Aava Mobile and Ingenico Group (Euronext: FR0000125346 – ING), global leader in seamless payment, today announced the launch of a retailer-specific tablet that will combine contactless payment and POS management features (CRM, stocks etc.).
Running on Intel technology, this latest integrated tablet will offer new mobile features to the retail business. Easy to use for retailers, this solution will fully integrate a contactless payment module that complies with the highest security standards. It will optimize the purchase experience for consumers, a key factor in developing the brand image of major retailers.
“Our partnership with Ingenico Group and Intel enables us to harness the added value of both mobile technology and secure payment”, indicated Markus Appel, CEO at Aava Mobile. “This new concept meets the expectations of retailers, who require tools that are robust, light and all-in-one. Integrating payment into a standardized tablet will offer them greater ease-of-use, while perfectly complementing their existing IT systems.”
“We have a vision that consumers and merchants should be able to conduct transactions securely on any device, anywhere, anytime” said Michelle Tinsley, Director of Mobility and Secure Payment for Intel’s Retail Solutions Division. “This fully integrated design is the first mobile payment device capable of activating Intel’s Data Protection Technology for Transactions ™ and demonstrates our commitment to delivering security enhanced mobile payment solutions.”
“We are delighted to be able to offer, alongside Aava Mobile and Intel, this new tablet concept that can support contactless payment. This innovation forms a part of our strategy to support retailers in developing their activities through innovative and easy-to-use payment solutions”, commented Michel Léger, EVP Innovation, Ingenico Group. “This partnership illustrates our ability to develop initiatives integrating payment features into connected devices, one of the key areas in our innovation strategy.”
Ingenico Group will present this innovative concept on its booth no. 4J003 at the Cartes show, from November 17 to 19, at the Paris-Nord Villepinte exhibition center.
