Ingenico launches Self-Modular, the world’s first PCI certified unattended modular configuration, extending its portfolio to cover all verticals
Paris, 17 January 2021 – Ingenico, a Worldline brand, confirms its leadership in unattended payments with the launch of Self-Modular, the world’s first unattended POS modular configuration to achieve PCI PTS v6 certification. This latest addition to the Ingenico Self Series portfolio of solutions means the range now comprehensively covers all verticals - such as vending, EV charging, transportation, parking and ticketing kiosks, for both indoor and outdoor use cases.
The self-service market has seen strong growth in recent years, particularly during the pandemic, with new use cases emerging as well as an increased user demand for efficiency, convenience, speed and safety. In parallel, the rapid adoption of contactless payments across the world, combined with the increase in authorised payment limits have brought greater flexibility along with new development opportunities for the unattended payment sector.
Ingenico’s Self-Modular POS is an innovative modular configuration with two – instead of the usual three – highly ruggedised modules designed to withstand harsh environments for outdoor and/or intensive usage. Its patented innovations contribute to ease implementation for integrators and improve ergonomics for users.
Based on the robust TETRA OS and sharing the same environment as other offerings in the Self Series, the Self-Modular can be easily integrated into any existing kiosk thanks to its compactness and flexible dual module configuration.
The Self/8000 (EPP and contactless) and Self/7000 (smart hybrid contact reader) join the Self Series which includes the "all-in-one" terminals (Self/2000, Self/4000 et Self/5000) that were successfully launched last year.
This range now offers integrators and customers a comprehensive and versatile range of solutions for equipping their kiosks, whatever the set up and wherever they are located.
“The Self Series, which includes innovative unattended devices and an unrivalled suite of payment and business services, is unique in this rapidly growing market as it addresses all self-service use cases. Thanks to its PCI PTSv6 certification and its scalable architecture, the Self Series is truly future-proof," says Vincent Bernard, Head of Self-Service Products at Worldline TSS.
Michel Léger, EVP Solutions and Innovation at Worldline TSS confirms the importance of unattended devices in today’s market trends: “The next step will be to facilitate the deployment and remote management of these unattended payment terminals in all countries where integrators want to deploy their kiosks. This is why the Self Series is natively compatible with our innovative and powerful PPaaS (Payments Platform as a Service) payments orchestration solution which will help support the growth of the self-service market and scale it in the most simple and efficient way.”
