Apriva, a leading provider of omnichannel payment solutions and secure mobile communications, and Parlevel Systems, a leader for vending technology solutions, announced the completed integration of the Parlevel Micro Market solution to the Apriva payment gateway platform.
According to news in a press release, this new integration brings secure cashless payments to Apriva resellers and self-service operators, while expanding cashless payment options to their end users.
The solution allows operators to change prices, create promotional campaigns, access inventory levels, troubleshoot software, review security cameras, update products’ information, customize kiosk screens and review security cameras from home, office, phone or tablet, as well as access analytics to better serve every location, customer segment, product, employee and more.
The integration with the Apriva gateway gives micro markets secure payment options, 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, SVP 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.”
Additional features of Parlevel’s VMS include intelligent route planning, pre-kitting, automated reconciliation, warehouse support with streamlined ordering and receivables, telemetry and product merchandizing optimization that work together to boost market sales, cut service costs and gain operational control.
There are also equipment financing options, with 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.”
