Pivotal Payments Presents FlexPoint EMV Integrated POS Solution At RetailNOW 2014


Pivotal Payments, a leading provider of merchant services and global payment processing solutions, is proud to present FlexPoint, its proprietary EMV integrated solution at RetailNOW, August 3-6, 2014 in Orlando, Florida. RetailNOW is the premier convention and expo for professionals in the retail technology industry. FlexPoint combines security, simplicity and speed of integration at the point of sale and provides merchant resellers, ISVs and VARs a turnkey solution for upgrading their clients to EMV-compliant devices. It eliminates the need for recertifying under PCI Data Security Standards and its simpler configuration cuts integration time from months to just hours. Pivotal Payments will demonstrate how FlexPoint works at booth 129.

FlexPoint presents an important revenue-generating opportunity as U.S. merchants prepare for the switch from magnetic stripe to chip and PIN cards ahead of the October 2015 deadline. FlexPoint consists of hardware and an EMV-certified payment application that complies with the industry’s most stringent security standards. The solution eliminates the need for costly middleware licensing by communicating data directly with the processor.

FlexPoint Benefits:

  • Reduces integration time from months to hours
  • Eliminates PCI and EMV from the scope of implementation
  • Single point of integration with no additional middleware required
  • Future-proof technology integrates with ECRs, tablets, kiosks and more
  • Seamless software updates provided by “FlexControl” to minimize business downtime
  • Compatible with EMV and contactless payment cards (Visa PayWave, MasterCard PayPass)

“Pivotal Payments has extensive knowledge and experience with EMV, having supported chip and PIN implementations in Canada for over 5 years,” said Frank LoSchiavo, senior vice-president of Sales and Marketing, Pivotal Payments. “Our technical support and integrations specialists are primed to assist our U.S. sales partners and merchants in both understanding the importance of upgrading and providing a secure, reliable and affordable transition. The upcoming deadline is fast approaching and merchants need to start considering their options immediately.”

Partners of Pivotal Payments are well positioned to offer FlexPoint as the solution to EMV compliance and are able to better adapt to emerging payment trends. The FlexPoint solution will be presented at RetailNOW at booth 129 and include demonstrations, benefits of Pivotal’s partner programs and a primer on how to capitalize on the opportunity presented by the looming shift to EMV.
