MILAN, ITALY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- JUSP, the all-in-one, chip-and-pin mPOS (Mobile Point-of-Sale) solution for smartphones and tablets, announced it is teaming with Nokia as the first provider of a chip-and-pin mPOS solution to the Nokia Lumia smartphone. JUSP's solution also works with Windows-based PCs as well as smartphones and tablets running Windows, iOS and Android making it an all-encompassing mPOS solution for both micro merchants and small- and medium-sized retail outlets.
"Given the Microsoft Windows solution is the operating system of choice for most merchants, having an mPOS solution that works with Windows PCs as well as mobile phones and tablets brings enormous benefits to retailers," said Jacopo Vanetti, CTO and Co-Founder, JUSP. "JUSP's mPOS chip-and-pin reader can work just as easily with a Windows laptop, an Android tablet, iPhone and or the Nokia Lumia Windows Phone, for example, and it gives merchants and professionals the most flexible way to charge customers and link quickly to back-end payment systems. We are delighted to be working with Nokia to deliver this valuable solution to SMB's."
JUSP's mPOS device and operating system flexibility, along with the chip-and-pin security and the all-inclusive pricing launched recently by JUSP, makes it extremely easy, convenient and secure for retailers of all sizes to charge customers using whatever means they choose. JUSP's mPOS connects through a computer's USB or audio jack or any mobile device's audio jack and, because JUSP is 'bank agnostic,' there are no bank accounts to change or any other banking requirements or approvals necessary. With its Windows-based solution, JUSP can connect shop owners data to Microsoft-based back-end accounting systems, billing and Excel spreadsheets. The all-inclusive pricing waives commission fees and charges a different fee each month based on mPOS sales in any given month -- a very important cost benefit for large merchants, who do not find the Pay per Use traditional pricing of mPOS providers convenient for them.
The JUSP mPOS solution brings the following benefits to large merchants:
- JUSP is the only mPOS developer with one device running all mobile operating systems, usable on Windows-based PCs and mobile devices.
- There are no cumbersome set ups or pairing associated with Bluetooth devices -- merchants plug the device into the phone or PC audio jack and enter a single passcode and user ID.
- JUSP dynamic pricing may make mPOS a less expensive option than traditional POS. JUSP waives commission fees and charges a flexible fee each month based on mPOS sales in any given month. Pricing may change from month-to-month to cater for bursts of seasonal sales.
- JUSP Windows-based solution runs on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 8.
- The JUSP device also now comes in four colors: black, white, red and light blue.
JUSP's solution is currently available in Italy with a rollout to other countries coming over the following months. JUSP is also currently piloting its mPOS with a large multi-national company with a substantial mobile workforce.
JUSP is an Italian mPOS start-up company founded by two young Italian entrepreneurs, Jacopo Vanetti and Giuseppe Saponaro, which provides a proprietary all-in-one chip-and-pin card reader which connects directly to a smartphone audio jack. The company received $6M A round of financing from Italian venture funders and angel investors. Even before commercially launching its solution and technology, JUSP won the 2013 Bully Award which honors Europe's leading privately held TMT companies. The company has over 400 beta customers in Italy and is now expanding to partners and merchants in Africa, South America and Europe. It has an international business office in Singapore and has established a commercial division specifically focused on corporate clients. For more information, visit http://www.jusp.com/en/.

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?
