Global POS Brand Posiflex Targets UK Retail and Hospitality Markets with Dedicated Hybrid Solution

Launch of new Mobile POS terminal underlines leading brand's focus on Europe for growth

London, UK – Posiflex Technology, Inc., a global leading brand in the design and manufacture of POS solutions and peripherals, has announced its intention to expand its market share in the UK and Europe, with the launch of a revolutionary mobile POS, the MT-4008W. The new, ground-breaking solution provides retailers and hospitality companies with the mobility of a tablet combined with the powerful functionality of a traditional POS in one hybrid system.

The MT-4008W will be the star of the show for Posiflex at the forthcoming EuroCIS retail event in Dusseldorf, Germany, and will be amongst several new POS solutions to be demonstrated on the Posiflex booth (Hall 9/E22). This launch coincides with the company's intention to increase its focus on the UK and European markets, with the objective of replicating its success internationally where it is ranked fifth in the global ePOS sector.[1

Redefine the Mobile POS Experience - Hybrid Solution

The MT-4008W is an 8" mobile tablet which supports an MSR attachment and can be integrated with the choice of a detachable pistol grip or a hand strap depending on the application. Moreover, when the tablet docks at the station, an all-in-one POS is instantly at the disposal of store staff. The concept of hybrid POS is a perfect fit for both retail and hospitality, offering upward mobility as well as the advantages of a fixed POS system that delivers greater efficiency and speed.

"The MT-4008W creates a brand new experience for mobile retailing and hospitality applications," said Owen Chen, President and CEO of Posiflex Technology, Inc. "We believe that we have developed a unique solution that brings all the benefits of fixed and mobile POS together in a hybrid device that delivers the highest quality performance in whichever way the retailer and hospitality players choose to use it."

Powered by an Intel processor, this mobile tablet runs Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry with a 1024 x768 screen resolution; therefore most Windows-based applications can be ported over with minimal to no modification. Sleek yet robust, the resistance to drop of the MT-4008W is from pocket height up to 3.5 ft. The detachable pistol grip is a truly ingenious invention. It not only allows for optional a 1D or 2D barcode scanner built-in, but also houses a swappable battery that effectively extends the operational life of the tablet. And most importantly, its ergonomic design and precise weight balance enable the store staff to easily carry and handle the tablet for an eight-hour shift.

Another highlight of MT-4008W is its charging dock station, which has a 3" WIFI thermal POS receipt printer built-in, and connectivity options to a wide range of peripherals. The integration of tablet and dock station allows the device to have the features and functionality of an all-in-one POS.

At EuroCIS (24-26 February), Posiflex will also be presenting its full POS portfolio:

• HS Series - Award-winning all-in-one POS

• XT Series - Fan-free POS Terminal

• TX Series - Fan-free POS Box

• Android POS

• AURA-6906W - Web-based POS Printer

New Android Mobile POS launching soon

The company will be launching a new Android version of its MT Series Mobile POS solutions in the spring. The MT4008A is designed to meet a broad range of business applications running on the popular Android operating system.
