Auto-Star Announces Certification with Windows Embedded POSReady 7


MEDICINE HAT, ALBERTA – Auto-Star Compusystems, a leading developer of point of sale and retail management software, is pleased to announce the certification of the Star-Plus point of sale system on the 32-bit and 64-bit Windows Embedded POSReady 7 platform.

Windows Embedded POSReady 7 is a flexible operating system optimized for point of sale solutions. The platform utilizes the power of Windows 7 to deliver an attractive and compelling user experience. Key benefits and features of POSReady 7 include:

  • Easy setup and deployment
  • Enhanced data security
  • Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance
  • Added flexibility and reduced costs
  • Familiar Windows 7 technology
  • Multilingual user interface support

“Windows Embedded POSReady 7 will create an enhanced user experience by offering more flexibility and customization for customers and VARs,” said Ivan Long, Director of Operations at Auto-Star. POSReady 7 eliminates the unnecessary components of the operating system, reducing the footprint and management on the POS system. This will result in fewer system attacks, ongoing updates, and store employees opening unneeded applications.

Microsoft recently announced the retirement of Windows XP.  As of April 2014, systems running on Windows XP will no longer be supported or eligible for PCI compliance. Auto-Star strongly encourages all customers to begin upgrading to Windows Embedded POSReady 7 or POS Ready 2009 to ensure continued updates and technical support until 2019.  The Star-Plus solution will continue to be supported when run on full versions of Windows 7 Professional or higher.
