SPG SpiderCell Spins A Wireless Web for High-Speed EFT

Share Article

SPG SpiderCell is a PCI Compliant solution that eliminates the need for DSL, cable and satellite for POS and other EFT transactions.

“SpiderCell was just what Gulf needed when we ran into situations where a site couldn’t get DSL or cable and didn't want to shoulder the high cost of satellite!" Marg Mc Donnell, Director of Credit Card Operations, Gulf Oil, Framingham, MA

SPG, the Secure Payment Gateway division of EchoSat Communications Group, formally launches their SpiderCell network technology at the 2010 NACS convention in Atlanta, GA.

SPG’s cutting-edge SpiderCell network uses the latest cellular technology to deliver fast POS and other EFT transactions at blazing cellular speeds with no DSL, cable or satellite Internet required.

C. L. “Spencer” Rutherford, president of EchoSat, states “SPG SpiderCell is a complete wireless EFT transaction transport solution, fully PCI compliant, that is ‘plug and play’ and ready to install very quickly. No longer does a remotely located convenience store have to bear the heavy capital expense of satellite equipment, with large monthly recurring fees, just to be competitive with fast transactions for their customers. For sites that have DSL or cable, SPG SpiderCell can be utilized for backup in the event of a DSL or cable outage. SpiderCell backup is completely transparent and totally automatic with no human intervention required. I invite every convenience store operator that is interested in a fast, low cost EFT communication solution to visit us in booth #2031 at the NACS Show in Atlanta.”

Duncan Oil in Beaver Creek, Ohio, a multi-branded petroleum marketer, was one of the first convenience store groups to use SPG’s SpiderCell network. Don Gose, Vice President, says, “It’s as close to flawless as you can get! No longer do we have to worry about a disruption or slowdown of our credit card transactions. Unlike satellite, as a primary route SpiderCell requires very little capital outlay and yields extremely fast transactions. In our stores where DSL or cable is used and there is an outage, the failover to a different transaction route on SpiderCell is not even recognizable. It’s totally automatic!”

Gulf Oil in Framingham, MA was also an early adopter of SPG’s SpiderCell technology. Marg Mc Donnell, Director of Credit Card Operations, says “SpiderCell was just what Gulf needed when we ran into situations where a site couldn’t get DSL or cable and didn’t want to shoulder the high cost of satellite. SpiderCell has been plug and play, fast and reliable!”
