Hospitality Solutions International says it has redefined the mobile POS model by adding iPod touch technology. The technology is "the perfect mobile companion for Profit Series point of sale software," HSI boasts. The iPod touch, weighing a mere 4.05 oz. and enclosed in a stainless steel case, will operate the POS application up to six hours on a single charge.
The 3.5-inch display permits full POS screen viewing, and screens may be viewed in portrait or landscape orientations. Users open guest checks, select menu items, and orders go to the kitchen in the same way as standard POS terminals. The Apple iPod touch handheld uses the same interfaces and screens as a standard terminal. The company says the device saves money by "placing mobile POS within reach for a great number of our clients."
