Gap piloting iPod POS systems at Old Navy

image

Gap, Inc.‘s Old Navy chain is piloting Apple’s iPod touch-based Point of Sale (POS) system at some of its retail stores, according to a new report. According to a 9 to 5 Mac report, the system has been rebranded “ZipCheck” for partner use, although it is the same as the “EasyPay” system used in Apple’s retail stores, and not a third-party solution. The ZipCheck system is said to wirelessly print customer’s receipts to stationed printers throughout the retail stores—like at Apple’s retail stores—although some sales associates have apparently been wearing mini-printers on their belts. A Gap spokesman has confirmed the development, saying the company is “piloting Apple’s iPod based POS system” in a “few” Old Navy stores. It’s unclear if Gap has any plans to expand the pilot beyond Old Navy to include stores from its Banana Republic or flagship Gap brands.
