VeriFone recently won the 2014 Merchant Payments Ecosystem Award in the mobile point-of-sale category at MPE 2014 in Berlin for its PAYware Mobile solutions.
The MPE Awards, which began in 2010, recognize companies that innovate in the payments industry.
VeriFone’s PAYware Mobile solutions are based on feedback from merchants and retailers. The solutions transform smartphones and tablets into mPOS devices that can accept EMV and magnetic stripe payments.
“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,” Leon Dhaene, the chairman of the MPE Awards, said. “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.”
VeriFone’s solutions work with Apple, and some offer wireless compatibility with Android and Windows operating systems.
“VeriFone is truly honored to win the MPE Award,” Bill Nelson, the executive vice president of global product management and services for VeriFone, said. “MPE recognizes the benefits of PAYware Mobile, which enable merchants of all sizes to experience mobile payments and enhance the customer experience. These benefits along with the security and scalability of the solutions are why we are seeing adoption of PAYware Mobile increase among merchants, especially as focus on mobility continues to grow.”
