Panasonic Optimizes POS with New Workstation, Stingray Envo


Panasonic System Networks Company of America introduces its new POS workstation, the Stingray Envo. Envo is anticipated to save users both time and money with a modular design that enables self-service. Envo also uses eco-responsible manufacturing practices.

Built with a VESA mount, Envo can have a traditional upright configuration, or can be mounted in a low profile form. No additional equipment is required under the counter. The versatility of Envo’s VESA mount allows for wall or pole mounting as well.

Key components such as the power supply or hard drive can be replaced in minutes, and both the processor and RAM are upgradeable for more speed and performance. Modularity also allows the user to customize the workstation to meet specific needs, without having to pay for features that won’t be utilized.

Users can choose from a 2-line order confirmation and static POP (point of purchase), 12” Interactive Order Confirmation/POP or a 15” Interactive Order Confirmation/POP. The main display is a user-adjustable resistive or capacitive touch screen. All of Envo’s main displays have the advantages of LED backlight technology for images with greater contrast, helping customers and employees view text and images more easily. Typically, LED backlights consume 20% to 30% less power than conventional fluorescent backlit LCD screens. In addition, LED displays are also more reliable, do not need time to warm up and do not yellow over time, making them a better choice for POS workstations.

Additional features of Panasonic Envo include an open platform, speed that more than doubles the performance of earlier Stingray models, a smaller size, and an I/O panel on top of the workstation for easier cable management and peripheral troubleshooting. Envo also offers more power to run other technology from the workstation without the POS performance suffering, built-in speakers that allow training videos to run on the workstation and a quiet fan that will not interfere with customer communications. Optional magnetic stripe readers improve order input speed and accuracy.
