Parlevel’s Micro Market Expands Cashless Payment Options with Campus Cards, Apple Pay, and Android Pay for Unattended Retail
Scottsdale, AZ, and San Antonio, TX, June 29, 2017 — Apriva, a leading provider of omnichannel payment solutions and secure mobile communications, and Parlevel Systems, an innovative leader for vending technology solutions, announced today the completed integration of the Parlevel Micro Market solution to the Apriva payment gateway platform. This new integration brings secure cashless payments to Apriva resellers and self-service operators, while expanding cashless payment options to their end-users. .
Parlevel Micro Market utilizes Parlevel Pay contactless readers connecting through proprietary vending management software (VMS) to enable operators to change prices, create promotional campaigns, access inventory levels, troubleshoot software, update products’ information, customize kiosk screens, review security cameras from home, office, phone, or tablet, access robust analytics, and more. Now integrating with the Apriva gateway, micro markets also gain secure payment options beyond credit and debit, including various campus cards and near-field communication (NFC) payments such as Android Pay and Apple Pay.
“This integration allows Apriva and Parlevel to provide kiosk and vending operators with a single flexible payment platform,” said Stacey Finley Tappin, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Apriva. “By integrating with the Apriva gateway platform, Parlevel’s hardware can process a wide variety of secure payment transactions for micro markets on over 35 processing platforms, enabling our reseller community and their merchants’ consumers to pay any way they want to pay.”
Parlevel’s VMS provides the control, accountability and support needed for self-service retail management. Other features include: intelligent route planning, pre-kitting, automated reconciliation, warehouse support with streamlined ordering and receivables, telemetry, and product merchandising optimization that work together to boost market sales, cut service costs, and gain operational control. Parlevel also provides equipment financing options—many requiring no money down and fixed, affordable monthly payments. These flat-rate plans allow merchants the flexibility to keep more cash on hand for their business operations.
“Not only does our cashless solution with Apriva help our operators accept more payments like credit, debit, prepaid, campus cards, Apple Pay, and Android Pay,” said Alan Munson, chief commercial officer at Parlevel Systems, “With Parlevel’s micro market, operators can control every aspect of their business, better satisfy their customers by letting them pay how they want, and maximize micro market sales as a result.”
