How Do Remote Management Apps Connect to Payment Processing Systems?
In order to utilize a remote access app to gain control over your business’ unattended payment systems, the payment terminals on each kiosk or self-serve station need to have the capability of being connected to the internet in order to tie into your business’ network, either through a direct wired connection or utilizing integrated Wi-Fi technology to connect wirelessly.
Not all systems will be equipped with this functionality, especially older units. However, most unattended vending machines and self-serve stations can be retrofitted and upgraded with a modern unattended payment terminal like those available from MONEXgroup. Once installed and connected, they can then be configured to allow access through a remote app loaded on to your smartphone or connected tablet, or through a web-based interface to provide access through laptops or desktop computers.
Advantages of Remote Management Apps for Unattended Payment Systems
There are numerous advantages that businesses can leverage once their unattended payment systems are connected to allow remote app-based access. For example, being able to obtain up-to-date sales statistics and performance data in the blink of an eye can allow your business to be far more nimble in adapting to rapidly changing business conditions. You won’t have to wait hours while data is gathered and compiled. Instead, you will be able to view business intelligence and sales reports in real-time, giving you the insights you need to maximize the effectiveness of your unattended systems, spot opportunities for improvement, and boost overall profitability.
Time savings are another notable advantage of remote apps for managing unattended payment systems. No longer will deploying system updates be dependent on physically visiting each terminal. You will be able to update system data across multiple systems with ease, regardless of how far away they may be.
Remote access apps also offer enhanced security by providing each approved user with their own account, ensuring secure and encrypted access to prevent unauthorized use of the systems. System administrators are able to set different levels of permissions to individual users, allowing top-level power users unlimited control, while other users can be focused on the specific functions that are most applicable to their roles and responsibilities.
Customer service teams can also benefit from remote access to unattended payment terminals, as they are able to directly connect to individual payment terminals to view transaction data and solve customer issues on the spot, correcting order errors or issuing refunds as needed. This helps to elevate overall customer satisfaction rates, bolster loyalty, and increase the likelihood of repeat transactions.
At the end of the day, it all comes down to flexibility. The ability to support your unattended payment terminals from wherever you might be, whenever you need to, gives you the flexibility you need to more effectively meet evolving market demands and adapt to new business conditions to gain competitive advantage.
