SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Powa Technologies today announces a strategic partnership between its PowaPOS division and Merchant e-Solutions, a U.S.-based provider of end-to-end global payment solutions, and a company of the Cielo group. Through this partnership, the two companies will jointly market their complementary POS and payment solutions to help independent software vendors (ISVs) bring their apps to market, focusing particularly on accelerating the adoption of tablet-based payments in the U.S. and Latin America.
“We share Merchant e-Solutions vision for ‘simplifying payments’ – for us, this means providing advanced tablet-based hardware and a single SDK to support POS applications across all three operating systems,” said Jeff Dumbrell, CEO, PowaPOS. “With Merchant e-Solutions global reach and technology infrastructure, this partnership will allow both companies to grow their businesses and provide ISV partners, particularly in the U.S. and Latin America, with leading solutions to get their apps to market faster and easier.”
PowaPOS is the first point of sale platform purpose built for tablet-based payments. It is the only fully integrated design to incorporate all common retail peripherals and support all POS software across all operating systems: iOS, Android and Windows. Through a single cord, the PowaPOS T25 powers a built in thermal printer, 2D scanner, universal tablet mount, orientation sensor, an optional PowaPOS Cash Drawer, and can support third-party payment devices, including NFC-enabled. With its advanced, single API SDK, PowaPOS easily integrates with all POS software applications, as well as PowaTag, Powa Technologies’ innovative mobile commerce enablement app.
“PowaPOS has a unique position in the tablet-based payments market right now. Its fully integrated hardware and universal OS support makes it particularly attractive to POS software developers and to us,” said Tom Bell, CEO, Merchant e-Solutions. “By partnering together, we’ll be able to provide developers with the best payments processing and hardware solutions on the market today.”
