POS Solution for Worldwide Retail Market; BlueCat Linux POS Enables Retailers to Take Advantage of Open Source Software Benefits

LynuxWorks Inc. introduced a new embedded Linux point-of-sale (POS) solution targeting the worldwide retail market. LynuxWorks BlueCat(R) Linux(TM) POS enables retailers to take advantage of the flexibility, cost and time-to-market benefits of open source software with a uniquely constructed commercial embedded Linux operating system (OS). LynuxWorks BlueCat Linux POS marks the companys first product offering targeting the retail industry and entry into this growing market. The BlueCat Linux POS provides an implementation of the Linux model enhanced and scalable across a variety of POS system platforms, configurations and retailer environments to meet customer needs, from small console-based systems to larger, feature-rich and browser-capable systems. Retail POS vendors can easily migrate to a stable and reliable Linux environment. This coupled with long-term support from LynuxWorks, gives retailers confidence to begin realizing immediate productivity and optimized performance through the BlueCat Linux POS. POS systems are critical to the retail business infrastructure and facilitating business processes and retail efficiencies, including real-time product tracking, payment and profiling. These efficiencies make or break companies which often have razor thin margins. Linux is heavily being considered for POS systems to alleviate the costs of current OS infrastructures as retailers move beyond DOS and legacy POS systems and licensing fees for other embedded OSes. The BlueCat Linux POS helps facilitate the seamless migration to Linux by offering the smallest memory footprint among any other POS OSes currently available on the market, enabling the BlueCat Linux POS to operate on older memory confined POS terminals. Availability The BlueCat Linux POS is available immediately directly through LynuxWorks. Also available with the BlueCat Linux POS is a comprehensive set of tools for deploying Linux into embedded POS environments.
