Ingenico Group announces availability of new smart terminal for the Canadian market
TORONTO -- Ingenico Group has announced that TD Merchant Solutions has become the first acquirer in Canada to provide its customers with its next generation Telium TETRA smart terminals. The first device available is the Desk/5000, a large touch-screen, counter-top smart terminal. TD will also be launching additional models from the TETRA suite, including the Move (wireless), the Lane (in-lane retail) and the Link (mobile) devices.
This initiative is part of TD's program to offer its large merchant base with the broadest forms of payment acceptance along with a best-in-class user experience. TD is also working on implementing Ingenico Group’s Marketplace, which will enable merchants to leverage a wealth of business applications directly on the terminals as early as 2018.
“We are very excited to have our next generation Telium TETRA solutions live in Canada as it represents a big step in the evolution of the payment experience for both businesses and their customers,” said Suzan Denoncourt, managing director of Canada for Ingenico Group. “TD Merchant Solutions has been an extremely valuable partner in introducing this offering to Canada. We look forward to seeing their merchants benefit from the latest payment technology along with the additional value-add it will bring once various business applications are enabled.”
Ingenico Group's Telium TETRA offering represents a unique ecosystem where payment and business applications can be present on the same device, which provides payment service providers a breakthrough in how they operate their fleet while transitioning to the digital age. To insure the safety of customer data, the new, future-proof operating system embeds powerful and innovative security mechanisms to bridge secure payment with an open web-based environment. For merchants, the Telium TETRA platform provides a user-friendly interface and access to HTML5 applications enabling their terminals to run third-party applications ranging from rewards programs to employee time tracking and customer satisfaction surveys, among others.
