Taiwanese global point-of-sale (sale) terminal provider Posiflex Technology recently announced the launch of a North American Corporate Office (NACO), implemented to drive strategic solution synergy and enrich product and service offerings in the market.
Having acquired North America’s top kiosk solution provider, KIOSK Information Systems in late 2016, and more recently Embedded Computing Leader Portwell in 2017, Posiflex has now established a unique and powerful industry position with strongholds in point of sale, self-service, embedded/industrial computing platform, and field and managed services, according to the company. CEO Owen Chen stated: “The vision in this very specific acquisition strategy was to bring three best-in-class companies together to provide the most complete and sophisticated computing solutions from on-line to off-line (O2O) applications in this high-growth Service IoT era. The NACO Leadership Team is now in place and will be very actively guiding the cross-implementation of our collective development, product, and service assets to provide the market with an enhanced product-family portfolio, paired with industry-leading deployment support.”
Allen Lee, CEO of American Portwell Technology, has been appointed managing director of the North American Corporate Office. Being instrumental to the impressive growth of American Portwell for over 20 years, Lee added: “With NACO established, I’m confident Portwell’s state-of-the-art computing platforms will become an integral element of converged solutions that will truly benefit our customers and partners. The NACO platform will infuse longevity, reliability, and serviceability while empowering the convergence of online and offline commerce in mainstream applications such as smart retail and hospitality, Internet of Things (IoT), healthcare, and cloud services, thus enabling new synergies across manufacturers, field operators and end customers.”
NACO has named Tom Weaver as chief strategy officer to lead the Solutions and Sales implementation for the organisation. Tom was the CEO of KIOSK Information Systems for over five years and is a 15-year career veteran in the self-service industry. He will be leading in-depth value cross-selling efforts for each company’s products and services across the entire customer base. Weaver said: “This effort will accelerate the introduction of very logical, high-value product and service extensions from all three companies. Ultimately, it enables us to meet literally every product and service requirement necessary for a successful self-service, POS, or embedded computing platform deployment; and that’s exactly the value proposition our Sales Teams will be presenting to our valued clients and channel partners.”
Among others, Doyle Ledford, VP of Posiflex Business Machines, has been named regional channel director of NACO. His extensive knowledge and success building channel sales and partners will be an integral part of NACO’s overall growth strategy, the company said.
