Pinnacle Affiniti Cloud POS Solutions Advances Its Platform to Support TruAge®

Arlington, Texas, June 28, 2023 – The Pinnacle Corporation (, the leader in cloud
platform products, including point-of-sale, self-checkout, and loyalty shopper engagement solutions for
retail convenience stores, announced today that it has achieved certification with its Affiniti Cloud POS
Solutions to offer TruAge® (

TruAge® is an innovative, universally accepted age-verification system that makes it more accurate to
verify an adult customer’s age when purchasing age-restricted products, and at the same time makes
identity theft difficult. The age-verification program is free to retailers, consumers and point-of-sale
(POS) providers to ensure accessibility and support the program’s wide adoption.

Pinnacle’s Affiniti is the first cloud solution to complete this certification. The Affiniti Cloud Platform
( offers a complete range of POS offerings, including: a front counter POS attended
checkout with proven Pinnacle EPS technology, self-checkout, including cash management through the
same EPS technology, in-store kiosk food ordering with optional cash and electronic payment, and
mobile ordering with wallet payment.

“This announcement significantly expands the potential reach of TruAge® within the convenience store
channel for companies of all sizes and sends the message that we are serious about transforming the
age-verification process while also keeping adult products out of underage hands–and so are the
industry’s leading brands like Pinnacle,” said Kyle McKeen, CEO of TruAge®.

The completion of the TruAge® integration offers retailers the capability of scanning not only driver’s
licenses, but also digital IDs. With the TruAge® app, launching in early 2024, on a mobile device,
customers will be able to present a QR code at the point of sale, representing a digital age verification,
while also displaying a picture for the cashier to verify.

“We completed the initial integration of our Affiniti Cloud POS Solutions with TruAge® in 2021,” said
Peter Steele, VP of R&D at Pinnacle, “and now with the additional integration to include QR code scans,
we’re excited to offer our Affiniti Cloud customers this additional functionality to securely verify their
age-restricted products.”
