Lolly and Linx launch Windows-based ePOS tablet for retailers

Retail and hospitality technology specialist Lolly, formerly Consolis, has partnered with Linx to launch a new mobile ePOS solution based on the Linx Windows ruggedised tablet.

Aimed at independent retailers, the tablet provides enterprise-level ePOS technology at an entry-level price point.

“We see a high potential for projects centred around bringing tablets into different retail environments with the aim of improving the customer experience and the process of ordering and pay,” said Nicolo Lettieri, Linx product manager (Exertis). “This trend used to be hindered by overly expensive tablets and the lack of simple ready-to-use mobile payment solutions. Our partnership with Lolly will fill this gap by providing a high-technology solution at an affordable price, in line with Linx tradition, supported by a well-designed ePOS software, ready to use straight out of the box. This winning combination provides retailers with a viable and budget-friendly option to modernise and simplify their business.”

Lolly’s new ePOS solution allows store associates to use Linx windows ruggedised tablets to take orders, payments or issue refunds to customers anywhere on the shop floor. They can also use the tablets to drive cross- and up-sell opportunities by showing videos of additional products or optional features. In addition, the solution can be integrated with a card machine to accelerate transactions.

“We want to bridge the gap between the smartphone and counter-top POS software,” said Peter Moore, CEO of Lolly. “The tablet will allow staff to move around the store or pop-up shop, engage directly with customers and take payments or process returns, cutting down on waiting times and making the in-store experience more personal. The ruggedised nature of the tablet protects it from drops and spills – ensuring retailers don't have to invest in another piece of hardware.”
