The company's new all-in-one POS terminal takes up no more room than a standard receipt printer, for deployment where space is at a premium, the company said, and the ultra-small-footprint multipurpose PC with Wi-Fi can serve as a POS, digital signage or kiosk controller. The company also will unveil a new generation of ergonomically designed terminals with a foldable base that collapses to save shipping costs.The Posiflex HS Series is the all-in-one solution, with a footprint of a standard receipt printer; the 10-inch POS touchscreen terminal includes a 3-inch printer, which can be configured to include an MSR, smart card reader, fingerprint sensor and a range of secondary customer displays.
The Posiflex XT line comes with a choice of two foldable bases: a sleek and curvy slim base and a larger one, which integrates a battery backup, 12- or 24-volt powered USB and a pull-out hard drive. The intelligent foldable base for its touchscreen terminals is designed for optimized viewing to ease user fatigue and folds flat, reducing 40 percent of its size to reduce shipping costs.
The Posiflex TX multipurpose controller is an ultra-small-footprint industrial PC with Wi-Fi that can control a variety of configurations for retail and hospitality environments, the company said. The fanless and ventless controller can be mounted under the counter or on the wall to drive digital signage, kitchen control configurations, surveillance systems, point-of-purchase displays, point-of-sale and service, vending or kiosk applications.
Posiflex Vice President of Sales Doyle Ledford said his company "is providing a window into our future development plans to garner North American feedback of our innovative touchscreen terminal solutions from our customers, channel and technology partners" at this year's RetailNOW conference. "By listening to the marketplace prior to the product's full release we can assure our customer and channel needs are addressed to provide the right products at the right time," he said.
