Posiflex targets retail market with dedicated hybrid solution
Launch of new mobile POS terminal underlines focus on Europe for growth
Posiflex has announced its intention to expand its market share in Europe, with the launch of a revolutionary mobile POS, the MT-4008W. The new solution provides retailers and hospitality companies with the mobility of a tablet combined with the versatility of a traditional POS in one hybrid system.
The MT-4008W will be the star of the show for Posiflex at the forthcoming EuroCIS retail event in Dusseldorf, Germany, and will be amongst several new POS solutions to be demonstrated on the Posiflex booth (Hall 9/E22). This launch coincides with the company’s intention to increase its focus on the European markets, with the objective of replicating its success internationally where it is ranked fifth in the global ePOS sector.1
Redefine the Mobile POS Experience – Hybrid Solution
The MT-4008W is an 8” mobile tablet supports an MSR attachment and can be integrated with the choice of a detachable pistol grip or a hand strap depending on the application. Moreover, when the tablet docks at the station, an all-in-one POS is instantly at the disposal of store staff. The concept of hybrid POS is a perfect fit for both retail and hospitality, offering upward mobility as well as the advantages of a fixed POS system that delivers greater efficiency and speed.
“The MT-4008W creates a brand new experience for mobile retailing and hospitality applications,” said Owen Chen, President and CEO of Posiflex Technology, Inc. “We believe that we have developed a unique solution that brings all the benefits of fixed and mobile POS together in a hybrid device delivering the highest quality performance in whichever way the retailer and hospitality players choose to use it.”
Powered by an Intel processor, this mobile tablet runs Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry with a 1024 x768 screen resolution; therefore most Windows-based applications can be ported over with minimal to no modification. Sleek yet robust, the resistance to drop of the MT-4008W is from pocket height up to 3.5 ft. The detachable pistol grip is a truly ingenious invention. It not only allows for optional a 1D or 2D barcode scanner built-in, but also houses a swappable battery that effectively extends the operational life of the tablet. And most importantly, its ergonomic design and precise weight balance enable the store staff to easily carry and handle the tablet for an eight-hour shift.
Another highlight of MT-4008W is its charging dock station, which has a 3” WIFI thermal POS receipt printer built-in, and connectivity options to a wide range of peripherals. The integration of tablet and dock station allows the device to have the features and functionality of an all-in-one POS.
At EuroCIS (24-26 February), Posiflex will also be presenting its full POS portfolio:
- HS Series – Award-winning all-in-one POS
- XT Series – Fan-free POS Terminal
- TX Series – Fan-free POS Box
- Android POS
- AURA-6906W – Web-based POS Printer
New Android Mobile POS launching soon
A new Android version of the Mobile POS MT Series will be introduced in the spring. The MT4008A is designed to meet a broad range of business applications running on the popular Android operating system.
