HONG KONG, August 21, 2013 — HP today announced the HP ElitePad Mobile Point of Sale (POS) Solution, a POS device that helps retail and hospitality businesses enhance the customer experience and maximize staff productivity.


With the rise of sophisticated ecommerce and mobile technologies, today’s tech-savvy consumers expect instant, customized access to a brand’s offerings. However, delivering this type of personalized experience can be challenging for brick-and-mortar businesses.

The HP ElitePad Mobile POS Solution, which is composed of the HP ElitePad(1) plus the HP Retail Jacket for ElitePad, allows businesses to meet customer needs anywhere in the store with mobile POS and assisted selling capabilities. The new mobile solution integrates into a retailer’s existing IT infrastructure, saving time and money by allowing them to easily connect to store systems.

“Consumers expect the same personalized experience they get online or on their mobile device in a retailer’s brick-and-mortar store,” said Christian Charlton, Director, Retail Solutions, Printing and Personal Systems, HP Asia Pacific and Japan. “With the HP ElitePad Mobile POS Solution, store managers and associates are empowered to move the sale from behind the counter, giving them the ability to assist the customer right on the sales floor for immediate customer satisfaction.”

Built-in functionality of HP ElitePad Mobile POS Solution includes:

  • 1D/2D barcode scanner and three-track encrypted bi-directional magnetic stripe reader (MSR) for a fully integrated design with built-in POS functionality. Companies can more easily engage customers on the sales floor with mobile sales tools designed to inform and sell.
  • Integrated detachable hand strap provides enhanced stability and usability. The hand strap comes standard with every unit to steady the mobile POS so employees can focus on sales without worrying about grip fatigue.
  • The optionalsecondary battery enables the mobile solution to operate for extended hours to increase productivity and help make the most of every sales opportunity.

(1) The integrated display resolution of this system is below the threshold for snapping apps, a new feature that allows two Windows® apps to be viewed simultaneously side by side. This feature may be enabled by attaching an external display which supports a screen resolution of 1,366 x 768 or higher. Not all features are available in all editions of Windows 8. Systems may require upgraded and/or separately purchased hardware, drivers and/or software to take full advantage of Windows 8 functionality.
