Sophitech, one of Latin America’s leading point of sale (POS) software providers has teamed with international commerce specialist Powa Technologies.
Sophitech recently launched its cloud-based POS application for iPad, SkyPOS, which is now available and fully integrated with the intuitive PowaPOS T25, creating a solution that delivers all the power and security of a traditional POS system, combined with the agility of using tablet technology.
This partnership taps into the growing demand from retailers to use tablets to run their businesses due to the mobility, sophistication and cost effectiveness the device offers, particularly for SMEs, which form the backbone of the Mexican economy.
According to the National Institute of Statistics and Geography, there are more than four million businesses in Mexico, 99.8 per cent of which are SMEs. These businesses generate 52 per cent of the GDP. The flexibility of having a POS system on a tablet means they will be able to become more agile, in turn powering growth.
PowaPOS is the first point of sale platform purpose built for tablet-based payments. Its fully integrated design rids merchants of the need for mismatched peripherals and provides industry-leading ease of set-up. Features include a built in thermal printer, 2D QR/barcode scanner, universal tablet mount, orientation sensor, as well as the optional PowaPOS Cash Drawer – all in a compact footprint and powered by a single cord. With its advanced SDK, PowaPOS is the only tablet-based platform to easily integrate with all POS software applications across all operating systems: iOS, Windows and Android, and provide merchants with the option to use their choice of payment processor. The PowaPOS SDK also supports third party payment devices, including NFC/Apple Pay devices, and enables instant integration with PowaTag.
