Flomio was able to take our SLN-POS-RDR and develop their first EASyPOS prototype in 2 short months!
What is an EASyPOS?
EASyPOS is an item level point of sale. A light weight terminal that connects wirelessly to the payment network to securely process transactions and unlock from products for consumers to take. EASyPOS is the first of it’s kind and though placing a POS on every item may seem impractical, it offers several advantages. For one the device is able to monitor it’s location with a high degree of accuracy, guiding shoppers directly to the products they seek and consistently delivering positive purchase experiences. Also, inventory accuracy is all but guaranteed so omnichannel commerce and other popular retail trends are supported. Finally, EASyPOS has lights and sound alerts to enable smart filtering and encourage impulse buys.
How do I use it?
Using the EASyPOS is —in fact— “easy”. Follow these steps to complete your purchase:
- Grab the product you want to purchase.
- Place your Contactless Payment credential on the surface of the contactless payment logo and wait for 4 LEDs to blink green. EASyPOS is now disarmed.
- Slide apart the magnetic halves and remove your from your purchase.
How is it built?
The EASyPOS was built by Flomio, an expert in mobile NFC device design. It operates at very low power while actively monitoring for payment engagements, remote notifications, tamper attacks, and location changes throughout the retail environment. Smaller than a deck of cards, the EASyPOS is a payments certifiable device leverages the hardened security and miniaturization advances of NXP Semiconductors. It’s split in two assemblies, the top hosting active components like the freakishly loud 90dB speaker and the bottom containing the wireless recharging power system.
