At the Vaper Expo 2016 (6 – 8 May, NEC, Birmingham), leading cloud-based retail management software company Vend will demonstrate a complete mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) solution that incorporates its unique software with Star Micronics’ combined Bluetooth printer and cash drawer solution mPOP™. The system will run on a beautifully designed mPOS stand by Ergonomic Solutions. Vend will be exhibiting with their Expert Partners and Apple Premium Resellers KRCS and Albion.
Built for iOS and iPad, Vend enables retailers to accept payments from anywhere, sell in-store and online, manage their inventory, reward customer loyalty, and report on their business in real-time. The company works with 15,000 forward-thinking retailers around the world, from owner-operated businesses to large multi-outlets.
Vend has integrated Star’s combined Bluetooth printer and cash drawer solution mPOP that is lightweight and portable at 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. A versatile solution, mPOP is ideal for a range of retail environments from department stores to boutique and seasonal pop-up shops.
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.
Annette Tarlton, Marketing Director, Star Micronics EMEA, states: “We are delighted to be working with Vend and Ergonomic Solutions to provide the retail sector with a stylish and compact mPOS solution that incorporates powerful cloud-based retail management software. Visitors to Vaper Expo 2016 will be able to experience live demonstrations of this unique solution with Expert Partners KRCS and Albion providing end to end knowledge and support for retailers.”
