As part of this we are offering this new feature-rich machine at the same price point as our existing terminals.

“Smart and adaptable payment devices play a key part in the future of business in the UK, and so, the majority of our new readers going forward will run on an Android OS. By using these new machines, all our clients will benefit from a solution that is future-proofed, and which also includes tools that will make it easier for them to run and grow their business.”

The company stated that the UTP Pro terminal will come with an Electronic Point of Sale (EPoS) application as standard, along with a reporting app that will give live updates to the user. This will allow them to easily see such statistics as the value and volume of transactions that each reader has processed.
