Roam, part of Ingenico Mobile Solutions and the leading mobile commerce platform provider, announces today that it has partnered with First Data - the global leader in payment technology and services solutions - to introduce an innovative mPOS solution into the Indian market.
Leveraging ROAM’s mobile solution and Ingenico’s global EMV expertise, First Data India has launched its own fully branded chip and PIN mPOS solution. This new mPOS offering enables merchants in India to accept payments on the go, while incorporating the unmatched flexibility, best-in-breed security, and user friendliness of ROAM’s RP750x cloud-based chip and PIN mPOS card reader.
ROAM’s unique white label solution allows mPOS players to reduce time to market with their own custom-branded payment solutions, in order to provide merchants with a powerful set of features (device management, device application upgrades, a robust and easy to use device configuration, etc.).
We are very pleased to support First Data India in the deployment of mPOS solutions in India,” said Sunith Menon, Managing Director of Ingenico India. “It illustrates our positioning as a facilitator for new players in mobile payment, and our capacity to leverage on Ingenico Group customers to deploy innovative solutions across new geographies.
As one of the leading acquirers in the country, we believe that mPOS provides a strong solution for on-the-go payments and for smaller merchants in India. Being a new technology that facilitates financial transactions, we needed a superior product from a trusted partner, able to offer global expertise as well as a strong local presence,” stated Nitish Asthana, General Manager First Data Acquiring Services. “ROAM’s EMV card reader device provides the security, ease of use and adaptability we needed to bring a reliable mPOS solution to Indian merchants.
