Ease of Use – Powerful exacqVision GUI

Ease-of-use through an intuitive and consistent user interface was one of the key design requirements of exacqVision from the beginning.  A great deal of research and effort has been put into refining our user interface, which enables even a non-technical person to harness the power of the exacqVision system.

NACStech: Innovations in POS and Security

NACStech 2006At this week’s NACStech show in Nashville, technology innovations designed to streamline how the convenience and petroleum industry operates were the main focus. Of key interest were the latest in POS technology and the integration of POS with all aspects of the convenience store operation, including digital video security systems.

In the closing session, Dan Hopping, CEO of Next Retail Group said that new technology payment methods, including RFID availability, windshield transmitters, key fobs, cell phones and iButton, combined with new security technologies, including eye scanners, fingerprint readers, face, voice and signature recognition, will usher in greater profitability. exacqVision is ahead of this curve, with open integration with a wide variety of POS and transactional products, as well as integration with access control, video analytic and and biometric products. exacqVision systems range from IP camera-only solutions to hybrid performance systems.

ExacqVision, Linux and Retail Loss Prevention & POS

Retail Systems ExpoWe attended the Retail Systems show in Chicago yesterday. There was a big focus on Linux in Retail. Data Centers, POS, and video loss prevention products are migrating towards Linux. This is an ideal fit for exacqVision, as we designed it to be cross-platform: both Linux and Windows. ExacqVision merges completely with POS systems, and it ties into video analysis products for loss prevention, asset tracking, people counting. The addition of IP cameras and remote viewing and storage make exacqVision a good choice for retail loss prevention applications.

An end-of-day report from the show organizers entitled “Open Source Gaining Ground in Retail POS” discussed Sunday’s Linux in Retail Symposium, where panelists said more retailers are switching to Linux as an IT platform based upon its added flexibility and stability capabilities.

Linux is helping retailers innovate and upgrade their IT infrastructures, while cutting TCO and improving security. With Linux, retailers gain the power and flexibility to choose best-of-breed systems for each area of the retail infrastructure – from POS machines to headquarter servers to digital video security systems such as exacqVision. Linux helps keep POS systems from crashing as often, which keeps customers happy and lines moving.

According to IHL Consulting Group, Linux saw growth in POS last year, with a market share that was double what it was in 2004.
