Computop Delivers Traditional POS Alternative with Cloud POS Interface
Bamberg, November 2, 2022 – Global payment service provider, Computop, has today announced the launch of its new Cloud POS Interface, a solution that will allow retailers to operate card terminals from any web-based ERP, store, or POS system through the Computop Paygate.
Ideal for physical stores and operations with multiple locations or checkout points, Computop Cloud POS is a modern, flexible interface enabling retailers to connect to POS terminals via the cloud and eliminating the need for the ZVT/OPI interface in the cash register to facilitate card payments.
Computop Paygate transfers payment requests to a cloud-based terminal server which identifies and addresses the correct terminal. This means that while the terminal can still reside in the same local network as the initiator system, the transaction process technically will no longer be triggered by the cashier system software, but instead by the terminal server at Computop.
Cloud POS also enables the terminals to be operated via a SIM card. On occasions when a terminal is not connected to Cloud POS through a LAN or WiFi, retailers can instead use a SIM card to create a connection to the cashier system, giving them greater flexibility to handle payments.
“There are immediate benefits for retailers in terms of the savings they can make on purchasing and maintaining traditional POS interfaces,” said Ralf Gladis, CEO at Computop. “But in addition to this, Cloud POS is highly scalable which means that it suits fast growing omnichannel-based, customer-facing services that are location-independent.”
With the rapid growth in pop-up stores and doorstep deliveries, companies are looking for payment solutions that support mobile use cases, as well as faster and more flexible point of sale in established stores. Computop Cloud POS is also ideal to support self-service sales, such as in museums, event locations or at tourist information centers.
Computop Cloud POS is available now to larger retail customers and can be integrated directly with logistics enterprises to enable a ‘pay on delivery’ service.
