Genius Customer Engagement Platform

Genius API provides seamless integration for POS developers on any device or operating system.

Boston, MA – June 28, 2012 – Merchant Warehouse®, a leader and innovator in payment solutions, announced that its Genius™ platform, available through an application-programming interface (API), is easily integrated into any POS system, regardless of device or operating system. Launched earlier this month, Genius is the first payment solution with the ability to aggregate and integrate every conceivable transaction technology, payment type and customer engagement program.

With Genius, Merchant Warehouse is helping POS providers and merchants by preparing them for the payments future with a single solution that accepts any NFC, EMV or QR code as well as loyalty, gift and reward programs. PCI compliant, Genius combines end-to-end encryption and tokenization, enhancing security and extracting POS developers from PA-DSS scope.

POS developers seamlessly integrate with Genius’s patent pending technology through an API that is both device and operating system agnostic. Genius’s API supports both Mac and PC based operating systems and may also be integrated with traditional hardware, tablet, or other mobile POS devices. Genius’s cloud-based architecture allows POS developers to integrate once, with all future updates occurring seamlessly through the cloud.

"Clover is excited to support Merchant Warehouse with our open, tablet-based point-of-sale solution,” said Leonard Speiser, president and head of product, Clover. “Today's systems are antiquated and cloud computing is allowing companies like Clover and Merchant Warehouse to respond to demand from both merchants and consumers for richer buying experiences including feature rich loyalty programs, coupon redemption and alternative payments. A flexible platform that allows for innovation is key to change and Merchant Warehouse delivers. We are delighted to be working with such a forward-looking partner."

“Genius provides POS developers with a future-proof payment solution,” said Robert McCarthy, product manager, Merchant Warehouse. “When you combine the scalability of payment and engagement applications acceptance with the untethered nature of the Genius integration, you have a payments solution that is unmatched in the industry today.”
