Partnering for the Ultimate POS Experience

Apr 18, 2018

We’re excited to announce a partnership with talech that will allow our retail and restaurant merchants to run their suite of POS capabilities right on the Poynt terminal. Our CEO, Osama Bedier, and talech CEO, Irv Henderson, announced the news this morning in their opening keynote address at ETA Transact.

For Poynt merchants, this means that they can download the talech app directly on their Poynt terminal without the need for any additional hardware; talech merchants will also be able to seamlessly add a Poynt terminal to their existing talech POS system, unlocking new payment capabilities like pay-at-table and in-aisle payments.

Some of talech’s most popular features will be included for free via the talech app on Poynt Terminals. For merchants wishing to utilize premium features like syncing to an external display, accessing advanced reporting and analytics, and features like loyalty, order ahead, and gift card capabilities, they have the opportunity to add them to their Poynt experience for a low monthly fee.

When asked what made this partnership really special, both CEOs highlighted ease of adoption and exceptional end-customer experience. According to Osama, “As consumer’s expectations of digital interactions grow, Merchants need their payment terminal to do so much more than just take payments. This partnership allows us to extend awesome integrated capabilities to our retail and restaurant merchants via talech, and sets the standard for future partnerships in other verticals.”

Irv echoed the sentiment, “Our partnership with Poynt is as much about our capabilities as it is theirs - we have long looked at Poynt as an example of a company that suited merchants with everything that they needed in one place, and we think that couldn’t be truer now that talech is available to all Poynt merchants right on their terminal.”

We look forward to see how this latest addition to our ecosystem leads to big wins for our merchants and their customers.
