Wincor Nixdorf, one of the world's leading suppliers of IT solutions for the banking and retail industries, today announced the enhanced BEETLE/iPOS, a compact, "all-in-one" point-of-sale (POS) system.
With Intel Pentium 4 technology, the BEETLE/iPOS is a powerful platform for today's feature-rich, customer-centric POS applications. The BEETLE/iPOS includes an integrated power supply, customer display and TFT touch screen in a small-footprint, splash-proof design. It is ideal for hospitality, food services, and convenience/petroleum retailing, but it performs equally well as a kiosk or in traditional POS environments, especially where space is at a premium.
"Wincor Nixdorf continues to build momentum in the U.S. retail market with our hardware and software offerings, and the BEETLE/iPOS is the perfect hardware platform for applications such as Wincor's iBISTRO QSR and NAMOS Compact," said Doug Evans, vice president of retail, Wincor Nixdorf USA. "With its high performance, retail-hardened design and compact size, the BEETLE/iPOS is ideally suited to the demands of even the harshest store environment."
The new BEETLE/iPOS supports the standards found throughout the BEETLE family, allowing existing peripherals and software to be used, protecting existing store technology investments. Options such as card readers, speakers, waiter lock, and motion sensors can be easily incorporated into the base. External interfaces (serial, USB and powered USB) provide support for printers, displays, EFT terminals, keyboard, microphone and speakers. The BEETLE/iPOS supports both Windows- and Linux-based operating systems.
