Smartphone technology gives businesses and consumers payment flexibility

All the new technology allows us, as recruiters, do really get to know our candidates and be available in their time.  We spend a great deal of time texting candidates to schedule appointments, getting quick answers to questions, skyping interviews for the in-person interview.  When I started this business 23 years ago there wasn’t even an internet!

With smartphones getting smarter, smaller, and speedier all the time, concurrent advances in mobile point-of-sale technology are presenting restaurants with the opportunity to make their POS systems mobile.

There are now numerous POS platforms that leverage the iPhone and other mobile devices, including Android-powered smartphones and tablet computers like the iPad, so that restaurants can process payments in the field with a credit-card reader. The readers either attach to mobile devices of the operator’s choice or accept payment through mobile applications like Google Wallet.

These various platforms, experts say, liberate restaurants from the constraints and costs of traditional POS systems and open up game-changing new ways to capture information about customers that will help operators earn their loyalty.

While mobile POS is often touted as a boon to full-service restaurants—it can allow customers to pay at the table through a credit-card reader attached to a mounted iPad, for example, and waiters can log orders on a smartphone that zip back to the kitchen at 4G speed—the technology also has service-oriented benefits for quick serves, English says.

Beyond mobile POS’s value as a portable cash register is its potential as a conduit for invaluable consumer insight. Whereas restaurants are able to glean very little personalized information from credit-card transactions, they can learn a lot when customers use the mobile payment apps or opt in for an array of alerts and updates via their smartphones.
