Sales of duty-free products with the IT-3000

The use

In all 51 planes of Czech Airlines the on board sales of duty free products are performed with the mobile sales terminal IT-3000. The airline crew can rely on the software solution POP.FLY by ODP-software which is installed on all the CASIO terminals. With the integrated 2D imager the barcodes on the products are scanned and the quantity and product prices are multiplied directly. Payment is possible in cash or with credit card. The information on the credit card is compared with a black list on the SD card which is updated before every flight. The compact design of the IT-3000 makes selling products in the aisle of the plane very convenient. Even accidental drops on the cabin floor can not harm the device due to its robust construction.

Cashless payment transactions are simplified
