Check Out the iPad Cash Register in Grand Central Station

Small, sleek and fast: this video shows what a great cash register an iPad can make for a high-traffic small business. Here it is getting the java going for the crowds at Joe in Grand Central Terminal in New York.

ShopKeep.com is behind the point-of-sale app designed for small businesses that can also print out receipts and even makes a satisfying ka-ching when the sale rings up. The iPad register also transmits sales to its web-based BackOffice so that managers using ShopKeep’s BackOffice can track sales in real time and can manage inventory, run reports and export the data.

We’ve been seeing a lot of iPads in small businesses like restaurants, but this may be the first cash register to face a similar commuter onslaught.

The folks at ShopKeep tell us that they’re also ringing up tabs in New York with iPad cash registers at Steve’s Ice Cream on 42nd Street and 5th ave. and at Joe in the Northwest Corner of the Columbia University building.

Sure, iPad tills aren’t quite taking over Manhattan, but soon they may be a common sight in small businesses.

    I have heard South West Systems in the UK offer a very comprehensive iPad Solution for Hospitality type businesses as well as Retail. They also offer customers in different parts of the world to use different currencies and tax rates e.g. Euros, Dollars, Pounds, Swiss Francs. One of my colleagues who went to college with has the iPad Till Systems from South West Systems in his two pub / restaurants and he says the support and software is excellent!
