Ingenico Corp. wants to make a swipe across the North American electronic payment market. The company develops and sells electronic payment hardware and software for the finance, health care, hospitality, retail, and transportation industries. Its point-of-sale terminals and scanners verify check, debit, and credit payments. Other products include signature capture devices, magnetic strip readers, check readers, receipt printers, and smart cards. Ingenico Corp. is the North American subsidiary of France-based Ingenico, a leading European maker of electronic payment systems.
Prior to its acquisition by Igenico, the company did business in the US as Checkmate and IVI Checkmate. It claims that more transactions in the US originate on its terminals than any other rival.
Ingenico provides a range of products and customers of all sizes, from small independent stores and retailers to large, global corporations.
