Ingenico S.A. (Euronext: ING) is a worldwide company, whose business is to provide the technology involved in secure electronic transactions. Its traditional business is based around the manufacture of point of sale payment terminals, but it now also includes complete payment solutions and related services.
In 2008, after the merging with SAGEM Sécurité, Ingenico decided to close its historical R&D centre in Barcelona. This centre has developed Ingenico's most successful family of EFTPOS (Electronic funds transfer point of sale). More than three million units sold worldwide in 2007.
In 2009, Ingenico partnered with its two largest competitors, Hypercom and VeriFone, to found the Secure POS Vendor Alliance, a non-profit organization whose goal is to increase awareness of and improve payment industry security.
Ingenico acquired German payment processor Easycash in 2009 for €290 million EUR.
In 2011, Ingenico integrated Pennies, the electronic charity box, into one of their market leading mobile Chip and PIN payment terminals, allowing retailers to 'switch on' the Pennies solution so their customers can add a micro-donation (1p-99p) to their bill when paying by card.
