Verifone and Aava Mobile have announced the first handheld mobile point of sale (mPOS) solution powered by Intel to deliver a flexible, long-lasting EMV-ready mPOS solution for enterprise retailers.

The solution is based on Verifone’s device and operating system (OS)-agnostic mPOS terminal integrated with Aava Mobile’s rugged handheld tablet PC, which is powered by the Intel Atom processor.

Opens the door to widespread mPos adoption

Widespread mPOS adoption among multi-lane retailers is lagging due to limited flexibility typically associated with mPOS technology as well as its inability to seamlessly integrate with popular enterprise back-end systems. Most mPOS terminals only support a limited number of operating systems (OS) and tablet and smartphone form factors, requiring retailers to purchase new technology whenever they upgrade their mobile devices.

The Verifone e355 mPOS terminal is agnostic to smartphone and tablet form factors and supports all major OS options, including Android, iOS and Windows - enabling retailers to make long-term investments in mPOS, at a much lower cost of ownership.

Windows-based, enterprise-grade tablet powered by Intel

Multi-lane retailers have substantially invested in Windows-based back-end systems to support critical workflows across their entire enterprise. The Inari5 from Aava Mobile is powered by the Intel Atom quadcore processor and is the smallest mobile device that can run Microsoft Windows Embedded 8.1 and Windows 10.

Integrating the Inari5 with Verifone’s technology provides retailers a flexible, long-lasting mPOS solution that seamlessly integrates with their legacy back-end systems, enabling them to connect their sales channels, enhance security and deliver digital commerce right to the customer—wherever they are standing.

“Verifone’s device and OS-agnostic offering combined with Aava Mobile’s Intel-powered tablet provides the ultimate in mPOS flexibility,” said Dennis Mos, general manager of Global Solutions Management for Verifone. “In addition to accepting EMV, NFC and all other payment methods, this solution serves as a connected network endpoint that also enables retailers to delight customers with an engaging digital commerce experience—anywhere in the store.”

Enhances security and adds more value to the Point of Sale

The Verifone e355 is supported by Verifone’s Secure Commerce Architecture, which helps retailers better protect cardholder data by connecting the device directly to the processor host. This prevents sensitive payment data from becoming exposed to POS (electronic cash register) malware commonly used by cybercriminals. It also enables security and PCI software updates to be remotely uploaded to terminals throughout the retailer’s estate.

Secure Commerce Architecture is also the foundation of Verifone’s Commerce Enablement offering, which enables retailers to improve customer loyalty and increase sales with targeted digital advertising, coupons and product offers delivered to consumers at the terminal.

“Aava Mobile’s Inari5 tablet provides a level of durability, memory and processing speed greater than consumer-first mobile devices,” said Michelle Tinsley, Director of Mobility and Secure Payment for Intel’s Retail Solutions Division. “As the first Intel-based mobile handheld payment solution, integrating Aava’s tablet with Verifone’s remarkably flexible terminal yields a powerful enterprise-grade solution in terms of payment acceptance, advanced architecture support, and legacy system compatibility to enable retailers to get the most out of their mPOS investment.”

This fully-integrated mPOS solution includes the following components and features:

  • 4.7” multimedia LCD touchscreen
  • Powered by Intel Atom quadcore processor, 4 GB RAM
  • Runs Microsoft Windows 8 and Windows 10, or Android 4.4 and 5.1
