TAMPA, FL – Sterling Payment Technologies, a leading provider of secure payment processing, today announced it has partnered with ExaDigm, Inc., a leading innovator in point-of-sale (POS) terminal solutions, to offer an EMV solution for the wireless ExaDigm G3 retail and restaurant application.
The G3 works as a standalone POS system capable of Wi-Fi or 3G cellular wireless connectivity. The compact, user-friendly design offers merchants the capability to accept payments wherever they do business. Fully compliant with payment industry standards, the G3 supports contactless payments and digital wallets such as Apple Pay®. The G3 also helps manage merchants’ PCI scope by not storing cardholder data, as well as supports the newer, more secure SHA-2 security certificates.
“Sterling is proud to expand our partnership with ExaDigm to provide merchants with a secure, cost-effective and convenient EMV solution like the G3,” said Jim Raftice, President U.S. and Canada, EVO Payments International, parent company of Sterling Technologies. “G3’s ability to process secure EMV transactions in the field will greatly benefit our customers.”
Due to the liability shift by the major card brands in 2015, businesses that do not use terminals that process EMV chip card transactions are now liable for chargebacks associated with payments made with counterfeit, lost or stolen payment cards. This burden can represent significant losses to businesses that do not use EMV-enabled point of sale systems.
“Our priority at ExaDigm is to make sure our customers’ transactions are among the most secure in the marketplace,” said Tony Dabbene, president and CEO at ExaDigm. “Sterling shares this objective, and we’re pleased to be working with them to help our restaurant and retail businesses achieve full EMV and PCI compliance.”
Sterling Payment Technologies is dedicated to providing fast, affordable and secure payment processing to merchants throughout the U.S. Sterling excels at easy payment integrations that include EMV solutions, P2PE, tokenization, out-of-scope solutions, mobile solutions, and cloud-based POS reporting platforms. The company’s focus on technology and service allows Sterling to provide superior customer support and a broad range of advanced solutions to its customers.
