ScanSource POS and Barcode, the leading global provider of automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) and point-of-sale (POS) solutions, and a business unit of ScanSource, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCSC), has announced its PASS Program, which simplifies the payments hardware process for resellers and their customers. ScanSource created this program in conjunction with POS Portal, a leading distributor of payment devices and services, whom ScanSource recently acquired.
The PASS program simplifies the process of adding payment terminals to resellers’ offerings so that they can supply a total solutions package for their customers. Once a complete solution is sold, ScanSource resellers can then refer customers to POS Portal to further establish customer needs. A Payments Device Specialist will then contact customers directly to match their solutions with certified configurations, sell hardware that is already configured and ready to use upon shipment, and field service and support calls. Further, for every device sold to an end user, resellers will receive a one-time commission.
“Payments hardware is not always easy – getting a customer set up often requires secure environments and strict protocols, but our PASS Program helps resellers find the right products and expertise to ensure a seamless process,” said Paul Constantine, Co-President, Worldwide Barcode, Networking and Security for ScanSource, Inc. “We’re happy to offer this new program to our resellers in order to supply the best possible payments assistance.”
“At InterDyn BMI, we consider POS Portal to be a member of our own retail team,” said Ashley Gallegos with InterDyn BMI, a POS Portal customer. “When referring clients to POS Portal, we can always trust that they will be treated with the same professionalism and care that we would give them ourselves, and we appreciate that POS Portal walks the customer through the complex process of configuring devices, configures those devices correctly, and ships them quickly – all at a reasonable price.”
“The PASS program eases the pain of managing and supporting credit card terminals, giving resellers a direct and knowledgeable resource to turn to for their terminal support and configuration,” said Buzz Stryker, CEO, POS Portal. “The program was designed to help free up resellers’ time so that they can focus on their core business.”
With the PASS program, resellers can dedicate their time to signing new customers, instead of deciphering payments hardware problems. As each customer has differing hardware needs, the PASS program offers hundreds of pre-certified solutions available to deploy quickly and ready to work upon arrival.
