Technology giant HP has launched a new Windows-based mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) platform, Pro Tablet Mobile Payment Solution, for retail and hospitality clients.
The platform pairs the HP Pro Tablet 608 with the HP Payment Jacket and the Verifone e355 mPOS terminal, allowing merchants to accept all methods of payment, including EMV, NFC, mobile wallets and traditional magnetic strip credit and debit cards from customers.
The company claims that the new product will offer a wide range of configuration options enabling customers to create and optimize the solution based on specific use-case scenarios for their business.
Along with an optional shoulder strap for the jacket, Verifone offers a barcode scanner for the Verifone e355 terminal and a multi-unit charging station that charges the payment device and the tablet without removing the jacket.
Lorena Kubera, vice president and general manager of Retail Solutions Global Business Unit of HP, said: "Retail and hospitality businesses see mobility as a valuable tool that enhances customer engagement, improves productivity and increases the bottom line.
"With the addition of the HP Pro Tablet Mobile Payment Solution to our retail mobility portfolio, HP is giving customers the tools they need to empower their employees to enhance the customer experience."
The product HP Pro Tablet Mobile Payment Solution is expected to be available in January 2016.
