Featuring a sleeker look, all-in-one design and more powerful processor, Harbortouch POS Elite is designed to meet the needs of a broader range of businesses, especially those catering to higher end markets.

What's inside is even more powerful."

POS Elite incorporates a state-of-the-art processor, increased storage space and highly-responsive touch-screen display into a durable and attractive form factor for exceptional speed, productivity and style. The system is available with various industry-specific software packages:

  • Harbortouch Hospitality, with countless time and money saving features perfect for fine dining, casual or quick service restaurants;
