Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 05, 2014
Payment technologies leader, Merchant Warehouse®, and top retail technology reseller, One Step Retail Solutions, today announced the receipt of the Innovative Solution Award for Best Partnership by the Retail Solutions Providers Association (RSPA) and Vertical Systems Reseller (VSR) Magazine. This award honors both companies for bringing Merchant Warehouse’s Genius™ Customer Engagement Platform™ to One Step Retail Solutions’ retail customers.
Out of over 100 submissions, six winners were selected for the 2014 Innovation Solution Awards. The Best Partnership award recognizes two technology companies that work together to introduce a new solution, and in doing so, change and improve businesses and the industry as a whole.
One Step Retail Solutions is the top retail technology value added reseller in the US, serving small businesses ranging in size from five to 500 stores. When One Step Retail Solutions found itself in need of a POS solution that could grow and change with its customers, the company turned to Merchant Warehouse’s Genius Customer Engagement Platform for a holistic, simple and flexible software solution, capable of accommodating current and future payment options.
The Genius platform provides One Step Retail Solutions’ customers with acceptance of every payment type, from chip and PIN to mobile wallets and other mobile payment technologies, including NFC, EMV and QR/2D barcodes, as well as retailer loyalty and reward programs. Genius’ easy-to-use interface creates a positive experience for all parties involved at the point-of-sale, while the ability to meet PCI requirements lowers the risk of exposure for One Step Retail Solutions’ customers. One Step Retail Solutions initially offered Genius through POS software developer Retail Pro International, and now offers Genius through LightSpeed and Teamwork Retail POS applications as well.
“Winning this award demonstrates how a collaboration between two companies can create innovative and ground-breaking solutions,” said Scott Kreisberg, CEO, One Step Retail Solutions. “We are thrilled to see how the Genius platform will support retailers in becoming more relevant with their customers.”
“At Merchant Warehouse, we’re always looking for the best companies to partner with us and provide customers with a seamless experience at the point-of-sale,” said Henry Helgeson, CEO, Merchant Warehouse. “We’re honored to be recognized by the RSPA and VSR Magazine for our partnership with One Step Retail Solutions, and are excited to work together for many years to come.”
Since 2008, RSPA and VSR Magazine have teamed up annually at the RetailNOW conference for the Innovative Solutions Awards to acknowledge innovative companies that helped improve businesses. “We realized there was a need for this type of award because there were not any honors given to solution providers in the industry,” said George Koroneos, Editor in Chief, VSR Magazine.
