As our executives are tri-athletes, marathoners and biking enthusiasts’, much of our company sponsorship dollars are allocated to foundations that support programs offering these life experiences to inner city, suffering and under privileged youth. Often times, when traveling or competing, the Intrix logo greets you on bike jerseys and race T-shirts!
connect: What is the most encouraging thing you see for the future of the retail technology industry?
We find three (3) growth drivers significantly encouraging:
- Mobile! Mobile – for retailers, payment processing; Mobile – for consumers, eWallets; Mobile – for advertisers, couponing, loyalty and redemption.
- Stabilization of the radical industry changes experienced over the last 24-months, and the resulting acquirer “heavy” fees, brought on by the Dodd Frank Act and IRS Reporting mandates.
- High rate of adoption by small/medium retailers and large enterprises of integrated payment solutions that encompass and address the needs of both the POS and the back office.
