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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
