USATs QuickConnect is a Web service that provides developers that already have an application with Internet connectivity and a display mechanism, such as a kiosk or smartphone, with streamlined certification to USATs PCI compliant, one-stop shop cashless payment service, ePort Connect . Revive is a point of sale technology for micro-market applications, a self checkout-based vending offering geared for areas where fresh produce and similar items are in demand. Adam Arthur, founding partner and chief developer for Revive, commented, My approach has always been about providing a feature-rich point of sale kiosk with a flexible architecture that allows the customer to manage service options on their own. As a vending operator myself, I believe our open approach lends itself to the most value for the customer. Since we started selling the Revive Self Checkout in 2011, the number one question we received from customers in this regard was if and when the customer could integrate their other cashless vending locations that were utilizing USATs ePort Connect service with our micro-market solution. Naturally, we are extremely pleased that we can now accommodate those requests. Going forward, we are recommending USAT as a preferred solution because they are so easy to work with. Ive integrated with a handful of other cashless payment providers and USATs Web service, QuickConnect, is the easiest credit card provider to setup, said Arthur. With other credit card providers, you need to fill out lengthy forms and the pricing is often confusing. Our customers love the ‘straight forward’ approach USAT offers. USATs ePort Connect service supports the cashless payment needs for a variety of self-service applications across multiple industries. Recent QuickConnect examples include USATs new service relationship with Setomatic Systems in commercial laundry and ePortGO, an integrated dispatch, navigation and mobile payment solution for the taxi and for-hire vehicle industry (see video on
