Nedbank will be promoting and selling its innovative mobile point-of-sale solution, Nedbank PocketPOS, at one of the largest tourism marketing events on the African calendar – Durban Indaba.
The Indaba, which runs from 11 to 14 May 2013, is a global platform that allows small and established businesses within the tourism industry to showcase their offerings as well as be exposed to innovative marketing and operational solutions aimed at strengthening the growth and success of their businesses.
The launch of Nedbank PocketPOS is in line with Nedbank’s aspiration to be a leader in digital banking, providing convenience, mobility, security and ease of access to banking – anytime, anywhere.
It equally supports Nedbank’s continued focus on partnering with SMEs for growth for a greater South Africa by providing seamless banking experiences for all the needs of business owners, including their business, employees and household.
As a bank that focusses on partnering with businesses for growth for a greater South Africa, Nedbank launched Nedbank PocketPOS, the latest addition in its Banking and Beyond innovative solutions, earlier this year.
Nedbank PocketPOS is the first live EMV‑certified mobile point-of-sale (POS) solution in South Africa that enables businesses to process debit and credit card transactions by using a smartphone or tablet connected to a secure card reader.
“Nedbank PocketPOS is an exciting addition to our existing suite of business products, and includes a new pricing structure aimed to enable small businesses to grow their business. We are delighted to showcase and make available our innovative Nedbank PocketPOS payment solution at the Indaba.
“This is in fact our fourth showcase since we launched Nedbank PocketPOS to market, followed by a phased pilot project with nine small businesses which we rolled out from 8 February.
“We’ve received amazing feedback from the pilot project with some of the businesses highlighting the convenience, ease of use, affordability and mobility, enabling them to spend more time focussing on growing their business,” explains Pamela White, head of Nedbank Corporate Card Services.
Exhibitors and show visitors will be given an opportunity to experience Nedbank PocketPOS at the Nedbank and Visa stands, where the product features and benefits will be demonstrated. Nedbank PocketPOS will also be available for purchase throughout the duration of the Indaba.
