The wireless transactions and gateway services specialist Apriva has announced a new partnership with POS on Cloud that, it says, will give its retail payment technology a boost.
Apriva’s existing software and POS devices can be integrated into customers’ systems to allow them to process card payments and loyalty schemes. Their clients include restaurants and retail outlets.
The partnership, say the two companies, will build on Apriva’s current offering by extending it to backend functions such as inventory management, accounting and email marketing, all of which will be stored in the cloud.
“Cloud technologies are pervasive, and many restaurants and retailers already have or are considering a cloud POS solution because of the efficiency and business value they offer,” said Stacey Finley Tappin, Apriva’s senior vice president for North America sales and marketing communications, in a statement. “Our relationship with POS on Cloud will enable us to provide our channel with a state-of-the-art, cloud-based POS solution that fully integrates with our Gateway.”
Dr. Sunny Dronawat, CEO of POS on Cloud, added: “We look forward to working closely with Apriva to meet merchant and reseller needs, as well as expanding the relationship beyond the restaurant and retail verticals in the future.”
