Eftpos ushers in new era of centralisation

Payments hub goes live

Eftpos’ new centralised payments hub has gone live. The new system replaces the existing network of bilateral links between financial institutions and merchants.

Eftpos claims a new era for the nation’s most widely used payments network has begun. The new infrastructure is said to enable the adoption of new payment products faster and more efficiently. These products include online, contactless and mobile payments.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, ING Direct, Suncorp Bank and Strategic Payments Service (SPS) are already connected to the hub. The first of the big four banks, ANZ, is expected to follow before the end of the year.

Eftpos managing director, Bruce Mansfield, said the network will boost payments efficiency and innovation.

“Just 11 months after we signed a contract with FIS to build the eftpos Hub, we are now live with a number of financial institutions and processing eftpos CHQ and SAV transactions.”

“We expect all of our members to be connected to the hub by September 2015, marking a significant achievement in industry cooperation.”

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
