Bundled software, hardware, installation and concierge services provides businesses with one stop for their POS solution and set-up needs
TORONTO, Aug. 3, 2017 /CNW/ - Moneris Solutions Corporation ("Moneris"), one of Canada's largest processors of debit and credit payments, has introduced a range of complete iPad Point-of-Sale (POS) Solutions to help increase business efficiency for retail and restaurant businesses. Moneris iPad POS Solutions bundle software, hardware and Moneris Installation Services to help businesses get their payment systems up and running quickly. Businesses purchasing an iPad POS Solution also benefit from Moneris Concierge Services, a dedicated point of contact to help ensure a smooth transition to their new solution.
With nearly 80 per cent of consumers owning a smartphone, it has become clear businesses need to keep up with how technology is changing consumer behaviour. Yet, according to a recent Moneris survey, almost half of Canadian small businesses are using standard cash registers with limited functionality to process sales.
"Small businesses in Canada underpin our economy, but there's a reluctance toward adopting newer technology that could actually help their businesses. These businesses need and want help, and we're here to deliver solutions to help them succeed and grow," said Jeff Guthrie, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Moneris. "By working with industry leaders like Apple, we are able to deliver the right tools, services and support to enable better customer experiences and business management capabilities for retailers and restaurateurs."
The right bundle for restaurants and retailers
Businesses can customize their Moneris iPad POS Solution with software that best suits their style of operations, whether they are a small retailer, restaurant, or making the transition from an online store to a physical storefront:
- PAYD Pro Plus® is Moneris' proprietary iPad POS Solution designed for retail environments. It integrates payments with a full suite of retail features, including inventory management and real-time reporting, to offer businesses a complete view of their operations.
- TouchBistro® is an award-winning iPad POS Solution for restaurants and foodservice businesses that helps increase sales, improve customer experience and inform better business decisions.
- The Shopify POS Solution on an iPad allows Shopify ecommerce merchants to easily expand their business to a physical store environment. Moneris is the only payment processor that offers debit and credit card acceptance for Shopify POS with the integrated Moneris iPP320 PIN Pad.
