AnywhereCommerce, a global payments technology provider, will launch its latest and most innovative mobile payment acceptance device, Nomad 2.0, at CARTES 2014 in Paris.
The newly designed EMVCo L1, L2 certified, PCI 3.1 approved and Visa Ready device works with mobile phones and tablets to enable mobile point of sale (mPOS) acceptance of Chip-and-PIN and magnetic stripe card payments. AnywhereCommerce will be located in booth 4 N 027 at the exhibition.
"CARTES is the premier event in this market, and the perfect venue for the launch of our Nomad 2.0 solution," said Mitchell Cobrin, founder and chief executive officer for AnywhereCommerce. "This newest version of Nomad continues our company's commitment to deliver the highest degree of quality, reliability, and security that our global customers demand. We believe the innovations and vision encapsulated in this product will prove very appealing to mPOS solution providers and users alike."
Nomad 2.0 is designed to flexibly support multiple card-present payment method options, including debit, credit, gift and loyalty card transactions through both magnetic stripe technology and EMV Chip-and-PIN functionalities. The device employs patented encryption technology, and provides the option to connect to a mobile device through secure Bluetooth or a USB port. Nomad 2.0 is compatible with Android, iOS, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8 operating systems.
Mobile POS solutions incorporating AnywhereCommerce products have been deployed by such customer-facing giants as Delta Airlines and Bank of America, as well as a host of other merchant services providers, financial institutions, and merchants of all sizes across the globe. The company holds patents on a number of mPOS technologies, including the use of the audio jack input of a mobile device for payment transactions and the encryption of mPOS transactions.
