Designed to be seamlessly integrated into a wide range of retail environments, including fashion, drug, convenience, departments stores, supermarkets and mass merchants, the TP8 family, along with the full line of industry-leading retail solutions from Fujitsu, will be featured in the Fujitsu Booth #3905 at the National Retail Federation's (NRF) Big Show in New York City at the Jacob K.

The Fujitsu TP8 terminals are engineered to be highly serviceable by in-house IT staff, helping retailers maximize uptime and minimize costs. Installation, repair and updates of the TP8 terminal have been streamlined and simplified thanks to a modular design, tool-free access, remote-management capability with Intel® vPro™ technology and common motherboard components across all-in-one unit (AIO) and PC box models.
"The 7th generation Intel® Core™ processors empower retailers to remotely manage their new TP8 family of point-of-sale platforms with Intel® vPro™ technology," said Joe Jensen, Vice President and General Manager of the Retail Solutions division at Intel. "TP8 terminals, from the new family of long-lifecycle Fujitsu POS terminals, offers unique modularity, which enables retailers to mix and match configurations to meet the needs of the quickly transforming retail in store environment."
The Fujitsu TP8 terminal enables sales associates to do much more than transactions. With TP8 AIO 15" and 18.5" LCD options, modular AIO design and dual independent customer-facing display, sales associates can handle numerous customer-focused applications, such as sales assist, registration, promotions, and loyalty programs. A full portfolio of leading-edge, robust POS peripherals, including cash drawers, three-track magnetic stripe readers, keyboards and printers, give retailers the ability to extend the useful life of their investments through incremental modifications as their business requirements grow and change.
