I Love Velvet, the Mobile Point-of-Sale (MPOS) hardware and software innovator for large retailers, restaurant chains, and leisure and entertainment groups today launches its newest line of MPOS devices featuring full integration with the latest Apple Lightning (8 pin) connector. The sleek MPOS devices are fully compatible with all of Apple’s latest devices that feature the Lighting connector, including the fourth generation iPad, iPad mini, iPhone 5 and iPod touch. I Love Velvet’s compatibility with Lightning connectors gives retailers access to faster performance relative to other MPOS solutions that use Bluetooth technology.
“Widespread adoption of MPOS solutions has been stalled by concerns of the staff training burden, ease-of-use, and whether the systems offers greater security than the gang of casual mobile payment services on the market,” said Patrick Bouaziz, CVO, I Love Velvet. “Our integration of Apple’s Lightning Connector into our latest MPOS devices underlines our commitment to offer our large retail clients the flexibility to use any Apple devices currently available, removing a key hurdle of device specification and staff training while maintaining the unparalleled high level of security we have become well-known for.”
I Love Velvet offers a fully integrated MPOS solution designed to help retailers get sales people out from behind cash registers to better serve and engage with customers. This heightened interaction with purchasers ultimately maximizes sales, optimizes operational efficiency, and helps organizations gain critical consumer insights. Using proprietary software that integrates seamlessly with existing legacy POS and CRM systems, retailers can manage their inventory and staff performance in real time while gaining rich CRM data insights.
I Love Velvet’s hardware provides retailers with the widest range of MPOS transactions with the ability to execute credit card and bank debit card swipes; European Chip & Pin cards; RFID (Radio Frequency ID); NFC (Near Field Communication) and 2-D bar code scanning. In addition, I Love Velvet offers organizations the highest levels of security (EMV 1 & 2 certified and PCI-PTS compliant) and enhanced encryption with the ability to offer SAM chip injection.
