|A Small Footprint for a Small Price|
|With one of the smallest foot prints in its class and a competitive price point, the WILLPOS B10 is ideal for new installations and updating old electronic cash register systems or POS systems. Toshiba has designed the WILLPOS B10 for use in grocery, specialty, mass merchandiser, and hospitality environments using high quality ruggedized components.|
|Total Cost of Ownership|
Toshiba designs hardware specifically to withstand the rigors of the retail environment. The WILLPOS B10 is designed to provide a stable platform that can operate for 5 or more years at 24 hours, 7 days a week. During the life cycle of the product replacement parts will be available, so in the event of a component failure, the parts can easily be ordered and replaced for years after the life cycle.
Typical consumer grade computer components, adapted for sale in a retail environment, have a useable life of 18 to 36 months (assuming only 8 to 9 hours of use per day), and components get changed frequently, so when components fail they can be hard or impossible to repair. This lack of long term support means a complete system replacement may be necessary every 2 to 4 years.
The WILLPOS B-10 will substantially reduce total costs over the entire serviceable life of the product comparatively.
|The design of the WILLPOS B-10 allows great flexibility in retail space design. The ability to mount horizontally or vertically allows the WILLPOS B-10 to be positioned on top of a cash drawer or under the counter. Measuring in at 280mm x 285mm x 95 mm the WILLPOS-B10 will fit in most existing retail designs.|
|If a component of the WILLPOS B-10 fails, Toshiba’s tool-less product design ensures quick access to internal components. This helps to reduce service call time and keep the retail location running at full capacity. From the unique front loading hard disk drive to the safety mechanism preventing access to components while power is supplied, the WILLPOS B-10 is designed for quick and safe servicing.|
|Scalability and Legacy Support|
Along with the WILLPOS B-10, Toshiba has also designed the TRST-A00, PKBST-52, and the DRW-B10 to provide a complete low cost solution for many retail locations. Additionally, with up to 6 COM ports and 4 USB ports (2 normal and 2 powered) available, many other Toshiba legacy peripherals and third party peripherals can be attached to meet any location’s needs.
Toshiba has developed drivers for the WILLPOS B-10 to support many operating languages including Windows XP Professional (SP3), WEPOS Version 1.1, POSReady 2009, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11, MS-DOS 6.22, OPOS, Java POS for Windows, and Java POS for Linux. This allows the transition from existing hardware to the WILLPOS-B10 without needing to purchase or program a new retail software package that supports a specific operating system.
|Toshiba has carefully balanced the processing power of the WILLPOS B-10 to provide high performance with low energy usage. An added benefit of low energy use is a reduction in unnecessary heat that can drastically reduce the life span of computer components.|
