Making their way to the stage next is the team from Hypori.
In conjunction with a Fortune 100 financial services company, Hypori has added support for remote access to Bluetooth peripherals such as barcode scanners, card readers, and receipt printers. The use case is point of sale (POS), and the goal is to improve security for credit-card transactions from mobile devices by moving the POS app off the mobile end-point to a locked-down, instrumented operating system running in a secure data center: POS as a Service. Hypori is demonstrating a mobile credit-card transaction leveraging remote Bluetooth peripherals for the first time on the Finovate stage.
