iMobile3’s PassMarket and Ingenico Create a Mobile Engagement Hub for Retailers

Aiming to change the way merchants engage with consumers, iMobile3 has partnered with Ingenico, a world leader in payment services, to deliver a comprehensive platform for frictionless mobile payments at the point of sale using Bluetooth LE (BLE) devices, or “beacons.”

iMobile3 will be presenting the second-generation of its popular PassMarket™ solution in the Ingenico booth (#3339) during the National Retail Federation (NRF) Big Show, January 12–15, 2014 in New York City. PassMarket is the industry’s leading cloud-based, multi-wallet platform to support Apple Passbook and Google Wallet. This year, iMobile3 introduces 100% frictionless mobile payments by integrating its US Patent Pending PassMarket Beacon™ technology into Ingenico’s Telium-based family of payment devices.

Ingenico has long-standing relationships with retailers around the world providing reliable, secure electronic transaction solutions as part of its complete omni-platform payment services offerings, which today includes mobile payments, online payments, and loyalty/couponing. Ingenico helps retailers of all sizes bridge the gap between their current technology infrastructure and their need to service mobile and online customers.

“iMobile3’s PassMarket Beacon solution tightly integrates into our omni-channel retail strategy by further enhancing the consumer experience across a variety of touch points,” said Thierry Denis, President of Ingenico North America. “Collectively with iMobile3 and their PassMarket solution, we are offering novel ways for retailers to engage with customers and improve their shopping experience before they even walk in the store.”

“Ingenico is leading the way toward the next generation of retail payment. We are proud to equip their devices with our PassMarket Beacon solution,” said Bob Leonard, CEO of iMobile3. “PassMarket makes it simple for merchants to onboard new consumers and update existing ones with virtually no changes to their POS environment. By combining Bluetooth low energy beacons with PassMarket, merchants can gather micro-location data about consumers while they are located inside a merchant’s store. Doing so provides merchants new ways to deliver special offers, increment loyalty programs, and accept frictionless mobile payments.”

iMobile3 has been collaborating closely with Ingenico for the past year to pilot innovative mobile solutions at several major retailers across the U.S. “The pilot companies are enthusiastic about the results,” said Leonard. “They believe this is the technology they need to take customer loyalty and payment programs to the next level while extending POS to areas beyond traditional checkout lanes.”
