New mobile payment platform to be tested in Verizon Wireless cafeteria

Verizon's foodservice contractor, Aramark, will test system in Basking Ridge, N.J., facility

An Aramark cafeteria located in Verizon Wireless’ headquarters in Basking Ridge, N.J., is scheduled to be the test site for the Isis mobile payment platform. The platform represents a partnership between AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and T-Mobile. Developers say they hope it will be the most prominent platform in the burgeoning mobile commerce industry.

Micros, a developer of point of sale software and Isis partner, has installed several NFC terminals at the Aramark cafeteria in preparation for the Isis trial. Customers with an NFC-enabled mobile device will be able to make use of the Isis mobile wallet application and make payments for meals at the cafeteria.
