According to IHL's Mobile
POS Shipments report, overall iPad POS represents 55.9% of total
mobile POS installations in retail and hospitality, with hospitality
alone being around 21%. Many restaurant operators are gravitating away
from traditional, fixed terminals towards more mobile systems to take
advantage of inherent benefits such as lower cost of ownership, ease of
use, enhanced customer service and space-saving design. The Lavu system
is a full-featured hospitality management system that combines a sleek
and user-friendly interface with the advanced functionality required to
run an efficient restaurant, bar café or hotel operation. Epson's
OmniLink will serve as the peripheral device hub for the Lavu iPad POS
platform enabling seamless and reliable connection and management of
required POS peripherals, including credit card readers, barcode
scanners, scales, and customer displays. With OmniLink, existing or new
POS peripherals can be easily added - protecting legacy investments
without diminishing the sleek Lavu iPad POS factor.
"We are very excited about the versatile design and integrated computing
power OmniLink delivers," commented Andy Lim, Co-Founder and CEO of
Lavu. "We also value Epson's overall reputation for bringing the most
reliable products to hospitality. It's really an ideal partnership for
us, our dealers and our operators."
"We like to partner with innovative companies that think outside the
traditional POS box," commented Tom Kettell, Manager of North American
Sales for Epson's Business Systems Division. "Lavu is the first to
integrate our smart device into its iPad POS for hospitality, utilizing
all the functionality it was built to deliver. Operators of all sizes
considering a move to mobility should make sure this iPad POS is on
their short list."
