Harbortouch, a point-of-sale systems provider, has deployed Verifone’s terminal and PIN pad solutions to provide next-generation EMV and NFC capabilities to its customers.
As part of the partnership, Harbortouch will use Verifone’s VX 520 countertop payment terminal along with the VX 805 PIN pad to offer EMV and contactless NFC payments.
With Verifone’s solutions, merchants can easily shift to EMV as the mandated liability shift approaches in addition to accommodating NFC payment types such as Apple Pay.
The VX Evolution solutions offered by Verifone feature faster checkout speeds, ease-of-use with backlit screens and keypads as well as strong performance due to lightning-fast processors.
Verifone vice president and general manager, North America financial services group Shan Ethridge said: "By partnering with Verifone, Harbortouch is able to provide its merchant clients with a future-proof terminal solution backed by more than 30 years of payment innovation and expertise.
"The VX 520 is an incredibly reliable device that supports emerging payment methods that are growing in demand amongst consumers, as well as applications that can add more value to the POS, while the VX 805 is a stylish and sleek customer-facing PIN pad that is easy to hand over to consumers for card acceptance and PIN entry."
Processing more than $9bn annually, Harbortouch now manages merchant accounts for more than 110,000 business locations.
