PayAnywhere iOS App Gets a Performance Boost
Mobile point of sale app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch adds new capabilities that let merchants get paid faster and easier
TROY, Mich. – August 13, 2012 – PayAnywhere (www.payanywhere.com), a leader in mobile point of sale solutions, today announced availability of the newest version of its popular mobile point of sale solution for iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®. The latest update to the PayAnywhere iOS app features boosted performance, enhanced Heat Map features and the ability to process hassle-free refunds in-app for greater transaction flexibility.
“Every feature update to the PayAnywhere app is a direct result of the valuable feedback we receive from our merchants,” said Marc Gardner, CEO of PayAnywhere. “With each release we aim to make enhancements that not only improve the look and feel of the app, but also make getting paid with PayAnywhere an even simpler and smoother experience. The app is packed with all the bells and whistles a merchant needs, coupled with 24/7 customer support, for the most feature-rich mobile POS solution available for merchants of any size.”
The app already delivers PayAnywhere merchants a number of highly sought after features, including landscape mode, the ability to add a custom tip at check out, and compatibility with cash drawers and AirPrint or Star thermal printers. The new version of the PayAnywhere iOS app has been improved with:
- A Performance Boost: A reorganized menu and better detection for Star printers equal an overall performance boost for the app.
- Revamped Heat Maps: PayAnywhere’s enhanced Heat Maps allow you to zoom in and out on regions and view individual or grouped transactions, providing merchants with greater visibility to where their sales are taking place.
- Merged Tip and Signature: Sales transactions are sped up with a new merged tip and signature screen. Customers simply add a tip and sign on a single screen, allowing merchants to help the next customer faster.
- Hassle-free Refunds: PayAnywhere now allows merchants more flexibility to issue refunds for specific items or to adjust the price on particular items from directly within the app.
