Unique 5-in-1 Tablet POS Platform Powers mPOS Opportunities
MONTREAL, May 11, 2016 – AnywhereCommerce, a global payments technology provider, announced that its MePOS 5-in-1 tablet POS platform took first place in the Sandbox 2016 Innovation Competition. Co-sponsored by Southeast Acquirers Association (SEAA) and the Electronics Transactions Association (ETA), the Sandbox 2016 competition occurred May 3 at the SEAA Annual Meeting in Florida.
The MePOS 5-in-1 tablet POS platform brings the power and flexibility of mobile into the brick and mortar environment, with a flexible design that is easily configured for tablet POS, line-busting, pay-at-the-table, self-service and other mobile use cases. The modern design is easily configured to employ a broad range of certified PIN Entry Devices (PED) and tablets operating on Windows, Android, and iOS. MePOS is equipped with an integrated printer, and its single power source powers all necessary POS peripherals, scanners, and cash-drawers. In addition, all exterior panels of the MePOS platform are easily brandable with full-color custom graphics, turning the point of sale into an engaging point of profit.
“We are very proud that the independent investor judges for Sandbox selected the MePOS platform as an award winner from among a broad range of innovative payments solutions,” said William Nichols, president and chief executive officer for AnywhereCommerce. “MePOS embodies the spirit of innovation that the Sandbox awards represent. The solution is a true differentiator for ISOs and ISVs looking to capitalize on the convergence of EMV and tablet POS solutions that is causing merchants everywhere to upgrade their checkout experience.”
“The SEAA is thrilled to have Anywhere Commerce take top prize in the Sandbox16 Innovation Competition,” said Donna Embry, SEAA Board member and Sandbox16 organizer.
Sandbox16 at SEAA extended five finalists the ability to present their innovation to independent investor judges. Prize winners were judged on their 8-minute presentation, the relevance of their innovation to the payments and ISO channel, and the production quality of the solution.
