Ingenico (Euronext: FR0000125346 - ING), world leader in payment solutions, announces that it has reached the historic milestone of 1 million terminals delivered in Latin America over the past 12 months. This impressive record in the region demonstrates, once again, the preference of large acquirers and banks for Ingenico’s payment terminals and contributes to the worldwide leadership.The payment terminals, which include POS and PIN Pads equipped with secure magnetic stripe and smart cards readers were delivered to major banks and acquirers in the region over the past 12 months and also contributed to increasing the security of the payment networks of our customers. The markets which showed greatest demand were Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Chile and Peru, where Ingenico has performed with excellence through its own offices, partners and distributors.
Much of this success is attributed to the introduction of the new family of countertop terminals iCT220 and iCT250 whose deliveries totaled 350,000 units. In addition, Ingenico delivered 200,000 units of the wireless terminal EFT930G, and 250,000 units of the countertop terminal EFT930S-GEM. This achievement was also made possible due to the delivery of thousands of PIN Pads iPP320, recently launched in the region, as well as signature capture terminals and the payment PDA iPA280, which together complete the most comprehensive portfolio of payment terminals of our industry.
