The new investment in Mobiswipe provides us a stronger platform to broaden our set of business solutions and services."

He added: "This comes at a timely moment when we see an increasing number of consumers using mobile technology for payments and who have higher expectations from retailers to provide them with superior solutions that will increase their convenience while shopping. The new solution will help us provide our merchants with a wholesome mPOS ecosystem that is a combination of mobility, payment and business processing across all sales channels."
