Also offers iBISTRO for QSRs

AUSTIN, Texas -- Wincor Nixdorf, a supplier of IT solutions for the banking and retail industries, has rolled out the enhanced BEETLE/iPOS, a compact, all-in-one point-of-sale (POS) system.

The BEETLE /iPOS includes an integrated power supply, customer display and TFT touch screen in a small-footprint, splash-proof design. It is ideal for hospitality, food services, and convenience/ petroleum retailing, but it performs equally well as [image-nocss] a kiosk or in traditional POS environments, especially where space is at a premium.
