BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - May 9, 2013) - Merchant Warehouse®, a leading innovator of payment technologies and merchant account services, today announced a partnership with LinkPOS, a cutting-edge point of sale (POS) system designed for small businesses. Through this partnership, LinkPOS will offer its customers expanded payment acceptance and mobile commerce functionalities with Merchant Warehouse's Genius™ Customer Engagement Platform™.
Formerly known as Olympus POS, the company prides itself on delivering an iPad® app to small businesses that is comparable to any high-end POS system. The application combines functionality, customization and a user-friendly interface to enhance the look and feel of any small business, while also enhancing productivity. With the Genius integration, LinkPOS can now offer its customers the ability to accept additional payment types, including mobile payment acceptance and integrated coupons, rewards and loyalty programs.
"Having a high-quality POS system is a huge differentiator for small businesses, but realistically, may not be something they can afford. This is exactly who we built our iPad app for," said Steven Walter, LinkPOS. "We're dedicated to delivering an easy-to-use solution for our customers that can be customized to look like it was designed specifically for their store. The Genius integration takes this a step further, opening a world of new opportunities for each of our customers as they explore new payment acceptance technologies and loyalty and rewards programs. We're excited about the Genius integration and look forward to the expanded business opportunities it brings to our customers."
Genius is a software platform that can integrate any payment type, discount or loyalty application, providing merchants with ultimate flexibility to activate the solutions that best support their business needs. Genius is also a PA-DSS verified solution that separates all sensitive data from the POS system, ensuring the protection of transactional data through tokenization and point-to-point encryption.
"When we created Genius, it was important for us that its features and capabilities could be accessible and easily utilized by merchants of all sizes," said Henry Helgeson, CEO, Merchant Warehouse. "Part of its design ensures that merchants have total choice over what payment forms to accept, the flexibility to update or change those selections in near real-time and the scalability to grow with Genius as their business grows."
LinkPOS will be joining Merchant Warehouse at NRA in Chicago, Illinois from May 18-21 at booth #6254.
