SAN MATEO, CA and NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwire – May 18, 2012) – The annual Maker Faire Bay Area will once again showcase extraordinary innovation, down to the very last transaction. ShopKeep® POS, the simplest way to make smarter business decisions, announced today that its iPad POS (Point of Sale) system has been chosen to power concessions at this year’s Maker Faire.

The POS system created by ShopKeep POS provides the easiest and most elegant solution for any checkout — especially ideal for Maker Faire, where set up needs to be turn-key, staff is expected to be trained quickly and space for registers is limited. Their iPad register is a natural fit for the Faire, where creativity, design, and technology are highlighted throughout every exhibit. In addition, ShopKeep POS allows merchants to choose their card processor, giving them the most options for affordable credit card rates.

“For events like Maker Faire, they need multiple registers and quick training and ShopKeep POS is the answer,” said Jason Richelson, ShopKeep POS’ CEO and Founder. “ShopKeep POS has become the go-to solution for pop up events so we’re thrilled to be selected by Maker Faire as their solution for tracking sales and accepting payments.”

Embraced by thousands of retailers across the country, ShopKeep POS helps retailers track sales, accept payments, manage inventory and customers all from an iPad and the web. The subscription based service includes 7 day a week customer care by phone, email and online chat so their customers are never in the dark and always able to get the help they need when they need it.

Maker Faire Bay Area is taking place this weekend on Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20, 2012 at the San Mateo Event Center in San Mateo, California.
