Taxi billing solutions provider TaxiCharge NZ has completed the largest mobile point of sale (POS) project in the country with the installation of the latest state-of-the-art terminals to 800 taxis in the Auckland area.
TaxiCharge is New Zealand’s only specialist taxi billing solution for companies and their managers and employees who use taxis on regular basis.
The installation included the technology and protocols to comply with international EMV (Eurocard, MasterCard and Visa) standards for credit cards which must be met by June 1 this year.
The fleets will also be fully prepared with the latest payment facilities to cope with the large influx of visitors to the country for the Rugby World Cup later in the year.
TaxiCharge chief executive Mark Lines says the technology brings multiple benefits, including greater visibility to transaction reporting and the ability to process total mobility cards.
“All POS transactions are processed in real time which provides the customers with the security of knowing that the opportunity for any fraudulent activity is greatly reduced.”
The terminals also have the potential to accept radio frequency ID (RFID) technology cards such as access and other chip cards.
The Auckland project follows 56 terminal installations in Invercargill and in 675 vehicles in Wellington. M
