CASIO ANNOUNCES NEW QT-6100 FLASH ROM TOUCH TERMINAL
QT-6100 Offers Many of the Functions Found on Higher Priced PC Based Systems
DOVER, NJ, JULY 14, 2008 -- Casio America, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of a new POS/ECR flash ROM, touch terminal, the QT-6100. Casio's System Products Division will introduce the QT-6100 during its' national dealer meeting that is being held at the RSPA Show in Las Vegas today.
The QT-6100 is a new addition to Casio's flagship flash ROM touch terminal product line, which includes the successful QT-6000 terminal. The QT-6000, introduced four years ago, emerged from the joint software development efforts of Casio Computer Co., Ltd. and its subsidiaries in America, UK and Germany to create a powerful touch screen terminal for hospitality and retail applications. To capitalize on the QT-6000's success, Casio has designed the QT-6100 to enhance the flash ROM touch terminal product line.
The QT-6100 enhancements will include:
FTP Communications for multi-site owners wanting to get sales and program information to/from a central site to the stores in a reliable, inexpensive and quick fashion using an internet connection.
Credit Card Pre-Authorization for operations that allow customers to run tabs (bars & nightclubs). The customer's credit card is required once at the start of the transaction for authorization of a set dollar amount. As customer orders product it is deducted from the pre-authorized amount.
Interface to the NCI 6712 ounce scale for those operations such as yogurt, ice cream and candy that charge for their products by price per ounce.
"We are thrilled to add this new model to our flash ROM touch terminal product line", said
Frank Romeo, Vice President of Casio's Business Products Division. "The QT-6100 offers many of the same functions that are found on higher priced PC based systems, but with the stability and reliability of a cash register product -- that means no hassles of an operating system or hard drive."
The QT-6100 will offer many of the same hardware features found on the QT-6000 including:
High Resolution 12.1" touch display
10/100 Base-T Ethernet network port
Compact Flash Card Port
Multiple serial ports for peripheral connectivity including:
- Remote Display
The QT-6100 software will emulate many of the great applications found on the QT-6000 such as graphical icons on keys, graphical split check screen, floating guest checks, add & transfer check functionality, time & attendance, scheduler function to automate operations based on time and day, mix & match discounting, customer names on check buttons, scanning and inventory to name a few.
The QT-6100 will be positioned as an entry level system in Casio's product line below the current QT-6000. The price positioning of the QT-6100 provides Casio dealers the ability to offer an affordable solution to price conscience customers desiring the advantages of a touch screen solution for their business.
Casio America anticipates shipping the QT-6100's to Casio authorized dealers by the end of August.
