Escher Group Holdings - a leading provider of outsourced point-of-service (POS) software to the postal industry - has agreed a contract with an existing customer, a large-scale postal organisation,  to provide in-store mobile POS (mPOS).   

Escher said the solution allowed mPOS equipped clerks to engage with customers on the shop floor and conduct transactions without customers having to wait in line.   It said the mPOS solution would run on an iOS device with native message server support, an integrated barcode scanner, credit/debit card reader, wireless receipt and label printers.

Chief executive Liam Church said: "The contract with this postal operator shows that we are building real traction with our mobile point-of-service solution, this comes after an implementation of 15,000 devices for a logistics provider in Europe.  

"Our partners are finding that our ecommerce-enabled point-of-service solutions add substantially to their capabilities by creating a more streamlined digital experience for their customers."
