Non Profit Launches Business Pandemic Preparedness System

Press Conference June 1st, 2021, 11:00 am EST; the world needs pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and universal safe business practices.

We have to change the narrative. We need to take the politics out of our governance. We need to come together as a community if we are to be successful.”

— Steve Anderson

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 31, 2021 / — Over the past year, SmALL businesses have felt helpless, hopeless, unsupported, and confused. Witnessing the pain and challenges felt and faced by honest, hardworking people in our communities, it became very clear we MUST take action. This sparked the inception of the organization called Social Distance Management (SDM).

Edward Henry Company (EHCO) has made the decision to give away all licensing rights and intellectual property of SDM, which includes Social Distance Advisory (SDA), Social Distance Compliance (SDC) systems, and research to SmALL Business is Essential (SBE).

SDM believes that all businesses need universal compliance measures to operate safely during a pandemic and other unprecedented times. By having access to these practical systems, SBE will have the resources it needs to develop the support for all businesses. ALL businesses are essential, and business continuity is the focus. Any opportunities managed from these systems will help all businesses secure and implement adequate steps to stay open, thrive, and have their voices heard.

The Journey of Social Distance Management

In March of 2020, EHCO started SDM with a mission to stand by businesses. Two months later, on May 11, 2020, with extensive research, collaboration and data collection, they released their first version of universal compliance standards.

Under SDM, sub-resources, including SDA and SDC systems, were established to display universal compliance guidelines and assess the threat levels in specific areas to protect the population. The idea to start SDM came from the utmost care about people and businesses, not from a political approach. Universal health measures and the life of our economy are not two isolated conversations. It is ONE conversation.

To contribute to the information gathered, in July of 2020, a Research Internship was formed to discover and outline details on various businesses in Canada and the United States. The outcome of the research included details which contributed to SDC, such as further development of safety protocols, requirements for operation, compliance measures, capacity limits, and PPE requirements. SDM used the data collection to create additional tools, such as self-assessment audits that provide a checklist for what businesses need to stay compliant and operate safely.

Taking its cue from other systems such as ISO, Homeland Security, The World Health Organization, and research from John Hopkins University, SDM developed its Advisory system. This system was developed with the intent to assist businesses and communities in preparing for crises and mitigating restrictions. “There needs to be accountability to the decisions that are being made that affect our small businesses,” said President of EHCO, Edward Henry.

The Advisory system narrows in on the WHO’s Pandemic Phases and the Homeland Security system and uses five levels of risk and threat: low, moderate, substantial, severe, and critical. The colors associated include green, blue, yellow, orange, and red. Each phase clearly defines which business practices, products, and services are considered essential and non-essential and the types of businesses permitted to open during each phase. The Advisory system is currently in the process of implementing data from John Hopkins University, along with data collected by other reputable models.

Despite the aforementioned systems, resources, and extensive research to support our findings, ambiguous guidelines still remain. Therefore, businesses are left without genuine reasons as to why they cannot safely reopen and recover.

A Multi-faceted Problem Requires Innovative Solutions

Stand By SmALL Businesses and Our Communities

SmALL Business is Essential

After spending some time in the development phase, SDM ventured out and sought support from government officials and local politicians. After COUNTLESS meetings and constantly being redirected elsewhere, it was time to take drastic action. Edward Henry states, “Limited power is not an excuse for not doing the right thing.” This year has been about a lot of the wrong things, and in the beginning, SDM was seen as a profit-making opportunity, and taking advantage of a terrible situation. The lack of change cannot continue. Coming together as a collective unit is essential.

For sustainable change to happen, SDM’s resources need to be placed in the right hands. They need to be placed with an organization that isn’t narrow minded, but bilateral with its thinking so sectors, such as health and business can come together. SBE is a not-for-profit association that operates based on three core pillars: pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and safe business practices. SBE aims to collectively arm small businesses with the support, protection, and resources needed to operate safely while envisioning economic recovery and stability through business unity.

This pandemic is not just a small business problem; it’s a world problem. The government’s attempt to segregate businesses into non-essential and essential classifications created ambiguity. This ambiguity initiated the thought that, not some, but ALL businesses are essential. As EHCO releases all of its SDM systems, traffic, assessment, and auditing models to SBE, a new leadership position begins. SBE’s goals encompass the severity of the issue at hand, which is why there is no better person for the job than Steve Anderson. As a Social Entrepreneur, Olympic Gold Medal Coach, and Community Champion, Anderson takes over as President of the not-for-profit association SBE. Edward Henry states, “My choice to recruit Steve Anderson was because of his character, coaching background, competitive nature to overcome challenges, and his experience with a multi-faceted range of individuals.” Speaking to Anderson’s character, he doesn’t make excuses. Steve is a good man, and SBE needs his character to bring everyone together.

Along with Anderson’s motivating character, he is the first African American to coach an Olympic team in indoor or beach volleyball and the first to win an Olympic Gold Medal in either practice. Anderson is highly committed to being the driving force behind SBE to support ALL businesses. He, along with the efforts of SBE, will pave the way towards a better normal.

Our current actions reflect our future results. If we don’t continue putting in effort and showing our care for our businesses, we will continue losing pieces of our community and, in turn, our economy. Small businesses have experienced unfair measures and restrictions, putting them at risk for permanent closure. Continuous lockdowns are not a solution. “This current pandemic has cost over $20 trillion because we were not prepared,” said Edward Henry. The definition of insanity is to perform the same actions and expect different results. “We will do this over again if we don’t start changing the way we do things,” he added. The focus needs to be on Social Distance Compliance and universal protocols to preserve business continuity. If we want an improved normal, we need to stand by SmALL businesses and our communities. There is no better time than now to help businesses transition from lockdowns and longer than expected restrictions.

PanzerGlass Launches Limited Artist Edition ClearCase by Mikael B

PanzerGlass Limited Artist Edition ClearCase by artist and philanthropist Mikael B

The clear case features the work of artist and philanthropist Mikael B, and for each unit sold worldwide, PanzerGlass will plant a tree.

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, May 31, 2021 / — PanzerGlass, one of the leading screen protection brands in the world, announces the launch of its Limited Artist Edition ClearCase™. The company has partnered with Los Angeles-based Danish artist and philanthropist Mikael Brandrup (a.k.a. Mikael B), an ambassador for the Perfect World Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises awareness and supports efforts to prevent the global ecological crisis.

"We are thrilled to have partnered with street artist Mikael B. for our first-ever limited artist edition clear case. For each unit sold, we will plant a tree in the Sir David Attenborough Forest. This collaboration bridges smartphone protection, abstract street style art, and forest restoration to create small changes for a better world," announces Head of Global Marketing Michael Broend.

The Limited Artist Edition ClearCase™ available for iPhone 11 and 12 models features Mikael B's original artwork, adapted from a mural he painted in Sta. Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, California specifically for the initiative. It has a signature antibacterial coating proven to kill up to 99.99% of most common surface bacteria, a 100% recycled TPU frame, and an extra-strong honeycomb pattern to enhance shock absorption providing 25% improved scratch resistance.

Limited Artist Edition ClearCase™ will appeal to customers who wish to express art and color while protecting their investment and those looking to make a difference in the world in their small way. Buying the unit allows device users to make the world a better place.

Mikael B is an urban contemporary artist who developed his own identity and unique signature, deeply rooted in his early years as a graffiti artist. He has always had a desire to give back and use his art to make a difference. For this reason, the artist founded the Mikael B Foundation in 2017, where all charity projects come together. It started with a school in Cambodia but has since spread to projects to save the world seas, planting trees to reduce CO2 in collaboration with The Perfect World Foundation.

On this collaboration, Mikael B commented: "The collaboration has been built on a shared passion for changing the world for the better. To kick off the collaboration, I created a mural called "Moment of Clarity" in Los Angeles (Santa Monica Blvd and Orange Grove Ave). I used the composition of the mural to design a ClearCase to protect your phone that bridges the PanzerGlass heritage and my art style."

"PanzerGlass is in business to protect both screens and the planet. As a global business, we believe we have a responsibility to find sustainable solutions in everything we do. The fewer devices we throw away due to broken screens, the fewer resources are needed to make new ones. Thus, the negative environmental impact is limited. So, by adding screen protection to your devices, you are also taking responsibility for our planet. Our journey for a greener planet started years ago – Let's continue this journey and take responsibility together," adds Michael Broend.

The Limited Artist Edition ClearCase will be made available for purchase at the leading Smartphone Electronics Accessories Retailers soon.

Battle For The Land Of Canaan: Father of Six Creates Battle of Gog, A Board Game For the Whole Family

Battle of Gog, Created by Vitali Minin

Battle of Gog, Created by Vitali Minin

World-Renowned Innovator Vitali Minin Creates a Board Game to Revolutionize Family Bonding, Launching on Kickstarter June 8th

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2021 / — In today’s world almost everyone spends their spare time using technology or playing video games. Every day we see more and more families separated, spending time alone playing the latest video game or binging the best new tv series. Crazzybox Inc aims to cultivate meaningful family connections with the new board game Battle Of Gog. Launching June 8th on Kickstarter, Battle of Gog is an easy-to-follow light strategy board game designed for 2-4 players, perfect for the whole family.

Founded by father of six Vitali Minin, Battle of Gog is shifting the narrative of traditional board game dynamics by emphasizing family interactions and strategic decision-making. The theme of the game was inspired by the Old Testament in the Bible from chapter 38 of The Book Of Ezekiel, but instead of using the well known Gog and Magog apocalyptic narrative, Vitali takes it to a totally fictional narrative as players aim tirelessly at winning the battle for the ancient land of Canaan. From conquering cities, to fighting enemy soldiers, obtaining the scrolls, or reaching all four corners of the map to make a winning move across the land of Canaan; Battle of Gog keeps players engaged, adrenaline high, and families connected for a well-rounded experience.

Featuring multiple conclusion scenarios to ensure that every game is diverse and different depending on the player’s decisions, Battle of Gog cultivates an energetic and exciting experience as families eagerly take turns to determine how the battle for Canaan will end. While most board games come with many pieces, long setup, and long playtime, Battle Of Gog uses the box itself as the game board, uses few parts, and its dynamic model keeps even the youngest players engaged from start to finish.

Through proof of concept, dedication to innovation, and unwavering commitment to connecting families across the world; Vitali Minin’s purpose-driven vision has come to fruition. Battle of Gog has just recently started a Kickstarter campaign, requesting a reasonable $39 contribution to help get this project off the ground and into the nearest toy store or online retailer.

About Crazzybox Inc:

Crazzybox Inc was developed by Vitali Minin; designer, illustrator, and inventor. Vitali has always been in the market of developing new and exciting toys and games for children and families around the world. Former founder and CEO at Modular Toys Ltd, Vitali Minin is dedicated to developing educational construction toys; one of which ended up being shrunk down and placed into a Kinder Egg for Italian chocolate giant, Ferrero. The goal with his new board game Battle of GOG is to create a simple, inexpensive, challenging light strategy board game for the whole family, where every game is different; but to win all players need to think and make wise choices.

Without the need for surgical intervention, our techniques can rejuvenate skin and create a naturally youthful look.”

— Master Dong Bao Tram, CEO of Miss Tram – Natural Beauty Center

HO CHI MINH, VIETNAM, May 29, 2021 / — Not all beauty salons meet standards of safety and effectiveness. Thus, it’s necessary to pay attention to some notes when having a skincare treatment. The following summary provides essential knowledge to ensure safety when getting a beauty service. Above all, keep reading to know where to go to find a reputable beauty center.

8 Notes That Are Needed To Consider When Going To A Skincare Beauty Center/Clinic In HCMC

What To Consider Before Going To The Beauty Salon?

There are a few things to keep in mind before going to a beauty center. They are essential for a successful treatment. So remember:
+ Have a good mood
+ Drink a lot of water
+ Do not bring valuables with
+ Do not eat within 1 hour before and after each application

Consider Modern And Hygienic Facilities Giving The Comfort

A design close to nature will bring comfort to customers. Women tend to seek out salons that are quiet, private and cozy. They are also interested in new and modern equipment.

Besides, hygiene is another factor that a quality center needs to meet. Technicians must clean towels and tools that contact the skin. The staff in the center must wear clean uniforms and have a neat appearance. It's needed to observe whether they wash their hands before and after performing the technique.

Choose A Suitable Service As Personal Condition

Everyone has different skin conditions. So there are various services for each.

The consultation phase plays an important role in the satisfactory outcome. This stage will begin with a skin scan and taking photos to compare with the results.

Reputable beauty centers will provide customers with thorough advice. It’s needed to share the experienced treatments and the used products in the past. That's essential information to help experts understand customer’s skin. A good specialist will know how to offer different treatments for each type of skin.

There are a few questions customers should ask a consultant in this period:
+ Which technology is used?
+ How is the process going on?
+ What will be the results?
+ Is there a written contract?
+ Are there any extra fees?

Compare Prices Of Various Center

Each beauty center offers different prices for the same service. But an identical treatment may not deliver an alike result. It’s needed to ask the consultant to explain the details that are packed in that service. The price variation can be the result of using different equipment and products.

The reviews of family, friends, and former customers are helpful for the right decision.

Consult An Experienced Expert
A good technician needs to meet the standard of knowledge and skill. They must ensure every step of a technique pleases their customers. The customers may ask to adjust the level of technique for relaxation. It's best to report it and consider stopping the treatment if there is something not satisfied.

Commit To Completing The Process

On the center side: A reputable facility will provide a contract. It talks to the customers about the results of the treatment and the essential risks.

On the customer side: It’s necessary to understand the benefits of the treatment and commit to persevere in the process. Once the customers sign it, they can not complain about an unsatisfactory result because of their unilateral pause of treatment.

Things To Do After Skincare At The Beauty Center
+ Do not let the skin be exposed to water or apply cosmetics on it in the first 12 hours
+ Do not squeeze acne within 24 hours after the application
+ Do not contact the skin or go to the sauna
+ Do not exfoliate and let the skin rest for about 2 – 5 days
+ No waxing, shaving, laser treatments, and makeup
+ Limit going outdoors to prevent UV rays
+ Replenish nutrients and water so that the skin recovers and is healthy from the inside

How Long Between Visits To The Beauty Center?
Specialists will need their customers to return to the center to complete the whole treatment. But if they don't get any end-to-end process, how long between visits to avoid damaging the skin?

Skin is exposed to dirt every day, so it's needed to get specialized care once a month. Professional consultations will help enhance skin health. Besides, having regard for skin and body will help ladies reduce stress and promote positive energy.

Where To Go For A Professional Skin Care Center In HCMC?
Miss Tram – Natural Beauty Center is an ideal destination for gentlemen & ladies. It has an operating motto that is a natural beauty. All customers report that Miss Tram's services please them for some reason.

Author Felix Cipher is Lord of the Reads with Phenomenal new YA Fantasy Frolic "Heroes of MidAria"

Spellbinding series "Heroes of MidAria" centers around a crossbreed angel demon who finds himself compromised within a forbidden world.

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, May 28, 2021 / — There is something special about young adult fantasy. Perhaps the limits YA authors set upon themselves deliver extra clever, humanistic stories more adult-oriented than some of their older counterparts?

YA fantasy definitively taps into our moral compass and provides an ability to stand up to the forces of evil—whether those forces are dark lords or hallway bullies.

Fantasy has often been a genre that transpires through travel and visiting unknown worlds of discovery and adventure. But sometimes, the most magical of places can be found right in the Middle Realms.

Nineteen-year-old Felix Cipher penned his first book entitled "Heaven's Demons" when he was a 15-year-old sophomore in high school. It boldly belongs to a series of 8+ future books Cipher intends to fulfill.

A basic teen, he describes himself as "an oddball who likes to waste any available time daydreaming, doodling, writing, and caring for all his beautiful snakes."

Four years later, Cipher has published a new action-packed fantasy adventure series entitled "Heroes of MidAria."

The spellbinding series centers around a crossbreed angel demon who finds himself compromised within a forbidden world.

Fantasy has the power to take us away—to escape, to make us reflect on our world in new and challenging ways, to fill us with awe and wonder about the beauties of the mystic.

Read this singular and spellbinding excerpt from "Heroes of MidAria" and enter a land of enchantment:

"In the strange and magical world of the Middle Realms, there are many diverse races of people that inhabit the lands. Humans, elves, dwarves, and plenty more civil creatures thrive on this planet. The different races are commonly viewed on a spectrum, and at the very ends of it, there are seraphs and demons. One exalted, and one feared. Every group in the middle of the gradient strives to be like the angels, as they are said to be pure-hearted and loving.

Unfortunately, what people know about these beings almost always comes from what they have been taught rather than based on experience. Because of this, it is often preached that a person can only be either good or bad, and anything in between isn't relevant.

It wasn't easy for Dacitrynn, who grew up in a very uncomfortable spot his whole life. Being a crossbreed of an angel and a demon isn't something that is welcomed in the world, especially since it is forbidden. After a lonely childhood of growing up as an outcast with the seraphs, it is finally time for Daci's life to change when he is banished from the High Lands following a public fight with his stepbrother that grew violent. However, even though Dacitrynn no longer lives with the angels, society below proves itself to be just as -if not even more cruel- than his birthplace, and hopelessness soon leaves him feeling defeated. Even if things eventually start to calm, there is always another stressor that makes its way into the half-demon's life, and at the end of the day, he can only find himself wandering back to the same two questions that have burdened him since the day of his birth:

"Is there truly a place for such a horrible monster like him in the world, and what use could his existence possibly serve?'

"Heroes of MidAria" keeps readers on the edge of their seats. For more information, visit

Felix Cipher
Felix Cipher is a basic teen, an oddball that likes to waste his available time daydreaming, doodling, writing, and caring for all his beautiful snakes. Inspiration to make this series derived from a myriad of interests. His work has served as an escape and an outlet over the years. Within his books, he finds it entertaining to ignore fantasy clichés while flipping them upside down on their heads. He frequently notices as a prominent theme and motivation within his writing is the idea of creating his own universe, and here, he has finally recorded the results.

NEW HAMBURG, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 28, 2021 / — A Patek Philippe Reference 3940 perpetual calendar men’s watch with 18kt white gold case and clasp, a Rolex Reference 1680 red Submariner Date men’s watch from 1972 with stainless steel case and band, and a VS2 diamond solitaire ring with a 1.99-carat center stone and 14kt white gold band are a few expected highlights in Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd.’s online-only Watches & Jewelry auction slated for Saturday, June 12th.

New music project, Random Parts by songwriter Jonathon Brannon.

New release "Take Me Back" by Random Parts. This is a feel-good, nostalgic pop-rock song that will charm any listener.

UNITED STATES, May 28, 2021 / —
Meet Random Parts:

LA-based Jonathon Brannon is the founder and songwriter for Random Parts. A pop-rock band that showcases Brannon’s exceptional songwriting abilities and talented guest vocalists.

Brannon has been releasing music since 2007 under the artist name, Brannon, with his longtime collaborator, David Cagle on vocals.

Random Parts is Brannon’s new project that is focusing on developing further into the pop-rock genre.

Brannon first discovered his talent for songwriting in his 20’s, when he needed an expressive outlet to help him deal with some difficult times. Unable to sleep, he began to write lyrics and wrote his first three songs in one night.

Brannon draws his inspiration from everyday life all around us. He told us: “I believe we all go through similar struggles, joys, heartbreaks, pitfalls and triumphs. I believe music has a great way of connecting with us and letting us know we’re not alone.”

His newest release “Take Me Back” sprung to fruition from a 9th-grade class picture that appeared on his Facebook memories. The inspiration came to him immediately and he wrote the lyrics in an hour and a half.

Take Me Back:

“Take Me Back” is the second single released by Random Parts featuring vocalist Bobby John. This is an emotive, upbeat, rock-pop song with dashes of country-rock, epic guitar riffs, inspiring drumming and an anthemic chorus.

John’s raspy, rock star vocals are enough to make any woman swoon and we just can’t resist joining in when he sings: “take me back, when life was more simple, with a couple of pimples, and dreams didn’t get off track. Oh take me back”.

This is a nostalgic song, reminiscing on our youth, friends, first loves, freedom and the excitement of having the whole world in front of you.

What great memories to return to! The song fills us with joyful and hopeful energy, returning to the days when we felt anything was possible. If you enjoy music from artists such as Nickleback and Daughtry then Random Parts will fit perfectly on your pop-rock playlist.

What’s Next:

Brannon has several exciting new songs gearing up for release, from both his projects as Brannon and Random Parts. We are excited to hear what this talented songwriter will treat us with next.

In the meantime, Brannon has a message for all his listeners and budding songwriters: “Thank you for listening and supporting the music. It truly means a lot and I don’t take it for granted. Also, if you’re just starting writing songs, keep writing. Even if you think those songs are bad, keep writing. Keep getting better and don’t be afraid to share your gift of connection.”

TAIPEI CITY, TAIWAN, May 28, 2021 / — High-Performance Retail POS – Clientron Ares755

The ultimate high-performance point-of-sale (POS) system for the retail and hospitality industries requires a combination of powerful computing hardware with maintenance-free components that provide desktop-level computing power with all the convenience needed for a retail POS. The Clientron Ares755 is designed from the ground up for POS retail applications that need a little more kick than low-power systems provide.

System Integrators Care About…

Enhanced system performance

At the heart of the Ares755 is a powerful 7th generation Intel® Core or Celeron processor, providing a spread of options to cover various use cases and enabling upgradable performance customization to suit increased processing demands. With powerful processors comes overheating risks, so to counter this, the Ares755 has a fanless design that ensures the system stays cool without utilizing failure-prone and noisy system fans.

To further enhance system performance, up to 16 GB of DDR RAM allows multiple programs to run on the system at any time without bogging down the system or resulting in excessive delays. Finally, SATA III and M.2 quicken the pace by bringing the fastest hard drive connection standards to the table.
Tool-free I/O expansion

One major frustration for system integrators is making changes to system hardware, especially when this requires a heavy set of tools and fiddling with multiple devices. When installing a new system on location, they want a quick and simple switch. The Ares755 has a clever I/O expansion slot for different I/O expansion cards without needing any tools for installation. Not even a screwdriver. Two cards are available.

• "Type C" — 1x 24V powered USB, 2x USB 2.0, mic-in, and line-out
• "Type E" — 4x USB2.0, and COM (via RJ45 with 5V/12V DC).

Plentiful peripherals
Easy-to-install peripherals are the best choice for simpler installation and a more stylish final product. Traditional approaches that add every peripheral with large standalone hardware attached with a long cable are unattractive compared to integrated extras. The Ares755 has a range of peripherals available that connect seamlessly to the main system. These include:

• 1D/2D barcode scanner
• Magnetic stripe reader
• i-Button reader
• RFID reader
• Fingerprint reader
• WiFi and Bluetooth

This comprehensive selection covers the vast majority of typical retail POS client needs.

Low-hassle installation

The greatest frustration for frontline employees installing retail POS systems is performing maintenance on hard-to-reach parts, especially the system internals. Usually, hard drives are difficult to replace, requiring opening the system case, unscrewing the hard drives, then replacing them. The use of hard drive cloning, which saves untold hours installing new operating systems, makes having an easily swappable hard drive necessary. On the Ares755, hard drive swaps are super simple because the system has an easy-access 2.5" SSD bay for easy installation and maintenance.

Jumper-free settings

People unfamiliar with the retail POS industry might not know how difficult it is to flip a simple switch. Selecting the voltage on DC-powered COM ports usually requires opening up the system and not just flipping a switch but removing and replacing tiny jumpers in hard-to-reach spaces on the system motherboard. The Ares755 solves this by eliminating the jumpers and placing the 5V/12V DC COM power selection in the BIOS settings. Turn on the system and make the change without opening up the computer and digging through the electronics.

Multiple mounting options

The Ares755 has standard VESA mounting. That may seem bland, but with the ubiquitous use of VESA as the defacto mounting standard, it covers any installation requirement. Clientron also provides mounting stands. The desktop stand places the system on the desktop and is the simplest and most common approach. The long arm mount option provides a massive range of movement, can be attached almost anywhere near the counter, and can be moved in multiple directions with ease.

End Users Care About…

Slim and modern design

Powerful internals makes the system tick, but the external parts make the day-to-day use a dream. On the employee side, the tempered glass screen saves minutes every day. The 6H toughness is scratchproof, so wipedowns and everyday swiping on the optional multi-touch display won't leave unsightly scuffs. With cleanliness in mind, the bezel-free design eliminates corners where dust and grime usually build up and make it difficult to clean. Finally, the screen is IP64, so small splashes and the moisture from cleaning will not get into the system and cause havoc with sensitive electronics components.
Customer-facing display

For retail customers, a clear view of the products they've bought is their primary concern. Two different customer-facing display options are available for the Ares755 retail POS to meet varied uses-cases. The basic option is VFD, typically used to display information in text form, such as item description and price during checkout. The fancier option, the preferred customer display option, is the 8" or 9.7" bezel-free display that provides a full-color experience that allows for more detailed information, including images, for a more interactive and exciting customer experience.
