  • Unlike a touchscreen, the keypad has very good haptic feedback which guarantees high operating accuracy and reduces errors, especially when entering numerical data at the point of sale.

The keyboard’s ability to be programmed makes your work more intuitive whether you are using standard, industry specific or individual software. Because of its slim design, the external number pad can be placed comfortably at any workspace.

  • The programmability allows users to customize the professional keyboard exactly to their needs, to make every day work in retail easier and faster.

    At the point of sale the custom keyboard is therefore used in pharmacies, gas stations, grocery markets and parking garages. Because of its versatility, the POS keyboard is very popular outside of the retail world as well. In towers of German airports, it has been reliably supporting air traffic controllers in their daily work for years. The professional keyboard also ensures that everything runs smoothly in radio stations and for DJs.

    Due to modular extensions, like magnetic card readers, displays, fingerprint readers, smart card readers and more, the possible use cases are almost limitless. A custom keyboard layout, including keyboard labeling, colored keys and different key sizes, ensures intuitive and ergonomic operation.
