For shopkeepers who want to keep their cash and receipts straight when they're using an iPad-based point-of-sale (POS) system, there are a few choices available for cash drawers. Back when Square announced the Business in a Box bundle, they company chose an iPad stand designed by Tempe, Ariz.-based Heckler Design. Now Dean Heckler and his team have announced availability of a full-fledged cash drawer. The WindFall Cash Drawer for iPad (Updated: will be part of a bundle priced at US$399) would look great in any store, and comes in black grey, grey white, bright red and hand-polished stainless steel.
Heckler Design will be selling the WindFall Cash Drawer as part of its Modern Shop Hardware line, and store owners can also work with ShopKeep.com for a full point-of-sale solution that's an alternative to Square Register. As part of the bundle Heckler will sell, they're planning to include the new Star Micronics DK-AirCash wireless cash drawer controller and Star Micronics receipt printers. More info is included in the full press release below.
The WindFall Cash Drawer offers an innovative alternative to the traditional cash register
PHOENIX (Aug. 6, 2013) – 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.
