Runza chose Casio’s QT-6600 for its reliability, intuitiveness and overall cost-efficiency. The QT-6600 provides a variety of features found in PC-based equipment without the inherent hard drive, hardware and operating system problems. Casio’s QT-6600 features six RS232c ports that support various configurations of peripherals which include printers, scanners, scales, coin/liquor dispensers, surveillance devices, etc. Its smart network environment optimizes store management with the ability to update the sales of each table, track inventory, usage, maintenance, etc. The QT-6600 offers superior security and is outfitted with an operation system that will resume quickly where it left off after a power failure.
“We initially installed Casio’s QT-6600 flash ROM-based terminals in 2011 and were immediately impressed with the technology. The training curve for the QT-6600 was very low, and enabled us to speed up transactions and credit card processing almost instantaneously,” said Renee Sjulin, Vice President of Runza. “Overall, the QT-6600 provides an integrated payment solution necessary to run an efficient franchise.”
Equipped with a wide, bright 15-inch color TFT LCD touch panel, the QT-6600 assures easy and accurate operations. Graphical icons assigned to keys offer clear categorization for item registration, numeric entry and entry confirmation which facilitates easy operations. The QT-6600’s display touch screen can also be easily tilted and adjusted from a range of 20-70 degrees, for select operator viewing.
“Casio’s POS equipment and electronic cash registers offer seamless transactions, as well as enhanced processing speed and a lower cost of ownership by eliminating rental fees, unnecessary hardware and add-ons,” said Glenn Deal, Sales & Development Manager of Casio’s System Products Division. “We are pleased to be partnering with Runza, and look forward to providing them with the optimum equipment to be successful.”
