New Products

Compact, versatile EMV solution

Product: M010

Miura Systems Ltd., a global provider of secure electronic payment hardware based in the United Kingdom with U.S. offices in Maryland, released the M010, the newest addition to the company's line of secure mobile POS solutions.


Miura's M010 platform evolved from the company's close relationships with independent software vendors (ISVs) focused on enhancing the retail experience. Retailers can use the M010 in multiple configurations, enabling them to interact with customers across all channels to foster a seamless, secure consumer payment experience, Miura noted.

The M010 platform integrates with fixed smart tablet and legacy POS systems; it can also be used as a handheld portable device within the store and in a variety of mobile settings. The device, which is EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) Level 1 and 2 certified, provides merchants with a simple and affordable upgrade to secure, contact and contactless chip card technology, according to the company.

"Today's merchants need a simple, future-proof platform with the flexibility to adapt to emerging payment schemes," said Simon Stokes, Chief Commercial Officer at Miura. "Our partners have found the M010 platform to be an ideal resource that helps them compete and remain relevant in the ever-changing consumer and retail journey."

Peripheral-to-terminal functionality

Designed for use as a mobile or fixed countertop device, the M010 platform can be connected to a tablet cash register via a charging station or unclipped and carried by store associates who can assist customers throughout a retail store or restaurant.

The M010 platform comes with its own line of optional accessories designed to be optimally compatible with a broad range of retail and hospitality environments. These accessories extend the M010's capabilities and potential uses as a terminal or peripheral. Flexible configuration options the company listed include:

Partners, not competitors

Miura solutions are exclusively available through the company's global distribution channel. Miura does not sell directly to merchants. An extensive library of application programming interfaces and software development kits facilitate simple integration of Miura's platform with tablets, printers, cash drawers, barcode scanners and other third-party hardware.

"The M010 complements our AirREGI iOS tablet solution for small and medium-sized businesses in Japan and the United States," said Saeka Tani, Product Manager at Recruit Holdings Co. Ltd. "Our merchants appreciate its portability and contactless payments option."

Derek Webster, founder and CEO of CardFlight Inc., added, "Miura Systems has built and deployed battle-tested hardware that third-party developers can leverage. Their engineering team's collaboration and support was a key contributor to our successful M010 launch and rollout."

Miura reported that ISOs, resellers and channel partners in the United States are leveraging Miura's proven technologies and secure Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or wired connectivity to deliver secure, compliant, reliable and ergonomically designed platforms to merchants at highly competitive price points.
