Whether your business is new to electronic payment processing, or you are looking for the best upgraded system available, the Clear Advantage offers you variety of features and configuration options, that are both state of the art and cost-effective.
The Clear Advantage is one of the most advanced payment systems available today, and it comes with several special features designed to help merchants process payments with ease:
The more forms of payment that a merchant offers, the greater their potential revenue will be. The Clear Advantage can be configured to process all major payment types:
One of the most exciting features of the Clear Advantage is the Speed Messaging function, which allows merchants to conveniently communicate with Encore through their terminal. Speed Messaging is unique to Encore, and with it a merchant can order supplies or request a call from Customer Service or Technical Support. In order to contact Customer Service or Technical Support with their current service provider, a merchant would have to call in, be place on hold, and wait “for the next available agent”. With a Clear Advantage, all the merchant has to do is send a speed message, and Encore will contact them.
System memory is important in two specific areas: applications and user data. Application memory holds the programming needed for processing, as well as specialized programs that enable merchants to accept payment forms like gift/loyalty cards and EBT. User data memory stores transaction data, necessary for recall and reporting. The Clear Advantage has up to 4MB of flash memory for software applications and up to 2MB of battery backed-up RAM for transaction data, compared to many systems in the industry which only have less than 1MB for total memory functions.
The compact size of the Clear Advantage makes it an ideal system for merchants who have very little counter space.
Reconciling merchant processing statements is usually a time consuming process. The Clear Advantage dramatically simplifies this process with its extensive reporting functions. Reports can be run in daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly formats, and can be filtered with a variety of variables, including payment type.
Advanced Receipt Functions - The Clear Advantage helps keep merchants compliant with federal regulations by truncating consumer credit card data. In addition, the merchant’s receipts can be customized to offer a greeting, print a coupon, state the merchant’s return policy or hundreds of other possibilities.
