Direct Source Offers a Mobile Point-of-Sale Solution That Can Stand the Test of Time

Enterprise-grade mobility solution includes Honeywell technology to help retailers improve productivity, enhance customer service
 
MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 5, 2016 – Direct Source, a tier-one retail technology consultant and solutions provider, is helping retailers create and deploy the latest mPOS solutions designed to expand the capabilities of enterprise devices to accept all payment types, which results in higher sales conversions in line busting and customer engagement work flows. 
 
Direct Source is working with Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions, who manufactures enterprise-ready mobile computers with integrated productivity solutions, such as imaging-based bar-code scanning. By pairing Honeywell’s Dolphin CT50, Dolphin 75e and Captuvo Enterprise Sleds with mobile payment terminals, such as the VeriFone e355 or Ingenico iCMP, retailers can deploy solutions that provide the selling tools and connectivity for inventory management, customer engagement and mobile payments.
 
“Working with Honeywell helps us provide retailers with the latest tools they need to manage productivity and customer service. We also help them keep an eye on the future by deploying the technologies that can support them now and down the road,” said Brad Fick, president, Direct Source. “Our long-standing relationship with them helps us strategically grow our businesses and stay ahead in an ever-changing industry.”
 
Direct Source is a Honeywell integration partner in North America offering mobility solutions using VeriFone e355 or Ingenico iCMP payment terminals. Direct Source advisors work with tier-one retailers to develop customized solutions to meet each retailer’s needs now and in the future. This includes device and OS recommendations, integration with existing payment systems, end-to-end mPOS deployment and depot services to maintain mPOS performance over time.
 
“Brick-and-mortar retailers, now more than ever, are in constant pursuit of delivering a positive customer experience in order to generate stronger customer loyalty while continuing to differentiate themselves from alternate shopping methods,” said Sameer Agrawal, director, product marketing, Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions. “By providing their sales associates with mobile solutions that boost productivity and support all payment types, retailers can improve customer service to enhance the customer experience and drive more sales.”
 
Both the Verifone e355 and Ingenico iCMP payment terminals support modern payment types, including EMV or chip-and-pin, NFC/contactless, mobile wallet payment apps, and traditional magnetic-stripe payments. Multiple connectivity options allow the devices to pair with any iOS, Windows or Android smart device.
