Tablet point of sale technology provider ShopKeep POS has hired Todd Lasher as vice president and general manager of its channel business.

Lasher's hiring represents an increased focus by ShopKeep POS on investing in partnerships, the company said in a July 16 press release.

"The next step in our growth is to expand further into the channel. ShopKeep is a software company, not a payments company, and we're unique in that we don't bundle payment processing in with our point of sale product. We are an open platform, so we're a natural fit for channel distribution," Lasher said in a release.

Lasher joins ShopKeep POS from First Data, where he was vice president of business development. He has also held senior positions at Money Network, CheckFree, American Payment Systems, UIL holdings, and General Electric.

ShopKeep POS relies heavily on partnerships to grow its business.  It recently partnered with payments processor Global Payments to offer the processor's merchant customers its iPad point of sale system.  ShopKeep POS has also partnered with PayPal, Dwolla and SCVNGR's LevelUp.
