POSDATA announced today that it will market Hypercom Corporation’s SmartPayments EasyRetail product to Independent Sales Organizations, acquirers and value-added resellers providing Tier 1 integrated payment functionality to Tier 3 and 4 merchants.
SmartPayments EasyRetail features Hypercom’s innovative Optimum L4150 and L4250 multi-lane terminals, IP enabled with or without integrated contactless payment and PC-based SmartPayments electronic payment processing software. The product combines in one easy-to-install, “plug and play” package all of the components required for a small retailer to begin conducting and accepting electronic payments within minutes.
The product also provides the ability to support integrated plug-ins for Microsoft’s Retail Management System (RMS) and Intuit’s QuickBooks accounting packages and is Class B certified with many processors. It also comes with free help desk support for the first month, and a competitive annual help desk cost thereafter.
Dick Bloom, senior director, payment terminal sales and service of POSDATA states “This bundled solution is designed to be a perfect fit for the tier 4 retail market that our channel partners specialize in. With POSDATA’s extensive background in working with customers and developers throughout the integrated terminal world, our ISOs will easily grasp the value of a kitted, customer facing, contactless solution for their merchants and will for the first time be able to sell and support a solution that historically was meant only for big box stores. This is a solution whose time has come.”
“The SmartPayments EasyRetail Solution gives smaller merchants the ability to quickly and easily offer their customers the same payment speed, security and convenience at the checkout counter that the many larger, multi-lane retailers deliver today. Adding contactless to this product speeds the checkout line, boosts the merchant’s profit line and adds another layer of security to an already highly secure product,” said Rod Hometh, senior vice president, multilane sales, Hypercom Corporation.
SmartPayments EasyRetail is available now for shipment globally.
