HP Launches Tablet Point-of-sale for Small Biz

HP has launched a Windows 8.1 tablet-based point-of-sale (POS) solution it developed to allow small business retailers to effectively manage their business and cut operating costs.

According to HP, the HP TX1 POS, which will be available in May, is an affordable solution that allows small businesses to easily complete sales transactions and perform back-office tasks, and has the ability to run essential POS applications and popular productivity applications.

“Small businesses need simple, affordable solutions that help them efficiently drive their business forward,” said Ray Carlin, VP and GM of retail solutions for HP, which unveiled the new system at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona yesterday. “Our tablet-based point-of-sale solution gives today’s retailers the essential tools they need to gain a competitive edge.”

For Small Business

Designed for small businesses—including retail and hospitality—the HP TX1 combines a 10.1-inch HP ProPad 600 with a sturdy stand and POS accessories in one solution. The stand was designed to securely hold the tablet upright and also allow it to turn and tilt to capture a customer's signature. The unit can easily detach from the stand so employees can take it home at the end of the day when needed.

The HP ProPad 600 features the latest lntel Atom Quad-Core Processor, a long battery life, Windows 8.1 and up to 64GB of storage. The HP TX1 includes a compact receipt printer, an affordable cash drawer, USB hub and an optional barcode scanner to give business owners complete POS functionality.
