Following the renowned IF Product Design Awards in late 2012, it is now the the turn of the prestigious Red Dot 2013 label to reward and recognize the innovative and outstanding design of sango, the latest point-of-sale terminal created and developed by the AURES Group, jointly with Bertrand MEDAS, designer, manager and founder of ID'S Design Agency .

The sango will be available starting in late April 2013.

"The juries of these Awards, all recognised leaders and experts in the world of international design, have praised our new EPOS for its purity of line, lightness, ease of use and great robustness," explained Patrick CATHALA, AURES Group CEO and founder.

"We have met the challenge of creating an "all-in-one" integrated touchscreen system where the screen would be suspended, as if weightless. This technical feat required a lot of thought and work, as well as the use of high-quality materials such as polycarbonate - and robust die-cast aluminium," he added.

"One product advantage that caught the attention of the voters is the space created under the touchscreen; this was developed in response to a number of our customers who become frustrated at the lack of space at the checkout desk when using a typical EPOS system".

With its design and colours, the sango terminal takes the revolution launched by AURES in 2005 with the Odysée EPOS to new heights - adding the final touch to the retailers' brand image and visual identity.

"These prestigious Design Awards once again demonstrate the fact that AURES is the most creative manufacturer on the EPOS market," concluded Mr. CATHALA.
