NEW WEST TECHNOLOGIES, PORTLAND, OR (PRWEB) January 12, 2006
New West Technologies, Inc. announced the release of a new mobility software application for retail point-of-sale (POS). Designed as a mobile credit card terminal, Mobile Ranger runs on any Pocket PC platform, including Personal Digital Assistants (PDA’s) and cell phones.
Mobility has become the popular trend for 2006 as giants like Google and Yahoo dive into the fray. Yet leveraging functionality for standard retail applications has previously been an inhibiting factor. Available products integrate hardware and software solutions that are costly and difficult to update. These all-in-one devices are bulky and cumbersome, defying the motivation for a mobile solution in the first place. This deficiency in the marketplace has created a need for tiny technology with dynamic customization capability, allowing a wide range of products to create modular solutions for every retailer’s needs. A renewed cry for mobile automation has increased demand for low cost, dynamic solutions accessible for retailers.
As a light mobile solution that combines the functionality of electronic cash register (ECR) and a credit card terminal, Mobile Ranger offers a variety of features designed to improve operational workflow across all retail vertical markets. Digital signature capture, receipt printing, shortcut keys, hospitality/tips, manual authorizations, and returns top the feature set of this software offering. Credit card authorizations are wirelessly transmitted through secure internet connections and payment processing is handled through eight major credit card processing platforms.
Mobile Ranger provides an elegant, easy-to-use solution for ranged credit card sales, specifically benefiting food delivery, stadium concessions, trade show sales, a traveling sales force, outdoor tent sales, or high traffic stores. The small footprint combined with the versatility of mobility creates an easy solution for many of the challenges retailers face in a rapidly developing environment.
Hardware requirements are simple. Mobile Ranger will run on any device with Pocket PC 2003+ and supports a wide range of wireless receipt printers, magnetic card swipes, and more. Mobile Ranger is fully functional with only a mobile device, either on a PDA or cell phone. However, magnetic card swipes and thermal receipt printers add speed and value to transactions by fully unleashing the capabilities of the solution.
With a complete POS solution costing less than $1,000 and a base system under $600, the low price point of Mobile Ranger makes it an easy choice for retailers.
Mobile Ranger can be purchased through New West Technologies. Information on pricing and additional information can be found at http://www.newestech.com
