HP today announced the HP ElitePad Mobile Point of Sale (POS) Solution, a POS device that helps retail and hospitality businesses. With the rise of sophisticated e commerce and mobile technologies, today’s tech-savvy consumers expect instant, customised access to a brand’s offerings. However, delivering this type of personalised experience can be challenging for brick-and-mortar businesses. To address this, 57 percent of retailers plan to implement tablets in their store in the next 12-36 months, citing consumer engagement as the top priority.(1)
The HP ElitePad Mobile POS Solution, which is composed of the HP ElitePad plus the HP Retail Jacket for ElitePad, 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, saving time and money by allowing them to easily connect to store systems.
