pcAmerica, a retail and restaurant point of sale (POS) software developer, has announced an agreement to integrate the LevelUp mobile payment and loyalty solution into its Restaurant Pro Express and Cash Register Express POS software.
The agreement gives more than 50,000 restaurants, liquor stores and convenience stores another way to accept mobile payments and market to their customers. The integration will make it easier, faster and more seamless than ever before for merchants using pcAmerica to accept LevelUp transactions.
Just like any other tender type, LevelUp transactions get logged alongside other credit card and cash transactions, making it easier to balance the register at closing. LevelUp’s deep analytics from customer campaigns are also integrated into the merchant’s existing POS, making it much easier to track customer purchase habits and loyalty over time.
David Gosman, CEO, pcAmerica said: “Many of our customers were requesting the LevelUp integration because it makes transactions more seamless, so we were eager to make this happen. Merchants love how LevelUp helps them attract and retain consumers, and we’re open to doing whatever it takes to make the LevelUp experience even better for them.”
“LevelUp believes that integrating with POS providers such as pcAmerica will help us build a truly mainstream mobile payment network,” said Christina Dorobek, VP of partner development at LevelUp.
