Payworks & AffärsIT launch Windows-based POS solution for more than 5,000 merchants

Payworks, the leading Point of Sale payment solution company, today announced the official launch of Payworks for Windows, a gateway integration that enables merchants to accept EMV card payments on Windows-based POS systems.

With Payworks for Windows, millions of stores around the world can now have an integrated, pre-certified POS solution, without the need to change their operating system, or endure certification costs. Besides Windows, Payworks offers easy gateway integration for Android, iOS and Web-based POS solutions.

The first company to use Payworks for Windows is the Swedish POS vendor AffärsIT, by integrating it into its Windows-based, all-included Point of Sale solution ISUPOS Uno. In only one month after Uno was launched, this Windows POS solution has been used across various industries, including many large music festivals and sport events with more than 100,000 visitors.

“Our merchants need a powerful POS solution, and that includes card acceptance”, says Daniel Höglund Werngren, Sales Director of AffärsIT. “By integrating Payworks for Windows, the ISUPOS Uno is now a complete POS solution with everything a business needs to run a better Point of Sale. Uno is intended for both medium-sized and large businesses, so we expect thousands of merchants only in Sweden to use ISUPOS Uno by the end of the year. The solution will also soon be launched in other European countries.”

Payworks for Windows is currently available with two card readers, the versatile Miura M010 covering mobile, counter-top and in-store usage, and the retail-grade Miura M007 intended for high volume environments, with more card readers to come. Integration into Windows-based POS systems is made simple by the Payworks Pay Client for Microsoft.NET. POS vendors using other platforms can integrate easily through the programming language-independent Payworks Pay Protocol.

“We created Payworks for Windows, so hundreds of thousands of merchants everywhere can use the latest card acceptance technology,” says Christian Deger, CEO of Payworks, “and their POS vendors can offer a modern-day, integrated Point of Sale solution, without having to certify. AffärsIT is a prime example of a POS vendor that recognizes the need in the market and offers an all-inclusive POS solution for businesses of every industry and size. Payworks for Windows will be available in all our markets in Europe, the UK and the US.”
