Tailwind Solutions is a Scottish-based company specialising in retail Point of Sale (POS) with particular expertise in the card payments market. The company designs and manufactures fittings to secure a card reader securely in position and at the retail check-out.
Founders, Garry Knox and Mark Stewart both came from senior positions within Ingenico and founded Tailwind Solutions to address retailers’ needs for a more satisfactory way of mounting their POS equipment.
Tailwind’s unique approach to the design of card readers mountings is based on their intimate understanding of how card readers are used in different selling environments. The priorities in Tailwind’s designs are: to work with the technology the retailers already use, to enable customers to key their PIN comfortably and conveniently, and to present a stylish appearance that suits the fast-moving retail environment.
Tailwind’s family of mounting solutions, which are designed to be the best in terms of materials, aesthetics and ergonomics, are called Flexipole.
Within a year of production parts being available, Tailwind was shipping thousands of units from Scotland to customers worldwide. Today many of the world’s most recognised retail brands trust Tailwind products to support their Chip and PIN devices. Since 2009, tens of thousands of devices have been installed globally and are in continuous use in high volume environments such as fast food, fuel forecourts, multi-lane retail and ticketing.
