Leader in merchant services leveraging VeriFone hardware to support Genius platform

Boston, MA – June 26, 2012 – Merchant Warehouse®, a leader and innovator in payment solutions, announced a partnership with VeriFone Systems, Inc. as a preferred hardware provider for the Genius™ platform. Earlier this month, Merchant Warehouse ushered in the future of customer engagement with the launch of Genius, the first acceptance solution with the ability to aggregate and integrate every conceivable transaction technology, payment type and customer engagement program.

Genius seamlessly incorporates all payment and customer engagement alternatives through a merchant configurable Customer Engagement Device (CED) that displays the payment and program options and accepts NFC, EMV, QR codes as well as loyalty, gift, and rewards programs. Genius software will be pre-loaded onto VeriFone’s new MX 915 device, which features a clear 4.3” display and accepts EMV, NFC and PIN payments.

“A key feature of the Genius platform is the Customer Engagement Device, which is a customer facing countertop device that provides complete flexibility and customization for the merchant,” said Henry Helgeson, co-CEO, Merchant Warehouse. “VeriFone was an obvious choice due to its leadership position in the mobile payments industry.”
