The Carphone Warehouse Group PLC has choosen Verifone, to deliver an Chip and PIN upgrade solution based on the SC 5000 programmable smart card secure customer-facing device.

A total of 3,000 SC 5000s are being rolled out throughout all Carphone Warehouse stores in the UK, to comply with EMV specifications that came into full effect with the 1st January 2005 liability shift. VeriFone was chosen to upgrade the EPoS estate because of its expertise in customising solutions to the needs of its customers. The Carphone Warehouse required a dual function secure customer-facing device that, in addition to handling EMV-compliant card transactions, would facilitate the SIM card back-up application that all of its stores offer to customers. VeriFone’s bespoke Chip and PIN upgrade solution included specially written software that enables The Carphone Warehouse to continue its SIM back-up service, while benefiting from the SC 5000’s secure and user-friendly transactions.
