In an effort to empower automotive dealerships and other specialty merchants in the U.S. to streamline payment acceptance and increase profitability, CenPOS has collaborated with Ingenico to integrate a multi-lane device to its secure cloud-based payment platform.
CenPOS is a merchant-centric, end-to-end payments engine. The secure, cloud-based solution optimizes acceptance for all payment types across multiple channels without disrupting the merchant's banking relationships.
With CenPOS successfully certifying and integrating Ingenico's iSC250 multi-lane device to its secure cloud-based payment platform, customers will be able to experience dealerships payment optimization with a reduced payment processing cost.
The Ingenico iSC Touch 250 is a secure PCI (News - Alert) PTS V3.0 certified payment solution featuring signature capture and touchscreen technologies. It is an interactive payment device ideal for multilane retail checkout, sales kiosks and self-service environments.
According to CenPOS, its intelligent payment platform drives the customer-facing Ingenico Telium devices to promote customer engagement by capturing debit PIN entry and securing electronic signatures that are stored on the merchant's behalf.
With the integration of Ingenico iSC Touch 250 into CenPOS payment platform, a customer-centric, secure and scalable payment processing solution is created, which can be effectively leveraged by CenPOS' network of over 1,200 automotive dealerships nationwide.
Precisely, the combined solution provides customers with a positive experience at checkout by offering the convenience to pay with any form of payment, including EMV chip card, contactless, and NFC-enabled mobile devices.
Furthermore, CenPOS also integrated the iSC250 devices to support their end-to-end encryption (E2E) security solution. This enables automotive dealerships reduce the cost and complexity involved in being PCI compliant.
Christopher Justice, CEO of CenPOS, said in a statement, "Our partnership with Ingenico is a perfect example of how secure and innovative POS technology can drive customer conversations and bring financial benefits to merchants in any vertical. Delivering the ability to steer the customer conversation towards the least costly payment methods while having the capability to capture and complete PIN Debit and signature-capture transactions, helps businesses save time and money, while improving their customer satisfaction."
Justice added, "For auto dealerships, and specialty merchants in particular, that traditionally store paper receipts and have limited debit acceptance capability, pairing CenPOS with the iSC250 multi-lane device is a significant boost in operational efficiency and customer engagement."
According to sources, CenPOS has already launched iSC250 devices successfully across multiple auto dealerships in the U.S. In the coming months, CenPOS plans to add many more dealerships.
