HP has announced innovative new solutions designed to meet the unique needs of small and medium-sized retailers and hospitality operators.
The new HP Engage One Prime expands HP’s portfolio of point-of-sale systems with an all-in-one solution optimized for SMB retail and hospitality businesses.
According to the firm, small retailers today demand for affordable, highly reliable and easy to manage systems with the same elegant design of those used by their larger enterprise counterparts. Additionally, counterspace is at a premium so they need point-of-sale systems that are compact and include essential peripherals that leave their counters clutter free.
“To effectively compete in today’s market, small and medium-sized retailers and hospitality operators need more than a cash register and a storefront,” said Natasja Andringa, EMEA Business Unit & Sales Manager, Retail Solutions, HP. “Smaller reatilers want solutions that enable them to improve customer experiences in their retail and hospitality environments and HP Engage One Prime is built to meet their needs.”
HP Engage One Prime is an all-in-one point of sale solution designed to meet the needs of smaller businesses. HP Engage One Prime is ready to run quickly, integrates seamlessly with popular software and payment services and has the reliability and security that retail businesses need.
The new device is available in black or white, complement modern aesthetics with a sophisticated all-in-one designed for the cost-conscious. Maximize counterspace with clean cable management and the flexibility of the 14-inch diagonal Full HD touchscreen that comfortably tilts and easily flips between associates and customers. An optional integrated customer-facing display is available on select models.
Organisations can experience business-ready simplicity with built-in peripherals like a magnetic stripe reader and NFC to authenticate associates, and a camera-based scanner to scan QR codes and merchandise, according to HP. Do even more with optional peripherals such as a receipt printer, barcode scanner, fingerprint reader for added security, cash drawer, and iButton reader. Enjoy the flexibility of a point-of-sale system that integrates seamlessly with popular third-party point-of-sale software and payment services from HP Partners.
The HP Engage One optimises a system that includes the Android 8.1 OS which comes with an added layer of security, a powerful multi-core heterogenous Qualcomm APQ8053 processor and your choice of CPU speed, memory, and storage. Focus on customers and business goals, instead of technical support, with the reassurance of an included one-year HP limited warranty; extend protection with Care Packs up to three years.
HP will also work with other select payment provider partners globally, as well as select independent software vendors (ISVs) to bundle point-of-sale software solutions with HP Engage One Prime.
HP Engage One Prime is expected to be available in February 2019 from HP and the company’s global network of authorised point-of sale partners. Additionally, retail ISVs including talech, Wynd, Systopia, Extenda Retail and Protel plan to support the solution.
