San Jose, Calif. -- VeriFone Systems announced that New Balance and Samsonite have selected VeriFone GlobalBay's mobile point-of-sale solution.
The solution is designed to make it possible engage the customer in a more meaningful way by untethering the store associate from a fixed location POS register to provide mobile checkout at the point of interaction where its really needed. VeriFone GlobalBay apps also provide store associates with access to inventory, price and product information, as well as customer purchase history and recommendations.
Samsonite and New Balance will utilize the VeriFone GlobalBay mPOS app for iPod touch. Also, VeriFone’s Payware Mobile Enterprise card encryption solution for iPod touch provides Samsonite and New Balance with card acceptance, encryption of payment transactions and an interface with VeriFone’s Payware Connect gateway services.
Samsonite is deploying the VeriFone GlobalBay solution to support an innovative, back-to-school initiative.
“We wanted something that would enable us to get to market quickly and which simplifies the POS process,” said Robert W. Cooper, VP and general manager, retail, North America for Samsonite. “VeriFone GlobalBay mPOS cuts transaction time and provides consumers with better service.”
