PaymentsJournal.com, managed by the Mercator Advisory Group, today launched a new strategy session with a focus on the point-of-sale environment. VeriFone, will bring its thought leadership and expertise to help the card networks, independent sales agents, merchants and technology enablers better understand an area of payments which is undergoing tremendous change thanks to EMV and mobile payments.

"Retailers of all sizes are eager to take advantage of new payment opportunities to improve security and consumer experience at the point of sale, but fearful of making the wrong move," said VeriFone’s Vice President of Product Marketing, Erik Vlugt. "We view this strategy session as an opportunity to simplify the decision process, drawing on our experience across all market segments and our leadership role in areas such as EMV deployment and mobile payment solutions."

"VeriFone is one of the leaders when it comes to point of sale and this new strategy session will help educate the industry on the changes happening at small and large retailers throughout the United States," said Will Hernandez, content manager for PaymentsJournal.
