Powa Technologies has announced a partnership between its PowaPOS retail payments platform and iConnect POS software to provide a tablet-based POS solution for m-payments.
The PowaPOS T-Series is the first POS platform that integrates all major tablet platforms, it will include: a high-speed printer, 2D barcode/QR code scanner, cash drawer, EMV payment terminal and multiple expansion ports. iConnect’s iOS tablet software provides merchants with combined services that include: inventory tracking, employee management, multiple language and multi-location support, real-time reporting, CRM, email and text message marketing.
“Outdated, cumbersome legacy and proprietary POS systems simply aren’t meeting the needs of today’s merchants, especially those looking to prepare for the coming EMV transition,” said Jeffrey Dumbrell, CEO, PowaPOS. “With this partnership, PowaPOS and iConnect make it easy to replace those systems and have all the power, sophistication and security of the most advanced integrated POS system on the market.”
“Combined, iConnect and PowaPOS create a unique, even more robust experience for merchants and customers. “Features like the Powa Orientation Sensor, which allows vendors to trigger a different customer facing view when the T-25 is rotated, combined with iConnect’s branding customization, allow merchants to fully configure their own POS experience.” added Dumbrell.
“The traditional payments ecosystem is inefficient and expensive,” said Subodh Gupta, founder and president of iConnect. “With a program designed for ISOs and personalized by merchants, PowaPOS and iConnect POS will deliver a greater value proposition with an out-of-the-box solution that simplifies the demands of running a company. With this powerful partnership, merchants can be up and running in as little as a single day.”
