Austin & Salt Lake City to get ISIS App first

Isis, the joint venture between AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless, have announced that VeriFone, Ingenico, ViVOtech and Equinox Payments will integrate and support the Isis Mobile Commerce Application in current and future product lines.

The companies have also agreed that their sales, marketing and implementation teams will collaborate to target large retail and petroleum/convenience merchants in previously announced Isis launch markets of Salt Lake City and Austin. The agreements with leading payment systems providers will help accelerate the wide scale introduction and adoption of mobile commerce.

“Payment systems suppliers provide critical infrastructure for the development of mobile commerce,” said Scott Mulloy, chief technology officer, Isis“Today’s announcement is an important step in enabling NFC technology adoption throughout the mobile commerce industry. It also validates the open platform approach being offered by Isis across multiple business sectors.”

“The importance of mobile payments cannot be overstated,” said Clint Jones, Equinox Payments president“and Equinox is pleased to join Isis at the forefront of the development of these very important technologies. The Isis Mobile Commerce Application is an excellent complement to our next-generation NFC-enabled L5000 series of payment terminals. Collaborations such as this provide Equinox with even more opportunities to provide our customers with new ways to leverage the tremendous benefits that mobile commerce has to offer.”

Payment device suppliers will enable Isis mobile commerce across several of their product lines, offering merchants flexibility in how they upgrade to Isis-enabled payment terminals. Merchants will become Isis-enabled through a combination of new payment acceptance systems and NFC add-ons devices, as well as remote software upgrades of certain devices already in the field.

“As a global payment terminal manufacturer, we welcome Isis’ open approach of mobile commerce to engage with as many stakeholders of the payments ecosystem as possible. It is the most effective way to bring consumers and merchants the best in engineering innovation, convenience and security of payments,” said Thierry Denis, president of Ingenico, North America. “For 30 years, merchants relied on our terminals as enablers of traditional and innovative payment methods. Today, together with Isis, we are ready to support the acceptance of NFC-enabled payments on our new generation Telium series devices and, in turn, be the agents of mobile commerce.”

“We are excited about the opportunity help launch Isis with retailers in Salt Lake and Austin and we are ready to provide the expertise and services necessary for a national rollout,” said Jennifer Miles, VeriFone executive vice president, North America. “VeriFone customers will be able to leverage the integration of the mobile experience to engage consumers with new payment options, couponing, and loyalty services.”

VeriFone will layer Isis interfaces and user experience onto its pre-existing integration at hundreds of thousands of merchant locations in the United States, alongside traditional payment forms. Merchants will become Isis ReadyTM through a combination of new payment systems and NFC add-ons devices, as well as remote software upgrades of certain devices already in the field.

“Payment systems at the point of sale provide crucial infrastructure for the development of mobile commerce,” said Mulloy, “Our work with VeriFone helps bring to market the product and technical capabilities critical to success, but more importantly leverages VeriFone’s massive U.S. footprint to turn on Isis quickly and easily at large merchants.”
