VeriFone this week introduced a smaller footprint version of its “Omni 3200” terminal, which was originally introduced in 1999. The new “Omni 3200SE” offers 1MB of memory, increased performance, and a clam-shell printer design. The Omni “3210SE” variant includes an integrated PINpad supporting 3DES. The payment card terminal manufacturer also enhanced its “Omni 3750” countertop terminal and its “Omni 3600” wireless terminal to support advanced IP technology. This new capability allows transactions to be completed in about three seconds, considerably faster than traditional dial methods. Verifone also released this week its “VeriCentre LE Download Management System” which provides small to mid-size ISO organizations with increased productivity at the lowest cost per download through a single, highly efficient terminal management solution. VeriFone says it has shipped over ten million electronic-payment systems to-date.
