Robust, purpose-built embedded POS terminal
Uniwell’s embedded POS technology combines the strengths of a cash register with the advanced functionality found in many PC-based POS systems. The latest HX series POS terminals benefit from solid-state hardware, so there are no moving parts, no fans, no hard disk drive. This increases the reliability and stability of the equipment. Also, the terminal is purpose-built, so while many standard computers or tablets can’t handle the busy point of sale environment – Uniwell’s touchscreen POS terminals can.
Proprietary software specifically designed for POS
Being specifically designed for point of sale operations, Uniwell POS terminals are fast and user-friendly. The touchscreen layout is easy to set up and can be customised for local requirements, thus simplifying staff training. Each Uniwell HX series POS terminal contains features designed to suit the specific needs of many hospitality and food retail sectors, including scheduled price level changes, automated promotions, customer loyalty, restaurant condiment instructions and table tracking.
Greater security due to Uniwell Corporation’s exclusive operating system
Another benefit of the proprietary software found in Uniwell point of sale terminals is the security it affords. The POS can’t be used to browse the internet or access other apps, so it is less likely to be misused or stolen. 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 series POS, compared to the minutes it often takes for a Windows-based terminal to reboot.
Designed with the benefit of 40 years of POS development experience
Uniwell Corporation released their first cash register in 1979, so they understand what is required in a POS terminal. But they have also innovated, leading the development of new point of sale technology. 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 manage the terminals and provide the kind of detailed analysis that allows vendors to properly manage their business. Uniwell HX series terminals provide high-speed data transfer to the back-office, using a standard network infrastructure and communication protocols. So there is no need for specialised cabling or hardware. Uniwell HX series POS terminals can often be located on the same network as your existing IT equipment.
