Tokyo, Japan – March 1, 2016 – NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) today announced the launch of the TWINPOS G5000 series, a new lineup of touchscreen POS terminals.

|Pole Mount Model|
The new TWINPOS G5000 series provides an extensive lineup of standard, pole-mount, wall-mount, and other models, enabling flexibility for installation in a variety of store layouts. In addition, the use of a bezel-free display avoids ingress of water drops and dust from the front of the display. Moreover, the new series offers easy maintenance of key components such as the hard disk drive, Random Access Memory (RAM) and power supply unit.
The new product supports NEC’s middleware that collects operational status of the POS terminal, including accumulated operating time, CPU load and internal temperature to detect actual and impending failures. Furthermore, the middleware visualizes remaining life of key components. The information obtained by the middleware enables preventative maintenance or quick recovery from failure, which in turn reduce opportunity losses resulting from POS terminal malfunctions.
Moreover, the TWINPOS G5000 series contributes to efficient chain store operations when used with NEC’s business solutions for global retailers (*), which comprehensively covers business needs ranging from store operations to headquarters’ operations.
NEC has been assisting non-stop store operations for more than twenty years. Going forward, NEC will provide continuous support for retailers to expand their business through its Life Cycle Management (LCM) services that support every part of the life cycle from planning to development, installation, deployment, and maintenance of ICT equipment for optimized store management.
NEC will showcase the new product at RETAIL TECH JAPAN 2016 at Tokyo Big Sight from 8-10 March 2016.
The TWINPOS G5000 series is part of the NEC Global Enterprise Solutions lineup, NEC’s portfolio of continually upgraded and expanded solutions and services offered globally to enterprise customers in retail, distribution, manufacturing, and other fields.
