Isis, a mobile commerce company founded by AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless, recently announced that payment terminal manufacturers and software providers are incorporating Isis SmartTap capabilities into their POS offerings.
Companies integrating SmartTap into their product lines include ID TECH, OTI Global, PAX Technology, Uniform Industrial Corporation, and XAC Automation Corporation.
Isis SmartTap is an exclusive mobile commerce software specification that utilizes near field communications (NFC) technology. The protocol can be utilized in environments such as mass transit, fuel pumps, taxis, restaurants and retail stores.
“NFC is the international standard for mobile payments,” said Jim Stapleton, Chief Sales Officer of Isis. “The proliferation of SmartTap capabilities at the point of sale takes mobile payments one step further, providing rich commerce features that offer an effortless consumer experience and drive engagement and loyalty in a way previously not possible. By providing Isis Ready solutions, POS, payment terminal and reader providers can deliver innovative technologies that will benefit merchants for years to come.”
SmartTap enables Isis Mobile Wallet app users to pay, present loyalty cards and redeem offers in a single transaction. Any SmartTap supported POS system automatically recognizes and adds points to loyalty cards that are loaded in the app.
