Claim Jumper Restaurants LLC is buying VeriFone Vx670 wireless point-of-sale terminals for use at its 45 restaurants, VeriFone Holdings Inc. announced today. San Jose, Calif.-based VeriFone says Claim Jumper will use the terminals inside the restaurants and for takeout orders that customers take with them. Servers bring the payment terminal to the patron, who then swipes the credit or debit card through the device, eliminating the need for the server to take the card from the patron. Irvine, Calif.-based Claim Jumper already has begun deploying the terminals for curbside service, a VeriFone spokesperson says. A Claim Jumper spokesperson says the terminals are in use at two locations for curbside pick-up exclusively. "We plan on having them available at all locations by the end of the year for our curbside service," he says. Claim Jumper becomes one of the latest restaurants to use wireless terminals. VeriFone says it does not have a tally of how many restaurants use the technology. "We really can't provide a hard figure currently because there is a mix of rollouts and pilots, so it would be counting apples and oranges in one basket," the VeriFone spokesperson says. He characterized the market as experiencing "moderate" growth. "There are many pilots under way and many restaurants who are considering pilots," he adds.
