VeriFone, a division of Hewlett-Packard, has SME and large-chain retailers in its sights with the release of its new terminal support software, VeriTalk Lite.
The POS management software is reported to enable administrators to deploy and manage up to 5000 terminals from a single workstation and carry out up to 16 simultaneous downloads within the one implementation.
VeriFone's Asia-Pacific marketing manager, Stanley Lee, claims the software addresses the "hidden running costs" of managing POS terminals.
"It's a turnkey solution which is particularly useful for computer retail merchants."
VeriTalk Lite includes a real-time download monitoring capability to trace data flow during a download, a storage and management database, a report template to quickly generate standard reports from downloaded terminal information, and an easy-to-use graphics interface, according to a statement released by VeriFone.
