SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--(Cards & Payments Asia 2015) - Bindo, a leading retail technology company that develops innovative iPad point-of-sale (POS) solutions for retailers and restaurants, today announced a partnership with Powa Technologies and APG China. This is a key development for Bindo, as Powa Technologies is a leader in retail commerce and technology hardware; and APG China is a well-known producer of retail industry cash drawers. As part of the agreement, Bindo, Powa Technologies and APG China will offer retailers the unprecedented convenience of an all-in-one POS and hardware solution. The announcement was made by at Cards & Payments Asia 2015, where Powa Technologies is exhibiting in stand B01.
Retailers can transform the way their stores function with the PowaPOS T25, the first tablet-based POS hardware to integrate common retail peripherals, including a 2D barcode scanner and thermal printer, all in one sophisticated, space-saving design. The Bindo/PowaPOS bundle also integrates with the APG cash drawer.
“Our partnership is a direct response to the rising trend of the incorporation of advanced technologies in the retail industry and is the first iPad POS with integrated POS hardware in Asia,” said Ben Wong, VP of Business Development at Bindo. “The iPad POS retail industry is still fairly new. This integration will allow us to transform business for everyday retailers, and leverage design and advanced functionality of PowaPOS by integrating a powerful software solution with the incorporation of APG Cash Drawers, which have been an industry standard for over 35 years.”
Leveraging this new, convenient feature from Bindo’s POS system, businesses and consumers will be able to handle transactions more easily and stay better organized. With the PowaPOS/Bindo bundle, merchants benefit from an advanced hardware solution that complements Bindo’s powerful software technology. Instead of having to use multiple hardware devices and mismatched components, merchants can now have common retail peripherals all in one sophisticated, space saving design. In addition, by running on Bluetooth versus WiFi, merchants will have more stability for printing receipts in low-Internet-coverage retail environments. The new package promises to improve the POS experience and offer Bindo users an even easier and more customized solution. This integration is just another way that Bindo is differentiating from other POS providers.
“Powa’s partnership with an innovative retail company such as Bindo provides retailers in Greater China with an ideal solution for running their businesses,” said Zvi Mitlanski, SVP & GM, Asia Pacific, PowaPOS. “Through this partnership, our company gains a powerful, sleek and advanced POS solution that looks great and functions well with the PowaPOS T25.”
On top of this, Bindo and PowaPOS have also integrated with the Octopus payment terminal, thus becoming the first and only iPad POS system in Hong Kong to have such functionality. The combined POS system will offer merchants the ability to check out customers using the Octopus NFC technology, and to also top up credits for consumers.
This integration is just another way that Bindo is differentiating from other POS providers. Celebrity model and business owner Cara G., Co-Founder of Genie Juicery, recently became one of the first merchants in Hong Kong to start using the Bindo/PowaPOS bundle. As more merchants switch to using Bindo POS, the company hopes to improve the POS experience and offer users a cost-effective and more efficient solution to running their businesses.
Visitors to Cards & Payments Asia 2015, co-located with Retail World Asia, can get a demonstration of the PowaPOS/Bindo solution at Powa Technologies’ stand, B01, on April 22-23 at the Suntec Convention and Exhibition Centre, Singapore.
