"This win represents another example of our NFC readers meeting the demanding needs of our global customers and partners," said Ofer Tziperman, the company's CEO.

This is in addition to the increasing number of ticket machines, parking meters, supermarket self-checkouts, Laundromats, photo kiosks, internet access terminals, bike kiosks and other locations that involve unattended cashless transactions
