Lenovo and VeriFone launch mobile POS platform

ThinkPad Mobile POS

The new mobile POS platform for retail stores, dubbed ThinkPad Mobile POS, is built on the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet and a version of VeriFone’s PAYware Mobile Enterprise for Tablet payment solution (view press release). The new solution enables retailers to configure, customise and mange a mobile end-to-end POS platform that provides more flexibility than stationary registers. Retailers can manage the solution remotely for functions such as individual device tracking, managing applications, checking status of individual units and wiping and resetting devices. Unlike consumer tablets, retailers have control over the tablet operating system allowing them to determine what can run on the device when it is upgraded. Lenovo describes the tablet as the retailer’s ‘mobile workhorse,’ powering functions such as customer service, store management, analytics, inventory control and scheduling.

Mobile solutions are enabling retailers to reimagine the point of sale and Lenovo’s ThinkPad Tablet solution with PAYware Mobile Enterprise makes it possible to engage customers in the aisle or wherever goods are being sold,” said VeriFone executive vice president of North America, Jennifer Miles.
