At RBTE 2016 (9-10 March, Olympia, London), Star Micronics (Stand 310) announces that it will be showcasing a new mPOS stand designed by Ergonomic Solutions. This will also be displayed by Ergonomic Solutions on Stand 518. A leading supplier of innovative and ergonomically designed technology mounting and mobility solutions Ergonomic Solutions’ latest product range, the C-Frame series of enclosures, now features a tablet mount and plate for Star’s mPOP™. The combined Bluetooth printer and cash drawer solution alongside SpacePole’s tablet mount and plate creates an effective, compact and stylish mPOS solution for retail.
C-Frame is an innovative, universal tablet enclosure with the ultimate in designer looks. With a cleverly designed inner sleeve, it can accommodate most 10” tablets. With its choice of cool colours, mounting options and cash drawer wrappers, C-Frame can really personalise the customer experience and take mPOS and stand-alone applications to a new level of sophistication.
The C-Frame high mount version comes with a rotation element as standard that eliminates the need for a customer display. For use on either a counter top or when mounted to a cash drawer, this brings the maximum flexibility and visibility to the operator and customer, meaning that the system can go from a more traditional point of sale application to assisted sale or product look up operation, in an instant.
Mark Crysell, Product Marketing Director, Ergonomic Solutions stated: “Working with Star brings the opportunity for us to combine our C-Frame tablet enclosure with mPOP to deliver a best of breed combination that meets the growing demand for elegant but sophisticated tablet based point of sale solutions.”
Simple and stylish, mPOP is a lightweight and portable solution that is just 10cm high and 30cm wide with a sleek design that will complement any counter top. Alternatively, mPOP with front feed receipting can easily be secured under the counter for enhanced space-saving. With intuitive top loading as well as a partial cut guillotine, the reliable thermal printer automatically cuts the 58mm wide receipt. mPOP can be purchased with a plug and play scanner or this can be added as a later option.
Traditionally targeted at the micro merchant, Star has extended the appeal of mPOP to retailers of all sizes thanks to its Windows SDK. A versatile solution, mPOP is ideal for a range of environments from seasonal pop up shops to bars and cafés.
Annette Tarlton, Marketing Director, Star Micronics EMEA, states: “We are delighted to be working with Ergonomic Solutions. The C-Frame is the ideal tablet mount and plate for use with mPOP to create a stylish, compact and personalised mPOS solution for retail.”
