Moneris iPad POS Solutions bundle software, hardware and Moneris' installation services to help businesses get their payment systems up and running quickly, the company said in a news release. Businesses purchasing an iPad POS also benefit from Moneris Concierge Services, a dedicated point of contact to help ensure a smooth transition to their new solution.
With nearly 80 per cent of consumers owning a smartphone, it has become clear businesses need to keep up with how technology is changing consumer behaviour. Yet, according to a recent Moneris survey, almost half of Canadian small businesses are using standard cash registers with limited functionality to process sales.
"Small businesses in Canada underpin our economy, but there's a reluctance toward adopting newer technology that could actually help their businesses. These businesses need and want help, and we're here to deliver solutions to help them succeed and grow," said Jeff Guthrie, chief sales and marketing officer for Moneris. "By working with industry leaders like Apple, we are able to deliver the right tools, services and support to enable better customer experiences and business management capabilities for retailers and restaurateurs."
Businesses can customize their Moneris iPad POS Solution with software that best suits their style of operations. TouchBistro is designed for restaurants and food-service businesses.
A basic restaurant bundle with similar components starts at $2,300. This includes Quick Service Kit, monthly TouchBistro solo software license fee, mandatory software training, monthly PIN Pad rental fee, standard Installation and a 32 GB iPad.
By comparison, Moneris says, the average starting cost of a computer-based POS system and software licensing can cost as much as $10,000.
