Sharp Electronics UK has announced the addition of three new models in a black finish to their existing range of XE-A Electronic Cash Registers. The XE-A102, XE-A203, XE-A213, which together make up Sharp’s most successful range of entry level ECRs, will now be available in contemporary black, to blend in with the most style-conscious of environments. These new additions to the current light grey models, which have proved so popular with end-users, will give retailers a choice of finishes to complement their store interiors.
Entry-level ECRs for a range of businesses
The three XE-A models form the basis of Sharp’s entry-level ECR offering, and target small, start-up and growing businesses, as well as hospitality outlets. The XE-A102 offers reliable printing and a bright LED display in a compact design, while the XE-A203 features a fast thermal printer and larger lockable cash drawer to cope with the demands of busier outlets. The XE-A213 has a spill-proof keyboard making it ideal for hospitality users.
Outstanding sales success
Sharp UK’s EPoS/ECR product manager, Kevin English, commented: “Sharp’s XE-A range of Electronic Cash Registers has proven to be an outstanding sales success over the past 4 years and we are certain that the stylish new black colour scheme will give us incremental growth to this already exceedingly popular product line-up.”
