CATAPULT was designed from the ground up with versatility in mind. To protect the integrity of transactions, each touchpoint is fully redundant. No matter where a transaction takes place, that touchpoint will continue to operate independently, immune to events of network failure.
If a transaction is interrupted due to power loss or other unforeseen circumstance, when the terminal reboots, the transaction automatically resumes.
Integrated Direct Electronic Payment Processing:
The quickest and most reliable route between any two points is a direct line. With CATAPULT, you no longer need unnecessary third-party middleware or gateways to process a payment. You’ll instead have a direct, ultra fast connection with the best and largest processors providing P2Pe, EMV quick chip, credit, and debit — along with e-WIC, EBT, FSA, and HSA.
Self-Hosted Gift Card, Membership and Loyalty:
ECRS offers a full-spectrum solution for gift cards, membership management, and customer loyalty, within the CATAPULT retail automation suite. All of these functionalities can be easily executed at the POS.
Fresh Food/Bulk Item Processing with Scale Aware™:
This patent-pending feature expedites the processing of weighted items at the point of sale by eliminating keystrokes. When this option is turned on, if the POS detects a settled weight on the scale, it automatically displays the produce/bulk menu for the cashier, rather than forcing them manually press buttons each time a weighted item must be rung in.
Automatic Software Updates and Delivery – Stream™:
facilitates automatic updates on a user-defined schedule.
Customizable Receipt Options:
Customers are offered the option of paper receipts, eReceipts, or virtual receipts accessible from the customer account history. Receipts are customizable to accommodate the retailer’s branding and messaging.
CATAPULT caters to retail needs in a variety of markets by accommodating POS functions such as fuel pump management and pharmacy system integration.
CATAPULT’s industry certifications include: PA-DSS, Weights & Measures, IIAS, NPLEx, and WIC.
At the press of a finger, customers can make payments without cards or cash, collect points for loyalty programs, and apply coupons.
