“By now, we’ve learned the Japanese have found a number of creative ways to use the iPad. And today we can show you a new one: the iPad as the basis of a sophisticated, yet low-cost point of sale cash register system. Dubbed FLAVIUS, the system is actually being used by several business across Japan already,” Serkan Toto reports for CrunchGear.
“The way it works is that the iPad is the core of a system that also includes a special-purpose counter and a Wi-Fi router,” Toto reports. “The iPad can be used as both a cash register interface and as an ordering device. FLAVIUS maker Global Network service even integrated a reporting and attendance management system into the system.”
Toto reports, “For example, it’s possible for owners to check the revenues of their stores remotely (on the web) and in real-time.”
