VeriFone, Xpient Integrate POS Solutions for Restaurants

Payment systems interface with POS ordering systems tailored to QSR, casual-dining markets

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- VeriFone Systems Inc., and Xpient Solutions have announced the integration of VeriFone's customer-engagement acceptance systems with Xpient's IRIS point-of-sale (POS) software to provide intuitive ordering and payment solutions for the quick-service and fast-casual restaurant segments.

IRIS is a cost-effective, easy to use, flexible POS application that is readily adaptable to quick-service, fast-casual, family or casual-dining businesses. By using IRIS integrated with VeriFone's customer-facing payment acceptance systems, restaurant operators will be able to improve efficiency and provide patrons with an engaging and convenient experience. With VeriFone's VeriShield Protect end-to-end encryption technology and EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa)-capable acceptance systems, restaurants will be prepared to adapt to changing security mandates and the upcoming liability shift accompanying implementation of EMV requirements.

"Utilizing VeriFone systems with Xpient IRIS provides an enhanced service for patrons and fully secure payment acceptance solution for restaurant operators," said Xpient president and CEO Christopher Sebes.

Restaurant operators, integrators and resellers will be able to pair Xpient IRIS with VeriFone's multimedia-enabled MX 915 and MX 925 systems to deliver real-time order confirmation, combined with marketing content and prompts for additional item selection suggestions. The VeriFone VX 820 PIN pad provides a secure, yet more traditional customer payment point integrated with IRIS.

"Consumers increasingly demand both convenience and an engaging experience at the point of sale," said Jennifer Miles, president, VeriFone Americas. "VeriFone's VX Solutions and MX Solutions provide new opportunities to leverage Xpient's software to more dynamically engage customers and prepare for a new era of EMV payments."

IRIS POS affords unlimited options to support distinctive business requirements. Uniquely configurable touch screen technology speeds employee training and performance as well as optimizing order accuracy and speed-of-service. All three VeriFone systems support credit, debit and EMV transactions, and include integrated NFC/contactless technology for emerging alternative payments and digital wallets.
