6 Good Reasons to Choose a Uniwell Hybrid ePOS Solution
Robust, purpose-built Hybrid ePOS terminal
Hybrid ePOS provides the reliability of a ROM-based terminal with the power and functionality of a PC-based POS. Uniwell’s HX terminals benefit from solid-state technology, so there are no moving parts, no fans, no hard disk drive. This increases the reliability and stability of the hardware. Also, the terminal is purpose-built, so while many computers or tablets can’t handle the environments that their point of sale application might require – Uniwell’s Hybrid ePOS terminals can.
Proprietary software specifically designed for POS
Because the system is specifically designed for point of sale operations, it is quick and easy to operate. The touchscreen layout is easy to set up and use. The configuration of each HX terminal can be customised for its environment, and contains powerful POS functionality that suits the specific needs of many retail sectors. Features such as scheduled price level changes, ‘mix & match’ promotions, customer loyalty, restaurant condiment instructions and table tracking are all included in the Uniwell HX terminal.
Greater security due to Uniwell Corporation’s exclusive operating system
Another benefit of the proprietary software found in Uniwell’s Hybrid ePOS terminal is the security it affords. Staff can’t browse the internet or use other apps on the terminal. Because it is not reliant on a 3rd party operating system, it is not susceptible to viruses or hacking. Also of note is the short start-up and shutdown times – just seconds for the custom-designed HX terminal, rather than minutes for a Windows-based POS terminal.
Designed with the benefit of over 35 years of POS experience
Uniwell Corporation released their first cash register in 1979, so they understand what is required in a point of sale terminal. But they have also moved with the times, adopting new technology as the market demanded it. Additionally, Uniwell Corporation is solely focused on POS – so their design resources are not stretched across large numbers of electronic products. Their products are sold globally, but they work with local distributors and solution providers to tailor their products to the specific needs of domestic markets.
High-speed network communication to the back-office
Serious POS systems require easy-to-use, informative back-office software to maintain the terminals and provide the kind of reporting that allows you to properly manage your business. Uniwell HX terminals provide high-speed data transfer to the back-office, using an IT standard Cat-5/6 infrastructure and FTP communications protocol. So there is no need for specialised cabling or network infrastructure. Uniwell HX terminals can often be located on the same network as your existing IT equipment.
