PAX Technology, the world’s leading electronic payment terminal solution provider, today announced the launch of the world’s most advanced integrated multilane PED device, the Aries6 Android Smart Tablet, into key multilane retail markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Combining PCI 5 security and contactless technology with PayDroid, the payment industry’s leading Android-based operating system, the sleek-looking Aries6 is designed with a metallic, retail-hardened durable housing, and can be connected to any type of multilane till system. With power over ethernet (POE), inbuilt dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, the high-resolution 6-inch capacitive touch-screen display provides a modern graphical user experience for consumers and retailers alike.
Standard features include an inbuilt front-facing camera for barcode and QR code scanning, a ruggedized hybrid card reader for Chip & PIN and magnetic stripe card transactions (whether via traditional keypad entry or PIN-on-Glass), integrated NFC contactless acceptance, as well as Micro-SD memory expansion slots and multiple USB port connectivity.
When secured on a pole stand, the Aries6 is transformed into a fixed mount PED solution to facilitate instore cash register integration. Alternatively, an optional rotating base with inbuilt thermal printer and comms ports turns the Aries6 into an elegant standalone countertop SmartECR.
“Retailers across all market verticals are seeing a wave of transformation in the way transactions occur. The Aries6 is a ground-breaking solution to enhance the checkout experience and improve consumer engagement & throughput in the most demanding multilane retail environments”, says Andrew Wu, VP EMEA Region at PAX Technology
Mark O’Flynn, Sales Director at PAX Technology, added: “Android is the future of payment terminal acceptance and, supported by PAXSTORE, the leading one-stop ecosystem which delivers advanced estate management with real-time operational data reporting, we now provide a cutting-edge platform for the approval, publishing and distribution of an increasing array of value-added business applications”.
