EMV Payments for Golf Courses – foreUp

New Fully Integrated Golf Solutions Suite Addresses Every Aspect of Golf Payments and Management
Scottsdale, AZ and Lindon, UT, February 28, 2017 — Apriva, a leading provider of omnichannel payment solutions and secure mobile communications, announced that they are partnering with foreUP, a provider of innovative golf management and marketing systems, to deliver all-in-one EMV-ready payment solutions for the entire golf course. This top-of-the-line solution dramatically simplifies golf course management and payments by combining all aspects of payments into one convenient, unified solution spanning the entire operation, from tee times, to purchases in the pro shop, to restaurant purchase, membership fees, mobile beverage carts, vending, and more.
Apriva’s EMV-enabled Gateway brings state of the art security with end-to-end encryption, tokenization and EMV capabilities to foreUP’s solutions, while connecting a variety of payment devices to Apriva’s vast processor connections. As a result of the integration, golf courses can quickly and easily enable acceptance of all major debit and credit cards, in addition to NFC and contactless payments, throughout the facility and on mobile devices, ensuring patrons can more easily and conveniently purchase products and services.
“We wanted a partner that would help us not only upgrade our payments system, but allow us to integrate new payments technologies as they arise,” said Joel Ragar, founder and CEO at foreUP. “Apriva allows us to do just that, as well as provide a solution that streamlines payments and offers a wide variety of options for both golf venues and their customers.”
foreUP Golf Software provides golf courses with a full cloud solution to run their daily operations. Their integrated system includes Tee Time Software, which is fully-integrated with the point of sale, CRM, marketing, etc. foreUP software is completely cloud-based, meaning it can be viewed using any computer, tablet or mobile phone without the need for servers or IT departments.
“Previously, many golf solutions consisted of several disparate payments systems for mobile services, membership and pro shop sales,” said Stacey Finley Tappin, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Apriva. “foreUP’s latest solution not only combines these under one easy management system, but provides the latest in payments security and technology through integration to the Apriva gateway. We are proud to be their partner.”
Apriva’s Integration Services Program allows Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), and mobile and embedded developers, to easily implement credit, debit, EBT, loyalty and closed-loop payment processing into their solutions. Once integrated, applications and POS solutions can communicate with the Apriva Gateway over a wired or wireless network. Apriva maintains relationships with more than 30 payment processors in North America, along with all of the leading wireless carriers, and currently works with more than 1,100 merchant acquirers and ISOs across the United States and Canada, giving merchants and partners the choice to deploy end-to-end solutions best fit for their business.
