BBPOS has unveiled WisePad2 for use in an integrated or semi-integrated POS environment as well as a stand-alone environment connecting to the payment processor or gateway via GPRS, 3G or Wi-Fi.
WisePad2 reads EMV chip card, triple track magnetic stripe card, NFC card and has a secured PIN pad.
Compact and lightweight at 3.7oz (105g), it is mobile and flexible. The WisePad2 also has standard over-the-air features allowing both firmware updates and key injection that are essential in increasing operational efficiency as well as having a 2G/3G modem to allow direct connectivity to the network.
WisePad2 complies with all major industrial security standards including PCI PTS v4.1 with SRED; EMV L1 & L2; EMV Contactless L1; VISA payWave; MasterCard PayPass; AMEX ExpressPay; Discover D-PAS; and MasterCard TQM.
WisePad2 will be widely adopted as a mobile solution working with a smart device or as a stand-alone solution. It will also be a good alternative to conventional counter-top POS devices in countries which use Chip and PIN payment systems, such as China and in Europe. The non-NFC versions have been used at a number of key events and by merchants. For example, at the Dubai World Cup, customers had the flexibility and convenience of not waiting in long queues to purchase tickets and, instead, were able to use their debit or credit cards via roaming staff who were using tablets and WisePadTM.
WisePad2 is the future of mPOS – delivering a cost effective solution with convenient updating and a wide range of applications.
