Software steroid for POS terminals
Hypercom Corp.'s SmartPayments Client is an electronic payment processing solution that converts low-cost terminals into complete Internet protocol retail POS solutions. It is designed exclusively for North American merchants and securely processes payments in five seconds or less, Hypercom reported.
SmartPayments Client was originally developed by TPI Software and became a Hypercom product when the POS equipment giant acquired TPI at the beginning of this year.
The product enables merchants who use Windows-based POS systems to accept credit cards and other forms of electronic payment on their PCs. They receive all the benefits of integrated solutions without the cost or hassle.
SmartPayments Client accepts credit, debit, electronic benefits transfer, electronic check services, and gift and loyalty cards, as well as signature capture/receipt retrieval, and check image capture and retrieval.
The software can operate independently as a nonintegrated payment system or integrate into an existing POS system for a complete solution. It interfaces with multiple POS peripheral devices including card readers, PIN pads, check readers and signature capture devices.
ISOs can combine SmartPayments Client and Hypercom hardware with merchant processing services to provide customers a complete solution. Value-added resellers and system integrators may use the SmartPayments Client software to drive sales of integrated services and POS hardware.
SmartPayments Client is flexible. It works standalone or in conjunction with Hypercom's SmartPayments Server, a companion software for businesses wanting to centralize payments and own and manage their payment processing technology.
