The iConnect development team has implemented a new feature in its web and iPad POS app that allows users to set up membership and rental products and services with the ability to automatically bill customers on a recurring basis. This is a major step for iConnect toward providing an enterprise ready application to businesses of varying size and industry.
Rental and membership features have always been an item in the iConnect software roadmap, and the company is excited to finally offer these features to its new and existing customers. iConnect hopes to create a more seamless web, iPhone, and iPad POS experience with these features by eliminating one more external service that customers would have to pay for outside of their POS platform. By offering customers a fully integrated business management solution, iConnect aims to simplify business operations from start to finish.
One possible application for membership and rental features includes giving gyms the opportunity to use iConnect without worrying about manually renewing their members' accounts. The only thing the gym would need to set up is a membership service with a price and an interval at which the price should be charged to the customer. The gym would then make an initial sale of this service to the customer via credit card, and the system would continue to automatically charge that customer's credit card at the interval specified for that membership, as long as the business is using iConnect's integrated merchant services. iConnect is even including options such as the ability to allow rollover of unused membership fees and the ability to set members only prices on certain products and services.
For iConnect's President and Founder, Subodh Gupta, offering business owners a fully integrated way to create, sell, and manage memberships is yet another feature that truly sets the iConnect platform apart from its competition. "We have been working hard at distinguishing ourselves as an enterprise-ready application available to your everyday business owner," states Gupta, "and adding the membership feature is definitely another step in this direction."
Currently, iConnect is offering membership and rental features to users on its Silver, Gold, and Platinum subscription plans, which run $49, $99, and $159 per month respectively. Users on these plans that are signed up for iConnect's web, iPhone, & iPad POS apps can start creating memberships via the app's products and services screen. New businesses can sign up at any time by visiting http://www.iConnectPOS.com — all iConnect accounts receive a 15-day risk free trial.
