ROAM Launches its New Mobile Commerce Platform Enabling mPOS Management for Businesses
Jan 13 14
ROAM announced that its new mobile payments engine, ROAMmcm 5, is now available in the U.S. ROAMmcm 5 is the first enterprise-ready mobile point of sale (mPOS) solution and the first EMV-ready solution that enables businesses to quickly deploy and centrally manage global mPOS environments. By supporting EMV-based transactions, such as chip & PIN and chip & signature, ROAM enables businesses to extend their mobile strategies into new geographic markets. Majority owned by Ingenico, ROAM can also fully leverage Ingenico's expanded geographical presence and large customer base to successfully deploy ROAMmcm 5 outside the US. By addressing the security and management concerns associated with large-scale mPOS, ROAMmcm 5 enables even the most risk-averse enterprises to start capitalizing on the immense mobile commerce market opportunity. ROAMmcm 5 enables organizations to: Board large fleets of users and easily configure user profiles, policies and roles; Manage multiple mobile devices running multiple operating systems and applications; Reduce fraud risk by setting up custom risk profiles and pre-processing controls; Integrate with back-end enterprise systems such as inventory, accounting, and ERP; View real-time reports of all transactions, refunds and account activity; Integrate with value-added services such as digital wallets and loyalty programs; and Empower end users to manage the things that are important to their business -- such as product catalogs, reporting, refunds and receipts. The need for an enterprise-ready mPOS solution is further supported by Yankee Group's latest US IT decision-maker survey, showing that close to one-third of merchants with 500 or more employees plan to do deploy mPOS within the next 12 months. ROAMmcm 5 is currently in limited release in the U.S., and will be generally available by the end of First Quarter 2014. ROAM will publicly demonstrate ROAMmcm 5 for the first time in the U.S. at Retail's Big Show in New York City on January 12-15.
