A multi-channel payment experience allowing retailers to stay on-top
For retailers, today’s multichannel world can be a challenge. Firstly, you have to deal with multiple credit and debit card brands and cash payments, as well as new technologies such as QR code ePayments and mobile wallets. You have to master and engage with the multi-faceted ecosystem of merchant services and payment processors. Your Point-of-Sale (POS) devices must cater for multiple payment methods, which requires an investment in technology to enable those payments.
Retailers face big challenges, including multiplicity of payment methods, integration of POS and backend technologies, offering service in rural and distributed locations with poor connectivity, seamlessly merging digital and in-store payment experiences. To mention some. All bundled together with the need to provide a best-in-class customer experience. Our Convego® Pearl loyalty solution can enable retailers to meet these challenges and deliver a full-featured, multi-channel in-store payment system at scale. It puts your brand in front of the customer and creates stickiness, and the same time allowing you to evolve new revenue streams!
