MMW learned straight from the RSPA RetailNOW conference this week that Ingenico Group, a payment solutions provider, announced that its Telium Semi-Integrated (TSI) payment solution provides an easy path for point-of-sale (POS) providers and other ISVs/VARs to start enabling EMV payments.
According to a provided statement, Ingenico Group has been working with partners for “years” on Semi-Integrated offerings, and has used that expertise to “create a flexible integration toolkit to simplify the process of developing these solutions.”
Semi-Integrated payment solutions limit communications between the PINpad and POS system to non-sensitive exchanges, preventing card data from entering the POS – instead, it is encrypted and routed directly from Ingenico Group’s smart terminal to the merchant’s card processor or gateway.
“Taking the POS out of the payment flow improves security and simplifies the EMV certification and PCI compliance processes. It can also reduce the costs of enabling EMV acceptance,” the announcement concluded.
