IKEA, a large residential retail company, has chosen the YOMANI terminal from Atos Worldline. IKEA is the first retailer in the Netherlands to deploy this new payment terminal, with the help of Wincor-Nixdorf. The YOMANI terminal was chosen following an intensive product and vendor selection.
The YOMANI is the new desktop terminal from Atos Worldline that focuses on the corporate market and aims to increase security with an integrated pin-shielding design. The terminal’s new features include a large colour display, USB port and integrated near field communication (NFC) reader.
“The partnership with Wincor Nixdorf and Atos Worldline fits into our strategy and vision to make life for a broad public more enjoyable with a beautiful and affordable range. Control of costs and availability is essential to realise our promise in the future,” said an IKEA spokesperson.
