Secure iPad Mounts for Counter POS Use
Secure iPad Holders Make Effective Cash Registers and Ordering Kiosks
The days of the cash register are quickly moving behind us. In fact, approximately 28% of North American retailers had adopted iPad stands as cash registers as of 2013. How are they doing it? Many retailers are using secure iPad mounts and fixing them to counters and checkout stations. Retailers can mount the iPad and then use a card reader to swipe for guests, then easily have them sign with their finger or by specialized pen. Many locking iPad holders can also completely rotate to change orientation from landscape to portrait. Looking to really max the potential of iPad implementation for your business?

Locking tablet displays can also be set up at delis, sandwich shops and grocers for people to punch in their orders for pick up instead of waiting in line. Automate orders and remove human errors by having customers submit everything themselves. Many displays can be bolted directly to a counter to prevent theft and alleviate any security concerns.

Some standout features are available for these secure iPad mounts that make them great for retail and the restaurant industry. All enclosures lock, and some even feature double locks for extra security. Rotating displays allow users to change the angle to avoid glare or get a better view of the screen. Many models come available with the home button exposed or covered (some come with the option for either/or). By covering the home button, retailers can prevent tampering and force users to remain within a specific app. An exposed home button allows full access to all the contents of the iPad or tablet. Some displays are also compatible with a wide selection of tablets like the Galaxy and Nexus 7. Worried about keeping it charged?
