Pinnacle Honing POS Technology

Merchants can leverage the Pinnacle Palm POS with existing hardware and various back office systems to help keep pace with ever-evolving regulatory mandates and enhancements, such as the liability shift surrounding chip card transactions.

The Pinnacle Corp., a leader in mobile, loyalty and point-of-sale integration solutions for retail convenience stores, and Worldpay, a leading provider of electronic payment solutions, today announced they have jointly completed and certified the integration between the Pinnacle Palm POS and Worldpay payment processing host; the combined solution is now compliant with EMV, the global standard for credit payment cards using chip card technology.

The completion of this certification effort with Worldpay means that the fully integrated Palm POS solution will give retailers one of the highest levels of protection available against card-present data fraud by accepting chip cards, said Melissa Fox Hadley, Pinnacle’s director of product management.

Pinnacle’s Palm POS with Worldpay is currently in production with chip card-approved Ingenico PIN pads.

REDUCING LIABILITY

The certification of Pinnacle’s Palm POS with Worldpay helps to greatly reduce the liability faced by petroleum retailers when accepting chip cards for indoor transactions. Now equipped with a high level of protection against card-present chip card fraud, Pinnacle merchant partners can operate without the lingering worry of being left vulnerable to the increased fraud risk resulting from the liability shift surrounding card-present chip card transactions.

The long-standing, collaborative history between Pinnacle and Worldpay laid the foundation for the payment processor to team with Pinnacle in certifying Palm POS for chip card acceptance. Worldpay’s customer-centric focus aligns strategically with Pinnacle’s desire to address client needs related to chip card certification quickly and thoroughly.

Merchants can leverage the Pinnacle Palm POS with existing hardware and various back office systems to help keep pace with ever-evolving regulatory mandates and enhancements, such as the liability shift surrounding chip card transactions. The solution is flexible enough to deliver a tailored payment experience across various POS environments, yet strong enough to ensure that these environments are better safeguarded against increasing fraud threats while adhering to a complex nature of regulatory compliance.
