Equipment & Software
Credit Card Equipment
APS offers the widest variety of equipment choices. We carry all of the major models from all of the major manufacturers. All of the types we carry are universal to the industry, meaning that they are compatible with all major credit card processors. No matter the type, location, or size of your business, or how you want to run your transactions, we have the right system for you. Not to mention, we will customize it to fit your particular circumstances.
When you speak with our trained, courteous representatives, they will consult with you to help determine which terminal is best for you. Once we have assessed your unique circumstances, we will then suggest to you the particular system that will best serve your needs, taking into consideration your business’s size, budget, need for speed, and more. We are well trained on both the basic features and on the many extras that are unique to each model.
If you are a small retail or service business with a need for fast, basic, easy to run transactions, we will suggest a traditional system that will allow you to stay within your budget, but that will still allow you to grow and expand. If, instead, you are a much larger business with the need to run large numbers of transactions, we will suggest systems with more speed, more capacity, and more options. If you have special needs such as restaurant / tips programs, bar tab programs, or programs for individual accounting by server, table, or other criteria, we have the knowledge to get you in the equipment that will work best for you.
Run transactions from your PC, laptop, or anywhere you have internet access. Accept credit and debit cards as well as checks, just by logging in to a secure encrypted interface. Virtual Terminal is low cost, easy to use, full featured, and provides instant detailed reporting. It is perfect for phone/mail order businesses, as well as mobile businesses.
If, instead of a credit card terminal, you prefer to run transactions through your personal computer, we have available a wide variety of transaction software. You can choose from the most basic types if your needs are limited, or very advanced types if you need more options and more capabilities. We carry all of the major brands, but, as with our terminals, we only offer those that are compatible with all of the major credit card processors.
