First US Company to Deliver In-Store Consumer Experience on Telium Tetra

 In News & Press Releases

Today, consumers want a fast, simple and secure purchasing experience whether they are in store, at home or on the street, whatever the device or technology. All this increases complexity for merchants eager to build a unique consumer experience to secure sales as soon as consumers have made their purchasing decision, increase conversion rates and offer value added services that support their brand promise.

With Telium Tetra, Ingenico Group launches a fully integrated commerce ecosystem where secure payment and an open world of business apps join, to enhance consumer experience and further create value for customers.

Telium Tetra Features

  • The new Telium Tetra Operating System
  • A new range of terminals: desk,lane, and move
  • Access to 2,500+ Payment Applications
  • The Estate Manager platform
  • The Marketplace of merchant and consumer oriented apps (couponing, loyalty, digital marketing, cash register, …)

Building on the solid foundations of Ingenico’s Telium architecture, the new Telium Tetra Operating System combines 30 years of expertise in secure payment with the power and flexibility of web HTML5 technologies for the development of rich business applications.

Embarked in the new range of EMV/NFC native terminals, this new OS will be able to host both secured acceptance applications and an open-world business apps interface. Banks and merchants will also be able to easily manage and remotely update their estate during POS life cycle, through enriched functionalities available on the Estate Manager platform, including provisioning, connectivity, security or maintenance.

Leveraging on Ingenico Group’s comprehensive portfolio of 300+ payment methods, merchants will be able to accept all payment methods and devices, be it a card, a wallet (such as ApplePay or Google Wallet) or QR code payment.

Lastly, Telium Tetra will give merchants access to a wide range of third party business apps, enabling them to boost their activity and create new in store customer experiences. Available on the newly launched Ingenico Marketplace, these apps are being developed by local and international partners such as DigitasLBi, iMobile3 or Black Label.

“We are very pleased to expand our partnership with Ingenico Group beyond iBeacon initiatives. With our PassMarket mobile storefront available in the Ingenico Marketplace, we’ll accelerate the deployment of our solution beyond 100,000 merchants’ current locations. Making our apps directly available on terminals fulfills our partners’ wish to enable merchants to create a new and enhanced consumer engagement experience attracting new customers while increasing retention and frequency of visits.”

Bob Leonard, CEO of iMobile3
