Ingenico drives payment innovation

Ingenico has partnered with Microsoft on the company’s new Windows Embedded 8 Handheld platform, which was showcased at NRF 2013.

Ingenico will provide fully integrated handheld electronic payment solutions to the retail industry running on Windows Embedded 8 Handheld, which is based on Windows Phone 8.

The new Windows Embedded 8 Handheld-based devices will leverage Ingenico’s mobile payment and secure EMV technology to enable fully integrated acceptance of current and future forms of payment, including magnetic stripe, EMV chip-based cards, contactless, and NFC-enabled transactions.

Customers will benefit from Ingenico’s payment expertise and gain worker productivity and reduced training costs through the intuitive Windows Phone 8 user experience in Windows Embedded 8 Handheld 8

“The Windows Embedded 8 Handheld platform represents a new wave of innovative intelligent hardware, software and application solutions,” said Thierry Denis, president of Ingenico North America. “We aim to bring a new set of payment innovations to the enterprise handheld device market.”

“Customers will benefit from Ingenico’s payment expertise and will gain worker productivity and reduced training costs through the intuitive Windows Phone 8 user experience in Windows Embedded 8 Handheld,” said D’Arcy Salzmann, senior product manager for Windows Embedded at Microsoft. “Enterprises deploying Ingenico’s Windows Embedded 8 Handheld payment solutions gain another key device in their intelligent systems, and will be able to employ the data and telemetry from Ingenico devices for new insight into their operations.”

Microsoft also introduced its other device hardware partners for Windows Embedded 8 Handheld devices – Bluebird, Honeywell, Intermec and Motorola Solutions.

The company also unveiled another part of the Windows Embedded roadmap is Windows Embedded 8 Standard, which plays a big role on the retail floor. The platform provides a secure, small footprint device that supports rich, modern application experiences just like Windows 8.
