Payment technology firm Verifone has partnered with Vesca, a provider payment management platform in Japan, to offer enhanced and secure payment services and solutions to Japanese merchants.
As per the agreement, Vesca will offer the Verifone Engage V200c countertop and P400 PIN pad to provide increased speed and security, and an interactive user interface.
These devices, which meet Japan's EMV requirements, will enable merchants to personalize the customer shopping experience with targeted offers and loyalty programs for additional revenue streams at the point of sale (POS), according to a press statement.
The new Verifone solution to be introduced by Vesca will include end-to-end payment services such as estate management, payment gateway and merchant consoles.
Vesca chief executive Makoto Yoshida said: "This partnership will bring end-to-end advanced payment services and solutions for Japanese merchants as well as in-depth market expertise. Furthermore, we plan to create unique segment-specific features by collaborating with our extended ecosystem of clients and partners."
Steve Aliferis, president of Verifone Asia Pacific, said: "With Vesca as our strategic partner, we are offering Japanese merchants, particularly in dominant sectors such as retail, food and hospitality, access to the best technology solutions and services available.
"We are aligned on the goal to continue to spur the growth of new payment and commerce solutions that will enhance opportunities for merchants and experiences for consumers as Japan incorporates more cashless options."
