Don't Buy What You Don't Need

Omni 7000MPD

VeriFone, Inc.

As new payment technologies hit the market, so do new payment terminals - they're loaded with all of the latest features and functions. Merchants want to offer customers the widest range of payment methods but might wonder if they really need to provide what is not yet being used; after all, biometrics, smart cards and contactless payments are still evolving. Current customers require more traditional methods of payment: cash, checks, credit and debit cards.

VeriFone's Omni 7000MPD (modular payment device) gives merchants the option to purchase what's needed now and upgrade later if they want.

The Omni 7000 has all of the standard features of a point-of-sale terminal: a 32-bit processor, an ATM-style interface with four screen-addressable keys, four function keys, a large backlit display (up to eight lines), an integrated PIN pad (3DES and PED compliant), a triple-track card reader, 3 megabytes of memory and multiple cabling configurations for connecting with ECRs or peripherals such as check readers.

What sets this terminal apart from others is its flexibility and open platform. VeriFone offers optional modules for emerging technologies that merchants can add directly to the Omni 7000 in the field when needed rather than sending the product back to VeriFone.

Possible enhancements include electronic signature capture on the display screen, EMV-compliant smart card capabilities, Ethernet and USB connectivity and radio frequency identification (RFID) for contactless payments.

VeriFone's optional electronic signature capture module includes a touch screen-enabled display lens and technology that secures signatures for storage and retrieval. Since smart card applications have not been widely adopted yet in the U.S., smart card capabilities can be added when needed.

USB connections provide faster communications between payment devices and peripherals; high-speed Ethernet connects payment terminals directly to a company's local area network (LAN) so companies can store payment information in corporate databases or can display ads on terminals without slowing transaction speed.

Superior Super Warehouse, an independently owned grocery supercenter chain based in Santa Fe Springs, Calif., has implemented the Omni 7000. VeriFone worked with Lynk Systems, Inc., Superior's payment processor, to provide the software solution for the Omni 7000, which connects directly to StoreNext's ISS45 POS system and integrates with Lynk's Integra electronic payment-processing solution.

VeriFone offers a three-year warranty on the Omni 7000 and a one-year warranty on all field-replaceable modules and the display.
