What is SpacePole?
SpacePole is a universal, flexible ergonomic mounting system of plates and poles, which enable you to integrate POS technology - with new or existing furniture. The challenges of integrating technology with existing or new furniture can cause problems for almost every retailer. SpacePole provides a universal solution to this by placing the equipment on a unique, modular system of 'plates and poles'. This improves the ergonomics of the checkout, enhances the safety of the equipment and reclaims valuable counter space.
What is special about ergonomics in the retail environment?
The nature of the work in retail often includes repetitive tasks with limited variation, in constrained spaces.
New technologies often need to be incorporated into work areas and small changes can affect the whole work system. For example, PIN payment for customers. These devices need to be incorporated into the work space, be secure, private and accessible.
Access to retail fixtures needs to be available to all employees and customers. The equipment and environment need to be accessible and safe for use and protected from wilful or accidental damage.
What problems does SpacePole solve?
Improved Space Efficiency
The POS equipment is raised off the counter, enabling the most effective use of space available for the processing of customer transactions
The position of the equipment can be quickly and simply adjusted to meet the requirements for individual staff members. By improving the ergonomics of the checkout, cashier productivity and accuracy are enhanced.
Improved Safety and Security of Technology
The equipment can be securely attached to the plates to help prevent accidental damage or un-authorised removal. SpacePole offers you full cable management - either internal (inside the pole) or external (with plastic cable clips).
What if I want to change my screen, or my payment terminal, or my keyboard?
As SpacePole is a modular system you simply change the mounting bracket for the screen, the plate for the payment terminal, or the plate for the keyboard. You don't have to change the whole mounting solution.
What is SpacePole made of?
The base material used for manufacturing SpacePole mounting solutions is metal and plastic inserts are used which make any adjustment smooth and easy. SpacePole has been proven in retail installations for over 10 years and installed over 1 million units. SpacePole has been proven for a period of minimum 5 years without the need for tightening or lubrication. However should an unlikely problem within the warranty period of five years occur then you will be provided with a replacement (5 years warranty on all metal mounting parts).
