Since 1988, Perto S.A. has been providing leading edge value-add technology in commercial and banking automation. The company is part of the Grupo Digicon and exports technology to Latin America, Europe, North America and Asia.
To be competitive in the Brazilian market, Perto wanted to develop a wireless point-of-sale solution that would provide fast operations and ruggedness. The product needed to connect to a 3G network, and fallback to 2G when necessary. It had to be rugged enough for a fast-paced retail environment while supporting extreme conditions like dust, heat and water splash. But it also had to be price competitive. Finally, Perto wanted a solution which could be maintained centrally so that software upgrades could be performed for all devices at once.
