GS1 DataBar Application Identifiers (AI) Infrastructure
A dynamic infrastructure for product identification gives stores
better item control, smarter category management, reduced out of
stocks, and less shrinkage—all in one POS solution. With a higher
level of product identification at the register, it is easier to keep
tainted items from being sold and to monitor perishable goods.
Fresh food identifiers provide an accurate inventory so that dated
items can be automatically triggered for quick sales.
Mobile commerce-enabled
Toshiba SurePOS ACE can be extended to provide the same front
lane POS functionality retailers know and trust to consumers’
smart phones or other mobile devices. The integration of mobile
capabilities, offered by The Toshiba Worldwide Services group,
enables stores to take advantage of the growing popularity of
customer mobile applications with minimal risk and fast time
to value.
Digital and no-receipt option
For shoppers who go paperless today, SurePOS ACE gives them
the choice. Receipts for sales transactions can be suppressed
entirely, or processed digitally in XML and delivered directly to
the customer’s online or mobile address. This not only saves time
at checkout, it helps stores reach environmental goals.
Deliver better, faster, personalized service
With Toshiba SurePOS ACE,the store checkout literally
transforms from a point of sale to a point of service. Offered at
checkout, services not only please customers, they build
incremental revenue for your stores.

Lower risks, reduce costs
and participant by delivering a seamless WIC transaction at
the POS that appears similar to other card payments. Other
enhancements mean customers can purchase a mixed basket
of WIC and non-WIC items, also, discounts and “best price”
identifiers can be integrated seamlessly while reducing checkout
confusion for the clerk and WIC shopper.
Enhanced security for PCI compliance
New security features for PCI compliance include enabling
retailers to remove sensitive pin pad data from store systems and
an encryption library to enable easier and superior security of
cardholder information. Additionally, retailers have the ability to
mask EBT account numbers and decrease the risk of a potential
data break.
SurePOS ACE Electronic Payment Support (EPS)
Beyond providing support for electronic payments, which
includes prepaid gift and phone cards, new features on SurePOS
ACE/EPS speed check card payments and help improve store
processes, while lowering costs. With a tool like SurePOS
ACE/EPS, managers can be more productive and more
accountable while helping stores optimize inventory and
minimize costs. SurePOS ACE/EPS enables managers to view
cashier transactions on any active terminal. They can build lists for
selective item reporting, access stored transaction logs to create
summary reports, and they can create batches for updating prices.
Fraud Prevention
SurePOS ACE has added support to detect and ID fraudulent
paper coupons. A retailer can create groups and build tables that
can support up to 540 fraudulent GS1 and 540 UPC coupons.
When a fraudulent is scanned, the cashier is notified, a customized
message is displayed to the customer, and the coupon is prevented
from being entered into transaction.
Improve accuracy
New features of Toshiba SurePOS ACE include automatically
detecting payment cards; restricting the tender type customers
can use for items such as lottery or gift cards; increased precision
on percent-off coupons and improvements for percentage-off all
matching items. Storing customer names when a payment card is
processed with a PIN pad helps if there is a transaction dispute.
Generate new revenue streams
GTech is one of three online Lotto gaming providers authorized
by State Lottery Commissions to sell Quick Pick wager lottery
tickets at the point of sale. With SurePOS ACE/EPS, no
additional equipment is necessary in the lane to sell Lotto tickets.
And there is no change in transaction flow. Tickets can be printed
out on standard receipt printer paper.
Reduce operating costs
Minimal operator training is needed when implementing the
new release of SurePOS ACE. With a flexible toolkit and strong
backward and forward compatibility, you can use the same
hardware, host interface, data format and operator interface as you
migrate between releases and develop custom extensions. Toolkit
support for Windows 7 is now provided so development work
performed by the retailer can executed on a primary workstation
running Windows 7. Enabled with Toshiba Remote Management
Agent (RMA), the advanced POS solution provides software
distribution, proactive monitoring, asset tracking, and problem
determination from one local or enterprise location. So service
and maintenance costs can be reduced dramatically.
In addition to lottery revenue, the flexible integration tools
provided by Toshiba SurePOS ACE can expand checkout
capabilities to support other store devices that can add revenue—
such as fuel pumps and in-store services like coffee shops,
boutiques and personal shopping assistants. With SurePOS ACE
you can energize loyalty and preferred shopper programs with
electronic marketing, digital coupons, and promotion engines.
Access product information and accurate price data from every
customer touch point. Streamline transaction processing with
electronic journaling.
