HandiPOS attracts more than just bouquets

E-commerce developer Internet Solutions Centre yesterday participated in the 2000 Compuware-AIIA Software Showcase, exhibiting its HandiPOS product.

Designed in partnership with Sydney Flower Markets to overcome the new tax reforms, HandiPOS is a handheld POS device that allows stall owners to electronically print and store receipts and tax records. The system currently uses Palm Pilot handheld devices, but is also suitable for other PDA devices and mobile operating systems.

"It's tax invoices on the fly," said Terry Ryan, account manager for Internet Solutions Centre.

According to Ryan, by using the system, stall owners can keep a record of their daily transactions electronically using a Palmtop device. Later, the data can be synchronised with the user's office accounting system.

Ryan said the system, which was developed early this year, is currently being tested by several stall owners at the Sydney Flower Markets and is expected to be rolled out with most stall holders in the next few months.

"We expect 600 devices to be deployed. People don't really have a choice," he said. "The GST was a catalyst in terms of the Sydney Flower Markets program because of the need to have a GST receipt."

However, the system is not limited to accounting needs. The system can be developed and customised across industries, he said. "The idea is to build it to specifications for the customer."

"We expect 50 to 60 per cent of what we're doing in this first program will be reusable in most other industries and in most cases a lot more," he added.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
