|QS/1 Adds Portability to Checkout||| Print ||
A new remote checkout system from QS/1 uses a 7-inch color touch-screen wireless tablet to provide portability to pharmacy checkout. “No longer are you tied to a point-of-sale terminal. The remote checkout tablet allows staff to go anywhere to help customers, whether it is in a pharmacy aisle, drive-thru window, or the front door of a customer’s house” says Tom McLeod, VP of administration and marketing for the company.
The new unit will allow processing of credit and FSA cards, capture signatures for PSE products and HIPAA, scan barcodes, and print receipts using an optional portable printer. Two USB ports, a three-track magstripe reader, a barcode scanner, and a battery that will last for six hours of continuous use are built into the device.
McLeod reports that hospitals will find remote checkout valuable. It allows patients to sign for prescriptions in their room before being discharged.
He also explains that if you use a cellular service on the device, you can use it anywhere you have a signal.
