Verifone, Worldpay announce strategic partnership
Verifone announced a partnership extension with Worldpay, a leading payments company with global reach. The agreement will see continued delivery of Verifone's payment and commerce innovation to Worldpay's UK customers enabling them to offer the latest point-of-sale, or POS, solutions, and creating a seamless payments experience. This extended partnership builds on Verifone and Worldpay's long-standing collaboration. It will also expand Worldpay's current deployment of Verifone products, which are already used by thousands of businesses across the U.K. Under the agreement, Worldpay will work with Verifone to bring new POS technology to the market such as the VX690 portable device, a flexible solution that enables Wifi, GPRS and 3G-enabled connectivity. The VX690's ability to roll over between Wifi, GPRS and 3G ensures constant connectivity for merchants and its larger, clearer screen allows for a better presentation for value-added services.
