CHARGE Anywhere POS technology wins innovation award

As society grows more mobile, we’re going to see mobile money transactions become increasingly adopted. In countries such as Korea and Japan, mobile payments are commonplace. CHARGE Anywhere provides Point-of-Sale technology that allows merchants to capture payments and signatures directly to their BlackBerry.

CHARGE Anywhere was awarded the 2009 ETA Technology Innovation Award at this year’s Annual Meeting & Expo in Las Vegas, NV. CHARGE Anywhere’s Mobile Payment Solution with Signature Capture was chosen as the most innovative solution of the year.

The CHARGE Anywhere mobile payment solution allows merchants to accept payments anywhere by using their BlackBerry devices. With the addition of signature capture, the need for a merchant to produce, carry, and store paper receipts is eliminated. Electronic signature capture simplifies dispute resolution, optimizes operational efficiencies, promotes green practices and generally reduces costs.

Since the BlackBerry is such an incredibly secure device, I believe it will be a leader in spreading these payment solutions.
