“We are honored to be recognized as a finalist in the Best Cash Innovation Category,” stated Mark Olson, President of APG Cash Drawer. “Retailers are looking for the latest technologies that can improve the overall customer experience – mPOS or mobile POS is such a technology. Our Wireless NetPRO® cash drawer is the 1st of its kind and it’s able to communicate with any of today’s tablet based POS systems. Going mobile doesn’t eliminate the cash transaction, it introduces security concerns. NetPRO® cash drawers have the ability to help retailers solve these issues through proximity claiming and alert features, which can activate security cameras, time and date stamp security video recordings, and broadcast alert messages to a store manager’s mobile devices.”

The Innovation Project 2013 delegates include senior executives and elite innovators from every aspect of the payments and broader commerce ecosystem, worldwide-- along with the CEOs of the most innovative startups in the space. The Innovation Project is hosted by PYMNTS.com, a leading source of news and content on “what’s next” in payments innovation. On March 20th and 21st the greatest minds in commerce and payments will come together to discuss and challenge the conventional wisdom around what it will take to get merchants and consumers to adopt new ways to shop and pay. The Innovator Awards, given to 15 of the industry’s top innovators, will be emceed by B.J.
