The Global Electronic Fund Transfer Point-of-sale Systems Market (EFTPOS) is expected to grow by 8.4 % between now and 2016, according to recent findings from researchandmarkets.com. Part of this growth can be attributed to an increased usage of Europay, MasterCard and Visa. With growth, of course, comes an increased need for improved security across the board (something we take very seriously at CoCard). Heightened security measures include signature capturing devices, biometric sensors, touch screens, radio frequency identification and bar code scanners. This report also included a thorough market analysis including input from industry experts, as well as a study on the key vendors working in this market. Those vendors mentioned in the study include First Data Corp., Ingenico S.A., Pax Technology Ltd. and VeriFone Systems Inc.
