GoPago LIVE: Pioneering "Solution as a Service" in Commerce

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 7, 2013) - GoPago is pioneering a new service in commerce, Solution as a Service, which could take over Software as a Service. GoPago LIVE is an all in one commerce in the cloud solution that stretches far beyond software. The system integrates all the hardware, software and internet connectivity a merchant will need for POS and mobile ordering, while providing customer service that is both predictive for the merchant (eliminating system downtime) and proactive for future needs of a business.

Leo Rocco, GoPago Founder and CEO, stated, "There's a big idea of evolving the paradigm of 'Software as a Service' to 'Solution as a Service.' The solution includes hardware, software, 4G data connectivity and best in class customer service; that's our package and I believe that's where the commerce industry needs to go."

This shift in service means that merchants will no longer have to invest large upfront licensing and maintenance fees for software from one company and pay additional upfront costs in hardware from one or more other companies.

Leo Rocco heard the same pain point echoed at the Electronic Transaction Association conference, last week in New Orleans, "During the ETA expo, I heard that merchants are upset at the fact that they have invested so much in their POS systems, just for them to be out of date in nine months." With GoPago LIVE the software updates automatically (enabled by the Android platform) at no additional charge and the hardware is all inclusive (tablet, receipt printer, credit card swiper and cash box) equipping businesses with the latest, most innovative technologies.

GoPago LIVE is constantly enhancing its product suite, tablet POS, mPOS (mobile POS), smartphone for mobile ordering and e-commerce. This summer, GoPago will debut an open SDK platform. This platform shift will allow talented third-party developers to build on the cloud platform and offer thousands of merchants an array of plug-in apps for different business needs.

GoPago future-proofs businesses by offering a true comprehensive solution; hardware, software and connectivity as a service, with one fixed $99 monthly subscription fee. The removal of upfront costs allows merchants to more strategically allocate their financial resources and reduce their financial exposure, by not worrying about their system becoming obsolete.
