VeriFone unveils H5000 hybrid countertop payment solution with NFC acceptance

Systems announced the launch of the H5000, a countertop payment solution that
accommodates multiple payment types, including legacy magnetic stripe, EMV chip
as well as contactless transaction with a single hybrid card slot and
integrated NFC/contactless reader.

As successor
to the Hypercom Artema Hybrid, the H5000 represents the first major enhancement
of a Hypercom system since VeriFone completed its acquisition of that company
August 4, 2011. The all-in-one solution incorporates PIN pad and an optional
printer and features a color screen and graphical user interface for fast and
easy use as well as value-added-services.

“The H5000
takes integrated payment capabilities to a whole new level and builds on the
success of the Artema Hybrid, which has hundreds of thousands of installations
in the German market alone,” said Adam Biedrzycki, VeriFone vice
president, Central Europe.

The system
delivers the fastest transaction time in the German market, accelerating the
check out process in multiple environments, including multi-lane configuration,
as a stand-alone device or connected to a cash register system.

The H5000 is
offered as a stand-alone-version or together with VeriFone’s PAYware
TCS central management system. This software enables Network Service Providers
(NSPs) and retailers better control over their payment device estate as well as
reduced operating costs. Furthermore, PAYware TCS makes it easier to adapt to future
innovative payment and NFC-based value added services, as well as to expand
into new international markets.

icon-based intuitive user interface and touch screen makes the H5000 easy for
customers to use and highly suited to on-screen advertising opportunities at
the point of service. The system utilized a powerful 32-bit ARM11 400MHz
processor and the Linux operating system, enabling developers to create
value-added applications for new and existing merchants quickly.
