All the technology needed in one versatile device for all transactions: from contactless to Chip & PIN. Viva Wallet and Elo strategic partnership disrupts the European payments scene, delivering flexible payments everywhere and less hassle for businesses.
ATHENS, April 24 — The strategic partnership between Viva Wallet, a leading European cloud-based neobank, and Elo, a leading global supplier of interactive touch solutions, is pioneering a new retail payments experience. European businesses can now offer new payment experiences, accepting Chip & PIN and Tap-on-Phone contactless payments by combining Viva Wallet’s cutting-edge embedded payments platform for smart devices, with Elo M50 and M60 Pay mobile computers in an enterprise-grade mobile point of sale system. One piece of technology that integrates smart retail software and payment acceptance for each and every transaction into a powerful and robust handheld Android computer; anywhere, anytime, seamlessly, all from the palm of your hand. Viva Wallet and Elo’s strategic alliance, featuring additional omnichannel solutions, has gone live in Europe with plans to expand globally, including the US.
Integrating Viva Wallet’s technology with the both sleek and durable all-in-one handheld solutions from Elo transforms point of sale into the most sought-after, enterprise-grade tool - an advanced mobile or fixed terminal that is Level 3 certified, accepting over 30 different payment methods. In addition, the flexible and versatile device facilitates ticketing, inventory management, delivery tracking, price checking, and other retail operations tasks thanks to a powerful processor and an optional integrated barcode scanner. The optional docking station and expansion module turn the mobile solution into a fixed terminal. This strategic partnership translates into greater systems consolidation, streamlined operations, enhanced security, and a seamless customer journey, across various verticals - from retail and grocery to hospitality, entertainment, and logistics.
Viva Wallet and Elo’s joint additional omnichannel solutions enhance both the online and in-store retail experience, presenting businesses with options to both optimize operations and boost conversions. Elo’s broad, diversified hardware portfolio, backed by a decade of enterprise-focused Android development and leadership, integrated with Viva Wallet’s state-of-the-art “plug-and-play” payments technology applies to all end-customer touchpoints.
