Hypercom Unveils R3210 Contactless Reader
Paris, Cartes & IDentification 2009, November 16, 2009
Hypercom Corporation (NYSE: HYC) today unveiled
its state-of-the-art R3210 contactless reader for payment and value-added transactions such as gift/loyalty, pre-paid, ticketing
and access control. The compact, high performance R3210 features an innovative clip-on, countertop or wall-mount design and easy
plug & play set-up that allows merchants using Hypercomís Optimum terminals to upgrade their current device to accept mobile payments
and other contactless transactions. The R3210 offers fast and secure contactless capability for stand-alone terminals or integrated
payment solutions at quick service restaurants, convenience stores, pharmacies, gas stations and newspaper kiosks, as well as sports
venues and public transit environments.
"With the R3210, we are introducing an intelligent, smart choice for thousands of merchants that want to improve their customer service
and sales volume by accepting contactless payments. Whether they want to invest in contactless technology today or in the future, the R3210
lets them do just that with a reader designed specifically for retailers worldwide" said Olivier Moraillon, PIN Pad and Contactless Global
Product Manager, Hypercom Corporation.
Contactless payments provide key benefits to retailers and consumers in high transaction volume environments where speed is of the essence.
The processing time for contactless transactions is considerably shorter than for contact card transactions and the added convenience and
efficiency this provides benefits both cardholders and merchants. Additionally, the speed provided by contactless technology is projected
to help drive the increased use of loyalty and other value added applications.
Hypercom's R3210 contactless reader meets the latest industry security standards, is powered by a high speed 32-bit RISC-based processor,
and incorporates Hypercom's TMS remote software management for unmatched reliability and ease of use. The unit features optional features
such as a high contrast backlit display, and dual RS-232 port for extended connectivity.
