APG WHITE PAPERS

  • Protect Yourself: 8 Security Best Practices For Retailers

    The retail industry is a favorite target of cyber attackers. Hackers know a successful attack on a retailer can give them access to the data of thousands or even millions of payment cardholders. Cyber criminals can sell that data for a tidy profit to other criminals on the dark web who use it for fraud, identity theft, and phishing attacks. Cyber crime is big business; it’s projected to cause damages of $6 trillion by 2021 on organizations of all types and sizes.

  • Retail Cash Loss: Addressing The Problem With Intelligent Technology

    Any business that accepts cash for transactions has come to expect that some percentage of it will vanish as a result of fraud, administrative errors and employee misdeeds. Inventory shrink, which includes cash loss, costs retailers an estimated $47 billion annually. It is so prevalent that retailers have a line item for it in their P&L statement.

  • The Resilience Of Cash In A Digital World

    Cashless proponents have sounded the death bell for cash for at least two decades, but their predictions have been premature. To be sure, digital forms of payment have received a boost in recent years but have not succeeded in completely displacing coins and paper money. Its unlikely cash will be replaced anytime soon – if ever.

  • Digital Marketing: Cost-Effective Branding And Messaging For POS Solution Providers

    Without a marketing strategy, it’s difficult to target your message to customers about how you can support their business needs and goals. The more you hone the message, the better customers understand the value you provide, which gives them an incentive to engage and transact with you.

  • Cash Management Solutions For The Cannabis Market

    Due to federal legislation, U.S. cannabis dispensaries face the singular challenge of having to process most transactions in cash.

  • Embracing New POS technology Expands ISVs' Marketing Opportunities

    As a new, lighter POS approach emerges, Point of Sale (POS) solutions no longer have to depend on PCs to operate. Depending on a system’s configuration, the new POS model can leverage thin clients such as tablets and handhelds, giving the cashier the freedom to transact business at the point of decision.

  • SMARTtill™: An Automated Cash Management Technology

    Cash Still Rules. It takes money to make money. This old adage certainly holds true for businesses that process cash transactions. Cash costs U.S. businesses $55 billion yearly. While most of that is due to theft, the figure also includes time spent on processing, counting and transporting bills and coins.

  • Cash Management Solutions: Adding Value With End-To-End Intelligent Cash Recycling Technology

    If you think credit and debit cards are about to displace cash for retail transactions, think again. Legal tender remains the most commonly used form of payment, accounting for about 40 percent of U.S. transactions overall, up to two-thirds of purchases under $10, and half of transactions valued at less than $50. “Cash accounts for about 85 percent of global consumer transactions,” according to MasterCard. “In most countries the cashless journey has only just begun.” So while plastic and electronic payments have been hailed as the currency of the future, there is a long way to go.

APG CASE STUDIES

  • A New Approach To Handling Cash: Cash As A Service

    Thanks to the rapid expansion of e-commerce and Amazon, there is no doubt that a range of new card payment options are on the rise. At the same time, retailers are still handling enormous amount of cash daily because cash remains by far the most commonly used payment method by shoppers throughout the world. In the Euro zone, for example, cash was the main payment choice for purchases under €45, which accounted for 91% of all POS payments.

  • Retail Stores In Dublin Eradicate Cash Shrinkage

    Theft is one of the retail world’s biggest challenges, especially in the independent convenience sector where stores are often manned by a handful of people that are not equipped with the latest security gizmos. In fact, nearly half of retailers (49 percent) have experienced theft of cash from their premises. This hurts businesses and their customers because merchants often have to pass on these losses by raising prices. With cash management solutions, businesses can fight back against theft and achieve an advantage over competitors.

  • APG Partner Toast Cures Popular Food Truck’s POS Woes

    Erik Metzdorf knows what it’s like to be a victim of your own success. When his food truck, Metzy’s Taqueria, rolled onto the streets of Newburyport, MA, in spring 2014, a line of customers wanting to buy tacos and burritos wrapped around the block. While it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to fulfill an order, customers were forced to wait much longer.

  • APG Partner’s mPOS Solution Combines Human Touch With Efficiency

    In his vision for Fortina Italian restaurants, Rob Krauss saw a perfect combination of hospitality with expedience.

Customer information would be captured and stored for follow-up marketing.

  • POS System For Golf Tournament Scores "Whole In One"

  • VAR Launches POS Business After Favor For Friend

    Sometimes opportunities pop up in the unlikeliest places. Just ask Chris Pace, who ended up with a new business after doing a friend favor – to replace a legacy POS system in the friend’s coffee shop with an iPad- based solution. After researching available options, Pace assembled a solution consisting of iPads, a ShopKeep POS application, and APG Vasario cash drawers.
