New Mobile App Gives Business Owners More Payment Options on Their Smartphones and Tablets
Allen, TX - April 30, 2013
It's not always hip to be square. Forte Payment Systems is pleased to announce the launch of Slyde™ a new mobile app that allows merchants to turn their smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices into a point of sale terminal which allows for credit card, debit card and check acceptance on the go.
The easy-to-use app has been designed to allow for extreme versatility, giving those who work away from a traditional office or brick and mortar store the opportunity to never miss a sale.
"We're very aware of how the market is evolving. Many merchants have a real need for conducting business on the go. When we developed Slyde, we wanted to make sure business owners would have the opportunity to not only accept credit and debit cards, but eChecks as well," said Jeff Thorness, Founder and CEO of Forte. "Flexibility is key. Merchants can feel confident knowing that our mobile solution was developed with them in mind."
What really differentiates Slyde is the freedom to choose from multiple pricing options - whether it be a merchant with smaller sales volumes looking for a low flat rate or merchants and professionals with higher volumes looking for pricing flexibility and additional channels of payment acceptance. Plus, Slyde can be used with an existing merchant account or gateway, just purchase the reader and you're good to go.
Merchants who work remotely benefit from this mobile solution by having the ability to securely accept credit card, debit card and eChecks via their smartphones and tablets using professional-grade MagTek® readers. Each reader encrypts information upon swipe, reducing risk of data compromise. Other features include password protection, daily reporting functions, easy access to transaction details, low swipe rates and more.
This mobile functionality is an extension of Forte's suite of solutions designed from the ground up to help organizations automate and manage their payment acceptance and disbursement needs.
