COPENHAGEN, Denmark--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MONEY20/20 EUROPE – To help merchants of all sizes adapt to transforming and fast-moving business environments and changing consumer behavior, Verifone (NYSE:PAY) and Sage today announced that they will work together to offer integrated point-of-sale (POS) and business accounting solutions on Verifone Carbon 8.
Carbon 8 is an open, scalable and portable POS system that is capable of incorporating the Sage One accounting and payroll software with Verifone payment solutions to enable merchants such as bike and pastry shops, boutiques, and specialty food markets, with simple and easy-to-use business solutions they need to operate and grow.
“Our mission at Sage is to make administrative tasks for businesses invisible, giving them time to focus on what matters – their customers,” said Seamus Smith, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Payments and Banking at Sage. “The ability to integrate our accounting software into one sophisticated POS system like Carbon 8, will make it easier for businesses to accept all forms of payment, engage consumers, and manage their operations efficiently.”
“The point-of-sale today can do a lot more than accept payments and is becoming a critically important decision for merchants and their service providers to meet changing consumer expectations and dynamic retail environments,” said June Felix, president, Verifone Europe. “We are working with a market leader like Sage because retailers are in need of agile and intelligent solutions that can address industry challenges and help them adapt to change. Verifone’s open and secure commerce platform makes it possible for our partners to create and deliver their services on Carbon 8, Carbon 10 as well as Engage providing a complete experience for merchants and consumers.”
The two companies will collaborate to set up retailers with an end-to-end business solution that comes with a variety of applications such as accounting, payroll, real-time inventory management, and staffing tools as well as access to apps to customize their business and personalize customer experiences.
The Verifone Carbon series is powered by the Intel® high-speed chipset for fast processing to run and integrate any POS software and third party applications. Designed with dedicated merchant and consumer facing tablets for optimal business management and consumer engagement, Carbon will have access to the Verifone App Marketplace where merchants will be able to discover, purchase and install commerce apps and customize their device to personalize the customer experience.
