ScanSource, Inc. (NASDAQ:SCSC), a leading global provider of technology products and solutions, today announced a definitive agreement to acquire POS Portal, a leading distributor of payment devices and services primarily to the SMB market segment. POS Portal brings 17 years of demonstrated success focused solely on the US payments industry channels. Together, ScanSource and POS Portal will create the industry’s largest payments channel, ensuring customers have access to the solutions, services and support that can help them be successful. The two companies sell through complementary solution delivery channels with little customer overlap. ScanSource primarily serves the enterprise and mid-market merchant segments, with thousands of POS value-added resellers (VARs) and system integrators as customers. POS Portal reaches the SMB merchant segment via strong relationships with the leading payment processors, independent sales organizations (ISOs) and many of the leading tablet-based POS software developers.
