Mswipe Solution

M2M Case Study Mswipe 

Enabling smaller retailers to accept card payments, and reducing the cost of doing business.

  • Business Need

    Manish Patel, CEO of Mswipe, ran into a common problem faced by merchants: he was unable to take card payments at customers’ premises. His response was to devise a solution capable of taking card payments via a smartphone. Patel created a company called Mswipe to develop the hardware and software and to market the solution. To work effectively it needed a network partner delivering connectivity nationwide.       

  • The Solution

    The Mswipe solution centres on a piece of hardware called the Wisepad, linked to a smartphone via Bluetooth. Users download the Mswipe application on their smartphones and then cards are swiped at the point of purchase and payment details sent via a Vodafone M2M SIM.          

    Vodafone's Wireline Services backed by robust network infrastructure capabilities will help you connect offices across boundaries seamlessly.
