HP announces new point-of-sale system powered by Windows 10
Today, HP unveiled a new, versatile all-in-one point-of-sale (POS) system, powered by Windows 10: the HP ElitePOS.
The ElitePOS modernizes the retail POS device with an innovative, sleek modular design that supports use cases beyond checkout to help the retail and hospitality industries deliver a consistent and compelling experience. With options such as a receipt printer that integrates into the column stand and a magnetic stripe reader that can be built into the display, retailers can complement their store environment with a clean counter space.
The ElitePOS is built to withstand extensive usage, with an extended lifecycle that retailers depend on. The system is designed to pass various military standards – or MIL-STD – tests, can handle spills by channeling liquid away from the device components, and provide efficient cooling with side venting for improved reliability. Additionally, line-busting will be a breeze with Windows 10 or Windows IoT, fast DDR4 memory, and 7th generation Intel Core processors with optional vPro technology.
As security continues to be a major concern in the retail and hospitality industries, the ElitePOS delivers both hardware-based and integrated software security features, including:
- BIOS-level device security to provide protection in the event of a malware attack with HP Sure Start Gen3, the industry’s first self-healing BIOS, and HP BIOSphere Gen3, the industry-leading firmware ecosystems.
- User authentication technology, including an optional fingerprint reader with Windows Hello, to help prevent unauthorized access; Credential Guard for secure user authentication and password protection, and Device Guard, which lets IT managers create rules to run only signed, trusted, and approved applications on the POS system to help protect against walk-up and low-level attacks through USB ports.
- Physical security of the device itself with an optional bolt-to-counter configuration, or VESA mounting and K-Lock features.
The ElitePOS is expected to be available in August 2017. To learn more about the point-of-sale system, visit hp.com/go/elitepos, or see the ElitePOS in person August 6-9 at RetailNow 2017 in booth #410-412.
