Good News for Merchants, Customers as Pesapal Launches Smart POS Machine

Pesapal has today launched a smart POS machine that is set improve the in-store experience for customers and help merchants efficiently accept payments and manage their inventory. 

Pesapal Sabi Smart POS will enable merchants to improve their business workflow by integrating everyday tools with payment processing.

Functionalities such as accounting, reporting and analytics, inventory management, and generating email receipts will be done on the POS terminal. 

The growth of payment technologies has resulted in a number of payment form factors that have transformed the way consumers pay.

While this accelerates financial inclusion, it poses a challenge to businesses managing multiple payment devices, said Pesapal CEO Mark Mwongela, during the pilot launch of the device in Nairobi.

“Africa’s uptake of digital payments is accelerated now more than ever. The software integration capability on our Pesapal Sabi smart POS gives us an untapped opportunity to partner with key players in the payments ecosystem to find ways to offer additional value and improve business operations,” Mr. Mwongela said.

The counter-top, smart terminal runs on the Android Operating System (OS) and accepts VISA, mVISA, Mastercard and MPESA payments. It combines the functional flair of a mobile device and  the latest payment technology into one single tool, making it extremely easy to use. 

Pesapal Technical Director Fred Mwangima said the Pesapal Sabi smart POS terminal capabilities go far beyond payment processing. The terminal can interface smoothly with other pre-installed software, ultimately aiding in the overall running of an entire business. 

"Our approach to our payment solutions is greatly inspired by the merchants we serve. 

The operational ability of the Android OS is huge because it enables our merchants to connect to third-party apps. A merchant will not only take payments in multiple forms but can also, and most importantly, manage business functions such as customer loyalty management and store synchronisation all on this smart terminal,” Mr. Mwangima noted.
