Digital music and jukebox giant TouchTunes, whose in-venue entertainment platform serves 65,000 bars and restaurants in North America, said this week that it has formed an exclusive sales partnership with Harbortouch, a point-of-sale system and merchant services provider which has served over 300,000 businesses across North America and currently processes over $12 billion in payments annually.
Harbortouch offers an unparalleled ‘free’ POS program to restaurants, bars, and retail stores that provides a full-featured POS system with no up-front costs. Through this partner program, TouchTunes operators can now offer Harbortouch POS systems to their existing and prospective customers – when a lead results in the installation of a new POS system, the operator is rewarded with a sales bonus and monthly residual payments.
TouchTunes operators will receive a free Playdium jukebox for each successful lead. Harbortouch said enrollment is easy, and it will manage all of the details and execution of the sales process, installation and support.
Harbortouch CEO Jared Isaacman told us “This partnership between Harbortouch and TouchTunes is a perfect marriage between two best-in-class technology providers that both serve a common customer – bars, restaurants and other local businesses. We are very excited to extend Harbortouch’s innovative POS solution to TouchTunes operators and venues,”
