Using Near Field Communications and Android Tablet Merchant360 Delivers Real Time Waste Can Pickup Tracking

Medford, OR — Merchant360, Inc., the leader in Near Field Communication Integration at the Point of Sale, announced today the delivery of the Waste Can Pickup Management Application for Android. The solution incorporates an Android tablet inside the vehicle and a remote contactless reader attached to the pickup arm of the vehicle.
