HP Expands POS Options

HP said it has expanded its business systems portfolio to include advanced point-of-sale (POS) solutions for the small to midsized retail market, including new business desktop PCs with enhanced performance and security and HP’s Total Care service and support.

The new HP rp3000 Point of Sale (POS) solution offers small to midsized retailers functionality exceeding the POS capabilities and lifespan of a standard PC or traditional electronic cash register, the company said.

The top-of-the-line HP Compaq dc7900 business desktop series includes security, productivity and power-saving features to provide business power users a reliable computing experience that can handle the most demanding workloads.

“HP continues to deliver the innovative computing solutions needed to drive a successful business — providing reliable products and stronger security, along with support services and custom solutions that help our customers stay focused on their business instead of the technology that runs it,” said Jeri Callaway, senior vice president of Personal Systems Group at HP.

The new design is easier to install and use, and also saves on space. The rp3000 was designed based on input from small- to medium-sized and independent retailers, and it helps manage multiple aspects of operations to save on time and money. A variety of POS software applications can be used to help manage inventory, speed up transactions, track employee time cards, and track customer shopping habits for gift card and discount promotions.

HP’s POS solutions are also backed by HP Total Care service and support, including a standard three-year warranty covering parts, labor and onsite support.

The HP rp3000 POS Solution is expected to be available on Sept. 30 through HP authorized resellers for a starting price of $699. More information on that offering and others can be found at www.hp.com/go/POS.
