For instance, let's take a quick look at our newest wireless credit card modem made by Sterling Payment Technologies, simply named the "mBox". Made from military grade components and running on the Verizon network, this modem boasts consistanly fast tranaction speeds. In fact, while at a recent tradeshow held inside a convention center, credit card payments were being processed and completed within 2-3 seconds after being swiped.
This opens up viable wireless solutions even in structures with large amounts of concrete or places where the average cell phone coverage is sketchy at best. In many convention centers or large outdoor venues, getting hard lines or internet drops average $10,000 per access point.
The mBox is also equipped another major cost saving option, Online Reporting through Sterling Bridge. Think of all the man-hours it takes to collect reports, balance drawers, enter sales data into an accounting program and calculate final sales totals. With the mBox, running a report on the cash register will also upload all the data to an online web portal for instant access. This makes figuring totals from each register across multiple locations take a fraction of the time. Get a financial summary, or complete breakdown, PLU reports, time reports and more. With all this data available at your fingertips, it can easily be converted into multiple formats for import into your accounting software.
There is also a real-time component that allows you to see sales as they happen. This information can help you stay ahead of potential changes in staffing needs or inventory levels. The best part is all this information without having to leave your desk.
