Product Description
The IBM SurePOS* 500 series is a portfolio of sophisticated, sleek point-of-sale (POS) systems. It has an innovative touchscreen interface that is designed to enable rapid, convenient transactions, while withstanding the harsh food service and retail environments. IBM offers the SurePOS 500 systems in 12-inch and 15-inch versions. To better accommodate the needs of clients in the specialty, gas and convenience market segments, and to further extend the IBM retail product family, IBM also offers a 17-inch model. This larger screen provides an expanded viewing area. It allows you to see more information simultaneously in real time, such as gas pump icons or consumer facing kiosks, along with standard POS applications used in your store.
