eMobilePOS and Handpoint Team up to Provide EMV Compliant ‘Next-Gen’ Retail & Hospitality POS Solutions
Cost-efficient, turnkey handheld and tablet POS solutions with integrated chip and PIN payment capability and point-to-point encryption take pressure off merchants rushing to meet the October 2015 EMV deadline. Learn more about the partnership and the EMV ready solution at Transact 15, March 31 to April 2 in San Francisco.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — March 30, 2015— e-Nabler Corp., developer of the award-winning mobile POS software eMobilePOS today announced a partnership with Handpoint Inc., a leader in EMV payment services and winner of the 2015 Fintech Innovation Award for mobile POS.
Through the partnership, merchants get access to a turnkey tablet and handheld-based POS solution that complies with the quickly approaching Oct.15, 2015, EMV deadline. The new EMV standard mandates that U.S. merchants replace magnetic strip readers with chip and PIN readers or the merchant will assume liability for fraudulent purchases.
eMobilePOS has integrated and certified three Handpoint chip and PIN payment devices, including the Handpoint HiLite, HiBrid, and HiPro, enabling eMobilePOS to offer fully integrated EMV-certified payment processing. Card data is protected by point-to-point encryption between the PIN pad device and the payment gateway, significantly reducing the risk for the merchant. In addition to chip and PIN, Handpoint readers also have NFC and MSR capabilities.
Existing eMobilePOS users can upgrade their current POS solutions to EMV status by simply adding a low-cost Handpoint chip and PIN reader that is paired with a handheld or tablet POS device. This is an affordable and quick way to become EMV-compliant and secure.
“The EMV liability shift is causing U.S. merchants to reconsider their POS needs. New tablet-based POS systems are making the switch affordable and attractive for merchants of all sizes,” said Jody Muehlegger, head of U.S. operations at Handpoint. “Our partnership with eMobilePOS provides small and midsized merchants access to ‘next generation’ handheld and tablet-based POS systems with enterprise-class functionality and integrated EMV payments—at a fraction of the cost of a legacy solution.”
“Handpoint complements the eMobilePOS offering by providing secure, EMV-certified payments to eMobilePOS users across multiple industries,” said Joel Vázquez, president and CEO of eMobilePOS. “With this partnership we continue to deliver on our promise of providing more options and up-to-date systems to our clients.”
The joint solution will be demonstrated in booth # 211 at the ETA Transact 15, March 31 to April 2 in San Francisco.
The eMobilePOS and Handpoint solution is available through main distribution channels. Please contact eMobilePOS or Handpoint for more details.
