To ensure they are getting both what they want and need when purchasing POS systems, merchants often turn to VARs for assistance as a VAR brings superior experience and expertise, as well-being as a single point of contact for questions, assistance, and maintenance. Because, let’s face it: a merchant is never looking to just purchase a POS system. Businesses require an entire sales system — equipment, processing, and a gateway — as well as what can be multiple integrations to make them all work together.
For ISVs, the decision to switch payment processors can be stressful, not only a risky choice but one requiring extensive research on behalf of the ISV in order to find a reputable provider. Before making the move, ISVs need to examine their current payment offering and determine what their future goals and objectives are to help increase the overall success of their business.
The payments industry is changing incredibly fast. Every day brings more complexity, new products and emerging players. Now more than ever, it is important to choose a payments partner wisely.

All of us in the Payments/POS industry enjoy the low attrition that comes with POS systems. This stickiness is thanks to the integral role that these systems play for the business.
Merchants are moving away from stand-alone payment systems and looking for a more comprehensive business solution. Smart POS systems amass valuable information about customers, purchase patterns, inventory, and staff. Integrated systems offer a distinct competitive advantage, which is why merchants are flocking to smart devices. As hardware and software become more affordable and cloud-based solutions grow, stand-alone payment systems are quickly becoming obsolete.
