<p>Vik Devjee, Director, Sales and Marketing, POS POS, says the Beetle /mini matches the unique needs of the Australian marketplace, something Wincor Nixdorf recognises as it looks to expand its presence in the Asia Pacific region.</p>
<p>“Unlike other regions across the world, Australia has many thousands of small and medium sized retail outlets, all of which are looking for different solutions to help them compete with the ever-increasing threat from the large supermarket chains,” says Devjee. “Specifically designed for the retail industry, the Beetle /mini is a cost effective, simple solution which can be tailored to fit a retailer’s unique requirements.”</p>
<p>The Beetle /mini is energy efficient, compact and simple to install and use. Taking up minimal counter space, it uses an Intel Atom processor and runs Microsoft’s Windows Embedded for Point of Service (WEPOS) operating system, which is specifically designed for retail.</p>
<p>“Because WEPOS is purpose built for the retail sector, it supports all the applications and devices commonly used by retailers,” explains Tim Schroder, Embedded Channel Strategy Manager, Microsoft. “It is simple to install and integrate, reducing time spent setting up POS systems, such as the Beetle /mini.”</p>
<p>The reliable and robust Beetle /mini is the newest addition to Wincor Nixdorf’s Beetle POS Family. Wincor Nixdorf provides IT solutions and services to retailers in more than 90 countries, including a large part of the Asia Pacific region.
