QUORiON Launches Touch Screen Retail POS System

QUORiON plans to introduce the POS Concerto as a new POS hybrid, because it combines both touch screen and classical keyboard. Touch screen based POS systems therefore virtually eliminate entry errors, because users can select from clearly defined menus. These menus constitute a finite number of options, thereby providing the user with a step-by-step procedure to guide them to their goal. It is therefore no surprise that touch screen POS systems are so popular in restaurants and bars. POS keyboards withstand every day retail abuse, because they are constructed of durable, spill resistant materials, as opposed to the standard PC keyboard. QUORiON’s POS Concerto supplies value as a retail POS system or in hybrid point of sale applications such as coffee shops. It’s strength lies in its seamless combination of tested POS technologies – the touch screen and POS keyboard.
