After a Preview at EuroCIS (Germany) in February, the Aures Group will introduce Sango - its new integrated EPOS terminal - during Retail Business Technology Expo in London (12 - 13 March 2013 - Earl's Court - London – Stand 580).
Designed and developed entirely by EPOS manufacturer Aures, Sango - which means coral branch in Japanese – is a completely new concept - original and innovative – of all-in-one till management systems; one of its many features is to completely free-up the space under the touch screen.
"Our latest EPOS combines purity in design and lightness, while remaining impressively robust," said Patrick Cathala, Aures Group CEO and founder. "The gamble of creating an integrated system where the screen would be suspended, as if weightless, was made possible by using high quality materials, cast aluminium and polycarbonate. The final impression is one of a beautiful and contemporary terminal, totally in line with current design; the free space available under the screen is also a response to a number of our customers, who require more room on the checkout desk ...".
- Reduced to a few essential design elements, the clean open lines of the Sango are emblematic of a complete and efficient EPOS (flat, fully-tilting, multi-touch LED-technology touch screen with edgeless, capacitive projected technology).
- With no intrusive base, stand or foot, unlike other EPOS systems on the market, Sango soars effortlessly, as if weightless, offering and revealing a space traditionally occupied by the central unit and motherboard; elegantly attached and suspended from its offset aluminium arm, the system's real exo-skeleton and support for its technological core (CPU), Sango combines minimalist aesthetics and ease-of-use (a dedicated till drawer can be housed under the screen) – as well as lower power consumption.
Stable and rigid, its thin metal base (a natural extension of the slender and beautifully-designed arm) acts as a heat sink.
This new EPOS will adapt to the technology requirements of all users: 3 types of processors are available, to suit their needs, as well as a range of connection options. The flat LED touch monitor, with an edgeless display surface, is offered in resistive and/or multi-touch projected capacitive versions.
It's glossy polycarbonate finish, featuring a mix & match range of seven modular colours (White, Black, Red, Blue, Orange, Grey and Cassis) takes Aures' colour revolution, launched in 2005 with the Odyssé, to new heights – adding the finishing touch to retailers' visual identity, right the way through to the till point.
"Sango once again demonstrates that our Group is the most creative manufacturer in the market" added Patrick Cathala. "The leadership shown by Aures in innovation by design has also been recognised by the juries of the prestigious IF Product Design Awards 2013 and TOP Produkt Handel in Germany: Sango is already a prize-winner in these prestigious European awards, even before it reaches the market, at the beginning of quarter two in 2013".
