At IFA this year, Samsung has announced the launch of the SoftPOS solution based on their partnership with First Data, PayCore and Visa. Requiring no additional hardware, this mobile device solution easily and securely transforms Samsung mobile handsets into Europay/MasterCard/Visa (EMV)-based contactless payment terminals and is set to lead a mobile retail revolution. Supported by Samsung Knox, Samsung’s SoftPOS supports all global payment schemes and is compatible with all Sams­­­­ung mobile devices1 and existing mobile EMV payment options.

But this SoftPOS solution is not the only leading B2B solution being showcased at IFA. Samsung Newsroom invites you to take a closer look at the full range of Samsung’s latest mobile B2B solutions. 

Solutions and Devices Designed to Meet Enterprise Needs

At IFA, Samsung is showcasing a product portfolio replete with the latest in durable products and solutions designed for the full gamut of working conditions and situations.

This portfolio is helmed by three devices custom-built for rugged lifestyles; the Galaxy Tab Active Pro, Galaxy XCover 4s and the Galaxy XCover FieldPro. These sturdy devices are appropriate not only for harsher working conditions, but also fit for the modern needs of a wide range of industries, from public service and automobile to retail and conference.

This 10-inch tablet is unique in its suitability for business as well as rugged work conditions, and delivers an immersive viewing experience thanks to its larger display fitted with a variety of solutions that enable users to engage more efficiently when undertaking business. The Galaxy Tab Active Pro also supports Samsung DeX, meaning that workers in the field can now access a PC-like experience on-site or at the office.

The compact, rugged Galaxy XCover 4s boasts both durability and portability with its 5.0-inch screen, 16-megapixel front camera, IP68 water and dust rating, and removable battery. Samsung has also developed a solution to help ensure the safety of workers from the public service industry to the logistics industry – the Galaxy XCover FieldPro. The Galaxy XCover FieldPro provides water and dust resistance (IP68) and also complies with the United States Military Standard MIL-STD 810G. The Galaxy XCover FieldPro is also fitted with a Push-To-All button and an Emergency button to allow the option of Push-to-talk (PTT) communication featuring interwork with third-party PTT solution partners. The resulting solution is a PTT mobile application that offers a range of communication options, including Lone Worker Protection and GPS Localization.

In order to best meet the diverse needs of all B2B customers, Samsung has collaborated with a variety of partners to create leading device convergence solutions, a range of which are on display at IFA 2019:

  • Integrated Tablet Case and Cradle Workstation: This market-first solution was designed to improve tablet users’ productivity as well as providing rugged protection while on the go.
