First-of-its-kind, Point-of-Sale solution with integrated financial service products and digital advertising
Berwyn, PA and San Diego, CA April 29, 2014 –ITM Digital Media Solutions, an electronic payment platform and digital signage provider, is proud to announce a partnership with Prepay Nation to introduce wireless top-up and a variety of prepaid services into its newly-launched SmartRegister product offering.
ITM markets its SmartRegister, a state-of-the-art Point-of-Sale system, to merchants such as convenience stores, gas stations, liquor and tobacco shops, grocery stores, wireless stores and other specialty retailers. The SmartRegister, provided at no upfront cost to retailers, provides these merchants a new way to generate incremental store revenue by selling fully-integrated financial service products such as wireless airtime refills, PIN-less calling cards, and electronic bill payment directly from the POS terminal.
In addition to these integrated prepaid services, the first-of-its-kind POS system displays revenue- generating digital advertising on a dedicated, consumer-facing HD screen, which customers see as they wait to check out. Both merchants and distributors earn a substantial revenue share from the sale of the digital ads displayed on any screen in their store. The ITM SmartRegister also offers an advanced store and inventory management system to help store owners run their business more efficiently.
“What’s most exciting about the ITM SmartRegister is our ability to continue to add new and exciting products and services without adding any inventory costs to the merchants or taking up an inch of shelf space in their stores,” said Sean Simon, ITM’s CEO. “ITM is working with distributors spanning both geographical and industry verticals to pioneer what we refer to as the Virtual Global Marketplace”
The platform’s wireless top-up, cross-border top-up and other prepaid services are offered through a partnership with Prepay Nation, the leading provider of international mobile airtime and productized remittance worldwide. Prepay Nation’s airtime transfer platform is integrated with over 200 mobile network operators and alternative financial service providers around the globe, making their products available to all of their retail and technology partners with a single point of contact. Through the partnership, all new ITM SmartRegister POS solutions have access to the best selection of prepaid mobile products and cutting-edge financial services on the market.
“Prepay Nation is very excited to work together with ITM as they release their forward-thinking POS Solution,” added Roger Kean, Director of Sales for Prepay Nation. “We believe that the strong added value that ITM is introducing will be a major factor in the growth of the prepaid financial services in the retail sector. Retailer’s currently have a clutter of terminals and laptops and no way to advertise new products and services, the ITM SmartRegister brings all of this together in an integrated solution.”
ITM launched the SmartRegister into the U.S. market in April 2014, with plans to expand into Mexico by the end of 2014. Initial rollout will be into approximately 200 locations, with a forecast to exceed over 1,000 SmartRegister placements within the first 18 months.
