(PRWEB) April 15, 2013
In today’s fast-paced world where technology is a key component of “the everyday experience” business owners everywhere are constantly challenged to offer more versatile and cutting edge payment solutions for their customers. For the average consumer, leaving the house with smart phone in hand is just as much part of the routine as coffee and car keys. So what do consumer smart phones have to do with business payment solutions? Prodigy Payment Systems is proud to introduce Google Wallet to its suite of merchant solutions.
With the launch of programs like MasterCard Pay pass, Visa Pay Wave and a number of other emerging RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) based programs we now have the ability to simply wave a credit or debit card in front of an enabled terminal to complete a wireless and contactless retail payment. This works by simply implanting a wireless chip (only readable from about 2 cm) into the card itself. With the simplicity and speed that comes from this technology, it was only a matter of time before Smart Phones entered the equation. And who better to bring that movement to consumers worldwide than Google with their brand new wallet application and platform.
With Google Wallet, consumers can now combine their phone with their wallet and gain the ability to store payment cards, reward offers and more right on their smart phone. So with all of this technology seemingly making new advances daily, how does that family-owned bar and grill compete against the entourage of neighboring franchise competitors? Now there’s one easy answer, Prodigy Payment Systems.
Just like the technology itself, Prodigy is always evolving and developing new cutting edge products to help small business owners stay ahead of the technology curve and offer their customers and potential customers the latest and greatest in convenient and secure payment options. Partnered with VivoTech, Prodigy offers a complete lineup of terminal configurations which will allow for payment by both “Smart Cards” using embedded chips and programs like Google Wallet which broadcast right from a smart phone. This technology can often be integrated into the merchant’s existing terminal by adding a peripheral device. If you just think for a moment about trying to swipe a cell phone through a traditional card reader, you’ll realize pretty quickly the importance of accepting these forms of payment with the tap-and-go technology. Not to mention the convenience for your customers and the speed at which you could move through those lunch time backups at the register if nothing ever has to change hands.
