PRINCETON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Heartland Payment Systems (NYSE:HPY), one of the nation’s largest payment processors, today announced it is collaborating with emaginePOS to provide restaurants with emaginePOS’ cloud-based point-of-sale (POS) software and Heartland credit/debit card data payment processing solution.
Operating under the auspices of Heartland Commerce, Heartland is helping small- to mid-size businesses (SMBs), like restaurants and retailers, to use integrated point-of-sale technology to enhance their business operations. Heartland has achieved meaningful progress in its plans to integrate its point-of-sale technologies with its industry-leading Heartland Secure™ and Heartland Out-of-Scope solutions for the benefit of many POS dealers and SMBs.
- By combining emaginePOS’ cloud-based POS and Heartland’s highly secure payment processing solutions, this collaboration gives restaurants the flexibility to seamlessly accept payments through an integrated POS system and cloud based platform.
- Unique in the crowded field of cloud-based solutions, emaginePOS runs on virtually any hardware platform, allowing restaurant operators to utilize conventional Microsoft Windows® touchscreen workstations, as well as iPads, Android and Windows tablets.
- Heartland and emaginePOS will showcase their combined solution at RetailNOW 2015, a trade show hosted by the Retail Solutions Providers Association today through Aug. 5, 2015 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
Robert O. Carr, chairman and CEO, Heartland
“Heartland offers an open payments processing platform and smart software developers, such as emaginePOS, like the way we do business. They also believe in our Merchant Bill of Rights and like to partner with us. The POS has become more than a point of interaction for payments. It is often the brain that collects the information to run the business and support all of the back office functions as well. This is the beauty of our Heartland Commerce business model.”
Marshall Miller, president and CEO, emaginePOS
“emaginePOS was founded to provide a cost-effective alternative for restaurant operators who need a full-featured POS and business intelligence solution to replace their aging Windows-based systems. We recognized that POS software technology developed in the 80s could not meet today’s complex business requirements – particularly for multi-unit operators. Once touted as a revolutionary business solution, the touchscreen point-of-sale system with integrated payment processing has become one of the restaurant industry’s most critical business problems.”
“Our mission, in partnership with Heartland, is to solve that problem by providing a robust platform-independent POS solution. Like Heartland, we believe our success depends on our reputation of being honest and transparent in all of our business dealings. We endorse Heartland’s Merchant Bill of Rights, which is another example of the way in which Heartland and emaginePOS are working together to help small businesses prosper.”

emaginePOS is not your average tech startup. Founded in 2012 by CEO and President Marshall Miller, the company remains self-funded, thus avoiding the potential pitfalls of relinquishing control to Wall Street venture capitalists. Miller wasn’t new to restaurant technology, having been involved in several successful ventures as founder and lead software architect. His experiences in these previous ventures taught him that the freedom to think independently to build products that solve real business problems was more important than fancy offices and big cash infusions. As a result, the company has been able to grow its client base rapidly, achieve profitability and provide superior service without adding needless overhead to its P&L or costs to its clients.
Unlike many of the restaurant POS solutions hitting the market today, emaginePOS is designed to run on virtually any current hardware platform, allowing clients to utilize existing hardware components and take advantage of lower-cost PCs and tablets. And like most well-known POS brands, emaginePOS has all the key features and functions operators have come to expect. But unlike conventional Windows POS software, emaginePOS can be programmed in a few hours then setup and installed in minutes – using the credit card processor of the client’s choice. This combination of features, flexibility and economy is a welcome change for restaurateurs who have been through multiple cycles of POS purchases and upgrades.
