SALT LAKE CITY (April 29, 2014) – Moki, the leader in mobile app security and operations, today announced it has partnered with North American Bancard (NAB) to secure and manage its mobile point-of-sales solutions for in-store payment processing. NAB is delivering its new mobile payment platform, PayAnywhere Storefront, on custom-built in-store kiosks controlled by Moki’s Launcher.
PayAnywhere provides the usability and low operating costs to brick-and-mortar businesses previously available only through mobile payment apps. The result is a more intelligent, intuitive and user-friendly way to process in-store payments, while also securely minimizing hardware and processing costs.
The payment solution uses a purpose-built Android device to create a custom merchant experience. Launcher enables PayAnywhere Storefront to control which apps are available to its merchants, remotely configure the user experience, and silently update critical apps without requiring user intervention.
“We needed to create a mobile point-of-sale solution that kept costs to our customers at a minimum while creating a secure and merchant-friendly experience,” said Tracy Metzger, Chief Information Security Officer at North American Bancard. “By integrating Moki’s Launcher into our PayAnywhere Storefront solution, we were able to do just that.”
“Moki’s solutions allow forward-thinking companies like North American Bancard to use mobile technology to engage customers in more meaningful ways,” said Tom Karren, CEO and co-founder of Moki. “For anyone building a controlled kiosk solution using Android devices, Launcher delivers the best customized experience for users, while maintaining the security needed to protect critical data.”
Launcher provides secure, customized and remotely controllable desktop experiences for Android. Key features include control of app availability and app updates, configurable home screen branding and screen-savers and secure monitoring and tracking of deployed devices
