EuroShop 2011: AURES unveils Odyssé II by POSLIGNE® - a new generation of EPoS terminals featuring even better performance and new, up-to-the-minute colour schemes!
The latest-generation Odyssé 2 by POSLIGNE® terminals combine cutting-edge EPoS and Retail technologies, including integrated RAID and the HSD utility, an AURES innovation.
Odyssé 2 also features a fresh set of colour clips in a whole new range of up-to-the-minute shades: Mocha, Silver, Cassis, Iris and Kiwi - echoing retail and service outlets' style, visual identity and brand image - right the way through to the till point.
- The HSD Exclusive ("Hardware Status Display") embedded utility provides an instant display of all the key system data - in a choice of three languages. This can be requested by users via the terminal's touch screen, giving processor and fan temperatures, power supply readings, HDD status, network interface status, and so on.
This feature also allows the key data from an entire batch of terminals to be centralised, automatically sending information via e-mail (for instance, to a store chain's Information Systems Manager or Hotline), for as many units and locations as required.
- The new version of the Odyssé 2 integrated POS terminal is equipped with an even more powerful motherboard (featuring an INTEL Dual-Core E5300 processor), RAID 1 where a second hard drive is fitted, and hot swap capabilities (with the drives located in an easy-access rack to the rear of the machine). The EPoS terminal is the perfect tool for handling even the most demanding point-of-sale till and management applications.
- Odyssé 2 also offers excellent ergonomics and easy access to its hard drives and fan system. Fully optimised and located to the rear of the terminal (reached via a small hatch behind the touchscreen), the fan can be easily accessed requiring no tools - thus offering extreme ease of maintenance and genuine user-friendliness for till staff.
