|By Business Wire
|May 27, 2014 08:26 AM EDT
VeriFone Systems, Inc. (NYSE: PAY), and iPayment, Inc., today announced
a complete tablet point of sale solution. iPayment POS is designed for
the more than 150,000 small business merchants iPayment currently serves
directly, through independent sales organizations (ISOs) and other
multiple direct distribution channels throughout the U.S.
“We evaluated all the tablet POS offerings on the market and it became
abundantly clear that VeriFone has a superior product backed by
market-leading expertise and deep support capabilities that would best
serve our customers,” said Carl Grimstad, iPayment’s president and chief
executive officer. “The small business merchants we specialize in are
eager to realize the benefits of a tablet POS solution, but want
reliable providers they can depend on.”
“VeriFone is impressed with the innovative technology and tools iPayment
provides to small and medium sized merchants; they have been
instrumental in customizing this solution to address the needs of the
marketplace,” said Shan Ethridge, vice president and general manager,
North America Financial Services Group, VeriFone. “The new iPayment POS
solution provides small business owners with advanced capabilities and
business acumen previously only available to larger merchants.”
iPayment, an industry leader and partner to small and medium sized
business owners across the United States, is proud to announce iPayment
POS as the next step in business strategy for their customer base.
iPayment POS is a turnkey iOS app-based solution that is incredibly easy
to install, affordable, and simple to use. This solution is a
combination of VeriFone’s industry leading GlobalBay Merchant technology
and other iPayment proprietary solutions. The bundle includes the
iPayment POS software, an iPad, cash drawer, bar code scanner, stand and
printer, as well as a VeriFone PAYware Mobile e100 secure audio reader
or the VX 805 PIN Pad.
The solution utilizes secure encryption for payment processing and
provides a suite of business tools that empower small merchants with
capabilities formerly enjoyed only by larger retailers, such as
inventory management, service and appointment scheduling, business
analytics, customer management, built-in loyalty, and marketing
campaigns. Merchants don’t have to worry about emerging payment options,
as the VX 805 PIN pad is able to support NFC, EMV, PIN/Debit, and
“Tablet point of sale is ready to move from the early adopter phase to
the mainstream market of small business merchants,” said Ethridge. “But
smaller merchants want innovation from providers they can depend on for
years to come and that can address their concerns directly. With
iPayment POS, main street merchants get a turnkey solution that
leverages iPayment’s superior merchant distribution and service
capabilities along with VeriFone’s resources and proven technology.”
