April 28th, 2014
SPARTANBURG, S.C. – QS/1's pharmacy management systems and point-of-sale platforms can now be used with Motion Computing’s SlateMate tablet PCs.
“The SlateMate puts the power of QS/1’s applications into your hands,” says Charles Garner, marketing analyst at QS/1. “Being a PC, the SlateMate can run a QS/1 Windows client.”
SlateMate has an integrated magnetic strip reader and can be configured with a barcode scanner that allows users to process credit cards and capture signatures. Receipts can be printed on an optional wireless printer.
The tablet connects to an in-store Wi-Fi network. Beyond the store, it allows users online access via cellular hot spots or built-in 4G cellular service.
QS/1’s customers include pharmacies, long-term-care facilities and home medical equipment businesses.
