Mint Wireless Limited (MNW) is pleased to announce a signed partnership agreement with IT Providers Limited. The partnership sees IT Providers integrating its EirpointTM Mobile retail solution set to the Mint Enterprise software. This allows UK and Irish users of IT Providers software to accept payments using mobile devices, through the Mint Managed Payment Service, which will provide both ongoing monthly licence fees and transaction revenue for Mint.
The combined solution will initially go live on the Motorola MC75 and MC70 mobile computing devices and will utilise the Motorola DCR7X00-200R, an EMV chip & PIN “snap on”. The collective solution provides any Retailer and Field Services business with a fully functional Mobile POS and Payment solution. The first customer to take advantage of the Mint Payment Service will be an exclusive outdoor clothing specialist, who plans to enhance their UK and Ireland outdoor retailing business with this innovative technology. By using the solution at outdoor events they will be able to take card payments, securely, quickly and efficiently, resulting in enhanced customer satisfaction and an increase in sales.
IT Providers, Managing Director, Niall Cannon, commented: “We see the integration of our EirpointTM Mobile software to the Mint Enterprise Client and Managed Payment Service as a significant enhancement to our product suite. As specialists in Retail software we were regularly getting queries about card acceptance on mobile devices and subsequently sought out a partner who could help us deliver a best of breed solution. After investigating possible providers in the market, we decided to partner with Mint as we were delighted with their expertise in the mobile payments area and our mutual Motorola partnership meant they were the perfect fit for us. We are excited about the joint offering as we feel it could really be the answer to a lot of our customers problems and enhance their businesses considerably.”
