EPoS Distributor, the York-based specialist retail IT distributor, is pleased to announce that it is expanding its current product portfolio following its recent appointment as a UK distributor for the electronic point-of-sale (EPoS) retail hardware products of Posiflex.


EPoS Distributor is now stocking Posiflex’s core PoS products including EPoS terminals, customer displays, cash drawers, magnetic stripe readers, thermal receipt printers, touchscreen monitors and programmable keyboards.


Michelle Spencer, business development manager for EPoS Distributor, commented: “Posiflex is already a well recognised organisation and we are very excited about this partnership. We are confident that the Posiflex brand will deliver high quality and reliable products, as well as a reasonable price tag to help our resellers deal with challenging end-user budgets. The Posiflex range is ideal for a range of applications within a number of markets including retail, hospitality, leisure, healthcare and the public sector.”


Quiet operation and space-saving design


The core EPoS terminals will include the KS-6215Plus fan-free system designed for hospitality and retail environments, offering a high quality terminal at competitive pricing, according to the distributor. The KS-6215Plus is powered by a 1.5GHz processor and incorporates a 15-inch LCD screen. Housed within an aluminium case and textured on high-gloss polycarbonate front bezel, this series adds a fashionable spotlight to retail counters, while providing effective ventilation for quiet operation.


The KS-6815N is designed under the concept of high performance, excellent reliability with an inexpensive price, and the small footprint is perfect for hospitality environments, added the company. It runs an Intel ATOM 1.6GHz processor, includes a 15-inch touch LCD panel with an optional built-in emergency uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to avoid sudden loss of power during transaction. This terminal’s dust and water-resistant design (IP44 capable) and sealed vents and screen, opens up a wide range of possible applications, especially in hospitality environments. The KS-6815N is a solid, high quality terminal designed with ease of maintenance and serviceability in mind, according to the firm.

The joint range of products now available to VARs [value-added resellers] and software providers is second to none and allows VARs to offer all customers and prospects an excellent range of solutions, which in turn will increase their business over the coming years. Posiflex has a long-established UK office with full technical and repair support to enhance the customer service offered, including the option of an on-site repair service. Reliability, quality and ease of use are words that our customers use to describe the Posiflex range of fan-free touch terminals.”
