Equinox Payments Partners with Infinite Peripherals to Offer Mobile iOS Payment Solution

Equinox Payments, LLC has partnered with Infinite Peripherals, Inc. (IPC). Equinox can now offer a mobile payment solution that is compatible with Apple(R) iOS by integrating IPC's Linea Pro(TM) for the iPod touch(R) or iPhone(R), or the Infinea Tab(R) for the iPad(R). Empowering Apple handheld devices with a barcode scanner and a magnetic stripe reader, both the Linea Pro and Infinea Tab work with custom software to create a mobile system for POS, as well as inventory management, asset tracking, ID verification and lead tracking. To date, IPC has deployed more than 300,000 of its mobile POS devices nationwide. Under the terms of the agreement, IPC will be able to offer its customers remote key injection capabilities on its POS-related devices, utilizing the Equinox Remote Key Injection (RKI) platform and thereby maximizing convenience, efficiency and cost-effectiveness. As the pioneer in standards-based RKI and security management, Equinox's robust technology can securely update cryptographic keys and activate application features without the costly and time-consuming need to remove a device from the store and ship it to a secure key injection facility.
