Harbortouch a division of United Bank Card, Inc. Launches Free Point-of-Sale System Program
Harbortouch has announced a new program that is sure to change the way that many restaurants and retail businesses think of point-of-sale (POS) systems. Modern POS systems offer countless time and money saving features for business owners, but the significant cost is often prohibitive for small to mid-sized restaurants and retail stores. UBC’s POS system division, Harbortouch, has launched an unprecedented “free” POS system initiative to allow these merchants to take advantage of the same benefits as the national restaurant chains and major retailers.
United Bank Card CEO Jared Isaacman states, “Large national restaurant chains and big-box retail stores have been taking advantage of this technology for years because of the myriad benefits it offers. At a time when many small and mid-sized businesses are struggling, we are providing these benefits that many business owners may not have previously been able to afford. In addition to speeding up payment transactions, POS systems automate many aspects of day-to-day business including employee management, thus streamlining a merchant’s overall operations and allowing them to focus on keeping their customers satisfied and spending. Another tremendous benefit provided by POS systems is the comprehensive reporting they provide. Advanced reporting functionality provides business owners with greater control and allows them to make more informed business decisions while saving on accounting and bookkeeping expenses.”
United Bank Card is no stranger to this type of groundbreaking program. In 2004, UBC launched the first free credit card terminal program, a model that has since become the industry standard. In 2009, the company partnered with Casio to offer a free electronic cash register program.
