In 2010 QUORiON will continue to follow its course in new product development. After a successful entry into the PC POS market segment in 2009, the company now intends to sell low cost cash registers. Next to the CR 30, the company will introduce the CR 20 cash register series. The CR 20 will come with a complete new design and housing.
Moreover, it will feature 32-bit PC architecture, a fast printer, and data memory of up to 2 Mb. “We wanted to provide our customers with an entry-level cash register model that did not require them to sacrifice speed and features,” Mr. Patrick Grueschow, VP of Marketing and IT, explains. “Given today’s economic climate our dealer network must have a product that allows them to go head-to-head against competition from the Far East. We designed the CR 20 precisely for this purpose. Despite the CR 20’s small size and low cost, our clients will nevertheless have a cash register in their inventory that delivers true business benefits to their customers.”
New POS Software for Low Cost Cash Registers
The CR 20 will come with the QMP Light Edition software. “We chose to equip the CR 20 with a toned down version of the QMP POS software to facilitate quick implementation at the customer side. There will be no learning curve, because partners are already very familiar with our QMP software,” Mr. Matthias Hesse, Product Manager, adds. “We also wanted to keep things as simple as possible, so that even new customers can quickly familiarize themselves with the cash register. Nevertheless, the software will deliver all the required and common features you need in this segment. “
Furthermore, the CR 20 will not only derive its performance from the 32-bit architecture and fast printer, but also from its memory configuration. “The data storage allows us to pack information and transactional data on a SD-Card. This leaves more room to store software features in our programming memory. Having both of these storage capacities separate really helps us in packing in as many features as we can,” Mr. Hesse asserts. No doubt the end user will appreciate this as well.
The company intends to introduce the CR 20 early in 2010 as a low cost cash register. The attractive price and small size will undeniably also generate interest with importers in fiscal countries, where owning a cash register is a matter of law as opposed to necessity.
