Introducing Echo. Our Newest POS System Model
By on

World, meet Echo.  We are echo full packageunveiling our newest POS system model called Echo!  It combines the power and functionality of a traditional POS system with the simplicity and sleek design of a tablet-based system. The Echo software includes all of the front-end and back-end features businesses need, with functionality for both retail businesses and restaurants.  The software has been developed using modules, which allows you to hide features you don’t need in order to maintain an uncluttered interface for simplicity and ease of use.

Our built-for-purpose hardware is custom manufactured to stand up to the rigors of everyday use in high traffic restaurant and retail environments.  It features an all-in-one design with a 13.3″ screen.  The base can swivel to allow customers to sign on-screen for credit card transactions.

The new Echo system will utilize the cloud and local storage to operate.  If the Internet goes down, the information is stored locally until the Internet goes back online.  You can manage the POS through the Internet in real-time.  It will also be Apple Pay™ compatible once they release it.

And the best part is there are no upfront costs and it is only $39/mo!

In addition to all of these changes, the back-end has been completely rebuilt to deliver a more secure, reliable and scalable platform.
