Carrying cash can be a drag, but it's often an even bigger nuisance for shopkeepers with iPad point-of-sale terminals. Because of a focus on swiping plastic, storage solutions for your dollar bills take a back seat. The WindFall Cash Drawer is Heckler Designs' stylish US-made option that, according to the company, offers the smallest footprint of any drawer currently available -- it's probably the brightest, too. Cash Drawer follows the aesthetics of the Arizona designer's other pieces; namely, heavy-duty steel construction, rounded corners and minimalist design. Is your storefront already rocking a WindFall stand for Apple's slate? Well, you're in luck, as the nouveau till sports a secure mounting and cable management system for it. Sure there's a slight bit of irony surrounding its current lack of pricing, but don't let that get you down. When it launches this fall, it'll be available exclusively from ShopKeep POS.
Heckler Design Introduces a Sleek, Next-Generation Cash Drawer for iPad POS
The WindFall Cash Drawer offers an innovative alternative to the traditional cash register
PHOENIX, Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Heckler Design, a made-in-the-USA product design company, today introduced a stylish, modern alternative to the bulky, commonplace cash drawers currently available for tablet-based point-of-sale systems. The new Heckler Design WindFall Cash Drawer offers the smallest footprint and sleekest design of any cash drawer on the market today.
The new drawer will be available to purchase through ShopKeep POS, a launch partner for the WindFall Cash Drawer. Made in the USA, it features heavy steel construction, an automatic drawer, innovative till layout, integrated mounting options, and compatibility with a variety of currencies. The drawer also integrates seamlessly with the WindFall stand for iPad, complete with secure mounting and cable management. WindFall Cash Drawer is a part of the WindFall Modern Shop Hardware collection by Heckler Design. It will be available in black grey, grey white, bright red, and hand-polished stainless steel.
"The sheer size of the conventional cash register made them more of a barrier between the shop owner and customer and limited the ability to have a personal checkout experience," said Dean Heckler, founder of Heckler Design. "The WindFall Cash Drawer was designed to free up counter space, serve as a conversation piece, and deliver the best checkout experience possible. Now there is a sleek, aesthetically pleasing alternative to the traditional register."
"Tablet-based point-of-sale has changed the look of the countertop forever, so it makes sense that the cash drawer should modernize too," said Jason Richelson, Founder and CEO of ShopKeep POS. "The WindFall Cash Drawer turns a functional piece of hardware into a stylish countertop design feature, following the same sleek lines as the classic WindFall iPad stand.
"ShopKeep has been proud to offer Heckler Design products to our customers for almost two years. We were the first to sell the WindFall iPad stand, and we're excited to be the first to offer the WindFall Cash Drawer."
This fall, in addition to its WindFall Modern Shop Hardware bundle, Heckler Design will offer a complete bundle for next-generation iPad-based point-of-sale, which will include the newly released Star Micronics DK-AirCash and Star Micronics receipt printers.
The WindFall Cash Drawer will be available through ShopKeep POS with other popular point-of-sale solution providers to follow. It will also be available through www.HecklerDesign.com.
