Ingenico Group has announced that its Axium D7 ECR-POS has achieved Google Mobile Services certification, making it the world’s first secure POS terminal to meet GMS requirements and properly run applications by Google.
Ingenico said the certification demonstrates that a secure POS can offer a similar user experience to that of a smartphone or tablet. Google Mobile Services offers full access to applications from the Google Play Store along with a host of Google applications including Search, Chrome, YouTube and Google Maps, according to a press release.
Ingenico said the Android-based POS running GMS serves the growing demand from merchants who want to provide more services to their customers through a single device. GMS certification enables merchants to offer web browsing, online promotions and access to existing loyalty program apps, which can all work seamlessly together right out of the box.
The Axium D7 is in the process of being certified PCI PTS v5, currently the highest security standard in payments, according to the release.
