Genius Customer Engagement Platform Showcased With Key Point-of-Sale Developers and Partners

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 6, 2012) - Merchant Warehouse®, a leader and innovator in payment acceptance solutions and merchant account services, announces the winner of its unbelievable giveaway at the recent RetailNOW 2012 convention and expo for professionals in the retail technology industry.

During the conference, which was held last week in Las Vegas, Merchant Warehouse held an open contest for the more than 1,800 attendees with the winner receiving the choice of a one-year lease for a 2013 Porsche® Boxster or a $25,000 cash prize. After receiving hundreds of entries, the winner, Shai Benamo, CEO of NovaPOS, was selected.

"I was surprised when the gentleman I was walking the floor with said that my name had been called," said Shai Benamo. "Originally, I thought I had won $500. I was completely floored when I reached the Merchant Warehouse booth and learned that I had a choice between the Porsche lease and $25,000 cash."

In addition to the contest, Merchant Warehouse also debuted live demonstrations of its new Genius™ Customer Engagement Platform™, through developer integrations with Clover, Lightspeed, and Combase. The company also spotlighted their partnership and integrated solution with LevelUp, a loyalty and mobile payment solution.

 "This year's RSPA RetailNOW show was the perfect venue for the live debut of Merchant Warehouse's newest innovation, Genius," said Henry Helgeson, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, Merchant Warehouse. "The conference expo and educational sessions combined with our Genius launch party, customer and prospect meetings, and the giveaway exceeded our expectations."
