Castles Technology Receives First Data Omaha EMV Certification for Code and Go

Share Article

Castles' semi-integrated and stand-alone application makes access to EMV acceptance much easier for ISOs and ISVs and their merchants.

Castles Technology International Corp., a leading payment solutions provider, announced today that its semi-integrated and stand-alone EMV application, Code and Go, received EMV credit certification on the First Data Omaha platform.

“This certification is a big win for Castles,” said Chief Executive Officer Winston Fong. “Code and Go is an opportunity for First Data ISOs and ISVs to market a fresh and innovative EMV solution to merchants, all while providing themselves with a new revenue stream.”

Code and Go is an easy to use solution that allows quick EMV integration into any business application. Thanks to the lightweight, yet powerful, Lua programming language — the same language used to develop the popular mobile game, Angry Birds — a few lines of code are all that is needed to get up and running with a secure payment solution.

Application developers can also incorporate EMV into their smartphone or PC application without prior payment experience or the expense associated with EMV and PA-DSS certifications.

Some of the value provided by Code and Go includes:

  •     Removing payment solutions from broader PCI-DSS scope
  •     Requiring no additional EMV certifications or audits
  •     Compatibility with iOS, Android or PC business applications
  •     Integration with CTIO, Castles’ asset management system

Code and Go can be deployed in a retail or restaurant environment using any of Castles’ innovative and versatile attended payment devices, including the VEGA3000 and MP200.

Castles’ suite of world-class devices empowers customers and streamlines business operations in various vertical markets by providing features like:

  •     Mag-stripe, chip card and contactless payment acceptance
  •     PCI PTS 4.x
  •     EMV Level 1 and Level 2
  •     Wi-Fi, USB, cellular (4G/LTE) and Bluetooth connectivity options
  •     Color screens with optional touch capability for signature-capture
