Innovate your PoS, kiosk and vending systems for a brand new customer experience

Embedded at the Point-of-Sale

Embedded in your success!

PoS, kiosk and vending systems are a fast-growing market that continues to innovate due to the demand for increasingly user-friendly interfaces and more and more cashless payment options. Applications range from small, mobile card readers and payment systems, to fully equipped information terminals, ticketing systems and complex PoS stations, which – if operating outdoors – must provide 24/7 service in all weathers.

New challenges at the point-of-sale

Some ticketing and vending machines are not yet connected in such a way that they can be updated in real time via central server technologies – for instance, to choose the right train, or to adjust ticket prices to events such as football matches. 24/7 monitoring for predictive maintenance and customer assistance systems are also not yet implemented everywhere. A completely new development is the launch of eMobility charging stations, which integrate new operating and payment concepts such as paying by mobile phone.

Ready for the future with congatec!

Embedded computer boards and modules from congatec are the first choice for all current and future PoS projects. For applications with special requirements that cannot be met with standard, off-the-shelf computer technology, congatec also offers many options to modify the hardware and firmware. Everything is possible, from BIOS/UEFI adaptation and individual board assembly to complete platform development.

The performance spectrum ranges from energy-efficient ultra-low power ARM processor technology with passive cooling for simple car park vending machines and eMobility charging stations, to high-end x86 multicore systems for multiple 4k overhead PoS and video advertising displays with multi-touch and integrated payment systems. For all these tasks, congatec works closely together with customers to develop the solution that’s best for them.

High security inclusive

By providing numerous BIOS/UEFI security options and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) support, congatec enables customers to implement a high level of security that is optimized for their specific solution requirements.
