Trintech Group Plc (Nasdaq (NASDAQ: TTPA) (Prime Standard:TTP), a leading provider of transaction management and payment infrastructure solutions, today announced that Alphameric (LSE: ALM.L) has selected Trintech's Smart 5000 PINPad as the technology solution for its EPOS implementations across a number of retailers in the UK and Ireland, including Clinkards, Giles Sports and Slater Menswear.

Alphameric, a leading retail solutions provider based in the UK, chose the PayWare Smart 5000 because of its stylish, intuitive design, large display and hybrid card reader. It is a future-proof device that is in keeping with the stylish environment of major retail outlets. The combined card reader allows customers to keep control of their card while facilitating cashier assistance, if required. The Smart 5000 terminal is based on Trintech's innovative OpenPay architecture consisting of a fast and powerful ARM processor and open source operating system (Linux). This architecture means Smart 5000 has one of the highest chip transaction processing speeds in the industry and is an ideal terminal for value-add applications such as loyalty.

Trintech's Smart 5000 terminal is equipped with a single slot for magnetic stripe and smart cards, thereby solving the problem of consumer and cashier confusion at the point-of-sale. The Smart 5000 also has the ability to operate across both DOS and Windows platforms eliminating the need to upgrade the hardware should customers upgrade from DOS.

"We believe Trintech's Smart 5000 PINPad fits well with our approach of providing the very best solution for our customers," commented Andrew Blatherwick, Divisional Managing Director Retail at Alphameric. "Trintech is a leading supplier of Chip and PIN solutions and their product offering is bank accredited and integrates perfectly with the other technical elements we use."

"We are delighted to be working with Alphameric, their customer base demonstrates the flexibility of the SmartPIN 5000," says Eamon Keating, General Manager of Trintech's Retail Division. "Our comprehensive range of payment solutions enables Alphameric to offer a proven complete, cost - effective solution across multi-merchant environments, including retail, Internet and mail order."
