On Track Innovations Ltd. (OTI) (NASDAQ:OTIV), a global provider of near field communication (NFC) and cashless payment solutions, announced today it has received the second batch purchase order of 2,000 cashless payment systems from Japan. The systems include the Company's new UNO Plus EMV and FeliCa contactless reader and the GoBox Multi-Service Telemetry Gateway. The initial 3,000 system delivery that was announced earlier this year has been successfully installed and activated according to schedule by Billing Systems, OTI's exclusive distributer in Japan.
"OTI's systems have seamlessly integrated into the Japanese market. We are very satisfied with their continuing reliability and superior product delivery," says Mr. Toshihiko Eda, President & CEO of Billing Systems. "With OTI we look forward to a continually bright future within the Japanese cashless payment market."
This recent order of 2,000 and the initial order of 3,000 are both part of a previously announced Letter of Intent and three-year purchase order for an impending 10,000 secure cashless payment solutions systems in Japan.
"The Japanese market, which has an estimated 6 million electronic vending machines, is rapidly adopting our systems," said Shlomi Cohen, OTI's CEO. "While the Japanese market can be conservative in adapting to new technology, we believe this latest purchase order reflects this market's confidence in the reliability of our technologies, as well as our ability to deliver in accordance with strict deadlines. This early success points to OTI's potential for further traction in this key global market."
