May 8th and 9th saw us attend the UK’s major retail IT trade show, RBTE, which took place in the Great Hall, Olympia, London. As in previous years, RBTE was a huge success. It was the first time that the new corporate branding had been seen in the UK, and gave us a chance to formerly debut SpacePole Stack payment mounting solution and the OpenSpace A-Frame tablet enclosure and mounting system.
Enormous interest was shown by visitors to the stand in our OpenSpace range of tablet mounts and accessories. This very much reflects a retail industry embracing the need to address the issue of customer engagement across the store through tablet-based applications that bring that omnichannel shopping experience to life.
The OpenSpace A-Frame™ from Ergonomic Solutions provides that security in an enclosure that offers the ultimate flexibility for a range of stand-alone applications.
It has been designed and manufactured in aluminium. A 10-day time to market production process means that A-Frame can react to an ever-changing tablet market, where new devices or revisions of existing tablets are the norm.
The A-Frame enables applications across the store. From in-store ordering, information look up points and even virtual merchandising and utilising a simple fitting kit, a mobile payment terminal can be added when housed in our specially designed M-Case sleeve to create a very cool looking mPOS system.
On the evening of 8th May, we once again hosted a very busy reception in a local pub, with over 200 attendees. This annual event is seen as the premier event running alongside the show, and allowed a fantastic networking opportunity for us to speak in a more relaxed atmosphere with some of the leading retailers and hardware manufacturers who attended the show.
