BitPay, world leader in business solutions for Bitcoin digital currency, announces a partnership to integrate bitcoin acceptance into VisualTouch, Toshiba’s premiere POS Software Solution. Visit booth #9260 at the National Restaurant Association event this weekend to learn more.

Toshiba VisualTouch is a complete point of sale system that provides the advanced POS functionality needed for business management. VisualTouch POS is used in the Hospitality, Food Service, Grocery, Retail and Concession industries with a combined install base of more than 6,000 unique customers and some customers having up to 1,600 locations each. VisualTouch will use BitPay’s POS-integration solutions to grow bitcoin acceptance through brick-and-mortar retail locations that may have not considered bitcoin acceptance in the past.

“This partnership greatly expands the number of businesses that will now be able to accept bitcoin. BitPay is extremely excited about the relationship and the opportunity to expand the Toshiba VisualTouch solution to include bitcoin,” said Tony Gallippi, Executive Chairman of BitPay.

“We are truly excited to announce our partnership with BitPay in order to bring enhanced capabilities to our current customers and entice new business through our combined leadership in this field,” said Marius Kimel, President of Visual Information Products, the developers of Toshiba VisualTouch.

The partnership announcement is officially being announced at the National Restaurant Association’s 2014 show in Chicago. The partnership propels VisualTouch’s offerings in front of over 2,000 exhibitors in 900 product categories. Many of these restaurants, food trucks, and catering services will be able to implement bitcoin in their POS system in an easy and streamlined manner. The partnership ensures the continued growth of bitcoin acceptance as VisualTouch becomes used by an increasing amount of businesses.

Gallippi also said,

“The ability for customers to use bitcoin at businesses with VisualTouch POS systems provides merchants an extremely loyal customer base who will go out of their way to support companies that accept bitcoin.”

BitPay has over 30,000 clients including TigerDirect, The NBA’s Sacramento Kings, WorldPress, Virgin Galactic, Shopify and Gyft. BitPay’s dedication to developing the Bitcoin platform and ecosystem has resulted in the opportunity to work with established brands like Toshiba VisualTouch.
