HP Rolls Out New Point Of Sale Systems

Computing solutions provider Hewlett-Packard has released a bunch of new retail solutions that are targeted towards enhancing customers’ retail experience via customer satisfaction and retention.

The company released the new rp5800 Retail System point-of-sale system that allows for lesser cash processing time, thereby making retail transactions easier than before.

The POS system comes with Intel’s second generation Intel Core processors and the Intel vPro technology.

HP said that POS systems will come with support for multiple operating systems including Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, Microsoft Windows POSReady 2009 and Microsoft Windows XP operating systems.

Meanwhile, the HP Self-Service Kiosks that comes with Virtual Sales Assistant software will offer retailers a chance to engage their customers by allowing them to access an interactive, easy-to-use platform that lets them view important information and access services.

The kiosks will come with a 23 or 42-inch diagonal display with support for high definition.

“Retailers know that consumers want the shopping environment to be as interesting as online experiences,” said Ray Carlin, vice president, Retail Solutions Global Business Unit, HP, said in a statement.

“Savvy retailers are upgrading their in-store technology – especially at the point of sale – to seamlessly integrate with other channels and enable their customers to shop the way they want to, creating a better in-store experience.”
