Mobile commerce leader will introduce the unique ‘5-in-1’ platform at RetailNow® 2015 August 2-5 in Orlando
MONTREAL, July 27, 2015 – AnywhereCommerce, a global payments solutions provider, announced the availability of its MePOS 5-in-1 Tablet solution, a made-for-purpose platform that delivers unmatched flexibility for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and merchants that are reimagining customer engagement and payment acceptance services. AnywhereCommerce will formally introduce the new platform at the RetailNow 2015 Expo, scheduled for August 2-5 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. AnywhereCommerce will be located at booth 204 throughout the exhibition.
Supporting a broad range of retail use cases, the MePOS unit can be easily configured for cashier operation, as a self-service kiosk, or as a mobile point-of-sale (POS) system. It is compatible with iOS, Android and Windows operating systems, and integrates with a broad range of commercial tablets, tablet POS applications, and PIN Entry Devices (PED). In addition, the MePOS products can be branded to suit merchant service provider and retailer needs.
Mobile technology—together with the emergence of EMV and NFC payments—is driving the adoption of tablet POS systems. As merchants work to adapt to these changes, many are also using it as an opportunity to reevaluate their infrastructure for interacting with customers in the mobile environment,” said William Nichols, president and chief executive officer for AnywhereCommerce. “Our MePOS platform not only gives merchants the flexibility to employ a variety of payment options and maximize a mobile workforce, it also is designed for those businesses interested in repositioning the POS as a vehicle to better engage with customers through promotional branding and marketing, loyalty, and other compelling value added services. The MePOS platform represents a dynamic shift in the ways that POS technology can be leveraged to reshape how merchants use the point-of-sale.”
The modular design of MePOS incorporates a tablet and PIN pad (PED) stands, an integrated receipt printer, and connectivity for all peripheral devices, such as barcode scanners and cash drawers. It powers all connected devices through one universal power supply, eliminating cable clutter. Its intelligent self-diagnostic system interconnects attached devices and performs ‘condition-based monitoring’ to ensure correct operation and system integrity. MePOS is compatible with most tablet POS software solutions and supports EMV-certified payment devices from AnywhereCommerce, as well as devices from many of the leading traditional manufacturers. Integration is accomplished via intuitive APIs and SDKs to ensure rapid time to market.
The MePOS base unit features removable exterior panels can easily be replaced with affordable customized panels that feature logos, branding graphics or special promotional advertising, changing the point of sale into a point of promotion. This unique feature can be sold to advertisers, resulting in an almost immediate ROI for the system.
