Sprint lends its wireless knowhow to new iPadbased pointofsale

Just in case your business hasn't adopted one of the multiple tablet-based payment systems that are out there already, Sprint and Vantiv, a merchant acquirer that offers payment processing services for retail, have come together for yet another option. Simply called Vantiv Mobile Checkout, the package includes an iPad, wireless connectivity thanks to Sprint, an encrypted credit card reader, a tablet stand, a cash drawer plus a receipt printer. As for the software, that's powered by NCR Silver, a company known for its iPad point-of-sale systems. The all-in-one deal is available through Sprint business channels at a reportedly "affordable startup cost," though we're not sure how much that is. Of course, scanners, Bluetooth printers and other accessories will cost extra. If your business could use a mobile option like this, head on over to the link to find out more.
