Jacom – a made-to-measure system

The Challenge

Wuppertal-based IT accessories company Jacom-EDV-Zubehoer supplies kiosks and shops selling magazines, tobacco and lottery tickets with complete cash-register systems. One important function of such systems is the inputting of data. Jacom had been on the lookout for a compact, freel-programmable keyboard for this purpose. They wanted a keyboard that would not only be easy to configure, but also support a variety of operating systems.

The Solution

German producer PrehKeyTec’s MCI 84 keyboard matched Jacom’s requirements exactly. In addition, these keyboards come with a high environmental protection rating, a valuable plus in the retail context they were to be used in.

Uwe Jablonowski, Managing Director of Jacom commented that obtaining the keyboard from PrehKeyTec’s distribution partner EWL Display and Printing Solutions had been perfectly straightforward, and that the delivery lead times had been short.



"The MCI 84 is a very sturdy and reliable keyboard; we haven’t had any problems with it and certainly no complaints.“
