POSLIGNE® reveals its colourful lines at the Hergé Museum

(PresseBox) (Lisses & Runcorn, ) the Hergé Museum, a masterpiece of contemporary architecture by Christian de Portzamparc, has opted to equip its till and cash desk areas with the AURES Group's stylish and colourful POSLIGNE® Odyssé EPoS terminals, complete with matching ODP 200 receipt printers and PS 50 barcode readers.

Located at Louvain-La-Neuve near Brussels, Belgium, the 3,600 square metre exhibition venue is dedicated to the legendary Belgian cartoonist and his creations (The adventures of Tintin and Snowy, Quick & Flupke, Jo, Zette and Jocko, Totor and many more).

"The cash desk terminals designed by AURES are in complete harmony with the atmosphere and style of the Hergé Museum," explained Laurent de Froberville, the museum's Director. "The POSLIGNE® equipment's exclusive and contemporary lines, combined with their interchangeable colour clips, capture the spirit of the various areas within the museum perfectly," he concluded.

- Odyssé* Packs featuring a graphite base and 'tonic orange' clips have been deployed in the Museum's Reception and Gift Shop areas (see photos).

- For the "Petit Vingtième" Café-Restaurant (named after the supplement to the newspaper "le Vingtième Siècle", in which Tintin's adventures first appeared in January 1929), Odyssé Packs with a graphite base and

"carmine red " clips have been chosen, blending in perfectly with the environment and its visual identity.

*The Odyssé Pack includes the cash desk terminal of the same name, the ODP 200 thermal receipt printer and the PS 50 barcode scanner, all in coordinated colours.

The POSLIGNE® terminals and peripherals equipping the Hergé Museum use till and ticketing software developed by IREC (
