Costcutter Supermarkets Group is set to launch PayPoint’s latest epos integration tool, PPoS, across its store network following a successful trial. PPoS has been fully integrated into the company’s bespoke CPoS system and removes the need for a separate terminal for PayPoint transactions. All payments and top-ups are carried out through the store’s existing CPoS system which significantly speeds up transaction times and customer service. Operated via broadband, the new PPoS system also enables Costcutter’s retailers to automatically capture information directly into their CPoS system, providing faster cash reconciliation.
The new deal sees PayPoint providing the software for the new PPoS application, as well as the hardware peripherals for accepting smart keys and contactless smart cards.
Costcutter’s CPoS tills automatically configure themselves by communicating with PayPoint’s host systems.
Costcutter’s IT director, Kevin Widdrington, said: "The PPoS system makes the whole process much simpler for both the retailer and the customer, improving transaction times."
