TOSHIBA TEC has announced that it has had major interest in its WILLPOS B10 from two of the UK largest convenience stores after the launch event at Box Technologies. The Retailer and Channel event held over two days saw 10 leading UK manufacturers and over 70 major retailers attend, and over 80 of the UK’s leading ISV and VAR retail partners at the Channel Day.
TOSHIBA TEC recently signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Box Technologies, a leading technology and service provider. Under the agreement, Box Technologies will manage deployment of the Toshiba WILLPOS B10 Point-of Sale (POS) terminal in the UK, in addition to the exclusive service and repair of the product.
Ideal for supermarkets, fashion outlets and entertainment companies, specialty footwear stores, pet stores, sports goods shops, pharmacies, hair dressers, as well as discount and convenience stores, the WILLPOS B10 has an ultra-small footprint designed to be set either in horizontal or vertical position.
The WILLPOS B10 is packed with a complete set of retail-hardened features that make it easy to use, powerful, compatible and secure. Designed for maximum return on the shop floor, the WILLPOS B10 is pre-configured to operate in harsh retail environments and provides LAN connectivity to both legacy infrastructure and the newest POS peripherals. The WILLPOS B10 offers an attractive dual-screen option as well as multiple powered interfaces, whilst delivering low power consumption.
Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) calculations estimate that only 20 percent of the lifecycle cost is spent on hardware and software – the remaining expenditures allocated to usage, maintenance and admin costs. Smart retailers today look at POS products that can lower the TCO during the entire product lifecycle, hereby ensuring the best possible return on investment. POS systems designed by TOSHIBA TEC require very little maintenance and are built for long-haul 24/7 operations.
“TOSHIBA TEC has led the retail industry for many years with the continual release of innovative technology,” said Stuart Walker, Managing Director, Box Technologies. “This new generation of POS system is set to fundamentally transform the way information is managed as a strategic asset within a business. TOSHIBA TEC is one of the only companies that continues to manufacture all the components in its products and, as a result, can provide the assurance of longevity in its build quality. Along with our unique approach to total system care, from equipment specification to service maintenance, Box Technologies is the perfect partner to maximise the benefits of a business and a healthy POS solution.”
