Groupon announced some updates to its Breadcrumb POS app for iPad on Wednesday, including new customization features.
"Ultimately the Breadcrumb POS v.1.2 upgrade allows hair and nail salons, spas, studios, wine bars, cafes and retail establishments to now have their own point-of-sale experience designed for their unique merchant environments," a spokesperson for Groupon tells WebProNews.
Merchants can customize the system to their industry-specific needs, utilizing pre-loaded menus and inventory lists, processing offline transactions (in the case of intermittent WiFi), scanning/redeeming Groupon vouchers, tracking deal performance and adding custom modifiers.
“Groupon has worked with several hundred thousand local businesses around the world and through these relationships they’ve told us they want a point-of-sale that is specific to their type of business,” said Mihir Shah, VP, Merchant OS at Groupon. “Breadcrumb POS is free, easy to use, designed for seven of the most popular types of local businesses and comes with one of the most competitive payment processing plans in the United States.”
Groupon's Breadcrumb line of products includes Breadcrumb POS, Breadcrumb Pro (catering exclusively to restaurants/bars), Breadcrumb Payments and the Groupon Merchants App for iPhone and Android.
