As the demand for tablet and mobile-based point of sale solutions accelerates across the Asia Pacific region, Powa Technologies today announced that S-Cubism Technologies has become the first Japanese-based POS software provider to complete integration with its PowaPOS tablet-based hardware. The full-featured solution will use its EC-Orange POS for iPad and Windows, and is available from Billing System Corporation, a leading payment gateway and reseller. Billing System Corporation is also a reseller of PowaTag, Powa’s innovative mobile payment enablement application that turns any point of contact into a point of sale.
“Powa has created the most sophisticated and revolutionary fixed tablet point of sale platform available, which will help us serve the growing demand for tablet-based solutions,” said Kenji Hosoda, CTO, S-Cubism Technologies. “The fully integrated hardware and advanced SDK combine to help us create a solution that will easily meet the needs of the Japanese retail marketplace.”
PowaPOS is the first point of sale platform purpose built for tablet-based payments. Its fully integrated design rids merchants of the need for mismatched peripherals and provides industry-leading ease of set-up. Features include a built in thermal printer, 2D QR/barcode scanner, orientation sensor, as well as the optional PowaPOS Cash Drawer – all in a compact footprint and powered by a single cord. With its advanced SDK, PowaPOS is the only tablet-based platform to easily integrate with all POS software applications across all operating systems. The PowaPOS SDK also supports third party payment devices, including NFC/Apple Pay devices, and enables instant integration with PowaTag.
“Powa Technologies’ PowaPOS and PowaTag solutions are truly revolutionary in the retail marketplace today,” said Toshihiko Eda, President & CEO of Billing System Corporation. “The innovative PowaPOS platform is the ideal component to help us deliver a complete POS and payments solution to existing customers, and open up new markets for us in Japan, as many retailers seek a tablet-based solution for the very first time.”
EC-Orange POS is a next generation POS software solution, available for iPad and Windows tablets. Features include payment processing, inventory management, customer relationship management, promotions support, and sales analysis. With more than 4,200 stores across Japan already using EC-Orange POS, S-Cubism is one of the country’s leading POS software providers.
“Powa’s partnerships with Billing System Corporation and S-Cubism Technologies provides retailers in Japan with a fully integrated tablet POS solution to run their businesses, complete with an unmatched ‘out of the box’ hardware experience,” said Zvi Mitlanski, SVP & GM, Asia Pacific, PowaPOS. “With this integration, PowaPOS continues to expand its global footprint, with a significant step forward in providing next generation tablet-based payments to the retail end-user in Japan.”
