MILPITAS, Calif. — June 07, 2016 — Elo, a global supplier of touchscreen solutions, today announced Magstar Inc., provider of enterprise resource planning (ERP) retail software, has certified Elo’s X-Series and E-Series touchscreen computers for use with its award-winning retail software suite. This certification delivers the combined benefit of decades of development and innovation for retail point of sale (POS) software and hardware from Magstar and Elo. 

Operating a successful retail business today demands a sophisticated technology solution able to support multiple in-store digital touchpoints with functionality such as self-serve payment, loyalty program management, product scanners and powerful analytics. Magstar’s certification of Elo touchscreen computers ensures retailers benefit from Elo’s flexible modular design, convenient servicability, long life cycle, maintenance and support combined with the backend software needed for better business efficiencies and seamless omnichannel experiences.

The flexibility of the Elo hardware platform allows partners and customers to choose their operating system.  Magstar operates on Linux, a supported option for Elo’s certified E- and X-Series touch computers:

  • Elo X-Series – an enterprise-grade POS known for flexible configuration options, including customer-facing touchscreens, and the ability to meet the diverse needs of a wide variety of retailers; and
  • Elo E-Series – a stylish and affordable retail-hardened POS computer with a small footprint.

“Elo continues to  enable in-store innovation with a robust portfolio of interactive touchscreen displays and computers,” said Craig Witsoe, CEO of Elo. “Partners like Magstar rely on our quality and eye to future innovation to enhance the experience at the point of sale and through every fixed digital touchpoint in store.”
