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.”

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
