APRIVA Inc., an innovator in wireless solutions for businesses, has released the new version of its point-of-sale software.
The new version, 1.5.5r, will allow users of the APRIVA POS devices and platform greater flexibility in their daily transactions. The APRIVA POS 1.5.5r upgrade works on both the Motient (DataTAC) and Cingular (Mobitex) wireless networks, and has been certified by the major credit card processing services. The POS software was developed to work with the APRIVA magnetic card readers, which connect to the RIM Blackberry line of wireless devices, and also works with any terminal that is connected to the APRIVA POS network.
“The newest generation of the APRIVA POS gives both the operators in the field and the home offices greater flexibility and control,” said Kevin Hickey, chief executive officer and president, APRIVA Inc.
“From field service representatives repairing appliances in homes to catering services delivering on-site events, anyone that processes credit card transactions remotely can benefit from the APRIVA point-of-sale devices and network.”
New benefits and features include:
— Enhanced Web site management utility — devices can be managed from the merchant Web site to receive detailed reports from the field.
— Customized merchant setup — Web site can be used to update the devices in the field.
— Receipt management on device — customizable receipts to include personalized sayings on the top and bottom of the receipts.
— Stored sale on device — user able to receive authorization at a later time, if out of a connected area, without an offline process.
— Detailed batch reports on device — ability to view the detailed reports on the device, including card type, invoice, operator, totals and transaction types.
