VeriFone Systems Inc. has announced that it won the 2014 Merchant Payments Ecosystem Award in the mPOS category at MPE 2014 in Berlin. VeriFone was selected by the MPE awards committee for its portfolio of Payware Mobile solutions that transform smartphones and tablets into secure mPOS devices that can accept payments from traditional mag stripe cards as well as chip-and-PIN cards.
"The jury appreciated that VeriFone understood, as no other, that it is key to offer merchants of all sizes a handy mobile payment solution that enhances their ability to enrich the shopping experience for consumers," said Leon Dhaene, chairman of the MPE Awards. "The key is that VeriFone's solution can be used virtually anywhere, which enables the merchant to make the most out of every interaction with customers."
According to the company, VeriFone built its portfolio of Payware Mobile solutions based on feedback from merchants and retailers. Devices within the suite work with Apple and other smartphones and tablets, and some offer wireless compatibility with Android, iOS and Windows operating systems, giving merchants and retailers a mobile point of sale without requiring them to replace PC-based or backend point-of-sale platforms already in place.
