SoftTouch POS has announced the integration of bitcoin acceptance into its flagship point-of-sale payment system. According to CoinDesk, the integration was made to "capitalize on the explosion in the popularity of bitcoin."
SoftTouch's POS system is geared specifically toward the restaurant industry. SoftTouch's president Michael Paycher said the company is the first to fully integrate bitcoin acceptance into its POS solution.

The company uses BitPay as its payment processing gateway.
