VeriFone Systems recently announced it has been awarded a contract to supply the Beall's, Inc., retail chain with the recently introduced MX 915, VeriFone's advanced payment and media-enabled solutions system in a space-saving form factor.
Beall's also will be complementing the MX 915 with VeriFone HQ, an advanced estate management solution allowing them to easily keep stores up to date with evolving payment and mobile solutions.
Introduced in January, the MX 915 is one of the first models in the new customer-facing MX 900 series, with a brilliant 4.3" color display, powerful processor and generous memory. MX 900 Series systems provide the broadest compatibility available with rapidly evolving mobile/NFC wallets, EMV smartcards, and alternative payment methods, and easily adapt as more payment methods are introduced.
"We were delighted with MX 915 and the alignment with our store systems modernization project to provide flexible payment solutions to our family of Outlet stores," said Dave Massey SVP/CIO. "As a customer facing device, we are pleased with the new sleek lines of the device and the crisp color display. From the technical perspective, this solution sets the framework for Beall's to readily adapt to future mobile/NFC and EMV supporting a full complement of payment transactions. Additionally, Beall's will be taking advantage of the VeriFone HQ software to facilitate our management of these devices."
Beall's, Inc. is the parent company of Beall's Department Stores, Inc, Beall's Outlet Stores, Inc., and Burke's Outlet Stores, LLC. The corporation, through its subsidiaries, operates over 530 retail store sites in states across the Sun Belt, from Florida to California.
"Beall's recognizes that multimedia-enabled payment solutions create intelligent interaction between retailers and consumers," said Jennifer Miles, VeriFone executive vice president, North America. "With VeriFone's MX 900 series, retailers are prepared for the new era of NFC apps and EMV payments and can push relevant content to consumers on the fly, accept mobile wallets, offer digital couponing and loyalty programs, and connect with location-based social media."
