Merchant interest in tablet POS systems is huge right now. So much so, that the market has quickly become crowded with multiple solutions trying to replace the cash register with a tablet POS app. But if you look around, all of these solutions are sold directly to merchants by service providers that want to take the ISO or acquirer out of the picture, locking merchants into a single vendor whose hardware may not really be what the merchant needs, and leaving merchants with poorly executed customer service.
On the flipside, there are some companies trying to provide a channel product, but who also sell direct. Instead of meeting a need, they end up competing with their own channel and creating confusion in the market while further undermining the relationship between ISOs and their merchants.
ISOs and acquirers are losing sales because they don’t have a solution built especially for them to sell exclusively through their channel; but, ultimately merchants are losing out because they’re getting a “one size fits all” solution that really doesn’t. ISO/Acquirers need a competitive solution that allows them to add a tablet POS solution to their portfolio—one that offers a seamless transition for merchants that want to move from a simple cash register to a cost-effective business management system.
VeriFone GlobalBay Merchant was launched to change all that. Now ISOs and acquirers can make their customers happy with new innovative tools to easily manage their business.
