MILPITAS, Calif. — June 30, 2016 — Elo, a global supplier of touchscreen solutions, today announced Retail Pro International, a global leader in retail software, has certified Elo’s X-Series and E-Series touchscreen models for use with its Retail Pro Prism and Retail Pro 9 retail management software. This certification delivers the combined benefit of point of sale (POS) platform technology solutions for retail with software capabilities critical for expansion and unified channel initiatives powered by a modular commercial-grade hardware portfolio.

“Elo and Retail Pro together deliver a connected, globally capable retail solution,” said Dave Murphy, director of software alliances and developer relations at Elo. “Elo’s global and configurable hardware platform simplifies our software partners’ ability to connect digital touch points in the physical store.”

Elo X- and E-Series are both available with Windows, Windows POS ready, or no operating system options.
