Don't Dump the Point of Sale: Gimme! Receipt Printers Instantly Enable Mobile Payment and Loyalty Programs That Integrate With Existing Point of Sale Systems

Cloud-Connected Receipt Printer + Merchant Services

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 10, 2012) - Gimme!, a tech startup based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, is launching its next-generation receipt printer/merchant services platform at the TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2012 conference. Gimme! SmartPrinters are plug-and-play thermal receipt printers that provide merchants with on-demand services such as QR-based mobile payment integration, QR loyalty rewards programs and analytics reporting. 

SmartPrinters are a direct replacement for the existing receipt printer and instantly connect to Gimme!'s cloud platform. Merchants select services to implement, directly integrating with the existing point of sale system. The platform analyzes transaction information and can add unique content at the bottom of the transaction receipts including QR codes and graphic coupons. Gimme! SmartPrinters add cutting-edge, mobile integrated programs without the taking up additional counter space or requiring replacement of the existing point of sale system. 

"We don't think that businesses should be pressured to replace their point of sale system or add some other piece of hardware to their limited counter space in order to implement really great services," said Gimme! CEO, Steve Basmajian. "Businesses typically invest a great deal of time and money on their point of sale system and SmartPrinters add value to that investment." 

Implementing new technologies is becoming increasingly beneficial for merchants to engage consumers in real-time environments and empower the acquisition of new customers. Unfortunately, the walled garden approach of most point of sale manufacturers prevents implementation of emerging technologies. The flexibility of Gimme!'s platform makes keeping up-to-date as simple as replacing the receipt printer.
