Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 12, 2011
TGate Payments today announced that its PathwayLINKsm universal payments platform will support the new business alliance between Casio America, Inc. and PAX Technology, Inc. This strategic alliance pairs Casio's popular QT-6100 and QT-6600 flash ROM touch terminals and the mid-range electronic cash register machines, TE-2200 and TE-2400, with the PAX Secure SP30 PIN Pad.
Coupled with Casio's electronic cash registers and POS systems, PAX's SP30 PIN Pad offers a magnetic card reader, an IP port for high-speed processing and a dial backup port to eliminate any internet connection problems. The SP30 PIN also features a large 128x64 pixel LCD with four lines of display and three function keys to facilitate user-friendly payment options.
The resulting solution offers an entirely new alternative in the POS marketplace by eliminating server fees and the cost of purchasing separate PIN Pads to handle debit transactions while adding the additional security and ability to seamlessly change processors through TGate’s PathwayLINK platform. TGate also offers merchants a new level of functionality for processing tip adjustments through multiple terminals with a single batch settlement as well as real-time authorization, auditing, reporting, recurring billing module, tokenization, and signature/ check image vaulting functions.
“This alliance continues to extend TGate’s role as the ‘provider of the power behind your payments’ in the industry,” says Tracy Metzger, TGate’s President. “Our suite of value-added payment and security solutions provides an entirely new range of options for developers, resellers, and merchants alike.”
"As a leading point-of-sale system supplier, Casio is committed to improving the interface with debit, credit and gift cards," said Larry Sampey, general manager of Casio's System Products Division. "With PAX and TGate, Casio's electronic cash registers offer seamless transactions, as well as enhanced processing speed and a lower cost of ownership by eliminating rental fees, unnecessary hardware and add-ons."
"Simplifying payment solutions is extremely important to dealers and merchants today. PAX is excited to work with Casio on integrating our SP30 PIN Pad to Casio's electronic cash register systems to provide a truly cost-effective solution for credit, debit and card swipe options," said Andy Chau, President and CEO of PAX Technology, Inc. "PAX provides a simple to integrate yet secure EDC payment which takes care of the End-to-End encryption thus taking the POS/ECR out of the scope for PCI. The combination of the PAX SP30, Casio's electronic cash registers and the advanced security and flexibility of TGate’s payments platform provides the industry with the low cost, complete and secure payment system it needs and demands."
