ROAM Extends End-to-End mPOS Platform with EMV Chip & PIN

From Mobile World Congress, Ingenico Booth Hall 7 Stand 7J43--ROAM (www.roamdata.com), an Ingenico company and the leading mobile commerce platform provider, has expanded its mPOS solutions to include chip & PIN acceptance with the RP750x mobile card reader. This new cloud-based solution is fully compatible with ROAM’s mobile commerce platform, making ROAM the leading mPOS solution provider supporting new mPOS players with all mobile card acceptance types: magnetic stripe, NFC, chip & sign and chip & PIN.

Combining state-of-the-art mobile payments technology from mPOS innovator ROAM with the global EMV expertise of Ingenico, the RP750x is the most flexible and secure chip & PIN device on the market. Unique features include:

  • Compliant with the latest industry standards (PCI PTS 3.1 with SRED, EMV Level 1 & 2, Visa Ready);
  • Connects with smartphones, tablets and features phones via Bluetooth and/or audio jack;
  • Backlit display, EMV PIN pad, magnetic stripe reader, smart card reader, and NFC reader;
  • Compact form factor just slightly bigger than a credit card;
  • Configurable through the cloud, enabling direct shipment from factory to any country; and
  • Option to customize the branding and/or the form factor

With its unique white label platform, ROAM allows mPOS players to quickly get to market with their own custom-branded solution providing merchants with a powerful set of features, including device and fraud management, remote application configuration, as well as an mPOS application that can be localized for any language/currency in any country.

“With the launch of our RP750x chip & PIN solution, we’re now covering all of the bases of global mobile payment acceptance for new mPOS players,” said Ken Paull, CEO of ROAM. “Launching the ROAMmcm 5 payments engine in January laid the groundwork for supporting international mPOS deployments, and the RP750x is the latest piece of the puzzle enabling EMV mobile card acceptance across the globe.”

The company will demonstrate the new RP750x during Mobile World Congress 2014 at the Ingenico booth, Hall 7 Stand 7J43.
