Improving Retail Experiences with Digital Signage and iPad POS

Tablets are finding their way into just about every aspect of retail operations. Whether it’s the use of an iPad for POS or interactive digital signage helping shoppers find and research products at store counters. Tablets are speeding up everything from transactions to credit applications, and top retailers and brands are making those tablets blend beautifully with store aesthetics using Armodilo’s secure tablet mounts.

The checkout lanes and counters of big retail may still be using big, old-school Point Of Sale (POS) terminals, but if you pay for goods and services at a small chain store or independent business, and there’s a good chance your transaction will be processed on a tablet or iPad POS.

Tablet POS systems can cost up to 85% less than traditional PC-based POS systems, while offering more functionality using less counter space. Tablets even help retail brands offer a user experience everyday consumers now find familiar because it is exactly the same interface as their own phones and tablets.

Just sticking an unprotected and unsecured tablet on a counter won’t work for long in a high-traffic retail or commercial space. The engine that drives your retail business needs to be secured in place in a durable enclosure that looks great on the counter while being used all day, every day. Our case studies and inspiration page will inspire you with uses of tablets and iPads for POS and retail.
