Elo’s New mPOS Printer Stand

Posted January 18, 2017

Elo has announced their new commercial-grade mPOS system that flips between point of sale and self-order kiosk. Elo has combined proven industry-leading peripherals – from Star Micronics, Epson, Honeywell, Verifone, & Ingenico, – with a versatile mPOS platform designed for retail, hospitality, entertainment venues, medical or any environment where interactive customer transactions are needed. The mPOS system is based on Elo’s popular and agile i-Series POS computer available in 10- or 15-inch Android or Windows commercial tablets. The innovative flip-screen stand also integrates standard 3″ self-cutting printer, 2D barcode scanner, and EMV cradle for a built-in look using standard commercially available peripherals from leading brands. The included touchscreen tablet can quickly ‘flip’ from associate-facing traditional POS to customer-facing self-service ordering. Printer and EMV may be placed in either associate-facing or customer-facing orientations depending on application. Elo’s new mPOS system is available for order today.

The new mPOS Printer Stand, 2D Barcode Scanner and EMV Payment System Cradle Mount are all designed to help improve the customer experience. By introducing these products into environments where engagement is essential, companies can create a unified approach to any customer experience in point of sale and self-service including applications for endless aisle, price verification, loyalty programs, brand experience, fitting rooms, patient check-in, time clock applications and more.

The new mPOS Printer Stand is an innovative flip stand that quickly and easily switches the mPOS terminal between an employee facing cash register to a customer facing display for payment and signature capture or to a complete self-service kiosk. The space-saving mPOS Printer Stand is designed to house an I-Series Android-based mPOS terminal (10″ or 15″), a POS expansion module and a standard 3″ printer in a clean cable free installation. Elo’s mPOS Printer Stand was built to house many 3″ printers including Star Micronics TSP100 and the Epson T88.

Which Mobile Operating System is Best for You?

Posted February 29, 2016

Selecting the best rugged mobile solution to support enterprise workflows and applications is anything but simple given the multitude of options available to organizations. With a myriad of choices available comes a certain degree of flexibility and opportunity to leverage corporate strengths while focusing on areas that need improvement/greater efficiency or to further differentiate. Along with the flexibility these options provide, comes the arduous task of evaluating mobility choices and properties associated with them: form factor, operating system, functionality, features, connectivity, security and a line of business (LOB) software solution to guide employees through productive execution of daily tasks.

Organizations have clear, hard requirements of enterprise LOB mobility solutions: 3-5 year product life cycle, security, reliability, support, and a full complement of accessories. All organizations are keenly aware of what downtime means in terms of productivity and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) associated with LOB solutions.

This whitepaper will explore one critical piece of the enterprise mobility selection challenge: Operating Systems with implied development options for enterprise mobility devices.

Introduction

Ruggedized mobile computers have been driving mobility in the workplace for decades. The evolution of platforms embracing new and maturing technologies are creating new markets and opportunities for enhancing user experience, creating efficiencies and improving productivity in the workplace. One of the key factors for the success of mobility in the enterprise has been Microsoft’s embedded platforms providing security, stability and reliability. This whitepaper covers current Microsoft platforms as well as the paradigm shift we are experiencing with Android’s popularity. It will also discuss Datalogic’s mission to actively invest and research the best options and platforms to enhance and guarantee enterprise customers’ mobility success and profitability.

By Microsoft definition, Windows Embedded platforms target specialized devices such as ruggedized mobile computers, ATMs, Kiosks and others. Windows Embedded CE kernel had been at the heart of Windows Embedded CE and Windows Embedded Handheld (Windows Mobile), both targeting specialized rugged handheld devices that are mission critical for line of business (LOB) applications. Windows, on the other hand, focuses on general purpose computing such as PCs, laptops and tablets and targets both enterprise and consumer environments.

Socket Releases Updated SDK With Support For Apple iOS 9

Posted September 23, 2015

Socket has released the latest version of their industry leading Cordless Hand Scanner Software Developer Kit (SDK), SocketScan version 10.2. The latest version is compatible with Apple’s iOS 9 operating system, Google’s Android M (Marshmallow) and Microsoft Windows 10 and includes many new features, benefits and improvements including faster Bluetooth reconnect times.

The SDK is used by Socket Mobile’s thriving developer community of over 1,400 developers to incorporate the use of Socket Mobile barcode scanners into their applications. This latest release continues Socket Mobile’s commitment to its developer community to stay compatible with operating system changes as they occur.

Along with support for iOS 9, the SocketScan 10.2 library is compiled with Apple’s new Bitcode feature. By using Bitcode, the application delivers optimized performance for the end user’s Apple product automatically — when it is downloaded from the App Store.

Packaging tools have also been updated:

  • For iOS developers SocketScan 10.2 is now packaged for the CocoaPods dependency manager for Swift and Objective-C Cocoa projects. The NuGet packaging tool which is also supported provides similar productivity benefits for the Windows platform.
  • Support for Android’s Maven package manager will come in a future release.

CocoaPods and NuGet make the initial SDK download and updates seamless so our developers can spend less time managing their projects and focus their creative energies on building scalable solutions.

In addition, this SDK release includes a set of bindings that enable developers using Xamarin to target iOS devices to utilize the Socket Mobile SocketScan SDK.
