City Furniture Adopts New POS Technology
August 10, 2017,
ATLANTA—City Furniture is upgrading its point-of-sale technology to improve its in-store shopping experience.
The retailer’s 15 City Furniture and 12 Ashley Furniture HomeStore locations have implemented Ingenico Group’s RP750x mobile point of sale card reader, which connects via Bluetooth to an iPad Pro to run additional applications. The system allows City Furniture to process and securely accept all forms of payment, including chip cards, private label finance cards and City Furniture gift cards.
City Furniture has also partnered with IBM on three MobileFirst applications that salespeople can use in the store to provide “a more efficient, personalized shopping experience for their customers,” according to a Ingenico statement.
