Using robust integrated software, your authorized SAM4s dealer can design your custom application by choosing from an array of features available for food and retail operators. The SPS-530 is an ideal replacement for older-technology ECRs, a cost-effective alternative to PC-based POS systems, and a powerful platform for independent franchises, multi-unit operators and chain accounts.

  • Choose a Flat or Raised-Key Keyboard: The flat-keyboard configuration can easily accommodate over 100 onetouch preset keys, significantly more than any touch screen POS terminal. Your cashier can locate and register items quickly, keeping your lines moving. The raised keyboard provides all the functions required by busy retailers.
  • 7″ Color Touch Screen Improves Order Entry Accuracy: Unlike an ECR that may display only the last item entered, the SPS-500 displays the entire order, allowing your operator to confirm the order and then refer to the display as they fill it.
  • Lock & Key Security: Authority is managed using traditional, secure cash register keys.
  • Display Up to 200 Operator Screens with 24-Items per Screen: The color touch screen can be configured to guide the operator through choices of flavors, toppings, condiments, and instructions. If you sell a combo meal, a screen or series of screens can display to reflect the combo choices. If the item requires condiments or instructions, the screen can lead your operator through options and additional choices.
  • On Screen Manager and Program Access: Access manager and programming functions intuitively through menus and on-screen options. Programming and editing can be done without referring to manuals. Managers can easily view report data and quickly adjust to changing conditions.
  • Flexible, Built-In Printers: A cost-effective design allows the built-in printer to generate both receipts and requisitions – the 3″ printer (SPS530) delivers an extremely high-quality requisition. If multiple ECRs are connected in the same network, print jobs can be directed to the printer in another ECR, effectively allowing one ECR to double as a system kitchen printer. In the same manner, receipts or journal data can be routed as demanded by the application.
