Groupon Acquires Tablet-Based Point-Of-Sale Builder, Breadcrumb
Groupon has acquired Breadcrumb, makers of a point-of-sale system that runs on Apple’s iPad and is targeted at restaurants.
Breadcrumb charges its clients monthly for access to its point-of-sale system, with the most expensive plan — which can be used to operate up to 10 tablets — costing $399 a month.
“Breadcrumb will continue to serve new and existing clients and we look forward to offering their product to our existing merchant partners. Also, for Groupon merchant partners that use Breadcrumb’s point of sale system, we’ll be able to significantly improve the process of redeeming a Groupon,” wrote Groupon’s Mihir Shah in a company blog post.
