Following the release of an iPad point-of-sale (POS) stand last year, accessory manufacturer Griffin and ShopKeep POS have once again partnered up to announce the ShopKeep Mobile, a specialized POS case designed for the iPod touch. Using Griffin's Olli technology and the ShopKeep POS app, the case features an encrypted credit card reader and laser barcode scanner to accept payments.
ShopKeep Mobile also comes with support for QuickBooks and the ability to create customer and item databases, along with the inclusion of an offline mode and printer support. The accessory can also email receipts to customers, with options to toggle discounts and sales tax also included.
Griffin also announced a partnership with Square at CES 2014 to release the Merchant Case + Square Reader for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5, which is a specialized case that integrates itself with Square's mobile card payment system for added convenience.
The ShopKeep Mobile accessory is in production beta and is expected to be available soon.
