@pos (www.atpos.com) , a leader in secure, interactive electronic transaction technologies, announced that they would be providing the Apple Stores, the retail chain stores of Apple Computer, Inc., with Internet-capable iPOS TC terminals for credit and debit transactions, signature capture and interactive customer display.
Apple, a leading-edge company known for its technical and marketing expertise, is currently installing iPOS TC terminals in each of its Apple retail stores nationwide. The terminals directly interface to Apple’s innovative iMac computer running a customized point-of-sale application. Apple Store 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. Customers have had a positive response as evidenced by postings on Mac user Web sites about the new devices. The iPOS TC terminal and its advanced functionality fits into the image that Apple wishes to provide customers during the Apple Store shopping experience. Apple will also utilize the @pos posPortal color transaction software complete with the Apple look and feel.
The @pos devices are located in all of Apple’s retail stores nationwide. The first 2 stores opened May 19, 2001, and currently there are 16 more stores open, with more coming in the future.
“The @pos iPOS TC terminal allows Apple to really engage its customers,” said Llavan Fernando, Chief Executive Officer for @pos. “I am very pleased that innovative technology leaders such as Apple selected the state-of-the-art terminal for their point-of-sale. With the iPOS TC, Apple can display colorful advertisements and promotions via the Internet and at the same time, send transaction data for processing as well as capture digital signatures. The device fits the way they have always liked to communicate with their customers, colorful and bold.”
