Apriva Completes EMV Certification of Globalcom’s BV1000 on Global Payments

Company Expands EMV Certifications in Unattended Markets
 
Scottsdale, Ariz. May 19 2016 — Apriva, the leading provider of secure end-to-end wireless transaction processing solutions, announced today that it has completed EMV certification with Global Payments for Globalcom Engineering’s BV1000 device connecting through the Apriva Gateway. This certification provides vendors with the ability to provide more secure payment options to customers in unattended retail environments, such as self-service parking and car wash solutions.
 
The certification spans all major card brands including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, enabling the use of EMV chip card technology. The Globalcom BV1000 units are ruggedized for use outdoors and can withstand extreme weather conditions, making them ideal for this purpose. Due to their durable nature, this unattended solution is frequently used at self-service payment stations in parking garages and car washes around the country.
 
“Unattended solutions should offer end-users the safety, security and choice in how they want to pay,” said Stacey Finley Tappin, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Communications at Apriva. “This latest EMV certification builds on our partnerships with both Global Payments and Globalcom to deliver more choices to unattended vendors and their customers throughout the U.S.”
 
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 35 payment processers 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.
