500,000 terminals sold in just part of Europe makes CCV Deutschland GmbH a formidable competitor in the market for credit card terminals. The company excels at providing a wide range of credit card machines that allow retail merchants to use them either indoors or outdoors. They are also have a separate brand under which they sell devices in the medical industry.
The CCV OPP-C60 is a series of credit card terminal that is designed to work indoors or outdoors in parking garages or a retail kiosk environment. Because of this and the fact that much of the time vendors use the machine to allow customers to self-pay, the construction is very rugged. The keypad is said to be ‘completely vandal-proof’ owing to the fact that it is made from stainless steel and uses laser-etching to provide the guides for the different numbers. At the same time, it is rather impervious to the type of banging and pounding that often reduces payphone keypads to a non-operable mess in high crime areas.
As a credit card machine, the OPP-C60 offers a lot of features and options that competitors may not provide. One of the most popular options is to add a contact-free pay option that allows customers to pay as they pass by the terminal without having to use the keypad to enter anything. One of the most popular features for clients is that the terminal has a full color display that makes it easy to read at any time of day. For those that would prefer to use it in conjunction with a card reader, the OPP-C60 pairs well with the CCV Deutschland SCR-B secure card reader for encrypted transactions at the point of sale. A voice help system can also be added if desired through an optional loudspeaker. The standard connections to the backend are LAN and USB. For those customers wanting a more remote solution, ISDN and GSM options are available.
One of the largest costs of having an external pay system is that it can be vandalized from time to time. Making it difficult for vandals to destroy a machine automatically gives the OPP-C60 advantages that its competitors don’t always offer. Combining ruggedness with ease of use and a brilliant display has put the OPP-C60 over the top and into the buy column for many vendors.
