How close are we to a cashless society?

Just as credit and debit cards are gradually killing the cheque, it’s now predicted that we’re heading towards a cashless future. But will we ever really give up cash all together?

Over 340 billion non-cash payments, with an estimated total value of $883 trillion, were undertaken globally in 2014, according to the Bank of International Settlements.

Product Spotlight: FLEXiPOLE Tablet Stand

Tailwind is proud to announce the launch of a brand new stand designed specifically to secure Point of Sale iPads against theft and damage.
For retailers running the latest tablet-based Point of Sale systems, the new FlexiPole Tablet stand ensures devices are protected against criminal tampering and everyday wear and tear.

The Tablet stand is formed of a sleek iPad enclosure that protects the device from bumps, scratches and damage without adding bulk. iPads can be charged in place without the need to remove the SecureBack™ and a mount for a headphone jack card-reader is included.

Tailwind’s Contour is our wall mount solution for your payment terminals. Contour offers a secure and discreet mounting solution, with a 140° tilt and a 180° swivel, for a wide range of terminals.

In some Point of Sales systems, a wall mounted solution is ideal. Whether keeping tills and counter-tops clear is important to your store or there is no horizontal surface to attach our Complete or Compact solutions to, the Contour wall mount could be the ideal solution for your Point of Sale system.
