MagTek, the world’s leading supplier of secure payment technology, announces QwickDip technology in its DynaPro, a PIN encrypting device (PED), and eDynamo, a mobile and countertop secure card reader authenticator (SCRA), leveraging the global card brands’ collective advancements for faster EMV transactions.

“The development and firmware updates were well worth the benefits of the QwickDip technology,” said Roger Applewhite, Senior Vice President at MagTek. “We are able to provide our customers with faster transactions at the point of interaction and easier development efforts for accepting EMV transactions.”

QwickDip technology is very important in the mobile card reading industry since it makes for faster transactions resulting in less battery use and improved customer interactions. QwickDip technology also reduces the complexity of partner integrations due to the ease of interacting with the reader.

QwickDip was developed to support Quick Chip, M/Chip Fast, AMEX Quick Chip and Discover Quick Chip. It leverages a simplified transaction process, making it twice as fast as standard chip card transactions, but still delivers all of the security. Standard chip card transactions require part one to send the data to the bank and then part two to send the data back from the bank to the reader. With these modifications made to the card reading device, there is no need to wait for the return message from the bank, cutting the transaction time in half while making EMV transactions safe and more convenient for merchants and consumers.
