Electro-mechanical input devices play a significant role in the retail software industry, providing a means for retailers to interact with software applications and systems that facilitate various aspects of retail operations.

These devices combine electrical and mechanical components to convert physical actions or movements into electrical signals that can be interpreted by retail software.

Examples of electro-mechanical input devices that are commonly used in the retail software industry include:

  • Point-of-sale (POS) keyboards
  • Barcode scanners
  • Touchscreen displays
  • Cash drawer triggers
  • Card readers
  • Signature capture pads
  • Weighing scales
  • Self-service kiosks
  • Receipt printers

Electro-mechanical input devices enable seamless interaction with software applications, accurate data entry, secure payment processing, and efficient inventory management, contributing to the success of retail businesses.

At Devlin Electronics we offer new software-based EPOS applications that allow the user to completely program a keyboard. The benefits of using electro-mechanical input devices in the retail software industry are to streamline retail operations, enhance customer experiences, and improve overall efficiency.

These are some of the key features Devlin can offer to your custom product:

  • Device Integration - integrating devices within the product can help to reduce the footprint and simplify cabling e.g. incorporating a card reader within the keyboard.
