Made in Puerto Rico strikes deal with local tech company
SAN JUAN – Made in Puerto Rico … The Store, will incorporate locally devised technology for customers to pay for their purchases at the Plaza Las Américas shopping center location.
The store will use the eMobilePOS point of sale (POS) system created by Puerto Rican company e-Nabler Corp., which allows for transactions to be carried out via in all-in-one devices, tablets and smartphones, also provided by the company.
In addition, the system offers multiple resources such as inventory management, synchronization with business accounting programs, sales and marketing strategy development.
“We chose the eMobilePOS system because it offers flexibility and agility of integration with the Accepta payment processing provider, which is also a Puerto Rican company,” said Marilú Otero, executive vice president of Asociación Productos de Puerto Rico Inc. (Puerto Rico Products Association Inc.), which owns Made in Puerto Rico … The Store.
Otero added that eMobilePOS is used abroad via alliances stateside, in Colombia, Panama, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Canada, thus “exemplifying in an excellent way what Puerto Ricans can produce and export.” The system is used at major sports events, such as the National Football League’s (NFL) Super Bowl, the NFL All-Star Game and the Winter Classic of the National Hockey League.
For Joel Vázquez, e-Nabler’s president, the new adoption of his company’s tech helps boost sales and that the Puerto Rican products reach more customers, all while fostering the use of software coded by local programmers.
“Our experience confirms that companies that have adopted the use of integrated POS in their businesses have had an increase in sales, by providing purchase options and electronic payment to their customers,” Vázquez said.
He added that the agreement includes workshops to “maximize the advantages of this technology to increase sales of their products.”
