First Data is expanding its suite of Clover business management solutions with an EMV-enabled card reader that plugs into an iOS or Android tablet or smartphone and works with a Wi-Fi or cellular connection.
The new Clover Go enables business owners of all sizes to seamlessly and securely accept payments outside of a traditional brick-and-mortar setting.
Clover Go provides multi-merchant and multi-user functionality, enabling business owners to toggle between different store locations and provide access to an unlimited number of employees.
Business owners can also choose whether to use Clover Go as a standalone device or take advantage of its interoperability with the full Clover product suite.To start processing with Clover Go, a business owner needs only to download the Clover App onto a tablet or smartphone and insert the card reader into the device’s headphone jack.
Within the app, the business owner can assign dollar amounts including tax and tips to inventory as well as view transaction-level detail and the integration of data across all Clover devices in use by the business.
If the user is already a Clover user, they can use their existing Clover credentials to login to the app. Employees can also download the app on their own device, enter their own credentials and accept transactions for a given location. With multi-merchant and multi-user functionality, Clover Go makes it easy for businesses to accept payments anywhere, any time.
Clover Go users can customize their experience with web-based apps from the Clover App Market, one of the fastest-growing POS app markets. In addition to accepting EMV-enabled credit and debit cards, Clover Go also protects customer data with TransArmor, First Data’s state-of-the-art security tool that increases payment security through encryption and tokenization. To better understand sales trends and the competitive landscape, business owners can leverage Insightics, a data analytics tool, which is included in the Clover platform.
Clover Go joins Clover Station, Clover® Mobile and Clover® Mini as the latest solution in the Clover family. In 2013, First Data launched Clover Station, which quickly became one of the fastest-selling point-of-sale systems in the world. In 2014, First Data unveiled Clover Mobile, a high-powered portable system that enables transactions on the go, whether a business owner is accepting payments tableside or in a register line. Clover Mini debuted in 2015 and redefined the payment terminal, providing business owners with an “all-in-one” solution to streamline operations.
