Gloucestershire, UK (19th November, 2012) – G4S Technology’s GiroVend, the market-leading brand for cashless payment solutions, has released brand new ‘tap & go’ hardware.
The new Electronic Point of Sale (EPOS) desktop reader allows the user to simply ‘tap’ their card against the reader to enable payment rather than inserting the card, providing a faster service to complete the transaction.
Stewart Angell, UK Managing Director, G4S Technology, said:
“As the market-leading brand for cashless payment solutions, GiroVend has over 20 years’ experience across a diverse range of sectors and the introduction of this new ‘tap & go’ technology to the system provides a quick and more convenient service for the user.”
Graham Hunter, Technical Services Director, G4S Technology, added:
“Retailers and consumers are becoming more familiar with ‘tap & go’ technology and we wanted to offer this feature to our GiroVend customers as soon as possible. These new readers in the GiroVend range will speed up payments and help consumers beat the queues at the checkout.
“This new addition to the GiroVend range offers a truly comprehensive solution for cashless payment for both employees and visitors. GiroVend also integrates with G4S Technology’s market-leading Symmetry range of access control systems.”
The ‘tap & go’ reader is available as a desktop reader for EPOS and for vending with both Multi Drop Bus (MDB) and Executive (Protocol A) options. The readers are compatible with all HID Proximity and iClass Smart access control cards.
The new hardware will be supported at sites that are running GiroVend online version 3.2R2 software as a minimum.
