Vivid, the integrated software and payments leader for the restaurant industry, today announced a strategic partnership with AMP (Advanced Mobile Payment) Inc., a global provider of complete payment solutions and EMV Smart devices.
Effective immediately, Vivid and AMP will deliver integrated POS solutions that run Vivid’s cloud-based, processor-agnostic POS software on AMP’s line of Android-based terminals and POS hardware.
Vivid’s scalable, flexible and highly customizable software is designed and built for today’s varied restaurant environments – from QSRs, coffee shops and bars, to FSRs and fine dining establishments – and is optimized for performance on AMP hardware, including the new AMP Bridge. The Bridge is an all-in-one countertop solution built to handle a wide range of tasks, including integration to EMV Level I and Level II payments, inventory and employee management and more, and provides the speed and processing power to work with state-of-the-art software like Vivid POS. Enclosed in a premium Midnight Aluminum casing, and running on a blazing fast Android 11 OS, the Bridge incorporates the key features of a traditional POS register into a compact tablet-based Smart solution that directly supports peripherals like cash drawers and barcode scanners.
“The combination of Vivid’s POS software and AMP hardware presents a compelling value proposition for restaurants of most any size,” commented Derek Henmi, Vivid Co-founder and CEO. “Both AMP and Vivid are challengers in the payments space, and the speed, performance, and features that we’re delivering are unmatched in the industry for value and solution completeness. As such, we’re thrilled about this new partnership.”
In addition to the AMP Bridge, Vivid POS software is supported by the complete line of AMP Smart EMV hardware devices, including AMP’s range of Android portable devices, the AMP 6500 unattended terminal, and AMP’s 27-inch Smart self-service kiosk.
“Collaborating with Vivid was an obvious choice, given the breadth and depth of their POS solution,” said Robert Downton, SVP Sales, North America of AMP. “The capabilities of their software platform are a match for retail establishments of any type and size, and by integrating AMP’s complete ecosystem of Smart devices, our combined offering makes sense to customers from a performance, value, and customer experience standpoint.”
