Auchan Russia selects Ingenico POS
The first hypermarket to accept Visa cards is Auchan Sokolniki in Moscow, with 138 lanes equipped with Ingenico’s iSC250 POS terminal. At the end of December 2011, already 1,700 Ingenico terminals were deployed throughout the country in 22 hypermarkets. By the end of 2012, Visa cards should be accepted in all Auchan hypermarkets in Russia. The deployment of the Ingenico terminals will thus continue.
Auchan has selected Ingenico’s iSC250 equipped with Signature Capture technology. These new Ingenico payment terminals provide an enhanced in-store experience for customers, allowing them to speed through lanes and significantly reducing the time of payment. They integrate self-service functions that will enable customers to initiate the transaction independently.
The iSC250 provides proven high performance signature capture for multi-lane retail environments, boasting a large screen area and easy-access stylus. It eliminates the need to print receipts, which are sent with the signature samples directly to the host server. For low value transactions, the software applies Visa fast payment transactions, or Visa Easy Payments Service, which enables payment without requesting the customer's signature.
