    May 13, 2019

    Enabling businesses to take payments whenever and wherever they need, mobile POS system is a great solution to reduce queues, drive new sales opportunities and increase the total revenue across all vertical markets including retail, public sector and transportation. All-in-one payment terminals have been recognized as a convenient tool for mobile payments however, with the rising infiltration of smartphones and tablets in business allowing staff to increase productivity and customer engagement, alongside the introduction of the BYOD(Bring Your Own Device) movement in working environments. Mobile payments are often executed by bundle solutions consisting of a host device, payment terminal and receipt printer which has been widely adopted to deliver seamless, fully fledged POS experiences. BIXOLON offers two types of mPOS solutions; the SPP-A200 and their SPP-R215C, benefiting merchants of all sizes from SMBs to large retailers, in terms of portability, ease of development and operational efficiency.
