New level of compatibility between integrated point-of-sale terminals and scalable cash register software gives retail and hospitality operators more choices, easier checkout management

MILPITAS, Calif. – November 17, 2015 – Elo, a global supplier of touchscreen solutions, today announced pcAmerica, a Heartland Payment Systems company, has certified Elo’s X-Series all-in-one point-of-sale (POS) terminals for use with its Cash Register Express and Restaurant Pro Express. The software packages are fully interfaced with the Heartland Out-of-Scope and Heartland Secure™ solutions. Through this certification, Elo and pcAmerica are working together to offer a more customizable platform of versatile, trusted POS software and hardware solutions for restaurant and retail customers.  

A transformation is under way in retail and hospitality. Retailers and hospitality operators know that the POS is no longer a static, transactional place where the consumer and sales associate simply exchange payment for merchandise. Driven by empowered consumers, the POS is now a place where retailers must engage customers to build relationships and brand loyalty to keep them coming back. Elo and pcAmerica are at the forefront of this transformation, offering new ways to enhance the POS experience.

Elo’s X-Series all-in-one POS terminals bring style, flexibility and functionality to retail locations and restaurants. Its flexible configuration choices meet the diverse needs of a wide variety of venues, including retail and hospitality display units, customer loyalty systems and in-store kiosks. Its durable, compact form factor design means retailers of all sizes can easily integrate Elo terminals, even in small spaces.

“Elo is constantly reinventing the POS experience to deliver what retailers need to support today’s wide array of payment forms and engagement strategies,” said Craig Witsoe, CEO of Elo. “pcAmerica is a proven leader in software solutions for POS management in hospitality and retail, making them the perfect certification partner to help us better serve this market.”

pcAmerica’s Cash Register Express is the leading choice of chain retailers and independent retailers alike to improve the POS experience for both the sales associate and the customer. Its intuitive POS software platform includes the features retailers need the most; such as inventory tracking, credit card processing, cash management, customer loyalty, employee time clock tracking and labor scheduling; and a detailed reporting interface to help retailers make smarter business decisions. Restaurant Pro Express delivers fast operation, accurate order taking and detailed transaction reports, and is flexible enough to be used by small, independent restaurants as well as multi-location chains.

“Our mission is to provide cost-effective, easy-to-use, secure POS software that gives our retail and hospitality customers the tools they need to provide the best checkout experience possible,” said David Gosman, senior vice president of Heartland Commerce, Heartland. ”Certification between our award-winning software and Elo’s hardware provides our customers with greater flexibility and choice, so they can build the customized POS experience that keeps shoppers engaged, satisfied and returning to their physical locations.”
