Elo Touch Solutions Goes Big and Mobile for Retailers

January 22, 2013

Original Inventor of Touchscreen Technology Enables Retailers to go mobile, enhance the buyer experience, and ensure brand consistency

Elo Touch Solutions, a premier global supplier of touch-enabled technology, announced new interactive digital signage and mobile touchcomputing tablet products designed to help retailers enhance their customer experience and drive sales efficiency.

Elo is leveraging the industry's leading point-of-sale (POS), point-of-information (POI), and interactive digital signage (IDS) platforms that are intuitive, reliable and secure. Rather than requiring the user to adapt to one type of touch, Elo's architecture delivers broad flexibility of acoustic, capacitive, infrared, optical, projected and resistive technology which adapts to a variety of retail environments where mobility, design style, lighting, moisture, gloves, 24/7 reliability and ease of deployment can all be optimized to address particular retailer requirements.

"Elo's millions of real-life retail installations all over the world provide unique insight for our next generation of touch innovation," said Craig Witsoe, CEO of Elo Touch Solutions. "With our broad product portfolio, proven history of quality & reliability, and strong industry partnerships — Elo is professional retail, built for touch, to help redefine how you attract and retain customers."

New Mobile Tablet

Running Microsoft Windows and featuring an Intel Atom processor with solid-state drive, the tablet has been purpose-built to support leading point-of-sale software environments and the mobile POS (mPOS) initiatives being embraced by leading retailers. An integrated magnetic stripe reader, barcode scanning, removable battery and wireless printing/networking is housed in a form factor designed to withstand being dropped on a concrete floor. An integrated docking station provides connectivity to a broad array of peripheral interfaces while also charging the main battery and an auxiliary battery pack simultaneously.

New Interactive Digital Signage

Elo's new 70-inch interactive digital sign (7001L) is one of the largest, thinnest (less than 4 inches), and brightest (700 lumens) solutions designed to make digital signage brand experiences interactive. The new display sports a durable steel chassis and tempered pure glass touchscreen for a long life of reliable performance in nearly any retail location. Optical technology provides multi-touch and gesture support for consumer and retail associate ease-of-use by recognizing a touch with a finger, gloved hand, prosthetic, stylus, credit card and/or pen. Two optional, slide-in computing modules feature Intel Core i3 or i5 processors to enable the 7001L to become an integrated all-in-one unit with simplified installation and maintenance. The 7001L also supports the Intel Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) to integrate with other OPS-compliant computing modules.
