CES 2013: Turn iPad into retail check-out


Griffin used this year’s International CES to expand its business solutions offering with the introduction of two point of sale solutions.

“iOS devices have become the de-facto point of sale standard for business owners everywhere,”” said J. Curtis, Director of Griffin’s B2B Product Development. “”iPad-based POS solutions offer the ultimate in flexibility at a fraction of what traditional systems cost and we believe the hardware should follow suit””.

Apple’s robust iOS architecture and intuitive Multi-Touch interface make the iPad ideal for use in commercial and high-traffic locations. Griffin’s family of iPad Kiosks provide the perfect balance of access and security: and it’s tough enough to stand up to intense everyday use in commercial settings.

Griffin’s new Kiosk Retail, starting at $299, adds a built-in magnetic card reader with TDES encryption and DUKPT key management for security. Kiosk Retail displays an iPad 2 or iPad (3rd generation) inside an impact-resistant housing. All cables are routed through the center of the steel armature for a beautiful, clean installation in any environment.

Griffin has partnered with point of sale system providers ShopKeep POS and POSiOS as exclusive launch partners for Kiosk Retail. ShopKeep POS has a patent-pending POS app for iPad that gives merchants the power to run and analyze their businesses in an elegant, easy-to-use and inexpensive cloud-based interface. ShopKeep POS provides retailers with a robust iPad POS solution that can swipe hundreds of credit card per day and help merchants manage inventory, reports, and customers anywhere and anytime. With over 3,500 merchants running their app, ShopKeep POS is the leading iPad POS system for specialty retailers.

Similarily, POSiOS has revolutionized the way restaurants integrate iOS devices into their cash register solutions. The Belgian company has developed a restaurant POS app called Restaurant Butler that provides restaurant staff with an easy-to-use, fully customizable iPad cash register. The app also enables multiple devices at a time, giving waiters a mobile client they can use to place orders tableside and send to the kitchen in multiple languages. Additionally, Restaurant Butler brings a new restaurant experience to the consumer with self-ordering, remote table reservations, and restaurant location services.

Both ShopKeep and POSiOS have integrated Kiosk Retail hardware compatibility into their apps and will be offering their solutions to merchants in February.
