As mobility continues to affect the way we live, work and play as consumers, it’s no surprise that retailers and other businesses are going mobile. As is evident with the exhibitions at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
One notable exhibit was PaySaber, a secure, mobile credit card solution for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Best of all, they offer different solutions depending on the size of your company.
For larger businesses, there’s PaySaber POS, which includes a barcode scanner, thermal printer and encrypted card reader all in a light-weight, mobile point of sale (POS) system. In addition to simply taking payments, it’s easy to manage inventory, conduct returns and print receipts or invoices. Businesses will also be able to access real-time reporting and product, inventory and customer databases and more. From there, reports can be made in commonly used programs such as Excel and QuickBooks.
It’s interesting to watch how mobility has and will continue to affect POS solutions. Now, how long will it be until we can all just pay through our cell phones–no credit card needed!
