I Love Velvet, a leading provider of end-to-end, secure, mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) solutions, is now a member of the Samsung Solutions Exchange. The Samsung Solutions Exchange addresses the needs of line of business owners by creating holistic mobile solutions on a robust portfolio of enterprise-grade Samsung Mobile devices.
Coupled with Samsung Mobile devices, the I Love Velvet mobile point-of-sale solution offers three major components: Velvet mPOS hardware, Velvet store and Velvet cloud.
The modular mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) hardware turns a Samsung smartphone or tablet into a mPOS solution and enables the following business functions: credit card swipe, chip and PIN credit cards, 2-D barcode reader, Security Access Modules (SAM) chip capabilities, and RFID and NFC reader.
Velvet Store is an employee and customer facing point-of-sale application for Samsung Mobile devices to manage retail stores, display product specifications and images, browse store inventory, add and/or remove items from the customer shopping cart, cross-sell and up-sell additional products, add discounts and promotions, and process the shopping cart through to the payment portion of the transaction.
Velvet Cloud, or Back Office, is a cloud-based, multichannel, multi-location, multi-currency business management solution. The Velvet Cloud is designed to give up-to-the-minute transactional information based on specified store or group of stores, geography, products, discounts and promotions, employee management, and a host of detailed reports that can be accessed and managed from any wireless location.
“We offer the highest level of retail security available with our mPOS solution, which is superior to traditional credit and debit card swipe,” said Patrick Bouaziz, chief visionary officer for I Love Velvet. “By combining the I Love Velvet solution and Samsung Mobile’s world-class mobile devices, we have created a complete best of breed solution for retailers to solidify customer brand loyalty through superior, face-to-face customer service and convenience with seamless in-store transactions.”
“We look forward to working with I Love Velvet to provide businesses with a secure, comprehensive point-of-sale solution on Samsung Mobile devices,” said Nick Rea, director, business innovations group at Samsung Mobile. “With the addition of this offering to the Samsung Solution Exchange, we can better enable our retail customers to leverage the benefits of mobility.”
