Leveraging over 20 years’ point of sale (POS) and retail software experience, The Digipos Freedom Tablet has been designed to enhance the in-store experience, while joining up stores, e-commerce and mobile infrastructure. The tablet allows sales assistants to move in front of the till to serve the customer more personally, with access to real-time information on products, offers and stock.

The Windows-enabled device can be used as a mobile tablet or docked at the point of sale to process PCI compliant transactions.  The Freedom Tablet integrates with retailers’ existing POS infrastructure and can be managed by their in-house IT teams, helping to minimise total cost of ownership.

Commenting on the retail device, Steve Thomas, Omnico’s Chief Technology Officer says, “Consumer tablet devices have opened up a new world of mobile computing, but deploying these devices in a retail environment is far from practical. They are not easily integrated with the existing  point of sale infrastructure and aren’t built for heavy-duty use. The Digipos Freedom Tablet is the result of extensive R&D and is the first device of its kind that addresses retailers’ practical needs, yet adds a new dimension for sales assistants to enhance customer service."

“It’s all part of our omni-channel vision for retail. It’s no longer enough for retailers to be ‘bricks and clicks’ to compete against pure-play e-commerce providers. They are faced with two big challenges: enhancing the retail experience and joining up ‘islands of technology’ so that mobile, e-commerce and stores aren’t inefficient silos. The Freedom Tablet helps to address these challenges.”

The Freedom Tablet can be deployed in a variety of retail environments from department stores, to cafés, gyms and boutique shops.
