The future at the point-of-sale belongs to multitouch systems like polytouch from Pyramid. The polytouch works like an oversized iPhone. The apps are controlled by touch and hand movement – with up to 10 points of contact possible at the same time! Several users can therefore use the polytouch simultaneously and discover new products easily and intuitively.
Corporate Karma has developed the demo application „eConcierge“ for the hotel and catering business. With the polytouch installed in a hotel lobby, customers can check in and out using the built-in credit card reader and bar code scanner, find their room or the nearest elevator, order room service, make a reservation for a breakfast table, ask for a wake-up call or find out about cultural or gastronomical offerings all over town – around the clock!
You can see the eConcierge app in action in this official product video (at 2:25 minutes).
polytouch is suited to use in a wide range of industries and for diverse applications. Thanks to its compact design and integrated computer, only a plug socket is needed to connect it. Peripherals such as voucher printers, RFID scanners and cameras can be integrated to form a compact system – the possibilities are endless!
