Retailers all over the world rely on point-of-sale (POS) systems to increase productivity and ensure a seamless customer experience, and each retailer has a unique set of feature requirements for their system that ties to specific business goals. For example, a start-up running in a pop-up shop needs to maximize floor and counter space for product promotion and may only have a small corner slot available for a POS. On the other hand, an established brick and mortar may be more concerned with power management to reduce energy consumption and operating costs when evaluating POS options. Toshiba understands these varying requirements and has teamed with AMD to introduce their new Toshiba D10 POS system, a sleek and compact solution that delivers the right functionality at the right price for small businesses and fast-growing retailers.

Enter the AMD Embedded G-Series processor. With low-power, multi-display configurability and scalable features, the AMD Embedded G-Series processor can optimize energy usage and support innovative, small form factor designs as well as help reduce overall development costs for applications such as the Toshiba D10. 

 

“Starting a new business or making a strategic investment to support a fast-growing one is a decision any retailer should make very carefully. This is why Toshiba decided to bring the D10 system to market,” said Dr. Stephen K. Markham, Senior Vice President Global Strategy and Portfolio, Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions. “From our experience working with some of the world’s largest retailers, we’ve been able to identify the characteristics that are most important to help emerging retailers execute their business plans and make technology investment decisions aligned to their budgets and growth aspirations. And by partnering with AMD, we’ve been able to do just that. The future is very bright!”

 

The Toshiba D10 POS enables retailers to achieve brilliant commerce with a small-scale platform, supported by significant performance and easy installation and maintenance. The solution is targeted at Asia, EMEA and Latin American markets, and is an open platform with broad operating system (OS) support that can meet the functionality, style and versatility needs of today’s retail environments.
