Oracle’s Retail Mobile Point-of-Service, announced this week, was developed using the PAYware Mobile Enterprise solution and software development kit, VeriFone Systems, Inc. (NYSE: PAY) announced today.
PAYware Mobile Enterprise for Tablet and Touch incorporates an encrypted card reader and bar code scanner for use with iPod touch and iPad, providing retailers with a complete mobile solution that can integrate with existing point-of-sale infrastructure to enable a better shopping experience.
VeriFone’s PAYware Mobile Enterprise for iPod touch provided Oracle with support for the most forms of payment acceptance, including NFC and EMV, in addition to regular magnetic stripe credit and debit cards. PAYware Mobile Enterprise works with all forms of electronic payment including magnetic stripe, chip and PIN, and contactless/NFC-enabled cards and phones. The barcode scanner makes product-scanning, couponing and inventory tasks a snap.
“Oracle’s use of PAYware Mobile Enterprise in its product development reflects VeriFone’s commitment to provide partners and retailers with versatile payment solutions that are customizable and adaptable,” said Jennifer Miles, VeriFone executive vice president, North America. “VeriFone is at the center of the new mobile retail landscape, providing all the components needed to reinvent checkout -- from gateway services to software and firmware upgrades.”Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 for VeriFone Systems, Inc.
