Point-of-sale (POS) terminals such as traditional clerk-operated checkout terminals or cashier drawers are frequently seen in retail stores. In addition, retail stores may also include a number of information retail terminals such as kiosk-type devices with built-in touch screen interface.
Kiosk retail terminals or thin client kiosks are generally located throughout the shopping area to perform various, informational retail functions such as product demonstrations (e.g. an audio/video/flash advertisement), customer data collection, or as an HR recruiting stations (collecting/maintaining customer profile database). Payment station serves a transaction function in which a customer may use the kiosk to tender payment for his or her items for purchase or return rentals.
Information retail terminals provide product information to customers. As well, they can be used as an interactive station assisting customers in response to questions they input via a keypad or touchscreen.
CLI products range from text terminal, mobile net-book, stationary and integrated touchscreen thin clients to fulfill your retail need of server based computing, cloud computing, or desktop virtualization.
