Foodstuffs supermarket chain New World is New Zealand’s largest retail organisation, employing more than 30,000 people all of which require sophisticated POS systems. Their POS terminals are subject to demands for excellent space management, high volume EFTPOS terminal usage and high performance requirements. Foodstuffs New World supermarkets are also extremely well presented places of business.
It was important for Foodstuffs customers to experience a clean and tidy POS space while simultaneously providing employees with a sophisticated, ergonomic and streamlined working environment. Foodstuffs required a back to back display configuration with attached EFTPOS terminal mounts as a standard fitting for each aisle in their stores. Foodstuffs also needed the best possible site configuration to maximise workspace efficiency.
Foodstuffs installed the Spacepole POS mounts across its national chain of stores. Atdec chose an articulated monitor mount to match Foodstuffs needs. The recommended Spacepole solution carries dual display screens while simultaneously incorporating an EFTPOS terminal as an integrated extra. Spacepole’s modular design allows the mount to be configured to take any type of POS display with only minor alterations. The Spacepole mounting solution was perfectly suited for this role:
- The heavy duty articulated Spacepole arm can accommodate any type or brand of commercial POS display.
- The tilt mounting of the displays allows for a simple ergonomic configuration for terminal users and customers.
- Baseplate configuration has a small footprint which can be customised to manage display mounting fittings to save work space.
- The EFTPOS terminal mount can accommodate all types of terminals.
Using the superior Spacepole cable management system; power, VGA and communications cables are concealed in a “one size for all cabling” mode for all terminals to ensure a smooth installation. The Spacepole solution was elegant, cost-effective and met all requirements. The result was the neat, streamlined POS setups you see pictured.
