Handheld, Wireless Solution Allows Restaurants to Enhance Service

First Data has unveiled Clover Mobile, a powerful new mobile point-of-sale (POS) business solution that brings new flexibility and versatility to the Clover family. Clover Mobile enables more personal consumer engagement for innovative small- to mid-sized businesses by taking the functionality of the popular Clover Station off the counter and on to the floor.
Armed with Clover Mobile, merchants can place orders, take secure payments, scan inventory, clock in employees, sync sales data with their accounting packages and generate marketing insights that can lead to stronger, enduring customer relationships, all with a portable, tablet-sized device. This means restaurants can accept payment at the table; retailers can use it for line-busting at busy times; brick and mortar stores can use it as a full-featured payment and business solution; and on-the-go merchants can use the device for their mobile needs.
Clover Mobile can be paired with Clover Station or work as a standalone solution offering full register capabilities with access to menu and the Clover App Market where First Data’s Insightics™ solution, Perka™ loyalty and Gyft® prepaid solutions and many of the most innovative apps in the restaurant and retail industries today to further enhance the small business experience.
Clover Mobile processes standard card swipes and features a ‘dip’ to support chip and pin EMV™ transactions. The device’s NFC capabilities allow Clover Mobile to accept contactless payment including the new Apple Pay™, and its barcode reader allows merchants to quickly scan goods for inventory purposes or for checkout. Clover Mobile also features a mobile printer that can be mounted on a merchant’s belt to provide customers paper receipts remotely upon request without returning to the register. 
Since its launch just seven months ago, First Data’s Clover Station, which transforms the POS into a dynamic business management system, has become one of the fastest selling POS system in U.S. history with more than 26,000 units distributed to date. Building on the momentum of Clover Station’s success, First Data has developed Clover Mobile allowing merchants to connect with their customers with greater ease and efficiency. It is built on the Clover Android-based operating system, which gives merchants access to Clover’s unique App Market, allowing them to customize Clover to their specific business needs.
Clover Mobile is currently piloting and will be available to merchants worldwide in 2015.
