Focus POS, a provider of restaurant point of sale software, has teamed up with Mercury Payment Systems, a Vantiv company, to offer customers with an EMV solution.
The comprehensive payment processing solution features EMV and end-to-end encryption (E2E), as well as NFC and tokenization capabilities required for Apple Pay and other mobile wallets.
The solution will mainly benefit customers who utilize the VeriFone VX 805 and have upgraded to Focus POS version X.
The semi-integrated offering will not only protect customers businesses but also make it redundant for Focus POS to no longer need to handle sensitive credit card data.
Focus POS COO Mike Hamm said: "The sole purpose of this partnership is to provide restaurants and end users with a simple, reliable, and secure way to make payments at the point of sale. We don’t want our customers to ever have to worry about credit card fraud."
Vantiv senior vice president for integrated payments Matt Downssaid: "Focus POS has been a partner of Mercury’s for some time and we are excited to help them deliver a comprehensive security solution to help protect their clients while enabling new payment types."
