ROAM, part of the mobile commerce platform provider Ingenico Mobile Solutions, launched its latest version of its mobile point of sale (mPOS) application ROAMpay X5, according to a company release.

The new version, debuted at Money 20/20 and Cartes, features a completely redesigned and tablet-optimized User Interface to enhance the consumer-purchasing experience. It is the first and only native tablet application for both iOS and Android that supports all mobile payment transaction types and all acceptance methods: magstripe, NFC, EMV chip and PIN and EMV chip and sign. The application will be compatible with any Ingenico mPOS device, including iCMP.

ROAM is demonstrating ROAMpay X5 during two major events: the Money 20/20 conference taking place in Las Vegas and ending today, and the Cartes conference, taking place in Paris until November 6.

“For this new version of our mPOS application, we addressed the growing audience of customers looking to use both iOS and Android tablets. The end result is a completely redesigned, tablet-optimized, and simplified user interface that our customers and partners tell us they can’t wait to get their hands on,” said Scott Holt, Vice President of Marketing and Solutions for Ingenico Mobile Solutions, in the release.

  • Seamless connectivity to the newly redesigned portal, ROAMmerchant: provides merchants with a consistent look and feel and single access point to manage their business.
