HP Launches Mobile Point-of-Sale Solution
HP has launched a new mobile point-of-sale device to help the retail and hospitality businesses enhance the customer experience and maximize staff productivity.
Called the HP ElitePad Mobile POS Solution, it’s composed of the HP ElitePad plus the HP Retail Jacket for ElitePad, and allows businesses to meet customer needs anywhere in the store with mobile POS and assisted selling capabilities. The new mobile solution integrates into a retailer’s existing IT infrastructure so it can easily connect to store systems.
“Consumers expect the same personalized experience they get online or on their mobile device in a retailer’s brick-and-mortar store,” said Ray Carlin, VP and GM, retail solutions, HP. “With the HP ElitePad Mobile POS Solution, store managers and associates are empowered to move the sale from behind the counter, giving them the ability to assist the customer right on the sales floor for immediate customer satisfaction.”
Built-in functionality of HP ElitePad Mobile POS Solution includes:
- 1D/2D barcode scanner and three-track encrypted bi-directional magnetic stripe reader (MSR) for a fully integrated design with built-in POS functionality. Companies can more easily engage customers on the sales floor with mobile sales tools designed to inform and sell.
- Integrated detachable hand strap provides enhanced stability and usability. The hand strap comes standard with every unit to steady the mobile POS so employees can focus on sales without worrying about grip fatigue.
- The optional secondary battery enables the mobile solution to operate for extended hours to increase productivity and help make the most of every sales opportunity.
