Global supplier of touch-enabled technology Elo Touch Solutions has announced new interactive digital signage and mobile touchcomputing tablet products designed to help retailers enhance their customer experience and drive sales efficiency. Elo is leveraging the industry’s point-of-sale (POS), point-of-information (POI), and interactive digital signage (IDS) platforms. Rather than requiring the user to adapt to one type of touch, Elo’s architecture delivers flexibility which adapts to a variety of retail environments where mobility, design, and ease of deployment can all be optimized to address particular retailer requirements.
“Elo’s millions of real-life retail installations all over the world provide unique insight for our next generation of touch innovation,” said Craig Witsoe, CEO Elo Touch Solutions. “With our broad product portfolio, proven history of quality & reliability, and strong industry partnerships – Elo is professional retail, built for touch, to help redefine how you attract and retain customers.”
Running Microsoft Windows and featuring an Intel Atom processor with solid state drive, the tablet has been purpose-built to support point-of-sale software environments and the mobile POS (mPOS) initiatives being embraced by leading retailers. An integrated magnetic stripe reader, barcode scanning, removable battery and wireless printing/networking is housed in a form factor designed to withstand being dropped on a concrete floor.
