Sleek, fixed-to-mobile docking station

Product: Bouncepad Mobi

Bouncepad, a provider of commercial displays, accessories and docking stations for tablet POS environments introduced the Bouncepad Mobi, a case and docking station designed to keep iPads and their accompanying mobile card readers securely attached, charged and sharable. The solution employs the company's magnetized, patent-pending MagTwist Connector to keep card readers connected to the case. When needed, card readers can be released with a single twist, company representatives stated.

"Mobi's drop-proof, thin case is light, durable and looks good," said Shaun Bruno, director of business development, North America at Bouncepad. "It can transform iPads into mobile points of sale in seconds. Major retail and hospitality brands are already deploying it."

Bruno additionally noted that Bouncepad Mobi is commercial-grade and card reader agnostic. "We wanted to build a sophisticated but simple solution that incorporates everything you need in a payment device," he said. "We also wanted to make it affordable for small and midsize business owners."

Customer-centric design

Bouncepad researchers and engineers routinely go "on safari" to see how merchants use mobile docking stations, Bruno said. They found some merchants using consumer devices without many features and others implementing "very industrial-looking" tablet sleds with integrated scanners.

"In some cases, merchants who invested in portable in-store displays assumed their employees would use them and transform the customer experience," Bruno said. "But some of the sleds were heavy and cumbersome to use, and wire issues kept some units from being fully charged. Merchants also reported their employees were pushing back and asking store owners to return to previous, traditional in-store checkout methods." Retail and hospitality merchants are trying to integrate newer technologies to transform their brick-and-mortar environments, Bruno noted. Mobi is designed with merchants, sales associates and consumers in mind. It eliminates the use of wires by using contact charging points, and its magnetic single-twist connector can attach any card reading device.

All-in-one mPOS solution

Mobi is designed to go wherever merchants and sales associates are. Its removable nylon-weave strap makes it easy to transport. The product offers a simple solution for every touchpoint and facilitates order-taking, line-busting, content-sharing and payments processing.

Following are additional features and benefits the company pointed out:

Mobi's simple, durable design reflects Bouncepad's years of product design experience. Its durability and ease of use makes it ideal for high-traffic, high-transaction commercial environments, Bruno stated.
