May 21, 2014

Payment technologies company Merchant Warehouse has announced a partnership with TouchBistro, a company focusing on iPad point of sale (POS) technology solutions for cafes, bars, food trucks and restaurants.

In a release, the Company said that the integration with the Genius Customer Engagement Platform gives TouchBistro's customers in the hospitality industry the flexibility to accept any type of payment, as well as immediate certification, in time for the 2015 EMV deadline.

TouchBistro is a smart POS app that supports tableside ordering, customized seating charts and menus, bill splitting, sales reports and unlimited printer connections. The integration with Merchant Warehouse's Genius platform brings pay-at-table services to quick service restaurants (QSRs), sit-down restaurants and bars across the United States. The partnership immediately certifies restaurateurs for 2015 and beyond, when the United States moves from mag-stripe to EMV cards, without having to buy new hardware.

"From pay-at-table to bill splitting, taking orders, managing the kitchen and the floor, TouchBistro's POS is built for versatility," said Alex Barrotti, CEO, TouchBistro. "Our integration with Merchant Warehouse's Genius platform helps our customers grow their businesses with future-proof solutions by accepting all payment types and immediately certifying them for the deadline to switch to EMV payments, more than a year in advance."

The Genius Customer Engagement Platform is a holistic, cloud- based payments solution. Genius securely accepts any payment type, including credit cards and alternative payments, to provide short- and long-term growth opportunities. Genius delivers choice and flexibility to small and medium-sized businesses with a visually appealing design.

"The hospitality industry is built on quality service, and today's variety of technologies can be a valuable asset to restauranteurs trying to manage business processes while continuing to deliver great customer experiences," said Henry Helgeson, CEO, Merchant Warehouse. "With Genius, we enable businesses to deliver a world-class customer experience while also maintaining compliance and preparedness for the future of payments in a cost-effective manner. We're looking forward to advancing the evolution of payment technologies with TouchBistro."
