How do you prefer making your payments?

Depending on the society of your origin there's probably a range of opinion with big variations even though there's like 4 commonly accepted ways of changing your money for the service or product you desire.

Cash, checks, debit and credit cards, transferences (programmed or not), there's a few other options but they all came down to the same media... but nevertheless not all people like to pay in each of the options we have; the other side of the coin is who charges you for each thing you want to buy, that system normally has to give all the options possible to clients in order to make them feel comfortable and also avoid the possibility of a problem when a system fails.

So, of all the realities of buying and charging the main one we have is by cash but we have to admit that cash registers are an old system, it doesn’t matter if tech companies are still betting on updating them from software to hardware, they are still a few steps back and it doesn’t seem it wants to change… but thanks to innovations of such promising enterprises and startups born in places like Silicon Valley, we have now a well-known device that could serve up to replace this and give easiness to the whole process.

Cash – Cash – Ipad!

Point of Sale

The POS – Point of Sale – is the final phase of shopping, the time for paying. Here customer and the sales person decide how the payment will be done and then after is finished the cash register will act up. What if I tell you that we could do all of this simply by the use of an iPad? Wouldn’t it result in a faster activity and light resolution instead of buying a machine and paying for a whole system in order to move up your business? Sure, the utility is a main aspect of a store but just think for a second the reality of replacing it as a whole with a tablet. The space your store will have when you get rid of old tech will fresh up your store.

How would it be possible? Simple.

Revel Systems have been working lately in the progression of a great idea, turning Apple products such as iPad or IPhones even, into functional and automatized cash registers. The system is currently called Atlas and is designed to be link to a cash drawer (for common protection of physical money) and the printer for receipts; replacing regular systems and interface with a cloud organization done by Revel Systems itself, of course it has a familiar style in order to not result in a complicated mixture and let users feel comfortable with it.

The programming behind Atlas permits companies to customize and add third party applications and relate it to the system itself; giving range to offer even easier way of payments from distance like Paypal.

For now, Revel Systems is expanding the concept just yet but the future seems full of excellence and innovation, all common marks of Silicon Valley’s investors.
