Posera and PAX Announce U.S. Partnership
PAX Technology Inc. a leading international supplier of secure electronic payment terminal hardware and transactional software services, and Toronto-based Posera Ltd., a leading provider of software solutions for the hospitality industry, announce today that PAX’s Android payment terminals will be available in the U.S. market with the SecureTablePay solution.
The PAX A920 is the world’s first tablet mobile terminal; it is an Android- powered device that is supported by the PAXSTORE open software distribution platform, which allows payment service providers to create and manage their own independent app marketplaces. SecureTablePay’s pay-at-the-table software is now integrated to the PAX A920.
SecureTablePay’s EMV-enabled pay-at-the-table solution gives customers the peace of mind of added security as the payment device is brought to them at the table. Customers can safely and easily use their chip cards, with either a PIN or signature, right from their seats. Ensuring security and faster more convenient checkouts makes paying at the table with wireless terminals the ideal approach to satisfy hospitality customers.
“By adding convenience, new payment options and better security to the payment experience, today’s modern restauranteurs will easily recognize value from utilizing Posera’s new SecureTablePay product,” said Patty Walters, SVP of Security and Services at PAX Technology. “By working together to integrate the SecureTablePay solution into the PAX A920, we have created a winning combination of function, ease of use and security; completely removing the POS software from PCI scope, an additional benefit critically important to every restaurant.”
The A920 comes with a 5-inch high definition tablet color display and a fast, thermal printer that is neatly hidden below to maximize screen usage for customer-facing transactions. Coupled with the SecureTablePay’s multichannel-ready capabilities with Bluetooth, wire, and 4G LTE, the integration takes every step to ensure a more user-friendly, versatile, yet more secure table restaurant experience.
“PAX Technology is a true innovator in the global electronic payments space, and we’re very excited to be partnering with them,” said Akash Sahai, EVP, Strategy and Business Development at Posera. “PAX A920 is a great combination of form and function, and its sleek design marries perfectly with SecureTablePay’s own contemporary graphic user interface. The combined technologies’ operational and security capabilities ensure the utmost convenience for merchants, servers, and guests.”
The PAX and SecureTablePay partnership brings to the merchant a wide range of advanced connectivity options, as well as inbuilt NFC contactless, electronic signature capture and massive amounts of memory to enable exceptionally fast processing of payments – creating the ideal pay-at-the-table solution for restaurants when it comes to security, efficiency, customer convenience and resulting profitability.
