IKhokha Launches iK Flyer, a Smart Card Machine for Small Businesses

Digital payment solutions created by iKhokha make it simpler for small businesses to launch and grow. They have introduced numerous payment options across the internet and offline company scene in just the past year. iKhokha has just introduced a smart card machine to their range of payment solutions – the iK Flyer.

Product Manager Olivier D’Huart discussed the market impact that the smart card reader makes, pointing out that the iK Flyer is more than just a top-notch card reader. He mentioned that business owners would have access to more services thanks to its smart screen interface, including live access to customized finance options.

Jani Rostoll, Product Owner at iKhokha, explains the process of creating the iK Flyer after identifying the need for quicker, more dependable transactions in the small company sector.

“We started with a proof of concept with this new Android-based hardware and set out to work on the most important features: speed and reliability. We then ran a trial on the product with trusted merchants who we know would give us good feedback in terms of the transaction and connectivity reliability,” says Rostoll.

Ramsay Daly, co-founder and chief product officer of iKhokha, is excited to watch how this innovative technology affects South African SMEs. Business owners will have all the tools necessary to flourish in the South African business environment thanks to the iK Flyer, which combines the greatest features of iKhokha’s software solutions into one high-quality card machine, according to Daly.

The iK Flyer is being offered for a competitive R1999 launch price, which includes the charging base.

Here are five reasons why the iK Flyer is a worthwhile investment for business owners

  • Free Automatic Software Updates

The iK Flyer comes preloaded with the iKhokha app and upgrades automatically as new updates become available.

While the launch version includes a stock version of the app, the device will soon have iKhokha’s exclusive business tools like iK Cash Advance, iK Vend and iK Pay Link.

  • Better Connection & Faster Speed

The WiFi-enabled iK Flyer also has two built-in 4G SIM cards with unlimited data. This gives the business owner the power to switch between WiFi and two additional network providers to find the strongest network.

  • High-Speed Printer for Faster Sales

The iK Flyer includes a built-in thermal printer that prints physical receipts at high speeds. You can also skip printing and email a digital copy to the customer.

  • Long-Lasting Removeable Battery

Unlike card machines with built-in batteries, the iK Flyer comes with a high-capacity battery that’s easy to remove and replace. This eliminates the need to reinvestment in a new device over time.

The iK Flyer is the only card machine in the mPOS (mobile point of sale) space to include a charging base that keeps it charged up and secure when not in use.

  • Business Management Tools

The smart device also includes a business management suite, making it easier for business owners to run their day-to-day. The device enables staff-switching and an admin overview of staff performance, business inventory and sales.
