An elegant POS terminal
The new PAR EverServ 7000 POS terminal from PAR Technology Corp. subsidiary ParTech Inc., reportedly delivers the rugged durability and performance features hospitality and retail businesses have come to expect from a company that has been pioneering POS technology solutions since 1978.
"Our customers told us they wanted an innovative new terminal that has top performance and is more modular/scalable than what was currently available in the market," said Rahi Roshandel, Senior Director, Hardware Product Management for ParTech. "We believe the EverServ 7000 definitely hits the mark, and the early feedback from our key customers has been extremely enthusiastic."
Roshandel said the "game-changing" technology will inspire merchants to upgrade their POS hardware. He believes one factor that might convince merchants to switch to the PAR EverServ 7000 is that it's built on an intelligent system that can support sharing and analysis of data across multiple devices and the cloud. Another benefit is its compatibility with Microsoft Corp. Windows software products, spanning from the XPe to the soon-to-be-released Windows 8.
"Built for applications designed for the Windows Embedded platform, the PAR EverServ 7000 offers hospitality and retail companies a solution that benefits users on a number of levels, including increased multitouch capability and the flexibility and familiarity of Windows," stated Karen Smith, Microsoft Worldwide Senior Product Manager. An optional projected capacitive screen supports multitouch or gesture-based applications on certain operating systems.
Designed to withstand the harshest of environments, the flat-surfaced terminal screen reportedly operates even after liquids have been poured on it. PAR EverServ 7000 features a second-generation Intel Core processor for high-speed performance and graphical capabilities. To reduce costly down time, the POS system provides remote diagnostics and management, so merchants can perform maintenance before a device fails. Multiple components offered through ParTech also make the system scalable to fit merchant needs, the company reported.
"From an industrial design perspective, we challenged our engineering teams to produce a stunning, contemporary looking POS terminal that visually rises above the competition - and they delivered," said Scott Langdoc, Chief Technology Officer at ParTech. "Impressively, these design changes together with material performance enhancements were achieved at a price point even more competitive than our previous model."
