Sherpa is a full-featured mobile device that runs on the Android platform with enough power to securely support mPOS applications and integrated payments. It supports Chip & PIN, Chip & Sign, magnetic stripe and contactless payment technologies.
Chip & PIN
Chip & Sign
Accept All Card Types
Enables merchants to accept EMV Chip & Sign, EMV Chip & PIN and magnetic stripe payments, including most digital wallets and contactless payments.
Android operating system allows developers to take advantage of a well-known operating system to facilitate rapid application development.
Secure Reading and Exchange of Data (SRED) facilitates reduced PCI scope from the earliest point in the transaction lifecycle when part of a PCI-validated P2PE solution.
Camera & Barcode Scanner
Built-in camera and optional barcode scanner bring efficiencies to POS functions including adding/tracking inventory, ringing up sales, and supporting loyalty program features.
Software and key updates can be supported via secure remote over-the-air communications, ensuring the device is always current.
Sherpa is not a one-dimensional PIN pad. It has enough memory to run a mobile storefront and features an optional barcode scanner to improve the checkout experience. The integrated camera can be used to upload product images to the POS application. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology allow Sherpa to communicate with POS systems, printers and peripherals. Support for 3G wireless allows merchants to ring up sales and support payments from anywhere.
Sherpa is the ideal solution for a variety of industry segments and payment acceptance environments. It can be used as a stand-alone, all-in one mobile POS, or as an integrated peripheral for line busting, pay-at-the table, curbside pickup and other roaming payment applications.
Robust security and proven PTS-P2PE compliant SRED technology combine to protect cardholder data, ensuring that account information is never stored in the device.
Easy-to-use APIs and SDKs facilitate quick integration of payments. For the device to always be up to date, firmware and parameter changes are accomplished OTA (Over-the-Air).
