Verifone And Revel Tout Merchant-Friendly POS

Verifone is stretching out its mobile legs at the point of sale.

The company announced yesterday (April 18) that its payment services solution, Verifone Point Classic, has been integrated with Revel Systems' iPad POS.

A press release explains that the goal of the integration is to simplify payment management on the merchant end, specifically addressing EMV acceptance, certification requirements, PCI changes and ongoing data threats.

"Revel is a platform designed to offer clients a seamless customer experience, and having a payment component that will simplify our clients' lives is important to us," Lisa Falzone, cofounder and CEO of Revel, stated in the release. "Verifone has more than 30 years of payments expertise and a worldwide team of payments specialists that will provide our clients with the most secure and technologically advanced payments capabilities. With this integration, we are continuing our mission to help business operators and entrepreneurs create the business of their dreams."

The benefits touted in the release include Revel clients gaining quicker access to payment innovations, such as mobile wallets and loyalty programs, as well as the application of Verifone's Secure Commerce Architecture (SCA), which decouples sensitive payment data from the electronic cash register.

"Managing payments can easily overwhelm merchants, ISVs and resellers," said Shan Ethridge, vice president and general manager of the North America financial services group for Verifone. "The integration of Verifone’s services with Revel’s iPad Point of Sale demonstrates how simple payments can be when merchants team with a leader in payments and a leader in business solutions through a single offering. Now, Revel can focus on building additional features for its clients and further enhancing its iPad Point of Sale solution, while Verifone takes care of the heavy lifting in the payments area."
