Ingenico Debuts Innovative Mobile Commerce Applications

Mobile Merchants to Conduct Business Anytime Anywhere Without Changing Phones or Carriers

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) -  Ingenico, the global leader in secure transaction and payment solutions, continues its innovative path to provide business owners and merchants with the most secure and scalable mobile commerce solutions. Today the company introduced Ingenico ROAM suite of mobile applications including ROAMpay and ROAMbuy to help sales agents, mobile workforce professionals, and merchants reach and service consumers on their own mobile phones.

"Ingenico's mobile applications work on virtually any mobile phone and allow merchants to leverage their existing investment in mobile technology without changing phones or networks," said Christopher Justice, president, North America. "Mobile Commerce represents the ultimate convenience for mobile users to conduct business anytime anywhere. Our products provide a robust and agile mix of mCommerce services including credit and debit payment acceptance, mobile storefront, and customized enterprise business applications to end users." 

Recently Ingenico made a global strategic investment to work with ROAM Data Inc., a Boston-based mobile application service provider and their technology to deliver a breakthrough mobile commerce solution. ROAM's patented technology enables it to be the only provider to dynamically deliver business and payment applications to nearly 200 million US customers, regardless of carrier on hundreds of different devices from smartphones to feature phones running J2ME and Brew.

Ingenico ROAM offers merchants and mobile professionals complete freedom of choice to develop mobile commerce applications that work on the iPhone, BlackBerry®, Google™, and hundreds of other devices. Unlike static, device-specific applications that are costly and difficult to change, Ingenico ROAM is a scalable service that can be changed quickly and easily. For example, when Google™ released the nexus one™ phone, Ingenico had a working application released within two days. The ROAMpay application can be downloaded from the iTunes® App Store or directly accessed on Ingenico ROAM website at

"Ingenico benefits our bank and ISO partners by simplifying the sales message to the merchant. There are no complicated discussions about changing phones and carriers. Our partners gain processing revenue quickly and add value to their merchants by offering a unique suite of mobile commerce applications that can run on their existing devices," continued Justice.

"We're making it easy for both banks and ISOs to enable their merchants to accept payments to gain a competitive edge."
