In the palm of a merchant’s hand, Carbon Mobile 5 enables checkout and the ability to run Android apps such as point of sale, loyalty and inventory management. It will be available with and without an integrated printer, and both variations come with the advanced feature set necessary to support in-aisle sales, clienteling, endless aisle solutions and much more.
“We’re seeing our global merchant partners increasingly dedicating resources to the customer experience. Through one-to-one customer interactions and targeted programs, retail leaders are demanding technology to personalize the shopping experience,” said Julie Johnson, SVP of global product management. “The priority is to get to know the customer, and Carbon Mobile 5 provides the platform to engage customers and ‘do it all’ from a single, mobile device.”
The Carbon family goes beyond payments with Verifone Connect, an adaptable, end-to-end product that not only enables payment acceptance, but allows businesses to increase consumer engagement and drive efficiency. With features including payment services, estate management, and merchant- and consumer-facing apps, Connect enables merchants to manage and grow their business.
Abizar Vakharia, SVP of global solutions, added, “Verifone Connect is a customizable product from which merchants will find value in different features, but let’s look at loyalty as a specific example. Through Verifone Connect, a large merchant with a complex CRM program can integrate with Carbon Mobile 5, then access that data when they engage customers in the aisle. Small business owners, on the other hand, can begin the loyalty journey with a simple, ‘download-and-go’ loyalty app offered by one of our developer partners.”
The foundation of this scalable solution is Verifone Trusted Android, a locked-down version of Android 7 OS. With cardholder data secured by Verifone’s Engage payment engine, Carbon Mobile 5 provides merchants safe access to the Android developer ecosystem to integrate business apps with existing systems.
Key Carbon Mobile 5 features include:
- Verifone Trusted Android + Engage secure payment engine
- PCI PTS 5.x, SRED, supports AES DUKPT
- 5” HD IPS capacitive touchscreen
- Fast 5 MP barcode scanner with illumination and aimer
- Fast printing and charging capabilities with multi-unit charger
- 4G LTE, dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth with BLE / beacons
- Replaceable battery lasts up to 16 hours of continuous use
