Helzberg Diamonds, a US-based jewellery retailer, has deployed NCR Connected Payments to boost payments security and mitigates payment card theft and fraud risks for its customers.
The cloud-based payment solution enhances data protection, facilitates payment management across all Helzberg’s locations and manages its daily operations related to bank card payments across its network of stores.
Additionally, NCR Connected Payments offers data and transmission protection, from PIN pad to payment processor, thereby helps to reduce Helzberg’s exposure to potential payment data theft and fraud.
The flexibility of the new cloud solution also makes it easy to meet the changing payments regulations and implement changes across all locations from a single centre without having to apply complex and costly changes to POS and payment infrastructure.
NCR Connected Payments is Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) 3.0 which has also been certified by Europay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV). The platform features point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenisation, and offers advanced security monitoring and vulnerability management to provide retailers constant visibility into the health of their complete payment system.
Helzberg Diamonds CIO Jeff Rohr said: “We were looking for an electronic payment solution that allowed us to insulate sensitive card data from our enterprise systems, and provided a level of flexibility to implement changes quickly and easily. NCR Connected Payments met those requirements and now the complexity of payments is handled by NCR.”
NCR vice president and general manager of payments-security and cloud services Steven Arthur said: “We are pleased to have been selected by Helzberg Diamonds, a leader in the retail jewellery industry, for implementation of NCR Connected Payments.
“This implementation helps provide our valued client access to the latest payment options to enhance the shopper experience, while significantly reducing liability and exposure to fraud.”
