Toshiba extends mobile commerce capabilities to grocery industry

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions, a leading supplier of integrated in-store solutions, is about to make it possible for grocery shoppers to check out securely with just a single tap on their smartphones. 

By integrating its mobile commerce application, called Isis SmartTap, with its ACE point-of-sale platform for North America, Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions will not only enable mobile payments, but also allow merchants to improve the customer experience by extending offers and loyalty programs directly to their customers’ smartphones.

“Integration of Isis SmartTap with the ACE POS platform can fundamentally transform the way consumers and retailers interact at the POS,” said John Gaydac, EVP of global sales and professional services for Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions. “Toshiba is committed to helping retailers adapt their strategies, their stores and their technology to support a more customer centric shopping experience. Working closely with innovation partners such as Isis in our Together Commerce Alliance Program is key to this strategy.”

“The Isis platform provides a channel for retailers to strengthen the relationship with their consumers and transform the shopping experience, long before a consumer reaches the check-out line,” said Jim Stapleton, chief sales officer, Isis. “By integrating Isis SmartTap with the ACE POS platform, Toshiba customers will be able to mobilize offers and their rewards programs, driving loyalty and ultimately increasing consumer spending.”
