Payment technology firm Verifone has entered into a strategic partnership with payments company Worldpay to bring new point-of-sale (POS) technology to the UK retailers.
Under the agreement, Worldpay will work with Verifone to bring new POS technology to the market such as the VX690 portable device, a flexible solution that enables Wifi, GPRS and 3G-enabled connectivity.
The VX690 has the ability to roll over between Wifi, GPRS and 3G ensuring constant connectivity for merchants, Verifone said.
Verifone added that its solutions are capable of accepting a variety of payment methods including recent innovations such as Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay.
The two companies have also agreed to work together to bring P2PE compliant solutions to UK retailers and deliver new multi-communication devices to customers.
Verifone Europe president June Felix said: “We are truly excited to work with Worldpay to drive greater value and a richer in-store experience to consumers. The 3-in-1 capabilities offered by the VX690 solution reduces the complexity and cost of handling three separate products that are needed today.”
Dave Hobday, managing director of Worldpay UK said: “We are pleased to be extending our partnership with Verifone, enabling our customers to access the very latest POS solutions, enabling them to sell more.”
“Providing our customers with the most secure and seamless payment technology is at the heart of our strategy. Becoming the first acquirer to offer a PCI P2PE Version 2 listing for our Worldpay Total omni-channel solution which will soon include Verifone’s VX820 device has been a key focus for the business. By working closely with partners like Verifone we aim to provide retailers with best-in-class security whilst relieving the burden of compliance.”
