Ingenico 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 NFC-enabled terminals, signature capture devices, magnetic strip readers, check readers, smart cards, and receipt printers. Ingenico serves customers of all sizes, from small independent stores to multinational corporations. Ingenico Corp. is the North American subsidiary of France-based Ingenico S.A., a leading European maker of electronic payment systems.
As part of its growth strategy, the company offers payment systems designed to process high-tech forms of payment that are growing in popularity. Such systems include NFC terminals that accept payments from NFC-enabled mobile phones and terminals that verify EMV-secure payment cards containing microchips.
Prior to its acquisition by Ingenico, the company did business in the US as Checkmate and IVI Checkmate.
