Customers can walk in, load their baskets, and walk out — all without interfacing with a cashier. In fact, there’s no physical checkout process — not even with a machine-based scanner.

Why You Need an Inventory Management App for Your Business

Posted on Feb 26, 2019
When you launch a store or restaurant, managing inventory is relatively straightforward. As items come and go, you can track everything using nothing more than a simple spreadsheet.  Yet, this inventory management system isn’t sustainable for long:  It’s incredibly time-consuming to track inventory and update records by hand.  You have to “eyeball” when stock is getting low — this can be hit or miss.

PCI Changes: What's New in 2019 and Beyond?

Posted on Jan 15, 2019
Every organization that captures, processes, stores, transmits, or affects credit card data is expected to comply with the security guidelines established by the Payment Card Industry (PCI).  These data security rules apply to multinationals, small shops and nonprofits alike.

Posted on Sep 21, 2018
Weaving payment tools into the applications you build was once seen as a major cost for independent software vendors (ISVs):  You have to invest more development time to integrate payments. Your clients become more exposed to security risk (i.e., fraud). You have to worry about payment-related patches and updates.  While these costs haven’t disappeared, the ability to provide a frictionless payment experience allows you to reach a much larger audience. End-users want turn-key solutions, not patchworks of third-party add-ons.
