SUNNYVALE, Calif. & SAN JOSE, Calif. -- November 07, 2012
VeriFone Systems, Inc. (NYSE: PAY), and Fujitsu have entered a partnership
agreement to offer retailers sophisticated mobile retailing solutions powered
by VeriFone GlobalBay and integrated with the Fujitsu GlobalSTORE® solution,
or as a standalone mobile point of sale (POS).
The co-branded solutions provide Fujitsu retail customers with a sophisticated
mobile POS, enabling retailers to serve consumers from anywhere in the store.
They feature support for advanced mobile payment acceptance, including digital
wallets and alternative payments.
“Mobile is a rapidly changing world for retailers, and the VeriFone GlobalBay
offering was the clear choice to keep us ahead of the curve,” said Brian
Yates, director of Retail Product Marketing, Fujitsu America. “Fujitsu’s
integrated solutions provide the ability for VeriFone to leverage the same
pricing, promotions and business logic capabilities as a retailer’s
traditional GlobalSTORE Point of Sale terminals, from mobile devices.”
Retailers are looking to mobile solutions to increase revenue, improve store
operations and enhance the consumer shopping experience. The vast array of
emerging mobile devices, payment technologies, and loyalty and promotional
offers presents retailers with a complex landscape to navigate. Retailers are
relying on their trusted partners to help them make sense of and capitalize on
this new world of mobile. This partnership between VeriFone and Fujitsu
provides a clear roadmap for meeting their needs well into the future.
“Fujitsu recognizes the importance of mobility as part of their POS strategy
and we are pleased that they recognize VeriFone GlobalBay’s capabilities to
keep them ahead of the curve,” said Sandeep Bhanote, vice president and
general manager, Mobile Retailing Solutions, VeriFone. “This partnership
brings together best-of-breed mobile and POS technologies to support
retailers’ needs in a complex and rapidly evolving world.”
