NRF 2019 News: Elo Showcases Unified Architecture Platform for Restaurants
Elo, a global supplier of retail technology solutions, announced exciting additions to its broad family of POS and self-service solutions. Elo reduces technology complexity while increasing application potential with a common architecture across a broad range of Android™ or Windows® devices with a fully modular and configurable design.
Elo’s configurability and unified architecture enables retailers to deliver engaging in-store experiences
Elo provides retailers with the tools needed to create in-store experiences that engage customers and drive sales. POS, self-service, and signage solutions can easily be crafted by leveraging Elo touchscreens from 10- to 70-inches and configured with Elo Edge Connect™ peripheral devices and sleek stands and mounts. Whether Android, Windows or Linux, Elo solutions are built on a unified architecture platform that puts an end to disparate in-store store systems. For Android devices, EloView® device management software securely connects and controls large or small networks at minimal cost.
Software deployment and hardware maintenance are greatly simplified, eliminating the need to have seperate support concepts for POS terminals, kiosks, price checkers, endless aisle solutions and interactive signage.
It all adds up to an unprecedented combination of customer experience creativity, touch point configuration freedom, mix-and-match system diversity and homogeneous environment manageability.
“The Elo platform makes creating and implementing any in-store touchscreen application much easier and less expensive than ever before,” said Craig Witsoe, CEO, Elo. “Retailers and restaurants are growing sales and reducing costs with touchscreen applications, but they need less store tech complexity. With unified architecture across multiple applications, everything gets easier.”
Within the full Elo platform, notable new offerings include the the versatile EloPOSTM system, stylish Elo PayPoint® Plus for Windows system, and the compact 1302L touchscreen monitor:
- EloPOS™ System for Windows: This versatile system combines modern aesthetics, modular flexibility, and commercial-grade durability. It boasts a 15.6-inch touchscreen, Intel’s 8th-generation processors, and an integrated expansion hub to connect customer-facing displays, payment readers, printers, cash drawers, barcode scanners, and scales. From traditional POS to self-service applications, and backed by Elo’s standard 3-year warranty, the EloPOS™ system delivers the reliability needed for today’s commercial use.
- Elo PayPoint Plus for Windows: This stylish and functional POS system delivers the power of Intel® CoreTM i5 processor. It includes a fully integrated barcode scanner, three-inch printer, encrypted MSR, full-sized cash drawer and connections for third-party peripherals. A flip-for-signature 15.6-inch touchscreen encourages shopper engagement, making the system ideal for retail stores and QSRs.
- 1302L: Elo’s latest 13-inch touchscreen monitor features the same seamless style of the 02-Series and is the first Elo monitor to utilize USB-C. With a compact form factor and clean design for easy integration, the 1302L offers the flexibility to install as a traditional stand-alone touch monitor or a customer-facing one, making it well-suited for point-of-sale, self-service, signage, and hospitality applications.
