New EMV credit card interface for SAM4s cash registers.

SAM4s cash register credit card interface
There is now a new device on the market that connects SAM4s cash registers directly to a credit card terminal that accepts EMV chipped cards. This new device is named the Smart ECR, and is affordable, fast and secure. Connects very easily with a couple cables to the register and one to your internet router.

Since cash registers began to be interfaced there has not been a solution as easy, fast and affordable as the Smart ECR device.

Here I have linked to several videos showing the Smart ECR working with a SAM4s SPS-2000 cash register  please keep in mind that the Smart ECR works with most SAM4s registers not just the all touch screen SPS-2000 seen in the video.

The Smart ECR not only works on IP but there is also a wireless service available in locations where you can't get the internet or maybe just can't cable. Perfect for fireworks stands, farmers markets and more.

Give us a call and we will be happy to consult with you on whether the Smart ECR is a good fit for you or not. Call us at 800-863-2274

Are Tablet POS systems really the dinosaur and not cash registers like everyone thought?


If you have been reading tech news you may have noticed that several of the Cloud Based POS systems are losing money faster thank they can sell system or receive additional venture capital. Take for an example Revel POS systems a popular tablet based cloud POS system was featured in an article from reforming retail. Here is the article where Revel POS is reported to be losing 20 to 25 million dollars a year  and now another one where Revel appears to be making a switch to forcing customers to use their merchant services because they are still losing money. This article points out Revel is trying to leverage Merchant Services to try and make a profit 

Savvy business owners are quickly doing the math and realizing that cloud based system really don't add up. The total cost of ownership is pretty high when you take $80 per month for ten years. Do you really want to pay $9600.00 for a cloud based POS system over ten years? If you bought a license instead or monthly you probably would have paid $1000.00 plus software updates and upgrades saving you thousands of dollars and you would have had good local support.

Before you put your head in the cloud check out more sustainable solutions like SAM4s cash registers or a perpetual POS license.

Wireless Data Collector for the SAM4s SPS-520R (any of the SPS-500 series)

We have an application that allows you to add and edit items to your SAM4s SPS-520R or any of the SAM4s SPS-500 series registers. We are using a commercial windows tablet but no reason you could not use a Surface or something like that as long as it is Windows. Wtah the video below where I add an item to the cash register database over Wi-Fi.

This application allows you to change prices, add items and even add stock directly to the register in a live mode. No more docking stations or file transfers, just make the change of additions in the tablet and send it to the register.

If this is something you want to add to your SAM4s cash register give us a call at 800-863-2274 or visit our site Wireless Data Collector for the SAM4s SPS-520R cash register
