Peter Schapfl, Managing Director SCHAPFL IT-Scannerkassen GmbH
What was the initial situation? What were your reasons for choosing then epay integration module?
With the SCHAPFL POS system, we wanted to offer our customers an optimal and integrated solution for card terminals, where input errors are impossible due to the system. A secure POS system is a top priority and a key quality feature of the SCS POS system.
Another criteria was flexibility regarding new features. Our customers are demanding and want to include new features in their service to customers. An example of such a feature is “cash withdrawal”.
These features are available via the epay integration module and integrate seemlessly onto to the SCHAPFL POS solution. This greatly improves the usability for our customers.
How would you describe the cooperation with epay?
epay is our exlusive payment partner. Our business relationship with epay is therefore very good. This partnership has now been in place for many years.
How was the connection process?

Which services and additional features do you use with the epay integration module?
In addition to standard payment functions, we also offer our customers credit card acceptance, cash withdrawal and prepaid card transactions.
What has changed or improved?
The configuration and connection of variousterminals from different manufacturers to the SCHAPFL cash register system has beenenormously simplified with the epay integration module. Our support effort has been reduced and simplified enormously due to this standardization.
Howhas the turnover of your merchants changed? Could new sales potential be tapped?

Nowadays retail customers want to pay even small amounts conveniently with their card, smartphone or even with their smartwatch. The Covid–19–pandemic has definitely accelerated this development. As a result, we have seen higher demand than in previous years.
