Dubai - MENA Herald:

 Mashreq Bank, in collaboration with Waypoint Systems FZCO, announced the launch of Poynt Smart Terminals in the United Arab Emirates. The launch marks the UAE’s leading financial institution’s inaugural introduction of smart payment terminals to merchants in the region.

The Poynt Smart Terminal offers an exciting range of features for retailers; it is equipped to accept a wide range of payment types including credit and gift cards, NFC such as  Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay and QR Code based payments such as AliPay. Most compelling for retailers is their ability to seamlessly integrate the Poynt platform into their existing store architecture, customize and publish enterprise-grade apps to the Poynt App Marketplace, utilize advanced terminal and asset management tools, and leverage Poynt’s mobile form factor to accept payments anywhere.

Pankaj Kundra, Head of Payments at Mashreq Bank, commented “We are delighted to be the first bank in the UAE to offer our clients the Poynt Smart Terminal. The terminal offers our merchants an amazing combination of features and flexibility - all the while complying with the latest PCI and EMV security standards.”

Osama Bedier, CEO of Poynt, added “We are very pleased to partner with Mashreq and Waypoint to give UAE retailers, large and small, the flexibility they need to adapt and stay ahead of payment trends. Poynt provides them with the capabilities they need for this very global audience, including mass payment acceptance, integrated loyalty, customer feedback, and analytics capabilities.”

Waypoint Systems’ CEO Dayan V Ipe echoed Mashreq and Poynt's sentiments, “This couldn’t be a better partnership; thanks to the flexibility of the Poynt platform and Mashreq’s infrastructure, we will utilize our expertise in the Enterprise Solutions space to offer a bundled suite of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) tools on the Poynt Terminal, like ERP capabilities for both small and major retailers.”
