Hypercom Corporation (NYSE: HYC) and TASQ Technology today announced that TASQ will market Hypercom's new 32-bit Optimum T4205 to the Canadian market place.
This sleek entry-level device is an ideal terminal for small independent merchants throughout Canada. The two companies have entered into an agreement under which TASQ has exclusive rights to distribute the product in Canada for one year.
The T4205 shares the same platform and compact form factor inherent in Hypercom's T4200 line of products. It features a clear and intuitive keypad, large memory and high speed processor for fast transactions, all secured by HyperSafe32, Hypercom's exclusive RSA-based security infrastructure. The terminal is PCI PED approved and Interac certified. It supports three languages (French, English and Spanish) and can quickly and efficiently process debit, credit, smart card and value-added transactions such as gift/loyalty.
"The T4205 is an excellent entry-level solution for small merchants looking for an upgraded EMV/Interac terminal replacement. We anticipate considerable demand in both the Canadian market and United States where the T4205 is being introduced simultaneously and distributed by TASQ," said Shan Ethridge, General Manager, TASQ Technology.
"The T4205 speeds certification time and time to market. Customers who have certified our T4210 or T4220 terminals are ready to go with the T4205 and do not have to re-certify existing software. The quality assurance, service and support training has already been done," said Paul DeRosse, Country Manager, Hypercom Canada. "TASQ Technology is a well established partner in Canada and is in a highly respected position to successfully market and support the T4205 throughout Canada."
