Heckler Design Unveils WindFall® PopTop for Star Micronics mPOP™ at Money20/20

The Popular WindFall® Product Line Extends to Fully Support Star Micronics mPOP™ -- A Hybrid Point-of-Sale Solution

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Oct 27, 2015) -  Heckler Design, a made-in-the-USA product design company, today introduced the WindFall® PopTop for Star Micronics mPOP™ at Money20/20. The new hardware solution, designed to support mPOP™ is on display at the Star Micronics booth (1349) at the Money 20/20 expo in Las Vegas.

PopTop for Star Micronics mPOP™ is a powder-coated, steel platform that enables any WindFall® Stand to securely mount and pivot atop the Star Micronics mPOP™. With several color options, and broad support for a variety of popular tablets and software platforms, distributors and independent software vendors can create distinctive and complete mPOS (mobile point of sale) hardware bundles for their customers.

The WindFall® PopTop for Star Micronics mPOP™ was developed out of direct feedback Heckler Design received from shop owners. Many are frequently frustrated with the complexities of their point-of-sale hardware, and Star Micronics mPOP™ eliminates many of these. Shop owners also want the sleek design, color selection, and commercial-grade construction the WindFall® point-of-sale hardware offers.

"Knowing shop owners want simplicity, flexibility and good design, we felt it was important to extend our WindFall® product line to fully embrace the Star Micronics mPOP™," said Dean Heckler, founder and lead designer of Heckler Design. "This combination enables shop owners to curate and assemble a point of purchase that will beautifully compliment their environments."

WindFall® by Heckler Design has become the trusted standard in mPOS tablet stands. Every WindFall® product is designed and manufactured in the USA and assembled by non-profit organizations that provide meaningful employment for individuals with epilepsy and other challenges.

The mPOP™ combines a two-inch thermal receipt printer with "Drop-In and Print" paper loading, and a compact cash drawer with bill and coin slots. For added security, a locking base bracket is included with the mPOP™ to ensure reliable mounting on countertops. Enhancing its functionality, the mPOP™ includes USB ports for charging external devices, optional plug and play barcode scanner.

The WindFall® PopTop will be distributed by BlueStar, and currently on display at the the Star Micronics booth (1349) at Money20/20.
