Moneris is advancing POS payment technology for Canadian merchants. As the following reports, it has chosen an iPad POS system as a centralized business tool targeted to small businesses.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."
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
As a member of Apple's Mobility Partner Program and an Apple Authorized Reseller, Moneris sells Apple products, including the iPad, as part of its hardware offerings. Moneris iPad POS Solutions give businesses a choice of one of three hardware kits depending on their size and scale requirements. Hardware kits include equipment like iPad stands, Apple Mac minis, cash drawers, receipt printers and more.Canadian consumers have chosen to make digital, contactless payments a popular payment method. However, many small businesses have not invested in the latest POS platforms that can fully take advantage of the transaction data that passes through. Now merchants have an opportunity to purchase a low cost system not only for payments, but as a complete feature set of business tools. Even better is the focus on the restaurant and food service vertical that will bring cost savings and staff productivity to the table.
