Electronic payment solution provider Blue Bamboo has announced over 60 Apple MFi (Made for iPhone, Made for iPad, and Made for iPod) applications are available on iTunes.
The company’s solutions have been implemented in a variety of environments. Examples include a distributor in Japan that uses Blue Bamboo’s P25i/M printer to connect with iPhone to print receipts “over the air” via Bluetooth. A Portuguese taxi company leverages the P25i to connect with the iPad used for dispatch and customer payments. Blue Bamboo enables our partners to offer mobile credit and debit card payment acceptance and paper receipts anywhere, anytime.
Justin Anderson, Chief Marketing Officer, commented, “The overwhelming response from app developers is indicative of the value of our PocketPOS line of products and the deep and meaningful partnerships we support. Our goal is to supply robust, secure, reliable and cost effective products enabling our partners to quickly add value to their solutions.”
