Bluetooth Swiper & Printer for Blackberry

Being the developer of the application, the manufacturer of the printer, and the ISO issuing the merchant accounts allows us to give unprecedented value to our customer base.

(Advanced Merchant Solutions, Inc.) Pocket Verifier Professional for Blackberry devices is now available with the Pocket Spectrum Plus; a complete payment solution that swipes credit cards and prints receipts for the Bold, Curve, Tour, Storm 2, and Torch devices.

Advanced Merchant Solutions, Inc. (AMSI) has launched a payment solution for the Blackberry OS, available RIM’s App World as a free application, which enables on-the-go merchants to accept credit cards anywhere. This application can be used with the company’s Pocket Spectrum Plus, a Bluetooth 2-track card reader and thermal receipt printer. Coupled together, the Pocket Verifier/Pocket Spectrum system enables any mobile business user to avoid the high cost of "card-not-present" transactions. AMSI further integrates this breakthrough system into a complete solution by packaging it with a combined merchant and gateway account, with no upfront costs, no term commitments, and no cancellation fees.

“We’ve been following the (mobile merchant) industry since day one, scrutinized every mobile credit card app in the market, and worked closely with numerous mobile merchants to get their feedback. Knowing what the user wants and analyzing the mobile payment industry as a whole, has allowed us to create a next generation app that is extremely user friendly and graphically appealing. We’ve even taken advantage of RIM’s OS6 and touchscreen devices to incorporate our proprietary server-side signature capture,” says Dr. Blaine Leckett, the company’s Chief Technology Officer.

"Our solution is light, compact, and fast. By incorporating our Bluetooth card reader and a printer; keyed-in entry is virtually eliminated. Even the Pearl is a pleasure to use… swipe a card, enter amount on the numeric keyboard, process, and print. For cash receipts, just enter an amount a print – it’s that simple", stated Dennis Ideue, the company’s CEO. "Being the developer of the application, the manufacturer of the printer, and the ISO issuing the merchant accounts allows us to give unprecedented value to our customer base" continues Ideue, "…everything is truly under one umbrella. We make it a simple one-stop mobile shop with one of the best competitive merchant rates in the industry".

The Pocket Spectrum Plus is currently shipping. Its retail package features Bluetooth, a rugged thermal print mechanism, 2-track magnetic stripe reader, interchangeable lithium-ion batteries, a quick-charge adaptor, and a leather case with integral belt clip. Pocket Verifier Professional for the Blackberry OS (version 4.5 and higher) is currently available in RIM’s App World. For more information and further inquiries, visit:
