Big Hairy Dog and USAePay Team Up To Provide Better Point–of-Sale Using iPhone® and iPod Touch®; Nike Events First Board

PaySaber at Nike Events

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 27, 2010

The scene in New York City during the Nike World Basketball Festival may have been all about the players, the games, the events and the amazing apparel on hand but behind the scenes of the event, powering the payments and transactions, was a solution created by the joining forces of Big Hairy Dog Information Systems and USAePay’s PaySaber.

During the four-day event celebrating all that is basketball there were special locations setup for sales of Nike apparel and gear. Customers attending the locations were helped with the traditional checkout register but were also assisted and checked out on the floor of the store using the mobile payment PaySaber. The device, which works with either the Apple iPhone® or iPod Touch®, has all the functionality of a stand-alone point of sale register in the palm of your hand.

Nike sales representatives were able to scan barcode items, take a credit card or cash payment for the merchandise and print a detail-itemized receipt from anywhere in the store .

The USAePay PaySaber software works in conjunction with the Big Hairy Dog Retail Pro solution and would update customer details, sales records and inventory quantities so both [the stand-alone registers and the PaySabers] were always in sync.

“The PaySaber takes the register off the countertop and makes it completely mobile”, said USAePay CEO Ben Goretsky. “We are so excited to help Nike Events with this robust and flexible solution.”

With the success of PaySaber during the World Basketball Festival, Nike Events plans on moving forward with the solution for future events such as the Chicago Marathon, New York Marathon and Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco.
