POS in a box

Product: HP rp3000 POS bundle

Bundling is a way for ISOs and merchant level salespeople to simplify deals for merchants on a host of services. Merchants don't need to know, and in many cases don't want to know, every fee for every transaction or the pricing structures for all programs ISOs offer.

It seems Hewlett-Packard Development Co. LP has taken the concept of bundling one step further. HP recently launched the HP POS bundle, which contains POS hardware, software and additional services in one package.

Designed for small and medium-sized retailers, the bundled solution is based on the HP rp3000 POS System, and HP said it gives merchants everything they need to customize a complete in-store POS platform.

According to HP, the POS bundle is quick and easy to set up and saves time, money and headaches associated with building POS systems from scratch.

According to John Snaider, Vice President and General Manager, PC Business - Americas, HP, the solution "pairs best-in-class hardware with an array of independent software vendor applications to offer customers the greatest flexibility of platform choices available on the market today."


The HP rp3000 features Intel Corp.'s Atom processor for low energy consumption and a "retail-hardened" design for reliability and resistance to wear and tear.

An array of software partners have certified HP's POS system to work with their applications, most of which support a diversity of retail environments and specialty markets. HP's partners that service specialty markets include:

Many of these software companies have reseller channels.


HP peripherals that work with the bundled solution include a thermal receipt printer, a cash drawer, a POS keyboard with integrated mag stripe reader and a universal serial bus bar code scanner.

The system can also be configured with an HP touchscreen monitor or flat panel displays. The bundle became available to HP-authorized resellers Dec. 1, 2008.

In addition to the solution, HP gives its customers access to its Total Care Access Program, which provides merchants with a portfolio of services, support and security designed to assist them in managing, protecting and growing their businesses.
