Why Is QTpod Sunsetting Service for my M3000? My unit still works fine.
Why purchase the M4000 now?
QTpod understands that evolving technology results in additional investments required by small and medium sized businesses. To help facilitate the transition to newer technology, we are offering limited time discounts to our customers when they return their old M3000. This reduces the investment by several thousands of dollars. While your unit may work fine, it is possible you will begin see some service degradation due to telecommunication issues or payment card authorization requirements. Additionally, with the scarcity of spare parts, you may not be able to keep you unit working in the event of a part failure.
Many of our customers report that their customers appreciate the new features on the M4000 that make it easy to use. For example, the large, sun light readable display, capacitive, backlit key pad make the M4000 easy to use in any light conditions. You’ll like too as with automatic software updates and anywhere/anytime access you’ll have fewer visits to the terminal and more uptime to sell more product.
Why reinvest with QT when I may have to replace the M4000 someday?
All equipment eventually has to be replaced. However, we designed the M4000 with the intention of being able to evolve with technology. We used a Windows operating system and peripherals with USB interfaces. We anticipate that with Windows you will be able to upgrade to a newer version. If a printer or card reader becomes obsolete, we can find dozens off the shelf with Windows drivers to easily integrate into the current design. Plus, the M4000 has many new customer and user-friendly features that you and your customers will appreciate and make the M4000 a more useful terminal for providing self-serve fueling.
