Staying on top of payments technology trends is essential to our clients. Last week Card Systems participated in TRANSACT 15, the annual meeting of the Electronic Transactions Association held in San Fransciso. During the event, Intel Technology and Ingenico made an announcement regarding their partnership to help protect our transactions, run our businesses more efficiently, and give usable analytics and solutions to the payment space. This photo captured the announcement made by Doug Davis, Vice President at Internet of Things Group (Intel) and Ingenico Chairman and CEO, Phillippe Lazare regarding a collaboration to bring new POS systems and devices to transform the payment space. They predicted over 50 billion devices will be connected by 2020! Partnerships like Intel and Ingenico provide new avenues of innovation for all merchants to be successful while ensuring peace of mind for cardholders.
