HP debuts touch-screen sales system for retail

HP-retailposHP introduced a touch-enabled point-of-sale (POS) system for busy retailers seeking to cost-effectively manage their businesses. The HP ap5000 All-in-One POS System features a self-contained combination of products, a compact space-saving design, and it requires only one power outlet. Hp says this compact system will maximize your work space and sports a stylish design. The new system includes a central processing unit, touch-enabled display, magnetic stripe reader and either a two-line customer display or a 10.4-inch LCD customer display to enhance promotional activities.

“Addressing customer preferences, HP has expanded its retail store portfolio with an all-in-one solution that provides increased flexibility and results for a variety of business market segments,” said Ray Carlin, vice president, Retail Store Solutions Global Business Unit, HP. “As the retail market recovers from economic hard times, HP has developed a broad retail product portfolio to best meet changing customer needs.”

Pricing for the HP ap5000 All-in-One POS System is available through HP partners and the system is expected to be available worldwide in late March.
