New cloud-based tablet solution for mobile payments and retail management offers simple and intuitive hardware bundles, pricing and installation service for businesses
TORONTO, July 8, 2015 /CNW/ - Moneris Solutions Corporation ("Moneris"), one of North America's largest processors of debit and credit card payments, today announced the launch of PAYD Pro Plus™ a solution that helps retailers manage sales, inventory and customer profiles from an intuitive, customizable app.
This mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) solution combines robust, cloud-based POS capabilities with the flexibility of the Apple iPad. PAYD Pro Plus helps retailers accept payments anytime and anywhere with easy access to Moneris expertise including advice, on-site installs, training and integrated accessory combinations for a variety of retail environments.
"Retail expectations have really changed. Today, our customers want their business apps to be like consumer apps- easy, intuitive and user-friendly," said Rob Cameron, Chief Product and Marketing Officer at Moneris. "Also, consumers want to pay their way with a card or a tap. With PAYD Pro Plus we provide that balance. Whether businesses are in a single or multi-location operation, this is the simplest way to take advantage of an all-in-one mPOS solution."
PAYD Pro Plus comes a year after the introduction of North America's first mobile debit and credit POS system to accept chip and PIN, PAYD Pro™. Via a Bluetooth-enabled PIN pad developed with Ingenico, PAYD Pro Plus allows retailers to accept payments however their customers want to pay: chip and PIN, contactless, Apple Pay and other mobile wallets and wearables.
"As a retailer of premium chocolate products, it's very important that we effectively manage our inventory to ensure we're stocking the right products customers want and cycling our offerings to maintain variety and quality," said Etienne Gravel at Daniel Le Chocolat Belge. "With PAYD Pro Plus we've found an easy solution that helps us scale and keep business on track - but it certainly helps that our staff and customers love how cool the mobile solution is, too."
With the introduction of PAYD Pro Plus, Moneris has also added new field service capabilities to help merchants get up and running with onsite installation. The Warhol Revisited Gallery in Toronto's prestigious Mink Mile shopping district has already taken advantage of this new service.
"We needed a payment solution that would get guests through lines quickly and efficiently, but also fit the design of our space," said Ron Rivlin, owner of Warhol Revisited Gallery. "PAYD Pro Plus met these expectations and more, especially with on-site installation and support while we were working quickly to launch our gallery."
PAYD Pro Plus customers have several options, from initial set up to 24/7 support:
- Compatible hardware including scanners, cash drawers, printers and stands
- Customization of the PAYD Pro Plus interface for business branding
- Management of product inventory and customer profiles by leveraging the iPad camera to load photos and detailed information
- Access of real-time transaction and batch reporting
- Same-day fund settlement
- 24-hour technical and business support by phone, email or online
- Onsite PAYD Pro Plus installation and training
Entry level packages are aligned to PAYD Pro so existing users can take advantage of new features for no incremental costs provided they have an iPad. New users can get started with a PIN pad for as low as $19.95 per month. With PAYD Pro Plus, merchants can accept a variety of debit and credit cards including, Interac® Debit, Discover®, Visa®, MasterCard® and American Express®.
