Computerised p-o-s can both increase day-to-day efficiency and prove an effective management and marketing tool for developing long-term strategy.

This summer specialist company InfoClean launched two additional products. The InfoClean Value system illustrates a trend towards affordable and user-friendly systems. It uses industry standard hardware, so if any part needs replacing this is both easier and cheaper. The software offers the essential functions, including lost ticket facility and management reports, and can be upgraded at any time.

InfoTouch is a compact, Windows-based touch-screen system with a comprehensive range of functions and the ability to carry out transactions simultaneously—a wait-for-card authorisation need not stop staff serving other customers. Report functions are flexible and can be customised by the user. The touchscreen is simple to use.
