Excerpt — NEW YORK CITY — Ingenico Group said year-over-year shipments of its iSelf Series cashless payment systems grew more than 200%. New additions to Ingenico’s unattended partners program, launched a year ago, have accelerated sales, the company reported. Ingenico products are used by the vending, education, retail, hospitality and parking industries.

Ingenico Group said it saw its single largest deployment of unattended payment solutions in 2016. New unattended partners include Vengo Labs, which makes a wall-mounted touchscreen vending machine, along with Bank of America, Bluefin, Shift4 and Vantiv. The program’s 22 members consist of kiosk, value-added and payment solutions providers. It also serves system integrators that create the ecosystem necessary for secure unattended payments.

Ingenico’s PCI-certified iSelf Series is EMV and NFC capable. The all-in-one iUC285 contact and contactless standalone module for self-service businesses is the most popular terminal/reader in the series. Over the past two years, the company says it created more than 10,000 purchase points with its unattended terminals.

Connected Technology Solutions, Flex, Image Manufacturing Group, Kiosk Information Systems, Olea Kiosks, SlabbKiosks and Zivelo are other kiosk makers that use Ingenico’s products. Intouch, Livewire and Nanonation are among the system integrators working with Ingenico.
