In today's retail and hospitality settings, frictionless check-out is a must-have to remain competitive and ensure customer satisfaction. Epson, a supplier of industry-leading Point of Sale (POS) solutions, and Newcastle Systems, a leading provider of industrial mobile-powered carts designed to make retail floors more efficient, have partnered to deliver a new, fully mobile all-in-one line-busting POS solution.
Enabling businesses to create flexible and safe check-out locations from anywhere in the store – indoor or outdoor – the new Mobile Powered POS Station combines an Epson receipt printer and a lightweight, yet durable Newcastle POS powered cart. The Mobile Powered POS Station can use one of many Epson printers, including the OmniLink® TM-T88 series, TM-m30II-NT , OmniLink TM-m50, as well as the award-winning OmniLink TM-m30II-SL compact thermal with built-in tablet mount, and the recently released OmniLink TM-L100 liner-free compatible thermal label printer.
"I think everyone has been in a situation in which they've abandoned a purchase, or at least considered it, because the checkout line was too long. The ideal solution to quickly eliminate long lines during peak periods, this new mobile powered POS station with an Epson printer gives businesses the flexibility to add mobile POS locations whenever and wherever they are needed, and further help to facilitate a positive customer shopping experience."
Kevin Ledversis, director of sales, Newcastle Systems, Inc.
The Mobile Powered POS Station offers remote power, eliminating dangerous extension cords and costly ceiling drops. Designed specifically with high-traffic retail and hospitality markets in mind, the new solution helps ensure customer and employee safety by allowing for safe distancing, with flexible check-out locations almost anywhere indoor or outdoor, making it ideal for curbside pick-up, parking lot events or garden centers. The station can also be customized to match a business's brand.
"The pandemic has re-shaped the retail and hospitality market, creating a rapid shift in demand for quick and seamless check-out transactions, leaving businesses with a need for durable and flexible POS solutions that better meet their customers' needs," said Frank Anzures, product manager, Business Systems, Epson America, Inc. "Epson receipt printers are designed to save much needed space and users can choose a model to be configured for tabletop or kiosk self-service use. Leveraging the printer with a Newcastle POS powered cart, retail and hospitality businesses are provided with a fully mobile line-busting solution their busy environments demand."
The Newcastle POS powered cart is equipped with an integrated power system designed to hold and power up to four devices for at least eight hours of normal use. When power is running low, businesses can swap out a battery for continuous AC Power.
Newcastle Systems has previously integrated Epson ColorWorks® on-demand color label printers into its mobile-powered workstations to create ideal solutions for on-demand finished goods labeling, as well as Epson WorkForce® Pro WF-M5299 monochrome inkjet printers for battery-powered mobile workstations for round-the-clock warehouse shifts.
