Verifone Introduces Carbon 8, the Future of Small Business Payment Systems & the Latest Innovation in the Carbon Family

LAS VEGAS ETA TRANSACT – Unveiling another beautifully-designed, integrated point of sale (POS) solution for small to midsized businesses, Verifone (NYSE: PAY), a world leader in payments and commerce solutions, announces Verifone Carbon 8, an affordable, smaller, and more portable POS solution and newest member of the Carbon family.

Designed for high-touch industries such as hospitality and restaurants, Carbon 8’s namesake showcases a high-resolution, 8-inch, merchant-facing tablet that enables a more portable and lighter device to fit a variety of fast-paced environments. Able to run applications that help merchants operate and grow such as accounting, real-time inventory management and staffing tools, Carbon 8 offers convenient new features including a shoulder strap for comfortable carrying and optional, detachable thermal printer for on-the-spot receipts.

When portability is more important and space is limited, we have Carbon 8
Glen Robson EVP, Global Head of Solutions

“When portability is more important and space is limited, we now have Carbon 8, which we see in the hands of on-the-go merchants for hotel checkout, pay-at-the-table, curbside assistance and other portable and mobile use cases.” said Glen Robson, EVP, Global Head of Solutions, Verifone. “This latest innovation comes after last year’s introduction of our award-winning category killer Carbon 10, which strikes a perfect balance for those merchants who want a large countertop display with portability when they need it.”

“Verifone is working with its partners to deliver on payment security, EMV and mobility so that their retail clients can focus on their businesses and serve their customers,” said Thad Peterson, Senior Analyst, Aite Group. “Carbon 8 is a good example of the way POS is evolving, providing merchants with a multifunctioning and integrated system that can be customized for vertical applications and is adaptable to changing consumer expectations.”

The Verifone Carbon series is powered by the Intel® high-speed chipset for fast processing to run and integrate any POS software and third party applications. Designed with dedicated merchant and consumer facing tablets for optimal business management and consumer engagement, Carbon will have access to the Verifone App Marketplace where merchants will be able to discover, purchase and install commerce apps and customize their device to personalize the customer experience.

Carbon won the 2017 iF DESIGN AWARD which was presented by Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH, Germany’s oldest independent design organization.

Experience Carbon 8 at booth #510 at TRANSACT 17 in Las Vegas, and see demos of the newest Verifone products and other next generation payment solutions, May 10-12, 2017.
