are a leading global provider of technology that enables electronic payment transactions
and value-added services at the point of sale. Since 1981, we have designed and
marketed system solutions that facilitate the long-term shift toward electronic
payment transactions and away from cash and checks. We have one of the leading electronic
payment solutions brands and are one of the largest providers of electronic payment
Our system solutions consist of point of sale electronic payment devices that run our proprietary operating systems, security and encryption software and certified payment software as well as third party, value-added applications. Our system solutions are able to process a wide range of payment types including signature and PIN-based debit cards, credit cards, contactless / radio frequency identification, or RFID, cards, smart cards, pre-paid gift and other stored-value cards, electronic bill payment, check authorization and conversion, signature capture and electronic benefits transfer, or EBT. Our proprietary architecture was the first to enable multiple value-added applications, such as gift card and loyalty card programs, healthcare insurance eligibility and time and attendance tracking, to reside on the same system without requiring recertification upon the addition of new applications. Today we are an industry leader in multi-application payment systems deployments.
Our customers are primarily global financial institutions, payment processors, petroleum companies, large retailers, government organizations and healthcare companies, as well as independent sales organizations, or ISOs. They choose our system solutions for their robust functionality, ability to be compatible with previously deployed VeriFone system solutions, intuitive user interface and modular design. The functionality of our system solutions includes transaction security, connectivity, compliance with certification standards, as well as the flexibility to execute a variety of payment and non-payment applications on a single system solution.
