Spire Payments is set to launch its SPx1, a next generation SmartPOS device, and its ‘Converge’ payment software framework.
The SPx1 SmartPOS is a milestone in the evolution of payment devices. Seamlessly running multiple applications, this EMV and PCI approved Android device offers an enriched consumer/merchant interaction point akin to a tablet or smart mobile device thanks to its 5.5 inch fully tactile touch screen and its real-time application download capability.
A wide variety of applications can co-reside on the SPx1, including payment, loyalty, hotel reservation, taxi services, couponing, product catalogues and the like, thereby promoting a rich interactive experience between consumer and merchant.
In addition, the SPx1 can also accommodate professional merchant applications such as inventory control, invoicing and receipt management capabilities, as well as data analytics to help streamline the merchant’s business processes.
The ‘Converge’ software platform will now be at the heart of all of Spire’s payments’ innovations – whether it be a device, an application or a service. ‘Converge’ allows Spire to infuse its wealth of payments experience in everything that it does.
The SPx1 is a significant addition to our award winning SP range of payment solutions and delivers a fully-tactile and feature-rich interaction point for consumers and merchants,” says Kazem Aminaee, CEO and President of Spire Payments.
“Of equal significance is the launch of our new software framework, ‘Converge’, which promotes the proliferation of innovative, secure and reliable payment solutions. Our first implementation of ‘Converge’ is on the highly advanced SPx1 device and this is truly a milestone in the development of Spire Payments as a leader in financial technology.”
