Now this is an interesting and very smart move for Groupon…
Deal-a-day company Groupon hopes to expand the use of Apple’s iPad at restaurants through its new point-of-sale service called Breadcrumb.
The new service from Groupon Inc. launched on Wednesday in an effort to court more restaurants as clients, according to Reuters.
The service is a "sales, order management and reporting system for restaurants, bars and cafes" that relies on Apple’s iPad.
In fact, the market leading iPad is the only option in Breadcrumb’s service.
Clients can pay $99 a month for the service to run on one iPad, or $199 for two iPad terminals. From there, additional iPads are discounted at $299 per month for five and $399 per month for up to 10.
