13 Jan 2014

Handheld POS will Allow Retailers to Say Goodbye to Lines, Terminals and Counters – #EndOfTheLine

NEW YORK, NY — January 13, 2014 — ShopKeep® POS, the cloud-based point of sale platform designed by retailers for retailers, today announced ShopKeep Mobile, a handheld point of sale device that will use Griffin Olli hardware with the ShopKeep POS app.

“This is a complete handheld POS that is connected to the cloud. It’s everything you need to run your store – in your pocket,” said Jason Richelson, Founder & CEO, ShopKeep POS.  “It also removes one of the worst parts of the retail experience for shoppers, which is waiting in line; and creates a more personal customer interaction by removing the counter as a barrier. This is groundbreaking technology that will bring the customer experience you get in the Apple store to small businesses everywhere.”

Designed for the iPod touch, ShopKeep Mobile features an encrypted credit card swiper and high speed laser barcode scanner to ring-up sales right from the showroom floor. Stores from clothing boutiques to specialty retailers can maximize revenue per square footage by removing their counter and providing customers with a better shopping experience.

ShopKeep Mobile also comes with:

  • Full suite of reports, inventory management and QuickBooks® integration via the BackOffice
  • Customer database
  • Emailed receipts
  • Rapid item search
  • Discount by $ or %
  • Ability to turn tax on or off
  • Ability to ring-up ad-hoc sales
  • Printer support
  • Unlimited customer care
  • Offline mode

“This is a real tool for real businesses that also looks good,” said Dean Shortland, Director of Business Development, Griffin Technology. “It is designed by human beings for human beings. People who use iOS devices understand and expect not only a solid user experience but also a solid design aesthetic. Olli breaks the mold of other mobile POS hardware and offers mobile POS with curb appeal.”
