  • Tablets and handheld devices access the Point of Sale software using a Remote Desktop client.
    This means most newer Windows, Android, iOS, etc. devices are compatible.

  • Any device that can run a Remote Desktop client compatible with Microsoft's Remote Desktop Services can technically work, but you need to make sure the hardware has decent performance.

  • We recommend a minimum screen resolution of 800x600 and a minimum screen size of 6 inches.

  • We recommend mainstream devices like the iPad mini and Kindle Fire HD because of the availability of rugged cases and spare parts.

  • The configuration of the device, Remote Desktop client and the Remote Desktop server is the responsibility of the customers network professional. We can point them in the right direction but we don't sell or manufacture the devices or Demote Desktop client software and can't offer specific instructions for each device. The manufacturers of the devices and Remote Desktop client software are better suited to answer questions about their setup. 

    The Remote Desktop users should be configured in the same manner as with a desktop computer. Software Installation

  • Make sure that the device and Remote Desktop client software are configured so that they don't log off or go on stand by while in use. You'll want to provide many charging stations to be sure the devices don't run low on battery power.

  • The tablets can perform almost any function that a PC can, except for swiping a credit card. You can, however, manually enter the credit card.

  • Printing is handled just like any other Remote Desktop Client. Printer Setup
