Leading product design awards turn spotlight on MT-4008W
TAIPEI, Taiwan - Wednesday, April 15th 2015 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Posiflex Technology, Inc., a global leading brand in the design and manufacture of POS solutions and peripherals, has been recognized by the internationally renowned Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015. The MT-4008W, a revolutionary mobile POS solution which was launched at the end of 2014, was one of the entries to be bestowed with the honor of an award and was amongst winners selected from a total of 4928 entries from 56 countries.
The Red Dot Award, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, commends excellence in product design from a range of diverse categories and is judged by an international panel of experts across different design disciplines. It has become the most recognised product competition in the world attracting entries from leading global brands.
The Posiflex MT-4008W is a ground-breaking solution designed to provide retailers and hospitality companies with the mobility of a tablet combined with the powerful functionality of a stationary POS in one hybrid system. Andre Nataf, Director of Business Development for Digital Dining, notes "Posiflex's new hybrid tablet maximizes a servers time on the floor to fire off orders on the go, or use as a standard workstation, so they can focus on the customer rather than the transaction."
The 8” mobile tablet supports an MSR attachment and can be integrated with the choice of a detachable pistol grip or a hand strap depending on the application. Whilst being fully functional as an independent, mobile POS solution, the MT-4008W will also dock at the stationary station to create an all-in-one POS solution instantly. This concept of hybrid POS is a perfect fit for both retail and hospitality, offering upward mobility as well as the advantages of a stationary POS system that delivers greater efficiency and speed. Since its launch in Q4 last year, the MT-4008W has been well received and has been receiving positive feedback from Posiflex worldwide partners especially in the US and European markets.
"The MT-4008W presents a unique solution that combines the benefits of both mobile and stationary POS in a single hybrid terminal. It maximizes in-store POS hardware investment while at the same time delivering great flexibility in whichever application the retailer chooses," Andreas Wey, CEO QUAD GmbH.
Owen Chen, President and CEO at Posiflex Technology, Inc said: “We are delighted to have won a Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015, which recognizes the very best in design quality and reinforces the importance that we place on in-house design and manufacturing at the highest level. The MT-4008W redefines mobility, providing a truly mobile solution, that is easy and light to use but which also has all the advantages of a stationary POS system.”
Posiflex will receive the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015 at an awards ceremony in Essen, Germany on June 29th.
