Boca Raton, FL, July 18, 2014 --(PR.com)-- QUORiON, the German POS system manufacturer, plans its USA market entry at the 2014 Retail Now show in Orlando come August. Over the past 15 years QUORiON quietly established a distribution network in over 70 countries. During this time the USA has remained as one of the few remaining frontiers for the company. “Our international experience has allowed our product line to evolve substantially from our modest beginnings. We started with one electronic cash register model and now offer an extensive range of Point of Sale products - everything from small, fiscal cash registers to modern touch screen POS systems and apps,” Mr. Patrick Grueschow, QUORiON VP of Marketing explains. “We have faced tough competition from Asian and North American vendors in virtually every country, which drove our product development. The remaining hurdle for the USA had been the credit card processing, which differs substantially in the USA compared to Germany, for instance. Now that we have Monetra on-board we have the flexibility to address processing needs in almost any country of the world. As a result, we feel confident to undertake this new US venture.”
The Monetra® payment processing software securely links point of sale directly to all major transaction processors for performing credit card transactions. Merchants will be able to either run the software locally or take advantage of hosted Monetra® gateways certain processors such as SecureNet offer. With the Monetra® integration and a processing agreement with SecureNet, QUORiON has found a secure method to implement credit card transactions into its embedded POS systems without any additional software installation on its POS terminals. QUORiON’s proprietary OS and Monetra’s® end-to-end encryption provides a secure processing platform. “As opposed to embedded systems, PC based POS systems tend to suffer from a variety of security problems such as malware, data theft, software vulnerabilities, and what have you,” Mr. Matthias Hesse, QUORiON’s head of R&D asserts. “Embedded systems have the upper hand here. Add Monetra® and the POS system never actually handles any payment information,” Mr. Hesse declares.
The new QTouch 8 and Android POS system will unquestionably present the highlight at QUORiON’s RSPA booth. Both product lines will enjoy their international launch this fall. The QTouch 8 shines as a cross over model between the mobile and traditional POS worlds. With its 9 inch touch screen display, integrated printer, and small foot print, it speaks to small businesses who want a traditional touch screen POS system. Conversely, QUORiON’s Android POS system caters to those, who wish to adopt mobile POS technology on small screens or 10 inch tablets.
Moreover, US vendors will surely have a close look at the QTouch 10 – the all-in-one POS system QUORiON launched in 2012. “The QTouch 10 is one of my favorites. We tried to make the owner’s life as simple as possible. Integrated POS peripherals means, no set up, no compatibility issues, and everything from one vendor,” Mr. Grueschow explains.
All of QUORiON’s embedded POS systems come with the QMP POS software as standard. Even the Android POS system runs it. “We ported our POS software with all its 20 years of experience directly onto the Android platform. We did not have to reinvent the whole thing and can offer the full feature set. Even now, many POS apps are still struggling along with minimal POS features,” Mr. Hesse states. “That’s a problem we don’t have.” QMP allows QUORiON POS systems to function in various business sectors such as retail, food service, bakeries, dry cleaning, or salons. A selection of customization options and system parameters allows end users to program an exact fit to their business.
The company even intends to showcase its PC POS system for those that prefer to stay with PC technology. All in all, the company seems to offer something for everyone.
In case you make the track to the 2014 Retail Now show in Orlando, you will find QUORiON at booth number 930.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening.

The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It doe...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
