Sydney, Oct 13: Westpac has just introduced Presto, their first third-party Android terminal app, designed to enhance payment solutions for merchant customers, ultimately streamlining business operations.
This innovative app, developed in collaboration with payments fintech mx51, is compatible with Westpac’s Android-based EFTPOS Now terminals.
It seamlessly integrates key point-of-sale features with payment capabilities, all on a single device.
With Presto, businesses can wirelessly connect their terminals to over 100 major hospitality and retail point-of-sale systems.
This integration not only speeds up checkout processes but also minimizes the risk of keying errors. Moreover, it offers a real-time dashboard for tracking sales and monitoring overall business performance.
Mandy Rutherford, the Managing Director of Cash and Transactional Banking at Westpac, emphasized the importance of efficient customer service for small businesses, particularly in the retail and hospitality sectors.
She noted that the Presto app and the new EFTPOS Now terminals aim to simplify the end-of-day reconciliation process and provide access to various innovations on the device.
This integration helps reduce errors and accelerates the checkout process, particularly during peak hours.
Victor Zheng, CEO of mx51, emphasized the joint commitment of Westpac and mx51 to redefine payment experiences in the hospitality and retail sectors.
Their latest innovation is a testament to their dedication to enhancing merchant experiences.
In addition to the Presto app, Westpac recently launched EFTPOS Connect with Linkly Cloud, allowing businesses to wirelessly connect their terminals to tablets for a tidier countertop and greater flexibility in accepting payments throughout their stores.
Furthermore, Westpac is currently piloting EFTPOS Flex, a solution that enables businesses to integrate their terminals with self-serve checkouts or kiosks, reducing queues and improving the overall retail customer experience.
This initiative reflects Westpac’s ongoing commitment to meeting the evolving needs of its customers.
