Viva Wallet embeds payments into Elo mobile Android computers
By Gloria Methri
Viva Wallet, a European cloud-based neobank has teamed with Elo, a global supplier of interactive touch solutions, to pioneer a new retail payments experience.
European businesses can now accept Chip & PIN and Tap-on-Phone contactless payments by combining Viva Wallet’s embedded payments platform for smart devices, with Elo M50 and M60 Pay mobile computers.
The Viva Wallet and Elo alliance, featuring additional omnichannel solutions, has gone live in Europe with plans to expand globally, including the US.
Integrating Viva Wallet’s technology with the handheld solutions from Elo transforms the point of sale into enterprise-grade tools – an advanced terminal that is Level 3 certified, accepting over 30 different payment methods.
In addition, the device facilitates ticketing, inventory management, delivery tracking, price checking, and other retail operations tasks due to a powerful processor and an optional integrated barcode scanner.
This partnership translates into greater systems consolidation, streamlined operations, enhanced security, and a seamless customer journey, across various verticals – from retail and grocery to hospitality, entertainment, and logistics.
Viva Wallet and Elo’s joint additional omnichannel solutions enhance both the online and in-store retail experience, enabling businesses to optimize operations and boost conversions.
Elo’s diversified hardware portfolio integrated with Viva Wallet’s “plug-and-play” payments technology applies to all end-customer touchpoints.
“Viva Wallet is the first in Europe to enable payments on any smart device – from mobile terminals to smart mirrors and self-checkout units. We enable consolidation and less hassle for all businesses that accept payments, with the use of a single device, while introducing new innovative payment use cases across every industry. Our aim is to enable frictionless omnichannel payments for all, anywhere,” said Harry Xenophontos, director of global strategic partnerships at Viva Wallet.
“We are pleased to team up with Viva Wallet to offer businesses the possibility to accept payments in-store or on the go,” said Maarten Bais, vice president and general manager of EMEA of Elo. “Our Android-based portfolio is used by world-class retail, restaurant, and manufacturing brands around the globe for applications from POS, self-checkout, and self-order to endless aisle and automation. Leveraging Viva Wallet’s innovative solutions to include fully integrated payments adds tremendous benefits for all customers.”
