Leading cloud-based and iPad point-of-sale provider signals increased US focus with the appointment of former Mint.com and Intuit executive, Anton Commissaris.
NEW YORK, Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Anton Commissaris has worked with Silicon Valley startups and established companies for over 18 years. As the Senior Vice President Revenue and Business Development for Mint.com he played a pivotal role in the company's US$170 million sale to Intuit only two years after launching. He brings this expertise in the US market to cloud point-of-sale company Vend, heading its US operations.
Launched in late-2010, Vend is the world's first HTML5 retail POS system and the first to be used on the iPad. The New Zealand-founded company continues to innovate its award winning cloud software, which is used by more than 8,000 store owners in over 100 countries, adding inventory management, ecommerce integrations, and customer loyalty tools.
In the US, Vend has partnered with established payments players like PayPal and Auth.net, as well as innovative startups like Swarm Mobile and Stitch Labs, to provide retailers with all the tools they need to run their stores cost effectively.
"Vend is loved by retailers all over the world. I'm excited about leading Vend's US operations to work more directly with our existing customers and partners and to develop many more new relationships," says Anton Commissaris, President US Operations, Vend.
"US retailers in particular are looking for a solution that allows them to work on any device - Mac, iPad or PC - use their preferred payment providers, and offers a marketplace of integrated apps to help their business do even better. Vend checks all those boxes.
"The US is Vend's largest and fastest growing market, and we're delighted to have Anton join us to develop it further by growing the North American team," says Vaughan Rowsell, CEO and Founder of Vend.
"Cloud and mobile software is helping drive a retail revolution in the US, led by independent store owners. Vend is giving small and medium businesses the kind of sophisticated retail management tools that were once only affordable by the big players, now at a fraction of the cost. It is an exciting time to be a small business retailer."
Vend provides cloud-based point-of-sale software to enable retailers to process sales, track inventory, integrate e-commerce, as well as manage customers and loyalty programs. It is the world's first HTML5 retail POS and works easily on any device or platform, including iPads and existing POS hardware. It even works offline.
Vend easily integrates with existing retail hardware and payments systems as well as cloud based small business apps, including e-commerce, accounting, foot traffic analytics and loyalty, to help retailers easily start, manage and grow their business. Vend has over 8,000 customers in more than 100 countries.
