USA, February 20, 2001

The Fujitsu TeamPoS(r) 2000 this week became the first retail point-of-sale terminal to earn Microsoft WHQL certification, passing tests for both Microsoft Windows(r) 2000 Professional and Microsoft Windows NT(r) Workstation 4.0.

Certification was granted by Microsoft Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL), which conducted a rigorous battery of tests to ensure the terminal's adherence to Microsoft's stringent quality standards. TeamPoS 2000 is a versatile, in-store point-of-sale system that adapts easily for POS, customer kiosks, multimedia displays or management terminals.

Passing the tests allows Fujitsu TeamPoS 2000 to display the "Designed for Windows 2000 Professional and Windows NT Workstation 4.0" logos and demonstrates Fujitsu's commitment to open retail platforms. The logo certification facilitates application hosting on the TeamPoS 2000 platform. The WHQL certification also means the Fujitsu TeamPoS 2000 may be integrated into solutions by resellers seeking the valuable and highly marketable "Designed for Windows" logo for their overall systems.

"Microsoft certification assures our customers that Fujitsu TeamPoS 2000 operates seamlessly in a Windows environment," said Larry Fandel, director of retail product management for Fujitsu-ICL. "What's more, since this point-of-sale solution uses the ubiquitous Windows operating system, clients have access to a range of expertise and resources to develop applications that fit their needs."

Developed by Fujitsu, the TeamPoS 2000 is a versatile, innovative in-store retailing solution that can help reduce costs, improve customer service, support advanced loyalty schemes and simplify how retailers manage, expand and maintain their in-store technologies.

The TeamPoS 2000 is powerful enough to run the latest point-of-sale and electronic marketing applications, enabling retailers to implement creative and far-reaching consumer programs. This adaptability transforms ordinary point-of-sale terminals into multi-purpose points of service, including multimedia customer-activated kiosks. It advances in-store efforts to up-sell and cross-sell and can be used to offer interactive advertising, promotions and on-line shopping at the point of sale.

TeamPoS 2000 is designed to be easy to maintain, expand and upgrade - even by in-store staff members - to protect the retailer's investment. Its one-of-a-kind, open-systems design supports the richest POS applications for both fat and thin-client architectures. Additional performance features include substantial memory and disk capabilities, plus on-board, high-speed LAN connectivity to help manage multimedia, CRM and e-business applications.
