“We are honored to be recognized as a finalist in the Best Cash Innovation Category”
“We are honored to be recognized as a finalist in the Best Cash Innovation Category,” stated Mark Olson, President of APG Cash Drawer. “Retailers are looking for the latest technologies that can improve the overall customer experience – mPOS or mobile POS is such a technology. Our Wireless NetPRO® cash drawer is the 1st of its kind and it’s able to communicate with any of today’s tablet based POS systems. Going mobile doesn’t eliminate the cash transaction, it introduces security concerns. NetPRO® cash drawers have the ability to help retailers solve these issues through proximity claiming and alert features, which can activate security cameras, time and date stamp security video recordings, and broadcast alert messages to a store manager’s mobile devices.”
