Ingenico Group to Introduce New Bluetooth Mobile Card Reader and Discuss Emerging Payment Trends at ETA TRANSACT 2017

Ingenico Group enables secure contactless and EMV mobile payment acceptance with new Bluetooth EMV chip & sign mobile card reader

Atlanta, GA – May 3, 2017 – Ingenico Group (Euronext: FR0000125346 - ING), the global leader in seamless payment, today announced it will be exhibiting at the ETA TRANSACT 2017 conference, taking place May 10-12, 2017 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. The company will be introducing the RP450BT, a versatile mobile card reader, which expands upon its robust line of secure EMV-ready mobile solutions.

The key features of the RP450BT include “Just Works” pairing for seamless Bluetooth coupling, an innovative design to increase stability and portability, standard compatibility with hundreds of iOS and Android handhelds, and more. Also available with the card reader are two docking options: a desktop cradle and a device clip-on. The cradle provides the flexibility to use the RP450BT as a desktop reader and connects the device either wirelessly or via USB. The clip-on accessory allows merchants to seamlessly attach the device to a smartphone or tablet via a small plate, which has a minimal footprint when the RP450BT is not being used.

In addition, two Ingenico Group executives will be presenting on the following emerging payment topics:

  • The Omni-Channel Revolution, a panel on the state of global technology adoption, the evolving customer purchase journey, and the emerging payment acceptance trends and players from across the globe, featuring Ingenico Group's Jacques Guérin, executive vice president, North America – Wednesday, May 10, 11:00-11:50 a.m. PT
  • Global Alternative Payments Now Exceed Traditional Credit Card Use, a panel on how the over 330 alternative payment methods are shaping the way consumers pay, featuring Ingenico ePayments’ Andrew Monroe, director of business development, North America – Wednesday, May 10, 2:00-2:50 p.m. PT
  • Security and Integrated Payments, a panel during the ISV/Integrated Payments Workshop featuring Ingenico Group's Rob Martin, vice president, security solutions, software development and QA – Wednesday, May 10, 3:45-4:30 p.m. PT

Ingenico Group will also showcase a range of its innovative payment solutions at booth #1008. Highlights include:
