SCL Announces New UltraPoS Features
SCL’s UltraPoS Prepaid and Foreign Exchange (FX) system now has a broad variety of applications appealing to retailers, shopping mall owners, retail banks, card programme operators, travel companies and other value-added solution providers.
Demonstrations of SCL’s “hand held” mobile sales solution will feature on the stand. Utilising a GPRS or 3G enabled device for a wireless link and an ultra small printer and “swipe” unit, visitors will be able to see how simple and quick it is to load prepaid cards on the move, 24/7, via the UltraPoS system.
Also on show at the SCL booth will be a kiosk featuring the Giftwise solution from Self Service Networks. The convenient, cost effective and self-service gift card purchasing service allows retailers, or mall owners, to sell prepaid gift cards without the need for a staffed point-of-sale.
Ray Stanton, CEO, SCL, says, "UltraPoS is a huge success both in America and across Europe. Now we are seeing the next generation of software developments and clear illustrations of the sheer spread of innovative applications available from SCL for prepaid card schemes.”
SCL is also launching its real-time statistics service, providing unique and bespoke data, gleaned from the many million prepaid cards that SCL process each year.
Ray Stanton adds, “The new statistics service is tailor made to appeal to individual retail outlets, large shopping mall owners and to card scheme operators. It gives instant and bespoke on-line reports of prepaid sales, together with detailed trend information. This is vital data for our individual customers when they are evaluating, adapting and planning prepaid card marketing programmes. We can drill down and even see when individual POS stations are performing better than others, in the same shop, at different times of day.
With a very high percentage of the USA’s major shopping malls depending upon the UltraPoS service, we are in a simply unrivalled position to provide our customers with their own critical up-to-the- second data, as part of the new statistics service.”
