Amber Systems Technologies Adds EMV Card Processing from Moneris to Its Vigore POS Software
Restaurants and Retailers in the U.S. and Canada Can Now Process EMV Credit and Debit Card Payments Directly Through Their Vigore Software and Moneris
Pleasanton, CA—August 18, 2015— Amber Systems Technologies (AST), a leading developer of POS software for the restaurant, specialty retail, grocery and other industries, announced today it has integrated EMV chip card processing from Moneris Solutions Corporation (Moneris), one of North America’s largest payment processors and an EMV technology leader, into its popular Vigore POS restaurant management software.
The integration enables Vigore POS users to begin accepting EMV credit and debit cards well ahead of the October 2015 liability shift of some types of card fraud from card issuers to businesses that don’t accept EMV chip cards. In addition, as more and more EMV chip cards are issued and more customers start paying with them, restaurants and retailers that use Vigore POS can be ready to accept the new cards. Utilizing a single software solution to manage all aspects of operations and also process credit and debit card payments helps to streamline operations, reduce costs and improve overall efficiency.
“EMV chip cards are coming,” said Suzanne Chen, CFO, Amber Systems Technologies. “They are going to impact every retailer and restaurant—small or large, QSR, full-service or fine-dining—so adding EMV card processing to Vigore was a top priority for us. Moneris is the North American leader in EMV technology, so choosing to collaborate with them on an integrated EMV processing solution was an easy decision.”
“We’re very excited to have collaborated with Amber Systems Technology on an integrated EMV processing solution for retailers and restaurants,” said Chris Lee, President, North American Strategic Partnerships, for Moneris. “AST knows the retail and restaurant industries and Moneris knows EMV so we were a natural fit. We’re looking forward to working with AST to spread the word that EMV card processing has been added to Vigore POS.”
Vigore POS software with integrated EMV chip card processing from Moneris is available directly through AST, or through a local Vigore POS reseller.
AST will be exhibiting in Booth #1322 at the upcoming Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo, August 23-25, at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA. In addition to live demos of Vigore POS, including the new EMV card processing function, AST and Moneris will be handing out free EMV resources and offering both a $200 EMV terminal rebate and $500 credit card processing rate guarantee to show attendees. Attendees that stop by the AST booth can also register to win a Genie all-in-one POS system, valued at $999.
