Smart /Chip Cards/EMV Terminals
Help keep your business and customer’s data safe by providing next generation terminals.
All of our EMV technology for improved card/cardholder validation and authentication helping to protect you and your customers from counterfeit card fraud.
Sometimes referred to as “chip cards,” “chip and PIN “or “chip and signature,” the embedded EMV card technology improves card data security over the legacy magnetic stripe technology, which can all too easily be skimmed for counterfeit purposes. EMV (founded by Europay, MasterCard and Visa) is a global standard for payment cards using chip technology allowing you better card/cardholder authentication and validation.
BENEFITS OF EMV Technology
- More powerful card authentication to protect against counterfeit cards
- Cardholder verification to protect against lost/stolen cards with PIN entry
- Fewer fraud-related chargebacks from stolen/skimmed cards
Your customers benefit as well, with the greater peace of mind that comes with improved technology, and a seamless experience while they checkout, whether their card is inserted, or tap-and-go.

Mobile Wallets and Apple Pay™
The Latest in Payment Acceptance Technology
Did you know? All of our new EMV terminals are also NFC enabled to accept contactless payment transactions such as Apple Pay™ and Google Wallet. Not only is this the newest technology in payment acceptance, it also has an extra layer of security for cardholders and merchants with the combined use of biometrics, encryption, and tokenization.
Biometrics and tokenization technologies have been around for a number of years. What’s new is their combination in a platform that allows users to authenticate their identity while removing payment card data and replacing it with a token. A token is a dynamically generated numerical value that replaces the actual card data for each contactless payment making the information maintained by the merchant useless to hackers and unauthorized users.
Once the smart phone authenticates the user, the encrypted payment information is then passed at the point of sale to the merchant and on to the payment card networks which then decrypts the data and passes it to the issuer to further decrypt and authenticate the payment.
And it all occurs with a simple tap.
