Blippit’s app terminal, which has been developed by Crunchfish Proximity, is displayed at the European Utility Week exhibition in Paris on November 12th-14th. The app terminal will be showed in Nordic Semiconductor’s stand. They are one of the market leaders in wireless technology and also a hardware supplier to the app terminal.
The app terminal is a new patented type of payment infrastructure that connects any app with the cash register system. The solution enables an alternative payment method to traditional card terminals and also changes payment services and coupon management in the FMCG market. Swish, with seven million users in Sweden, is the first app that will be integrated into the eco-system.
The app terminal utilises Nordic Semiconductor’s market leading Bluetooth technology, which enables contact between the mobile and the cash register via the app terminal. On November 12th-14th 2019, Nordic Semiconductor are displaying the app terminal together with the company’s current product portfolio at European Utility Week in Paris. European Utility Week is an annual exhibition where the main topics are new technology and sustainable development. Every year, over 800 companies exhibit at the fair, which is attended by over 18,000 professionals.
“Nordic Semiconductor assesses that the app terminal has the potential to change the eco-system for payments in the retail. With our market-leading Bluetooth technology, we create the best possible conditions for Blippit to commercialise the app terminal successfully and I look forward to be able to pay and redeem coupons in stores with only one blip at the app terminal,” states Thomas Holmberg Kristensen, Senior Sales Manager at Nordic Semiconductor.
“Blippit with its app terminal allows you to pay in the retail with the most popular payment apps. The first app to be integrated is Swish. After a thorough analysis work, we chose to use Nordic Semiconductor’s Bluetooth stack in the app terminal, a choice we are very pleased with,” states Paul Cronholm, CEO of Crunchfish Proximity AB.
