The benefits of broadband eftpos

I switched my newsagencies to the Tyro boradband eftpos a couple of months ago.  It’s brilliant.  Much faster than a bank terminal, integrated to the point of sale and all for a lower cost.

The benefits I am seeing personally are: better customer throughput, fewer mistakes, a lower cost and happier staff and customers thanks to ease of use.  The benefits were obvious yesterday in handling the Oz Lotto jackpot traffic.  The Tyro integrated solution is far more efficient.

No, this is not an ad for Tower Systems.  POS Solutions is integrated with Tyro as well.

    Mark, what would the lag time be from when the customer presses enter on the key pad to when it has been authorised be.
    Currently our system takes up to 15 secounds.
