“Atos Worldline launches its first contactless portable terminal in Europe”

Paris, 5 November 2012

YOXIMO sets new standard with its screen integrated contactless reader

Atos Worldline, Atos core expertise in Hi-Tech transactional services, launches its first contactless portable terminal, YOXIMO, a new European standard in portable contactless payment terminals. Its integrated contactless reader in the colour screen, the latest PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliance and the unique revolving PIN privacy shield offer faster transaction times and ease of use.

 

YOXIMO retains the unique, patented PIN protection to provide the only assured PIN protection available on the market in a portable device. Its PIN protection is unique and underlines the importance Atos Worldline places on security in its payment devices. The colour display is large and has an integrated NFC (Near Field Communication) reader, exceptional in the market of portable terminals. The terminal complies with the latest PCI 3 standard, as well as to the SRED (Secure Reading and Exchange of Data) standard – a new certification standard necessary for point-to-point encryption.

 

YOXIMO's enhanced features include:

  • Contactless technology on board
  • New communication options including GPRS and WiFi as well as Bluetooth and 3G
  • Extremely fast thanks to powerful Atos developed chip inside
  • Ultra secure by its unique revolving PIN privacy shield
  • Impressive color display and extended battery life

“Contactless terminals are gaining in market traction as we witness that 90% of our latest terminal models are shipped with a contactless antenna. Atos Worldline aims to stay ahead of customer demands in terms of mobility, speed, security and contactless payments. We believe that YOXIMO responds to the latest demands and is the best-in-class contactless terminal”, says Antoine van Diem, General Manager Technology & Products at Atos Worldline.

 

A live demonstration of the new terminal will be held during Salon Cartes that takes place in Paris from 6 – 9 November.
