Electronic Merchant Systems (EMS), one of the nation’s leading merchant processors, is deploying more than 3,000 Hypercom(R) card payment systems throughout its retail and restaurant network. The deployment includes Hypercom’s new ICE 5000 and T8 card payment systems, as well as the company’s popular T7P terminal. Concurrent with the deployment, EMS has named Hypercom Corporation its exclusive provider of card payment systems.
“Hypercom’s solutions allow us to deliver an array of easy to use, value-packed, revenue- enhancing features and greater options at the point-of-sale that are second to none,” said John Rahilly, President, Electronic Merchant Systems. “We are delighted to offer these powerful solutions to existing and potential customers, and equally pleased to designate Hypercom as our exclusive electronic payment provider.”
Hypercom’s ICE 5000 is a powerful, multi-function touch-screen terminal incorporating a high-speed thermal printer, paper cutter, and Hypercom’s new FastPOS(TM) 9600 bits per second (bps) modem technology that completes transactions in under six seconds. Hypercom’s ICE 5000 provides a highly interactive and intuitive user interface that allows the support of complex transactions with minimum user training. When used in concert with Hypercom’s Ascendent(TM) Server Environment, the ICE 5000 also supports online advertising and electronic signature and receipt capture, storage and retrieval.
Hypercom’s recently introduced T8 is a low-cost, user-friendly card payment system that supports draft capture, debit, check and proprietary card processing and new payment vehicles such as chip card-based credit/debit cards and stored value cards, as well as PIN pads. Hypercom’s T8 is ideal for merchants seeking to upgrade from paper-based systems or who experience low transaction volume.
“Savvy processors, acquirers and merchants are quickly recognizing the need to add value to the basic card transaction, and that’s where Hypercom comes in,” said George Devitt, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing and Sales, US and Canada, Hypercom Corporation. “We are pleased to help EMS provide its merchants with state-of-the-art electronic payment solutions.”
