Harbortouch Celebrates Banner Year, Builds Momentum into 2013

ALLENTOWN, Pa., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- As 2012 comes to a close, point-of-sale system and merchant services provider Harbortouch is celebrating another successful year, having expanded its exclusive free POS system program with several new hardware, software and feature additions and racking up numerous industry accolades along the way.


"We've built tremendous momentum this year, growing our customer base and enhancing our platform with a wider range of next-generation solutions to meet the ever-changing needs of the hospitality and retail environment," said Harbortouch CEO Jared Isaacman. "We look forward to serving even more customers with the industry's most innovative and affordable POS system in the coming year." The Harbortouch free POS system has garnered widespread acclaim this year, earning some of the most prestigious business accolades. These awards include a coveted Bronze Stevie Award in the 2012 American Business Awards recognizing the Best New B2B Product or Service as well as a Silver Award in the Small or Medium Business Product of the Year category by Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business award program of its kind judged by members of the press and industry analysts. The company was also recognized as a Gold Winner in the Golden Bridge Business Awards, alongside other major players in the technology industry, including Apple, Samsung, Google, Microsoft, IBM and AT&T.

In the past 12 months, Harbortouch has beefed up its product suite, unveiling POS Elite, a new all-in-one hardware model with upgraded internal specifications and a sleek, cast aluminum body; new industry-tailored software packages for delivery restaurants, retail stores, convenience stores, and liquor stores; multiple innovative new services including an integrated online reservations module and a tablet-based Tableside ordering system for restaurants; and the Lighthouse cloud-based POS and business operations management portal that allows business owners to handle sales, personnel and other back-office tasks from any web-enabled computer or mobile device.

To enhance its customer support, Harbortouch also debuted a new self-service support portal, providing convenient online access to frequently asked questions and answers, user manuals, video tutorials, knowledgebase articles and more for its complete line of free POS equipment.

To help guide this rapid expansion of one of the nation's largest payment processors, Harbortouch welcomed experienced POS expert Joe Porco as National Sales Trainer. Porco, along with other Harbortouch team members, made numerous appearances to demonstrate the Harbortouch platform at industry events, including RetailNOW, the National Restaurant Association Show, and the Nightclub and Bar Show, along with several others.

"We've been working really hard to spread the word to merchants that a POS system doesn't have to be complicated or outrageously expensive," Isaacman said. "With more than 120,000 business locations across the country now processing more than $10 billion in transactions a year, we're very pleased to see that this message is spreading. We look forward to growing our footprint further in 2013."
