mHITs mobile wallet integrates with Point Of Sale system

November 2011

The mHITs Australia SMS payment service has demonstrated what could be a world-first – the direct integration of a mobile wallet with a 3rd party retail Point Of Sale (POS) system.

The integration, implemented at Ticos Drive Thru Coffee in Melbourne Victoria, enables consumers to order and pay ahead for their take-way coffee via SMS and simply collect their order when they arrive at the venue.

This means that consumers can order and pay for food and beverage items using their mHITs mobile wallet with the transaction automatically directed to the venues’ POS system which then in turn passes the order directly to the venue barista or kitchen printer/display etc for preparation.  Not only does this improve process automation for busy venues, payment is seamlessly integrated as the mHITs mobile wallet transactions are automatically reported within the retail management system.

The integration was performed with the BEpoz retail POS solution with additional integration work performed in conjunction with POS systems specialist Vectron Systems.

A free downloadable mHITs app also allows ordering and payment via smart phone including menu based ordering.
