Genius integration offers unified solution with advanced PCI compliance
Boston, MA – November 13, 2013 – Merchant Warehouse®, a leading innovator of payment technologies and merchant account services, today announced an expanded partnership with Specialized Business Solutions (SBS) with the integration of Keystroke POS, a point-of-sale (POS) solution that enables merchants to manage and control inventory through advanced reporting capabilities. Now combined with Merchant Warehouse’s Genius™ Customer Engagement Platform™, Keystroke can deliver a more deeply unified, reliable solution with stronger PCI compliance.
Keystroke, an offering from SBS, specializes in selling POS inventory control solutions for retailers to ensure shelves are continuously stocked with items their customers are shopping for. Serving customers for more than 25 years, the Keystroke POS system is an easy-to-use, affordable and full-featured retail store management system that can be easily customized to meet various retailer needs.
“We pride ourselves in delivering reliable retail solutions for our customers,” said Michael Gebb, president, SBS. “With the integration of Merchant Warehouse’s Genius solution, we can expand on this promise as a result of enhanced PCI compliance and the flexibility of a POS solution that can evolve with the market, removing the need for any expensive hardware or software updates. We’re thrilled to bring this integrated solution to our customers and look forward to the additional benefits Genius presents, as well."
Genius is a payment technology solution that enables merchants to accept any type of payment, discount or loyalty program through a single transaction from a single customer engagement device. As a PA-DSS validated solution, Genius separates all sensitive data from the POS system, ensuring the protection of transactional data through tokenization and point-to-point encryption. And unlike other software and hardware solutions, Genius is designed to evolve with the market, delivering ultimate flexibility and scalability, and offering merchants the opportunity to turn a transaction into an interaction through integrated commerce and marketing functionalities.
“For consumers to complete a seamless transaction, merchant platforms must accommodate a customer’s preferred means of payment, a strong security solution to keep any card data or personal information secure, and a stable system to ensure transactions can be processed quickly and efficiently. All of this together can dictate the ultimate experience for both merchant and customer,” said Henry Helgeson, CEO, Merchant Warehouse. “Genius integrates each of these assets into a single platform, allowing merchants to deliver a high-quality, unified experience while effectively managing transactional data.”
