NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ShopKeep.com announces the beta release of the iPad version of its innovative point of sale service. Designed specifically for coffee shops and similar quick serve retail shops, the iPad Register combines the accessibility of cloud-based software with the portability, speed and low cost of the iPad.
Designed by a retailer for retailers, ShopKeep's iPad Register prints receipts and pops a cash drawer like a standard register while allowing secure web access to all the store's activity from anywhere.
According to Jason Richelson, Founder/CEO of ShopKeep.com and owner of three New York City retail shops, "ShopKeep is a powerful tool for independent stores to manage sales and inventory. By eliminating upfront investment in software and reducing upfront investment in hardware and maintenance, ShopKeep allows stores to open and expand with minimal capital investment in technology. New registers can be added with the click of a button."
Richelson adds, "After we launched our PC- and Mac-based Register software, coffee shops were telling us about how expensive and bulky existing touch screen systems were. The iPad Register combined with our real-time web-based reporting will save them money and precious counter space."
All of ShopKeep's registers instantly transmit sales to its web-based BackOffice. Managers using ShopKeep's BackOffice watch sales in real time and can manage inventory, run reports, and export to QuickBooks from anywhere.
The bustling Grand Central location of New York City favorite coffee shop Joe will be the first to implement the iPad Register, starting on January 18, 2011.
ShopKeep is still taking applications to be part of the beta for the iPad Register. Stores interested in participating can sign up ShopKeep.com.
Founder and CEO Jason Richelson will be attending the National Retail Federation Big Show on Monday, January 10th and Tuesday, January 11th. For a sneak peek at the iPad Register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
