"For the past two years, our company has been providing mobile solutions that run on Apple iOS and Motorola Android platforms," said Aaron Hagler, vice president, solutions delivery, Agilysys Retail Solutions Group. "Now, through our partnership with Motion, we are excited to offer our customers cutting-edge mobile POS solutions running on a Windows platform as well. Motion`s ruggedized mobile technology and breadth of accessories are a great fit for our retail-hardened solutions offerings and are an immediate fit to enable mobile tablets for Windows-based store technology retailers." With the addition of Motion tablets, Agilysys` customers that use back-of-store, Windows-based servers and applications can now seamlessly harness the benefits of mobile POS functionality.
