Spire Payments deploys over 14,000 SPm20 mPOS devices with the leading rail transportation company in France 

Spire Payments, Europe’s leading independent POS endpoint and Fintech provider, has now deployed over 14,000 of its SPm20 mPOS devices with France’s leading rail transportation company on a project expected to deploy up to 17,500 payment solution configurations over 100 distinct sites.  Used by train conductors and railway sales agents alike to collect payments “in the station” and “in transit”, the sleek CB 5.5 compliant SPm20 connects via Bluetooth to a PDA and a mobile printer and is capable of contact and contactless payments with one of the industry’s best transaction processing times.  Recognised as the largest deployment of such mPOS technology in France and in Europe to date, and leveraging the advanced gateway technology of its partner Nepting, this ambitious project will see all new Spire Payments SPm20 installations throughout France.

TK Cheung, Spire Payments’ CEO, stated: ‘This project was complex because of the speed at which the customer wanted to deploy, the integration work that was required with 3 other partners and the challenging railway operating environment.  We are pleased to say that our products and our team checked all of the boxes.  It is a milestone project for Spire Payments that shows without any doubt how an independent POS terminal provider can compete with and exceed the capabilities of its much larger competitors by meeting all of the requirements of a high-profile project.’  Yves Mesny, Managing Director for Spire France, added ‘The positive feedback from our customers as a result of this project is just overwhelming.  Expect to see a terminal from the line of Spire Payments devices everywhere payment security, payment reliability and processing speed matters.”

The Spire SPm20 is an award-winning world-class mPOS device with advanced features such as “one-touch download” mode enabling the SPm20 to receive and process any remote updates with a single command and whose capabilities are augmented by one of the most powerful Software Development Kits (SDK) on the market, known as inSPire™. inSPire has achieved its own industry recognition as a result of its rich feature-set and ability to markedly accelerate application development thereby enabling quicker time-to-market for customers who depend on product differentiation to successfully compete.
