Innovation to facilitate mobile commerce
CardFlight Inc., a provider of mobile POS technology, launched SwipeSimple at The Electronic Transactions Association's Transact 14 conference held in Las Vegas in April. Showcased at the event in the Mobile Pay Zone, SwipeSimple is designed to be a turnkey solution that empowers credit card processors, ISOs, merchant level salespeople and other resellers to offer a mobile POS product to their merchants.
CardFlight and SwipeSimple were well received: the company won the ETA's 2014 Technology Innovation Award. As the recipient of this award, the company was honored for making significant advancements in the payments industry. This was welcome news for a company that has already raised over $1.6 million to fund expansion of its mobile POS technology platform.
"The pace that mobile technology is evolving is exhilarating," said Derek Webster, founder and Chief Executive Officer at CardFlight. "Our team at CardFlight works tirelessly to stay ahead across the changing landscape of iOS and Android devices. We're excited to be recognized by the ETA as a leading innovator and for our contributions to the payments industry."
The SwipeSimple mobile POS offering is available exclusively through payments industry distribution partners via CardFlight's co-branded reseller program. SwipeSimple includes an encrypted card reader that is compatible with iOS and Android devices, and a gateway that supports a growing network of more than 20 payment processors.
CardFlight pointed out additional benefits of SwipeSimple, including:
- Encrypted card readers for added layer of security
- Payment app support for both iOS and Android devices
- Real-time reporting, administrative dashboard for merchants
- Reseller portal for merchant onboarding, portfolio management
- Payment gateway that supports most major payment processors
In addition, CardFlight intends to stay ahead of the technology curve. "The rapidly growing use of tablets and smartphones creates opportunities across all aspects of commerce," Webster said. "CardFlight's mission is to be the leader in turning tablets and smartphones into payment acceptance devices. The launch of SwipeSimple is another step forward."
