ParTech, has launched its new fifth-generation POS hardware design, ViGo POS. ViGo is the first POS terminal offering fully-integrated peripheral options for the hospitality, entertainment and retail markets.

ViGo, with its patent pending design, does what no other POS terminal on the market can do: save customers money and counter space by combining required external devices into a single package. Some optional integrated add-ons include: -- Credit/Debit Card Reader and PinPad -- USB Barcode Scanner -- CDR/W or DVD Drive -- 8.4 VGA Customer-side Graphics and Touch Screen Display -- 5 Quarter VGA Customer-side Graphics Display -- Stereo Audio with Customer-facing Speakers -- Side-mounted USB ports -- Wireless (802.11g) -- 2 MiniPCI slots Customers have come to expect vigorous performance from PAR hardware and ViGo is no exception. PARs POS4xp exceeded expectations by setting the bar for industry leading reliability standards and ViGo is engineered to meet or exceed those reliability standards, as opposed to other retail POS terminals that exhibit failures on average within 2 - 3 years. The extra-thick PVC-plastic casework design provides an easy-to-clean enclosure that protects the electronics from spills and frequent cleanings that are common in hospitality environments. Additionally, the large 15 vivid touch screen enhances usability, resulting in increased accuracy and speed-of-service. Ergonomic features include operator handgrips, bi-directional magnetic card reader and a customer-side electronic payment interface with insert-style magnetic card reader and PinPad. On top of full integration and leading reliability, ViGo also boasts cutting-edge technology including an embedded ATX motherboard designed around Intel(R) standards, Intel Pentium4 processors up to 3 GHz, 2 GB memory, an optional second hard drive, powered USB and AMIBIOS(R)8 for complete open systems support. ViGos open platform is certified for Windows(R) XP, Windows(R) 2000, Linux and DOS operating systems.
