Ingenico and TASQ Technology expand North American relationship with warranty/service and reseller agreement for all INGENICO Terminal products



    New reseller agreement appoints TASQ as an Ingenico authorized warranty
    provider and allows TASQ to resell all Ingenico stand-alone and
    integrated terminals as well as industry leading check reader line.

    ATLANTA, April 30 /CNW/ - Ingenico, a global leader in secure payment and
 transaction solutions, announced today that it has signed a reseller
agreement with TASQ Technology, a wholly owned subsidiary of First Data Corp.
(NYSE:   FDC), to sell and provide warranty service on its entire U.S. and
Canadian product range of Ingenico. First Data recently announced the
acquisition of a Canadian operation to provide equipment sales and logistics,
warranty and repair services, key injection, point of sale (POS) supplies, and
call center services to Canadian financial institutions and ISO's.
    "We see TASQ as a significant partner in building our business in the
United States as they are the largest service provider for transaction
terminals in the country. Our solutions are being well received by U.S. TASQ
customers and we will work closely with TASQ and its Canadian affiliates to
help make their entrance into the Canadian market a success" said Geoff Bowen,
President, Ingenico North America.
    "TASQ's reputation for outstanding service was a compelling reason to get
them involved in Ingenico's warranty program. We look forward to their
expertise enhancing the overall experience of purchasing an Ingenico product
in North America via TASQ's quality repair and service culture," continued
Bowen.
    The agreement encompasses for the first time, the selling of Ingenico's
integrated terminal line, primarily targeted at Value-Added Resellers (VARs)
and tier one merchants that purchase directly. These products have become
increasingly popular with specialty merchants wishing to add sophistication to
their POS systems through the use of their VAR, and TASQ's distribution and
service expertise will add another dimension to this growing market segment.
    Other products covered under the agreement include the popular i5100,
i5310 and i7780. The Ingenico 7780 is a secure, short-range portable
transaction terminal that allows credit, PIN debit, stored value and EBT
payment to be brought to the customer. With a range of more than 1500 feet,
the i7780 is ideally suited for Pay@Table(TM) and curbside applications in
restaurants and bars, for in car service at drive-in quick lube chains, for
retail merchants looking to maintain clutter free display cases, use at
sidewalk sales, or anywhere a wireless terminal would improve customer service
or operating efficiencies.
    The i5100 and 5310 are IP-enabled countertop transaction terminals
capable of operating in either dial or IP communication modes. Operating in
IP, transaction speeds are decreased to as few as 4 seconds, thus offering the
merchant improved checkout speed and service. Capable of handling credit,
debit, and other magnetic card transactions such as loyalty, prepaid and more,
the i5100 is a versatile, robust and cost efficient way for merchants
everywhere to accept electronic payments.
