Focus on a few highlights
Wetech has developed a range of connected accessories and jewellery (watches, bracelets, rings, necklaces, etc.), using wireless technology to be used as POS. The company has also created apps paired to their wearables, in order to control and secure them.
Companies such as TAS Group is helping to bring down barriers which exist in the field of cross-border payments by simplifying the validation and processing of this type of operation by taking into account the local regulations and commercial practices. As for Snapswap, the company combines mobile messenger app functions (such as Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp) with digital wallet and peer-to-peer transactions (such as PayPal) into a single app called Gloneta.
Another field where innovation is particularly impressive is biometrics; companies such as Flexenable and Innovatrics both integrate digital fingerprint readers on smart cards in order to increase security and broaden their functionalities.
Point of sale terminals
The main stakeholders on this market, such as Spire Payments, XAC Automation and Verifone with " Carbon" will present the latest generation of point of sale terminals. These latest products now include advanced functionalities, access to the cloud and the availability of various apps.
