Amway Implements Advantech Interactive Kiosks and Intelligent POS Systems
Currently ranked 29th on Forbes’ “America’s Largest Private Companies” list, Amway uses a multi-level marketing model to sell health, beauty, and home care products in various countries. In an effort to offer a truly unique customer shopping experience, Amway planned to build a customer experience center equipped with various interactive “experience kiosks”, such as makeup kiosks and body detection kiosks, that would provide an engaging one-stop shopping environment. Because this would be the first Amway customer experience center, the ability to provide prompt and satisfying service was the company’s most significant concern. To support its vision of providing integrated online and offline services, Amway required reliable, high-performance computing terminals to serve as interactive kiosks and point-of-sale (POS) systems. After evaluating several options, Amway selected Advantech to provide a comprehensive solution capable of supporting diverse applications. Advantech provided its UTC-510 industrial-grade all-in-one touch computers, for use as interactive kiosks and digital signage displays, and its UPOS-510 POS system.

UTC-510 is powered by an Intel® Celeron® J1900 processor that delivers high-performance
computing to ensure reliable and prompt customer service. The system’s compact
design allows UTC-510 to be mounted on a wall or installed in places with
limited space. For this project, Amway installed UTC-510D terminals with PCAP
touchscreen to serve as interactive kiosks. Equipped with diverse I/O for
integrating peripherals such as an RFID reader or barcode scanner according to
specific applications, UTC-510 is the ideal solution for Amway.
Digital Signage Display

digital signage display. Featuring a 10.1” LCD display with 1280 x 800
resolution and 350-nit luminance, UTC-510 offers crisp, high-quality imaging
for displaying diverse multimedia content. The system’s industrial-grade design
ensures reliable operation and efficient processing for long-duration usage.
Intelligent POS System
with an Intel® Core™ i3-6100U processor and easy-access USB ports, Advantech’s UPOS-510 provides a powerful POS computing
platform for frequent-use applications. In addition to a compact design that
allows installation in environments with limited space, UPOS-510 features an attractive exterior that

ultimately enhance the company’s brand image.
