We are excited to offer iPad POS a great commercial-grade solution at an attractive price.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) January 03, 2013
When the Apple iPad® was released April 3, 2010, many criticized the device as a “toy” or a big iPod Touch®. Fast-forward to present day, iPad POS is now a term and is at the center of the tablet POS industry. Once again, Apple® has helped create a niche industry; iPad Point-of-Sale Stands & Mounts as supported hardware. Tens of thousands of businesses, small and large, are using iPad®-based systems as their conductor of commerce.
iTab™Enclosures, a subsidiary of NRvation Inc., Founders Nick Schycker and Roberto Ramon remember sitting at a local restaurant who was using an iPad for Point-of-sale. They noticed the waiter was having a hard time adjusting the iPad so he could see the screen and the credit card reader kept coming loose. He asked the waiter about the P.O.S. and the waiter said the iPad itself worked great for transactions, but adjusting the mount and getting accurate credit card swipes was another story. The two instantly started discussing ways they could solve the problem. With Mr. Ramón’s extensive background and family roots in manufacturing all over Latin America, they knew together they could create the perfect solution.
“We narrowed our focus to what the industry was using as the primary credit card reader, which ended up being the Magtek® iDynamo® car swipe. We wanted to build an iPad Enclosure that totally secured iPads and the card reader inside. By doing this, we would create something that could be placed in any retail environment without the worry of tampering.” – Nick Schycker states.
The first prototype samples were hand-carried and presented at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago, Illinois. The overwhelming positive response to the prototype enclosure was very exciting for the two founders.
“After months of testing and engineering, the final product exceeded our expectations. We are proud to announce and release the product.”
The iTab™Pro POS features:
- Stand that rotates on a ball-joint 180 degrees
- Allows for 70 Degrees of tilt in any direction.
- Slim and ultra-strong polycarbonate plastic enclosure
- Built-in Kensington CSA lock to secure stand to counter(s)
- Commercial-grade card swipe housing that secures the Magtek iDynamo®
- 4 large inlets on rear of enclosure for cooling of iPad™
- Option to have Home Button exposed or blocked
- Textured surface to avoid scratches or damage
- 4 security screws and 2 interlocks to secure iPad inside
With a retail price starting at $199, depending on the stand you select for mounting, it’s not going to strain the pockets of businesses. “We accomplished a low starting price by offering different stands that you choose to mount to the enclosure, that best suits your needs and/or budget” – Roberto Ramon states.
iTab Enclosures™ is already partnered with several iPad Point-of-Sale Apps to provide their customers with a product the industry has been calling for. We are taking orders now!
