Soft POS – CTC advanced provides testing and consulting services for the new generation of smartphone based acceptance terminals

Smartphone based acceptance terminals (so-called Soft POS terminal) are now coming on the market. With CTC advanced’s test lab, offering consultancy on how to test and certify this new type of acceptance device, vendors will be in time on the market and compliant to payment scheme requirements.

CTC advanced’s test lab provides a 360° view on your Soft POS product and offers a clear strategy to prepare the software based acceptance device to be compliant to any payment scheme requirement. Soft POS is used to redesign the use of a COTS (consumer off-the-shell) smartphone into a fully compliant acceptance terminal. The contactless only devices are seen as an alternative to mPOS or traditional terminal.

Soft POS is mobile-centric and based on NFC-technology. It is an alternative for micro merchants and to be used in specific business cases. The so-called “Tap-on-Phone” or “Tap-to-Phone” POS solution is supported by the major payment schemes.
CTC advanced’s Soft POS consultancy is useful for any vendor as part of quality assurance and preparation of the testing and certification of the device.
