Silver Spring, MD (PRWEB) October 11, 2016
Merchant Link, a leading payment gateway offering cloud-based cardholder data security solutions, announced today the completion and certification of EMV with its VAR partner, Visual Matrix.
“We sought a partner to provide leading-edge security solutions, including EMV, for our extensive U.S. client base that includes both independent hotels and over 65% of the Best Westerns in North America. When we met with Merchant Link, we could see we would have a long-term partner relationship and someone that would take our client’s needs into consideration. Merchant Link and Visual Matrix have certified the integration between TransactionLink™ and Visual Matrix,” shared David Awad, President of Image Technology Systems (Visual Matrix).
The certified integration will allow Visual Matrix to offer its customers a complete security suite for one low price, which includes EMV, tokenization and point-to-point encryption.
Visual Matrix customers will have two PIN pads to select from based on their price point requirements. The Ingenico PIN pads feature the latest technology and ease of use. The integration gives Visual Matrix customers the ability to accept chip enabled cards, and helps address charge backs related to fraudulent activity.
Certification is complete and the first beta hotel went live on October 4, 2016.

Our products and services have been well received by the industry and this relationship allows us a greater reach into different market segments.
