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.

Embedded ROM versus PC-based terminal architecture:

Embedded ROM POS Terminals PC-based POS Terminals
Upfront costs similar to PC-based but total cost of ownership over long period of time is significantly less. Basically, Upfront costs lower than ROM-based but maintenance/repair costs much higher due to moving parts such as hard disks and CPU fans.
Much more secure – terminal designed specifically for Point of Sale applications. Virus cannot infect ROM-based and no way to download other software not intended for system. PC not specifically designed for POS applications. Viruses, software downloads, etc. can all affect system performance. HDD needs optimization from time to time. Windows updates cause both tentative and constant system slow down.
Designed for harsh restaurant and quick service operation environments with resistance to dust and grease.(Spill-proof with IP rating, no moving parts, solid state technology) Not designed for harsh environments. CPU fan needed to cool most PC’s. A control fan causes dust and grease to enter the PC. Water-cooling system is too expensive.
Support – simple to support with no need for recurring customer maintenance contracts. Support – ongoing requirement for support with annual maintenance contracts.
Embedded operating system specifically designed for POS applications Most PC-based systems rely on Microsoft Windows, which opens up the opportunity for technical issues. POS application runs under O/S therefore 2 software packages must be supported.
Firmware upgrades are possible via flash updates. No compatibility issues with Operating Systems. Software upgrades and Operating Systems occasionally are at conflict with each other, thus requiring a higher level of support when upgrading POS application.
Data integrity/security – high due to design of ROM-based terminals. Data integrity/security – Most POS applications utilize database system not specifically designed for POS applications, therefore open to corruption and security issues.
Hardware support – Min. 10 year availability of all parts. Hardware support – Common for PC manufacturers to change boards, assemblies from one production to another, therefore it may be difficult to obtain exact replacement parts. Windows upgrade often requires hardware upgrade because of higher performance requirements as well as POS application upgrade. These ends up in higher costs and shorter product life.
