PayAnywhere (www.PayAnywhere.com), the professional-grade mobile point of sale solutions provider, today announced that Pep Boys will be merchandising the award-winning PayAnywhere credit card reader for mobile devices in its retail stores nationwide as well as online at www.pepboys.com.

With the PayAnywhere reader, Pep Boys customers can securely process credit and debit transactions right from their mobile device, anytime, anywhere. By selling the PayAnywhere mobile credit card reader in its stores and online, Pep Boys is providing independent contractors and repair shops with an important and powerful payments tool shown to boost revenue and increase customer satisfaction.

An automotive parts paradise for service professionals, do-it-for-me and do-it-yourselfers, Pep Boys also serves the auto part needs of independent auto repair contractors and repair shops. The company sells brand-name and private-label auto parts, and provides select services through 730-plus stores in 35 states and Puerto Rico. The PayAnywhere mobile credit card reader joins the more than 25,000 car parts and accessories sold in Pep Boys stores and online at www.pepboys.com. Pep Boys also offers credit and parts delivery to commercial customers, such as repair shops, fleet operators, schools, and municipalities.

“In the auto repair business, having the right tools for the job is absolutely essential,” said Caesar Girod, senior category manager, Pep Boys. “PayAnywhere gives Pep Boys’ customers who are doing auto work the right tool to make accepting credit and debit card payments safe and simple. We know independent auto repair shops and contractors have enough to worry about without sweating over how they are going to get paid by their customer once the repair work is done. PayAnywhere solves that problem, and we are proud to offer this new professional-grade tool in all of our stores.”

Beginning this month, anyone can purchase the PayAnywhere reader at their local Pep Boys store or online at www.pepboys.com.

Setting up a PayAnywhere account is fast, easy and free.

Approval takes only a few hours, allowing the user to begin accepting credit card payments the very same day they purchase the reader.

With PayAnywhere there are no hidden fees: no setup, monthly or cancellation fees. PayAnywhere customers enjoy a low 2.69 percent rate for swiped transactions with funds typically deposited in their bank within two business days.

In addition to the mobile app and card reader, PayAnywhere offers its customers an online merchant portal for creating extensive custom transaction reports, setting up business intelligence alerts via text message or email, viewing customer receipts, monthly statements and more. Real-time transaction reporting is available both in-app and on the Merchant Portal, providing access to critical business analytics that let PayAnywhere customers manage and grow their businesses more successfully.

Now that the world has connected “things,” we need to build these devices as truly intelligent in order to create instantaneous and precise results. This means you have to do as much of the processing at the point of entry as you can: at the edge. The killer use cases for IoT are becoming manifest through AI engines on edge devices. An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Crupi, Vice President and Eng...
There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
"I think that everyone recognizes that for IoT to really realize its full potential and value that it is about creating ecosystems and marketplaces and that no single vendor is able to support what is required," explained Esmeralda Swartz, VP, Marketing Enterprise and Cloud at Ericsson, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake.

However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
