Friday 28 November 2003 08:40 CET | News

Canadian Datawest Solutions has completed development of a new version of the Hypercom ICE 5500 terminal application that enables retailers to sell prepaid cellular airtime to consumers via POS terminals.

At present, Datawest operates over 3,300 Hypercom ICE 5500 terminals and has over 5,200 POS terminals on its financial transaction processing switch. Earlier this year, Datawest announced an agreement with Now Prepay, to provide a new value-added product via point of sale (POS) terminals. The solution permits VendTeks e-Fresh software application for prepaid telecommunications products (including wireless service) and financial services to be offered on Hypercom POS terminals that Datawest has deployed to retailers through Independent Sales Organizations. Datawest previously certified the e-Fresh software on Ingenico and Verifone POS terminals enabling customers to use Now Prepays application along with specific Datawest payment applications. e-Fresh is compatible with debit and credit card payment applications and does not compromise security or ease of use for the consumer.
