Fujitsu reduces TCO for Australian retailers with new retail system terminal

Designed for easy remote management to reduce the total cost of ownership for retailers, the TeamPoS 2000 M is the first point-of-sale system available across the entire the retail industry to incorporate the Intel Pentium M processor.

Fujitsu made the announcement at the National Retail Federation's 93rd Annual Convention & Expo in New York City last week.

"The idea in reducing cost is not just lowering the price - it's about reducing cost over the lifetime of the retailer's IT assets and managing assets intelligently," said Tom Juliano, senior vice president of marketing for Fujitsu Transaction Solutions.

The latest model in Fujitsu's TeamPoS line of point-of-sale terminals, the TeamPoS 2000 M is based on the Intel Pentium M processor and associated chipsets. This enables systems to be configured with fewer components to support such features as dual independent displays, typically used for marketing to store customers. As a result, it offers increased performance, greater reliability and can be economically upgraded to help retailers drive down costs and improve customer satisfaction.

"Systems based on Pentium M technology will be backward-compatible while, at the same time, offering retailers an expanded means of growing their POS capabilities. They use fewer components, less power and run cooler, providing a longer, more reliable operating life in the demanding retail environment," said David Wells, Retail Product Manager for Fujitsu Australia Limited. "Coupled with remote management features, the TeamPoS 2000 M protects retailers' investments far into the future."

"The Pentium M processor is a low-power solution that delivers exceptional performance for embedded applications such as POS." said Ton Steenman, general manager, Embedded Intel Architecture division.

"POS systems based on Intel Pentium M technology provide retailers with exciting new opportunities that can enhance the in-store shopping experience with rich graphic displays and faster check-out."

Complementing the TeamPoS 2000 M, Fujitsu's optional new TeamCOMBO-type controller features up to four powered USB ports to accommodate the retail market's rapidly growing preference for USB peripheral devices.
