pcAmerica, a retail and restaurant point-of-sale software developer, announced an agreement to integrate the LevelUp mobile payment and loyalty solution into its Restaurant Pro Express and Cash Register Express POS software. This agreement gives more than 50,000 restaurants, liquor stores and convenience stores a way to accept mobile payments and market to their customers.
The integration will make it easier for merchants using pcAmerica to accept LevelUp transactions, according to a news release.
Once integration is complete, LevelUp transactions get logged alongside other credit card and cash transactions, so merchants are able to balance the register at closing. LevelUp's analytics from customer campaigns are also integrated into the merchant's existing POS so they can track purchase habits and loyalty.
"pcAmerica is all about giving our merchants the option to accept any payment type or loyalty program they need to build their businesses," said David Gosman, CEO, pcAmerica. "Many of our customers were requesting the LevelUp integration because it makes transactions more seamless, so we were eager to make this happen. Merchants love how LevelUp helps them attract and retain consumers, and we're open to doing whatever it takes to make the LevelUp experience even better for them."
As part of the integration, the pcAmerica POS software provides retailers with the option to supply LevelUp with SKU-level data, which allows for more customized LevelUp campaigns.
"LevelUp believes that integrating with POS providers such as pcAmerica will help us build a truly mainstream mobile payment network," said Christina Dorobek, VP of partner development at LevelUp. "pcAmerica's customers are adopting technology quickly and looking for ways to build more sustainable relationships with consumers."
pcAmerica has more than 50,000 users worldwide, including chains and single location independent operators. Some pcAmerica users include Baskin-Robbins, Tasti D-Lite, Flowers Foods, Goodwill Stores and various United States Embassies and Consulates.
