CHARLOTTE, NC – May 19, 2016 - Emporos Systems is proud to announce that it has successfully completed certification with Vantiv Integrated Payments to provide a fully integrated EMV payment processing solution.
Emporos Systems Corporation achieved EMV certification by integrating an EMV approved payment middleware solution, called Vantiv triPOS by Vantiv Integrated Payments, into its MerchantSoft Point of Sale solution. Vantiv certified Emporos Systems’ integration in the first quarter of this year following the completion of the triPOS integration. triPOS is one of a handful of payment middleware solutions certified with select EMV devices for use in North America.
The MerchantSoft solution running triPOS is now operating in 11 outpatient pharmacies at a major hospital in Denver, CO. The hospital is using the VeriFone VX805 EMV card reader at the point of sales to fully accept EMV or “chip” card payments.
In addition to EMV support which helps to eliminate card fraud, the triPOS integration also includes point-to-point encryption (P2PE) to help ensure that card data is transmitted safely from the device to the payment processing system, and tokenization to store card information safely for future use. The devices also have the capability to accept payments through NFC technology from smart mobile device apps, such as Apple Pay. The entire solution works seamlessly with MerchantSoft POS solution.
The triPOS integration for MerchantSoft includes:
• The ability to process in-store transactions via: EMV Chip, swiped, and manually-keyed
• Real time processing for sales and returns
• Support of Flexible Spending Account cards
• Acceptance of mobile payments types, such as Apple Pay
“Emporos has been working diligently for the past year to provide an EMV-certified solution that can also accommodate auto-substantiated FSA and HSA benefit transactions. The effort has proven to be much more difficult than we ever imagined,” said Frank Piet, President of Emporos Systems. “The inability to deliver the solution using existing partners made it necessary for Emporos to look in a different direction. We were fortunate to have found an excellent partner in Vantiv.”
“Our customers should expect this certification to be the first of several to be completed this year, in an effort to deliver solutions that meet the requirements of each individual hospital, whether they have different acquiring banks or back-end processors,” Piet also notes.
“We are excited to be partnered with Emporos as they see payments security as a critical piece of their offering. Our combination of encryption services and EMV will help protect the Emporos software users and their cardholders,” said Matt Downs, head of business and channel development, Vantiv Integrated Payment.
