@pos, a firm that specializes in interactive electronic transaction technologies, will be providing Apple’s retail stores with Internet-capable iPOS TC terminals for credit and debit transactions, signature capture and interactive customer display.
Apple, which will
open three new retail stores Nov. 23, is currently installing iPOS TC terminals in each of its locations nationwide. The terminals directly interface with iMacs running a customized point-of-sale application. Customers can swipe their card through the iPOS TC and enter their personal identification number (PIN) for debit payments, sign their name for credit transactions, and see items being purchased.
The iPOS TC terminal and its advanced functionality fits into the image that Apple wishes to provide customers during the Apple Store shopping, according to @pos CEO Llavan Fernando. Apple will also utilize the @pos posPortal color transaction software complete with the Apple look and feel, he added in a statement.
