TBS Enterprise Mobility has integrated its TaskMaster platform with Mint Enterprise, a payment solution produced by Mint Wireless Limited (ASX:MNW) ("Mint").
The integration enables chip and PIN, and debit card payments to be taken by field workers using mobile devices.
TBS Enterprise Mobility produces the TaskMaster software solution, an innovative workforce management platform designed to eliminate costs and inefficiencies, and drive consistent adherence to business processes.
Used by tens of thousands of field workers around the world, TaskMaster is depended upon for the exchange of task-based information between office systems and the devices of field workers. Businesses such as Balfour Beatty, G4S and Taylor Woodrow FM have achieved significant benefits, efficiencies and improved levels of service performance using the solution.
The addition of a mobile payment mechanism creates new opportunities for TaskMaster users operating in the field across a wide range of territory.
Steve Reynolds, Managing Director of TBS Enterprise Mobility commented: "We've had customer demand for a payment service like this, so we're delighted to be partnering with Mint on a significant enhancement to TaskMaster.
"It gives field workers unrivalled payment flexibility. An unscheduled maintenance job could be completed and paid for at the same time as a scheduled job, with no need for an additional visit or extra processing of paperwork."
Mint Enterprise is a payment solution uniquely designed to integrate the Mint Managed Payment service with mobile business applications on mobile devices to enable the processing of global transactions.
Cameron Olsen, CEO of Payment Solutions for Mint Wireless commented: "We are delighted to be partnering with TBS, as we recognise that they are a key player in the enterprise mobility space, supporting tens of thousands of mobile devices in the field and being one of only seven Premier Independent Software Vendors for Motorola. This is just one of the many accolades they have earned over the years. Our solutions will work seamlessly in providing fiefield workers with improved payment collection processes."
An agreement between Mint and Motorola enabled the supply of Motorola PartnerSelect members with the payment service via existing Motorola hardware and its "snap on" payment device. The Mint client has been designed to integrate with the Motorola ISV and Solution Partners' existing Windows Mobile solutions, ensuring close integration with the business processes and easy adoption by the end-user.
