Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 29, 2011
Today, instead of standing in a checkout line, a customer in a Teamwork Retail store may have their purchases rung up on an iPad right out on the floor... The phrase “Let me check our stock and I’ll be back in a few minutes,” has been eliminated from the vocabulary of sales clerks who are lucky enough to use Teamwork Retail’s iPad POS software.
Not only is the store’s inventory a couple of taps away but Teamwork on the iPad y can also add a new customer, give a discount, and take and process payments and email a receipt.
With a couple of taps, Teamwork brings up any inventory in the store and also shows items available in all other stores in the chain. Teamwork Retail not only manages inventory, purchasing, receiving, analytics and management reporting as well. All of this from the cloud and yes, it’s also an iPad POS terminal for accepting credit cards. Merchants now have the ability to create new invoices, scan products, enter customer information and perform inventory lookups at the front counter or away from it. And since Paymentsite is packaged into the software, a merchant can process payments anywhere, accept signatures on-screen, and email or wirelessly print receipts.
Maas Global and Teamwork Retail are pleased to announce the development of a strategic partnership where each company is focused on their core strengths to provide the most feature rich store management and payment acceptance system in the specialty retail market segment.
Market research shows that over half of the specialty retailers in the US are looking to deploy handheld POS devices to replace many of their standard POS systems, so Teamwork Retail is poised for fast growth. With this kind of growth potential, Teamwork Retail needed a payments partner that was both innovative and dependable. They turned to Maas Global Solutions.
“Maas Global’s Paymentsite Gateway offers our customers a robust and dependable connection to their payment processor,” said Teamwork Retail President Michael Mauerer. “Another key concern for today’s retailers is security and compliance with all the Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards. The Paymentsite Gateway handles that beautifully.”
In fact, Maas Global’s Paymentsite is the payment engine behind many software applications. The Paymentsite Application Programming Interface or “API” has proven to be very easy for development shops to work with.
“Maas Global is focused on making it easy for software developers to integrate payments into their applications,” said Troy Maas, CEO of Maas Global Solutions. Troy went on to state, “Our strategy for having dedicated resources to help software developers integrate to the Paymentsite Platform has proven to be a great success.” Maas Global understands that IT organizations require advanced technology, reliability and availability, capacity and scalability, performance, security, flexibility and affordability.
As for retailers, Teamwork Retail believes that a “new technology inflection point” has arrived and this has been caused by the “maturity of cloud computing, mobile technologies and open access to transactions payment networks”. It’s no secret that business software is rapidly shifting from premise-based software licenses to cloud-based software services. Both the Teamwork Retail software and the Paymentsite Payment Gateway are cloud-based systems whose many advantages include the elimination of on-site IT infrastructure and their related costs.
