Worldpay, AEVI and PAX team up for smart POS tech
Paytech heavyweight Worldpay is adding PAX Technology’s handheld PAX A920 to its line of SmartPay terminals.
Featuring a single software platform, these devices provide a common user experience for merchants, Worldpay says.
SmartPay terminals also use an Android-based operating system with pre-loaded business application bundles –“specifically designed to best meet a merchant’s needs”.
The project stems from the partnership between Vantiv (acquired by Worldpay last year) and AEVI, a Germany-based subsidiary of Diebold Nixdorf. The two companies joined forces last year to work on a solution that gives merchants a choice of smart point-of-sale (POS) devices and applications to manage their store.
“With an open-solution design, powered by AEVI, Worldpay can offer its channel partners and merchants innovative terminals, all of which go beyond the POS with applications that will help grow revenue through loyalty and analytics tools,” Worldpay states.
The new offering enables merchants accept multiple forms of payment and print/e-email receipts whilst having a pre-researched bundle of business applications tailored specifically for them.
Andy Chau, president and CEO at PAX, says PAX A920 has “the horse power to run the kind of innovative applications Worldpay and AEVI are using it for”.
The device features “a sleek design with a large touchscreen, a fast thermal printer and contactless capability making it ideal for line-busting, pay-at-the-table and other trending payment methods”, Wordlpay adds.
It will be available from Worldpay starting in June this year.
