New and Not-So-New Mobile Players

Not surprisingly, mobile was a hot topic at the National Retail Federation’s 2013 BIG Show. Reported by Hospitality Technology in a recent article, here are some of the strong players from the mobile market:

  • Isis Mobile Wallet originally piloted in Austin and Salt Lake City, they are now expanding to more locations where consumers can pay and redeem offers via mobile phone
  • NCR Corporation and PayPal, Inc. came together to promote mobile payment
  • VeriFone Systems, Inc. showed mobile payment and cloud services
  • Benbria’s BlazeLoop is a mobile customer engagement solution that increases in-store sales by capturing and acting upon customer input
  • Epson America, Inc. introduced OmniLink, which delivers mobile printing, cloud services, and PC computing power for POS platforms
  • MokiMobility released MokiManage2013, which offers a turnkey solution for iPad kiosks
  • Revel Systems provides iPad POS with EMV compatibility and potential PCI compliance
  • Ingenico is teaming with Microsoft to deliver secure payments

We expect to see these names a lot over the next few years as the trend towards mobile (payments in particular) becomes more integrated in the hospitality industry.
