PaymentEye was at the Retail Business Technology Expo last week at Earls Court London. There was a great choice of innovative solutions on display within a number of sectors ranging from eCommerce to cards and payments. One of the most popular of topics discussions was Point-of-Sale (POS) solutions in the retail market.
We got the chance to catch up with Panasonic’s Corporate Sales Manager, Chris Turner and European Integration & Support Manager, Ali Rankine. It’s the company’s first year at the expo and the pair discussed Panasonic’s new range of ToughBook products and POS systems. The POS system solution has been positively received and is aimed at the quick service restaurants market. There has also been much interest in the mobile POS side which was certainly one of the major trends of the expo.
