Shift4 and SilverWare POS Announce Joint EMV Solution for Hospitality Industry

EMV Solution Is Available Today With Eight Processors in the U.S. and Canada

LAS VEGAS and MARKHAM, ONTARIO — Nov. 29, 2016 — (PRWeb) — Payment gateway provider Shift4 Corporation and SilverWare POS, a leading developer of end-to-end solutions for the hospitality industry, today announced the general availability of their joint EMV-certified solution.

With Shift4’s DOLLARS ON THE NET and SilverWare’s Avrio POS, table and quick-service restaurants, bars, private clubs, assisted living communities, corporate/institutional cafeterias, hotels, stadiums, casinos and more can simplify and secure their payment processing and improve their business operations and profitability.

The solution includes:

  • Layered payment security: EMV helps prevent the fraudulent use of stolen card data in card-present environments. With this joint solution, merchants can process EMV payments while adding the layered security of point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization. This keeps sensitive cardholder data out of the merchant’s payment processing environment, greatly reducing their breach profile and PCI scope — and protecting their guests’ payment data from hackers.
  • Thirteen supported devices: Shift4 currently supports a variety of EMV-capable terminals by Ingenico Group and Verifone, with options for USB, serial, Ethernet, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. This allows complex hospitality environments to easily implement EMV with the least amount of impact on their business operations.
  • Bank and processor neutrality: Shift4 is currently certified for EMV with eight major processors in the U.S. and Canada — with more on the way — delivering unparalleled coverage of acquirers in North America and the Caribbean. This makes it easy for merchants to adopt EMV without changing their financial relationships and gives them the freedom to negotiate the best payment processing rates or make a switch if needed.

Lucky Thalas, executive vice president, SilverWare POS, said:
“SilverWare POS has always sought to push the limits of technology to give our hospitality clients feature-rich solutions for their business. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Shift4 because their passion for innovation matches our own.

Dave Oder, CEO, Shift4, said:
“Many merchants have struggled to implement EMV without upsetting their infrastructure and business practices. Shift4 is proud to partner with SilverWare POS to offer a joint solution that gives hospitality professionals an answer to those challenges. The flexibility and EMV implementation options made available through our neutral, comprehensive payment gateway are second to none.”
