Addison, TX (PRWEB) September 7, 2007
Encore Payment Systems, a leader in the electronic payment processing industry, recently announced plans to offer Wi-Fi and IP capable terminals in an effort to meet customer needs with the latest in payment processing technology.
Wi-Fi, a standard of delivering the speed and function of broadband by connecting devices together to create a wireless network, is bringing a new level of convenience to wireless payment processing without requiring a third party gateway provider. Wi-Fi is becoming more prevalent in restaurants, bars and in some cases entire cities, which are providing this service to residents and merchants. This easy accessibility is making it possible for trade shows, golf courses, airport concessions and other mobile vendors to capitalize on this maturing technology.
IP terminals are terminals that are connected through a high-speed or broadband internet provider. These terminals offer speed advantages over traditional terminals that require the use of a telephone line and modem to dial out. Most IP terminals are able to process transactions in under 5 seconds, meaning more transactions can be processed because of less wait time. These terminals are also convenient for merchants who will no longer need to maintain multiple phone lines and modems; instead one IP connection can handle multiple transactions simultaneously.
Encore Payment Systems, through established partnerships with industry leaders, will now offer several IP enabled terminals including the ClearAdvantage Ethernet terminal, the Verifone VX570 and Hypercom's T4100. Encore will also offer the Exadign XD2100SP and Verifone VX610 terminals, which are compatible with both Wi-Fi and IP systems. Encore will continue to offer traditional wireless solutions for it's customers as well.
"We are working hard to become the industry leader in IP and Wi-Fi enabled payment solutions," said John Crouch, Chief Information Officer. "Through continued partnerships with industry leaders we are able to tailor our solutions to our customer's environment and ensure they get the best fit for their payment processing needs."
