Online PR News – 02-October-2013 – Orlando, FL – PengPod is pleased to announce a strategic marketing partnership with ViewTouch, inventors of the first graphical Point of Sale software back in 1986. ViewTouch has long been supporters of Linux and take full advantage of open source software to keep their register systems both feature rich and secure. ViewTouch contacted PengPod with this offer for two reasons. Both Companies share the belief that tablets should be able to run unrestricted operating systems. ViewTouch also worked with PengPod's first generation devices and want to help make the next generation PengPod 1040 a reality.
PengPod is able to offer 100 PengPod 1040s preinstalled with ViewTouch POS software for a contribution of $495. Normally this system would cost $995 for the software license and $995 for the initial hardware. The software does require a monthly use, support and training fee of $29 to be enabled, typically this fee would be $79 but ViewTouch has offered to discount that as well. This is a great chance to support free software and acquire a high quality, commercial restaurant POS system for less than $500 thanks to ViewTouch and the power of an open system from PengPod. PengPod is currently crowd funding the PengPod 1040 tablet on indiegogo.com here http://igg.me/at/pengpod.
