Windows Embedded POSReady 7 is an operating system optimized for point-of-service (POS) solutions, unleashing the power of Windows 7 to deliver attractive and compelling user experiences. The platform simplifies management and ease of deployment, going beyond inventory tracking and tendering to provide comprehensive access to information that helps retailers deal with today’s challenges, while preparing for tomorrow’s opportunities.
Control applications with AppLocker, a simple and flexible mechanism that allows administrators to specify exactly what is allowed to run on the POS device.
Protect POS terminal internal hard disks with BitLocker, and use BitLocker To Go to encrypt external hard disks and thumb drives.
Windows Embedded POSReady 7 allows retailers to remove feature packages, reducing the attack surface areas of Point of Sale devices, which helps retailers maintain industry compliance.
Block unauthorized network traffic flowing in and out of each device with Windows Firewall and advanced security protection.
Prior versions of Windows Embedded, including Windows Embedded 7, 8 and 8.1 products, have limited support when running on new processors and chipsets from manufacturers like Intel, AMD, NVidia, and Qualcomm. For more information, please see the Support Lifecycle FAQ.
Windows Embedded POSReady 7 allows organizations to extend existing investments in management and infrastructure. Your Windows Embedded POSReady 7 solution provides seamless management and control of in-store devices like Windows PCs and servers, through the Active Directory (AD) domain and compatibility with Microsoft System Center. Windows Embedded POSReady 7 also reduces the cost and complexity of managing POS devices by providing the enterprise with a wide range of management tools, from advanced image management to robust group policy settings.
Windows Embedded POSReady 7 provides the flexibility to offer exciting and innovative user experiences through Windows Presentation Foundation, a user interface framework, coupled with support for multi-gesture touch interfaces and context-aware applications. The resulting POS devices are familiar, intuitive and easy to use for your employees and customers, with eye-catching graphics and a rich UI. Windows Embedded POSReady 7 also improves the multimedia experience by harnessing Windows Media Player 12 and other enhancements, such as bandwidth reservation, for a seamless media experience.
In today’s dynamic and multichannel environment, retailers are finding the need for device and system integration in order to serve customers the way they expect. By connecting POS devices, enterprise applications and cloud services into an organization-wide intelligent system, retailers can more accurately forecast sales, develop dynamic pricing models, better understand their customers, and realize new value from new streams of information.
Windows Embedded POSReady 7’s integration with independent hardware is simplified using the plug-n-play support for POS peripherals, which provides an open device-driver architecture that is based upon the Unified Point of Service (UPOS) industry standard. POS for .NET supports all 36 peripheral device categories specified by the standard, including barcode scanners, magnetic stripe readers (MSR), radio frequency identification (RFID) readers, receipt printers, scales, line displays and more.
Windows Embedded POSReady 7 includes a number of features that can take advantage of rich graphics engines, such as the Windows Aero interface, and support for 64bit (x64) and 32bit (x86) CPUs. Improvements in power management ensure that background activities are reduced, thereby helping the POS processor to conserve power by remaining idle more often, and turning off power to the Ethernet adapter when it’s not being used. Additionally, Windows Embedded POSReady 7 offers smart power management APIs, which help device makers build power-efficient applications, along with other tools to deliver solutions that help save energy costs and reduce environmental impact.
Increase your customers’ enterprise-wide intelligence by connecting their line-of-business systems to data in their POS systems. Windows Embedded POSReady 7 evolves traditional POS devices, allowing your enterprise customers to go beyond inventory tracking and tendering, and provide comprehensive information access to in-store staff. Your devices will offer a seamless remote experience on a POS solution through the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 7.1, so customers can access a server-based infrastructure such as Microsoft Session Virtualization.
