ShopKeep POS Launches New Solution to Help Minimize Customer Wait Time

Thumbnail image for ShopkeepPOSLogo.jpg

Yesterday iPad point of sale system, ShopKeep POS, announced a new solution for small businesses to minimize time customers spend waiting in line.

This system, called the iPad Mini Register, uses the MagTek uDynamo payment dongle (pictured below). The iPad Mini Register grants mobility, which enables store employees to bring the cash register to the customer by walking down the line, ringing up orders, and accepting credit card payments.

After the transaction, the order is printed to the kitchen and customers can pick up their order at the counter. A paperless receipt system emails the receipt to the customer.

The solution is available to merchants for $49 per month.

New York-based startup recently sent us some stats:

    • More than 3,500 active customers
    • Processes over $300M in transactions annually
    • Number of employees doubled in the last six months
