VeriFone Systems Inc. is supplying retailer Beall's Inc. with customer-facing point-of-sale devices that feature color displays and the capacity to adapt to changes in payments, the San Jose, Calif.-based vendor announced.
The space-saving devices, called the MX 915, are from the MX 900 series, which was introduced in January, VeriFone said in an Aug. 13 press release.
Beall's also is using VeriFone HQ, an estate management offering that helps the chain keep stores up to date with changes in mobile payments.
The MX 900 series is designed to keep pace with changes in mobile wallets, near-field communication, the EMV smart-card standard and alternative payment methods, VeriFone said in the release.
Beall's decision to install these devices "sets the framework for Beall's to readily adapt to future mobile/NFC and EMV supporting a full complement of payment transactions," Dave Massey, Beall's senior vice president and chief information officer, said in the press release.
Beall's Inc. is the parent company of Beall's Department Stores Inc., Beall's Outlet Stores Inc. and Burke's Outlet Stores LLC. The corporation, through its subsidiaries, operates more than 530 stores in states across the Sun Belt, from Florida to California.
