Product: Carbon Mobile 5
Verifone launched Carbon Mobile 5, the first in a new line of all-in-one commerce solutions. The portable device can run as a standalone POS in small and midsize merchant environments or as part of integrated POS systems at Tier 1 retailers. The Carbon family of commerce solutions provides a range of advanced features and variations to support Verifone's diversified clientele, channel partners and end-users around the world, according to company representatives.
"The app ecosystem in Carbon Mobile 5 enables small and midsize merchants to compete with large chains," said Jeff Wakefield, Vice President, Americas, Sales Enablement at Verifone. "A sandwich shop's customers can order ahead and pick up in store. Local gallery patrons can buy art online and in the store. Apps make commerce easy and improve the customer experience."
Wakefield noted Carbon Mobile 5 uses a special-purpose version of the Android 7 OS and Verifone's Engage payment engine. These additional security layers enable merchants to safely process transactions and implement an array of value-added business apps.
Carbon Mobile 5 is compatible with all types of merchant environments, from small retail businesses to established global retail and hospitality brands. The versatile device can transition from fixed to mobile settings, making it an ideal choice for merchants who need mobile and countertop capabilities, Verifone noted.
When combined with Verifone's value-added applications and services, Carbon Mobile 5 can increase efficiency and drive consumer engagement in several ways, for example:
"Through Verifone Connect, a large merchant with a complex CRM program can integrate with Carbon Mobile 5, then access that data when they engage customers in the aisle," stated Abizar Vakharia, Senior Vice President of Global Solutions at Verifone. "Small business owners, on the other hand, can begin the loyalty journey with a simple, 'download-and-go' loyalty app offered by one of our developer partners."
Verifone noted that its Carbon products are designed to enable commerce and adapt to ever-changing merchant environments. Carbon Mobile 5 supports Verifone's expanding line of digital services, end-to-end solutions and intelligent business systems. Its key hardware features include the following:
"Carbon Mobile 5 is a handheld device, but its larger screen expands its real estate and supports real business functions," Wakefield noted. "Merchants can even take pictures with its built-in optical scanner."
