ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As small to mid-sized businesses look to upgrade their outdated POS solutions to meet consumer demand for anywhere, anytime commerce, as well as the coming EMV conversion, PowaPOS is showcasing its successful partnerships with many of the world’s leading independent software vendors (ISVs) and other industry leaders at RetailNow 2015. Almost a dozen ISVs are showcasing their POS applications on the PowaPOS T25 in the Powa Technologies’ booth, #941, while many more companies feature the T25 in their own booths. These companies and more have chosen to partner with PowaPOS because of its unique combination of universal OS, customizable payment device support, ease of SDK integration, and unmatched out-of-the box experience.
PowaPOS is the first point of sale platform purpose built for tablet-based payments. Its fully integrated design rids merchants of the need for mismatched peripherals and provides industry-leading ease of set-up. Features include a built in thermal printer, 2D barcode scanner, universal tablet mount, orientation sensor, USB ports, as well as the optional PowaPOS Cash Drawer – all in a sophisticated, compact form factor and powered by a single cord. With its advanced SDK, PowaPOS is the only tablet-based platform to easily integrate with all POS software applications across all operating systems: iOS, Windows and Android, and is the first to provide merchants with the option to use their choice of payment processor.
“With hundreds of ISVs creating powerful, cloud-based point-of-sale applications that can fit merchants’ specific needs, our focus is on creating best-in-class hardware,” said Jeff Dumbrell, CEO, PowaPOS. “By partnering with - and not competing against – our partners, we can accelerate the adoption of tablet-based payments by creating a true ‘plug and pay’ solution, with no strings attached.”
The following ISV partners will be showcasing their software solutions on the PowaPOS T25 in the Powa Technologies booth, #941:
- B2B Soft
- iConnect POS
- Quickswipe, powered by Bluefin
- Restaurant Manager by ASI
Because PowaPOS was designed to work with any operating system and any mobile or tablet-based POS application, ISV reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. In the short time since the introduction of the PowaPOS SDK, more than 50 ISVs across the globe have successfully integrated their applications. The PowaPOS SDK also supports third party payment devices, including NFC, and enables instant integration with PowaTag, Powa Technologies’ innovative mobile commerce app. At RetailNow, PowaPOS will introduce an expanded array of customer-facing payment device mounts for the T25, providing merchants with support for third-party payment devices from Verifone, Ingenico and Pax, as well as an iPad mini display.
“To have a viable tablet POS solution you need to be able to support multiple payment terminals, running different payment applications and talking to multiple payment processors. Our design solves the EMV piece at the same time, creating a seamless payments system that covers PCI and EMV compliance, and also supports the growing demand for NFC,” continued Dumbrell.
