Box Technologies launches the elegant powerful Cielo series of EPoS Terminals

Box Technologies, the UK’s leading provider of customer interface technology solutions is delighted to announce the launch of the Cielo range of high-end EPoS terminals specifically designed to combine high performance with aesthetically pleasing looks aimed squarely at the fashion, pharmacy, hospitality and specialty retail sectors.

Cielio is a beautiful and powerful EPoS terminal endowed with an ultra-slim display, sleek chassis and small footprint design. Its bezel free design gives a tablet style look and combined with its smooth lines and elegant appearance, Cielo is ideal for high-end retail, fashion and specialty stores.

Cielo is equally at home dealing with more mission critical applications. Cleanliness at the point of sale within a pharmacy or hospitality environment, for example, is essential and Cielo provides design features that address these important requirements. The Cielo boasts a vent-free frame which along with its bezel free construction ensures a cleaner, morehygienic terminal. This provides the additional benefit of reducing ingress of liquid, dust or food, which can have a detrimental effect on the lifespan of the touch screen.

Cielo is available in a choice of charcoal or white; whilst charcoal might find itself in a designer style operation, the latter is ideal in a pharmacy environment where any accumulation of dirt is easily visible enabling it to be wiped clean and kept clear of germs.

There are two models. Besides the Cielo, the Cielo-i is the high performance version for use in environments where transactions may be more complex and require a more system hungry software package. This PoS terminal can be supplied with either an i3 or i5 core bringing  prodigious amounts of computing power.

Operationally, Cielo boast a bright image display which is backlit for ease of use. It is economic in its power consumption and has a tough but light aluminium chassis with a compact footprint that is perfect for point of service areas where space is at a premium.

Of its launch, Richard Elmes, Marketing Manager at Box Technologies, remarked, “The introduction of Cielo addresses a need within the retail , pharmacy and hospitality sectors for a point of sale terminal that provides both performance and stunning good looks. Its tablet style lines bring the point of sale environment up to date whilst its design practicalities ensure that it is easy to keep clean with fewer moving parts for longer life and low total cost of ownership. Cielo shows the beauty can be combined with practicality”.

For ISVs and Value Added Resellers, Box Technologies is planning to run a series of open days of the entire range of new EPoS systems including the Cielo and Cielo-i in Thame starting on Wednesday October 10th.

Box Technologies signs agreement to become Official Digital Signage Partner for the Retail Fraud ‘On the Road’ 2012 and Retail Fraud 2013 events

Box Technologies to deploy the latest in digital signage technology at leading European retail fraud events run by Retail Knowledge

Oxfordshire, September 17th 2012: Box Technologies, the UK’s leading provider of customer interface technology solutions, today announced that it had signed an agreement with Retail Knowledge to become its official digital signage partner and event sponsor for the forthcoming Retail Fraud on the Road and Retail Fraud events.

Celebrating their 10th anniversary next year, these two highly influential events bring together key retailers from over 80% of the UK’s top 250 retail organisations. Designed and managed by Retail Knowledge, the organisation also produces the Retail Fraud.Com e-News casts which are delivered to over 79,000 UK based retail personnel.

As a sponsor and signage partner, Box Technologies will bring the latest in digital signage to the two events. Conference information, directions and timetabling are all areas where technology can assist speakers, delegates and other attendees to find their way around and make best use of their time. It also showcases the technology and provides good background information to support Box Technologies’ participation within the conference programme. Additionally, in retail master class studio sessions taking place during both events, Box Technologies will update the audience on how the integration of technology in the retail space can pro-actively enhance loss prevention implementations and combat the ever growing threats of customer and employee theft.

In the wider context of the event, digital signage is fast becoming an essential ingredient of the multi-channel culture of today’s in-store retail operations. It can improve the shopping experience, open new revenue streams and most importantly, engender loyalty from an ever more fickle buying public.

Speaking of the announcement, Paul Bessant, Managing Director, Retail Knowledge Ltd, said, “We are delighted to have Box Technologies as our Digital Signage Partner. As renowned experts in this field with a track record of excellence in solution architecture and installation, we will be hearing the very best of what is available to the retailer both in terms of improving the shopping experience whilst minimizing the risk of fraudulent activity.

For Box Technologies, Russell Willcox, Chairman, said, “We are pleased to be in a position to sponsor and support the Retail Fraud event in this close way. Retail Knowledge events provide the leading forum for those managing the very real threat of fraud within the retail industry. Both online and high street retailers welcome this venue to meet and discuss best practice and react to the latest trends and threats. Our knowledge and experience of making the best use of digital signage techniques gives us a unique understanding of the advantages for the retailer in terms of the customer experience, whilst understanding the potential risks and how to best minimize them.”

Service or Solution?

How should Box Technologies best represent its increased focus as a solution provider to the market place? What do we mean by a “solution”? What does our market place understand by a solution and does it matter how we communicate our offerings?

Over the years, Box Technologies has offered leading edge business products and more recently, solutions. We have always conducted business by ensuring the customer interface is king; the technology Box Technologies incorporates within its solutions, offers the client the quickest and best way of gaining and maintaining business advantage. For a project, the key to success is covering all the angles from design to deployment. But the solution doesn’t end there: it is precisely in the post-project honeymoon that a responsible and professional organisation ensures the beat goes on.

Box Technologies believes in regular post-deployment reviews to ensure the solution is delivering the benefits expected. Post-deployment meetings are also encouraged in which customer testimonials may be discussed as well since if a customer is pleased with the outcome of his or her decision to proceed with a Box Technologies’ solution, we encourage him to tell others.

We see the business solution as an discrete project, albeit a multi-faceted one. But Service from Box Technologies is the overarching umbrella that embraces everything we do from selling a humble receipt printer, to deploying a customer concept store across a large retail estate. It means the customer is always considered first and the solution is maintained to the leak of expectation. That is why people buy from Box and return.
