Vianet Places First Commercial Order for oti's New Trio Modular Payment Reader

First Sale of New 3-in-1 Cashless Payment Reader Following June Product Launch

ROSH PINA, ISRAEL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- On Track Innovations Ltd. (oti) (NASDAQ: OTIV), a global provider of near field communication (NFC) and cashless payment solutions, has received an initial commercial order from Vianet, a leading telemetry and software solutions provider for the leisure, gaming and vending sectors, for oti's new Trio modular payment reader. UK-based Vianet plans to initially install the readers in vending machines in the UK and the Netherlands during Q3 2014.

Launched in early June, oti's Trio is an innovative modular reader for the cashless payment industry that provides multiple payment options to the unattended market segments. The reader works with magnetic stripe cards, contactless payment solutions and secure credit/debit/prepaid cards with built-in EMV smart chip compatibility.

The Trio reader evolved from oti's field-proven Saturn 6500, a panel mount reader designed for indoor and outdoor installations. Following extensive field trials and testing, Trio's EMV reader was customized to suit Vianet's dynamic requirements.

"Developing a 3-in-1 cashless payment reader for the vending industry has been a challenge but, in collaboration with oti, we've made this a reality and can now supply a cashless payment system that is fully approved for UK and European markets," said Barry Lowe, business development director at Vianet. "oti's technology now provides vending operators with the opportunity to compete more effectively in the retail space and drive sales growth in excess of 20 percent."

Miron Raz-Kafman, European sales manager at oti, commented: "Working with Vianet on the Trio development has proven beneficial to both parties. With Vianet's experience in telemetry and contactless payments, coupled with oti's technical expertise in developing reliable fit-for-purpose solutions, we're well positioned to support the vending machine industry through the highly complex integration and certification process."

oti's Trio is an innovative, cost effective reader that can be installed modularly, allowing self-service operators a variety of configuration options:

  • Magnetic stripe only
  • Contactless only
  • Combined magnetic stripe and contactless
  • EMV contact only
  • EMV contact and contactless
  • EMV contact, contactless and magnetic stripe (three-in-one)

"This is an important win for oti as it marks the first commercial order for Trio as well as a major new reader customer outside the U.S.," said the company's CEO Ofer Tziperman. "It also reflects the increasing demand and traction for NFC solutions globally, and is consistent with our growth strategy to expand our cashless reader sales on a worldwide basis."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
