A POS for Main Street merchants

Product: POS-itivity!

CardWare International developed POS-itivity! with ISOs, merchant level salespeople (MLSs), acquiring banks and payment processors in mind. According to the company, the fully integrated POS system was designed to target Main Street merchants seeking higher-level functionality in their POS systems.

POS-itivity!'s software includes three core modules: retail, hospitality/quick service restaurant (QSR) and fashion. Each module features customizable functions with advanced, real-time reporting capabilities. For example, in the retail module merchants can manage customer loyalty and reward programs, create sales promotions, scan and track inventory, receive alerts when stock items are low, manage employee attendance, and maintain monthly charge accounts.

The hospitality/QSR module allows users to oversee table and bar tab accounts, split checks, enter recipes and link to kitchen video systems. The fashion module, which targets boutique, jewelry, shoe, lingerie and sports stores, offers the added benefits of an eight-layer fashion matrix, along with product activation and deactivation scheduling. Each module reportedly handles employee time and attendance, bar code scanning and printing, and inventory tracking.

On the hardware side, the system includes a processor integrated with a configurable touch-screen, card reader, USB cash drawer and thermal printer. Multiple ports can support PIN debit, Europay/MasterCard/Visa, check imaging, bar code readers and other payment technologies, the company said.

CardWare offers four merchant support levels, priced accordingly. The top level delivers unlimited support, while the most basic level is priced per call. Reseller pricing begins with one of the core modules, with add-on modules available as merchants need them. CardWare noted that its core and add-on modules are available to resellers through a perpetual use license.

Resellers also have the option of selling, renting or leasing the system with or without hardware support. And POS-itivity requires no long-term commitment for its hardware, software or data plans, the company said.

The POS-itivity! system can be white-labeled with marketing materials provided to ISOs and MLSs for private branding. "POS-itivity! will conduct free, neutral-brand merchant education webinars, where resellers invite current or prospective merchants," the company reported. "Also, POS-itivity! will form a reseller group to develop best practices, plus recommend development of value-add modules."
