Net Element Launches Aptito on the World’s First Smart Payment Terminal

MIAMI, FL, Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) (“Net Element” or the “Company”), a global technology and value-added solutions group that supports electronic payments acceptance in a multi-channel environment including point-of-sale (“POS”), e-commerce and mobile devices, announces the launch of Aptito, its comprehensive POS solution on PoyntSmart Payment Terminal.

Through this collaboration with Poynt, Net Element moves one step closer to its goal of helping merchants transact seamlessly across multiple touch points. Effective immediately, the Aptito POS application will come bundled in Poynt devices.  The combination of Aptito’s powerful POS application and Poynt’s interactive smart payment terminal offer a robust and flexible state-of-the-art solution to meet the needs of new merchants as well as those transitioning from legacy systems. The Aptito POS application on Poynt comes packed with multiple features, including:

  • Easy setup
  • All-in-one platform
  • Cloud-based solution
  • Real-time reporting
  • Smart inventory management
  • Offline mode
  • Self-order kiosk
  • Innovative gift and loyalty program (launched on Poynt in Nov. 2016)

This partnership enhances Aptito’s comprehensive flagship restaurant POS solution by combining the latest technology with a significantly robust software application for restaurants. Existing Poynt clients are now able to download the Aptito application directly via the Poynt terminal without using any additional hardware and follow the configuration wizard to get their business up and running. Similarly, Aptito clients have effortless access to the Poynt terminal, empowering them with greater payment capabilities such as pay-at-the-table and self-ordering payments.

As part of Aptito’s comprehensive POS offering, merchants are able to take advantage of Unified Payments’ Zero Pay cash discount program to eliminate credit card processing fees, as well as other innovative programs helping merchants both reduce their expenses and increase sales. 

“We are excited to continue building our relationship with Poynt bringing merchants a clear competitive edge in the marketplace.  In the coming months Aptito will be available on all variations of Poynt devices including the newest Poynt 5 line,” commented Vlad Sadovskiy, President of integrated payments for Net Element.
