The partnership breaks the mold of the traditional distributor/vendor model, and streamlines sales and operations for mPOS companies
Heckler Design, a leader in mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) hardware, and POS Portal, a leading point-of-sale distributor, have partnered to pioneer a solution that will deliver a comprehensive set of services and hardware to mPOS software developers and resellers, including Heckler’s patented WindFall Stand and WindFall Cash Drawer – the world's smallest cash drawer with patented till.
The unique partnership sets a precedence in the point-of-sale market, as it is the first time a hardware manufacturer and distributor have joined forces to offer a cohesive end-to-end service. The POS Portal and Heckler Design partnership enables faster mPOS adoption by creating immediate access to best-in-class hardware, easy merchant ordering and complete deployment services.
Through the partnership, independent software vendors (ISVs), payments processors and value added resellers (VARs) will have access to POS Portal’s complete suite of services, which includes co-branded online ordering, one-stop sourcing, lease offers, and same-day merchant direct shipping. This turnkey solution allows merchant customers access to complete hardware support and a unified customer care experience. With access to Apple iPads and other tablets, alongside Heckler Design’s full suite of popular mPOS hardware, merchants can easily obtain a complete mPOS hardware bundle.
“This type of solution is a first for the point-of-sale market that has traditionally operated on old-school methods that simply aren’t working for today’s fast-changing mPOS market,” said Dean Heckler, founder of Heckler Design. “This industry needs distributors and manufacturers willing to do things that haven’t been done before. This first-of-its-kind solution will enable ISV’s to excel in the highly competitive and rapidly growing mPOS market.
The partnership will also enable software VAR's to develop exclusive, branded, custom hardware by Heckler Design while taking advantage of the distribution and leasing benefits POS Portal has to offer.
“We want to enable our partners to easily get hardware into the hands of merchants, so merchants can more quickly enjoy use of the partners’ products,” said Buzz Stryker, CEO of POS Portal. “Strategic partnerships with leading manufacturers like Heckler Design mean more value to ISVs and merchants. Merchants want good looking products on their counter, and Heckler Design products fill that need.”
