The simple design and ease of use are my favorite! This made taking electronic payments so easy and effortless. Especially during a time when everyone was already stressed enough, contactless payments meant one less stress for everyone. offers software that is versatile and also nearly free for a new business.

This was the only appliance of its kind that I have used. Other devices have different capabilities for web filtering such as the checkpoint firewalls, but none of them offered the overall solution that was deployed with this product at that time.
