Distributor Dove Electronics has signed as this country’s sole distributor for Taiwanese point of sale manufacturer AdvanPOS, with plans to establish a broad channel for the vendor.
AdvanPOS designs and manufacturers point of sale (POS) systems that combine POS systems and PC technologies, with Dove set to distribute its range of all-in-one touchscreen models.
Dove’s Auckland branch manager Rick Jansen says it will promote the units to the company’s general IT resellers, as well as POS specialists.
“There are a lot of businesses out there, such as dairies and small shops, that our IT resellers already deal with. We want them to realise that while there is an opportunity to sell [these businesses] a PC for the back office, they can now target the front counter with AdvanPOS.”
He says the units can replace existing cash registers if retailers want registers with more automation and ease of use.
Dove took on the all-in-one units because it was already distributing POS accessories such as cash drawers and barcode scanners.
“We think this is a growth area even though it is a competitive space. There is a lot of opportunity out there that our resellers aren’t benefiting from.”
The POS units are on display at Dove’s showroom in Auckland, if resellers want to assess them.
