As a provider of card payment solutions, and created Europe’s first mid-range electronic cash register with fully integrated Chip and PIN payment.
Designed with licensed hospitality and small and medium sized retailers in mind, the Sharp ERA421 and ERA411 all-in-one cash register and payment solutions also have the option of a portable card terminal for use behind a bar or till point. The ERA411 has a traditional key button facia, while the ERA421 has a pre-programmed splash- and dust-resistant flat keyboard of the sort favoured by bars and restaurants.
While integrated solutions have been available before, the ERA411 and ERA421 are claimed to be the first to combine the convenience and greater reliability they offer with simple operation and an affordable price tag.
Chip & PIN Solutions managing director David Maisey said: “The launch of this new integrated cash register will have a huge impact on small- to medium-sized businesses. The demand for the product is there but until now integrated Chip and PIN terminals have only been available for large businesses with sophisticated EPOS systems such as large restaurant chains and supermarkets.”
