Ziosk intros enhanced payments-enabled tablet for restaurants

Ziosk, which bills itself as the maker of the world's first tablet for restaurant ordering, entertainment and pay-at-the table functions, has launched a next-generation tablet called Ziosk Aurizon.

Designed to meet current and evolving requirements in payment technology, the Ziosk Aurizon tablet features a first-of-its kind, all-in-one payment slot for both chip and magnetic-stripe cards, according to a press release.

The device allows guests to use Google Android Pay, Apple Pay and Samsung Pay at the table, and provides restaurants heightened payment security by offering EMV and point-to-point encryption. The new tablet also features a secure, touch screen PIN pad to support chip-and-PIN payment required outside the U.S.

"From EMV to mobile wallet to chip-and-PIN technology, the restaurant industry is undergoing significant change with regard to payment," Austen Mulinder, CEO of Ziosk, said in a statement. "The Ziosk Aurizon tablet offers restaurant operators a unique, turnkey solution that addresses these shifts, while delivering an improved, secure and easy to use experience for guests."
