EPOS Distributor, the York based Specialist Retail IT distributor, has become a UK Distributor for Casio and will be distributing the newly released VX-100 Android based EPoS system and the range of handheld data capture terminals to further expand its product offering to EPoS resellers.
The VX-100 is the first EPOS system running the Android platform for both EPoS Distributor and Casio therefore striking an exciting new product development for the companies and aims to close a gap in the Android market for its resellers. This compact EPOS terminal is equipped with a 10.4 inch colour main display with full-touch screen operation and splash proof panel, a sub-display that is great for showing information to customers, and a built-in thermal printer to generate receipts. An optional cash drawer can also be added so the terminal can be used as a cash register. This EPOS system provides resellers with a terminal that has a low cost of entry, no costly licensing fees and all development tools are free of charge. The VX-100 is designed for use in a wide selection of retail environments including independent retail stores, multi-nationals, restaurants, and works as both a standalone system or as part of a networked system. No interface cables are required and the EPOS system is simply unpacked, powered-up and ready to use.
Mike Pullon, EPOS Distributor CEO commented "We are excited to be able to offer UK Retail System suppliers Casio's VX-100 Android integrated EPoS terminal alongside their range of data capture terminals. We look forward to working with our customers in getting their Android EPoS software ported onto the Casio terminal and then in assisting in building end user awareness of their complete solutions".
Guy Boxall, Casio Senior Product Marketing Manager commented "Android is the future platform for the retail sector, allowing a more open approach with regard to application development and giving more control to the independent retailer. An exciting time for both Casio and EPoS Distributor as we launch the Casio VX-100 EPOS terminal, together with additional new product launches in the months ahead".
EPoS Distributor will also be distributing Casio handheld terminals including the DT series of rugged mobile devices including the DT-X7, DT-X8 and DT-X30, as well as the IT-300 and IT-800. Furthermore the IT-3100 from Casio will be replaced by the IT-9000 and EPoS Distributor will have this product available when it is launched in February 2012. Aimed at retail and hospitality applications the Casio range of rugged mobile devices are the perfect solution to provide fast and efficient mobile data collection.
