Cornell-Mayo Associates (CMA) recently introduced Omniexpress, a new POS solution designed to provide mobile POS in a pocket-sized handheld device. Omniexpress combines CMA’s Omnistore POS application, used by numerous Tier 1 retailers nationwide, with Apple’s iPod touch.
The lightweight mobile computing solution includes a scanner and magnetic stripe reader (MSR) – designed to provide a more user-friendly, familiar and engaging interface. The device can accept credit and gift cards and wirelessly print or email receipts, offering POS capabilities similar to registers.
As a result of CMA’s software design, the company offers the first POS software that is natively portable to all major platforms today: Windows, Linux and Apple. “Omniexpress is a game changer in mobile POS, and we’re already seeing strong demand from our customers,” said Gene Cornell, President, Cornell-Mayo Associates. “Retailers can now offer their customers the most innovative and convenient in-store shopping experience.” Cornell said the technology could be used for inventory management in addition to the customer-facing capabilities.
The Omniexpress offering is currently being piloted in two major specialty retail chains.
