Ingenico Group, the global leader in seamless payment, and Evertec (NYSE/ EVTC), a leading full-service transaction processing business in Latin America, announced their partnership to offer Evertec’s clients the most advanced technology in POS through a complete renewal of its terminal base across Central America. This includes EMV terminals, PCI-PTS v3 certified and supporting contactless payment.
All devices enable EMV Chip & PIN, Swipe & Sign and contactless payment. Evertec’s clients will leverage a highly secure solution, based on a fully scalable and reliable operating system (OS) embedded in the world’s most widely deployed terminal range. And beyond these benefits, the partnership entails warranty services and access to Ingenico’s Latin American repair centre. Evertec is an early adopter of Ingenico’s new technology in the region as one of the first providers to roll out the Telium Tetra Move/2500 terminal. This robust device is already PCI-PTS 4.x certified and features a large spectrum of connectivity (3G, GPRS, dual SIM, Ethernet and modem) as well as extended battery life.
Ingenico was selected as partner for its comprehensive offering of EMV compliant devices, successfully adopted worldwide, and local support services in all our Central American locations. These advantages align well with our business strategy to provide mission-critical technology solutions to our diversified customer base, ranging from leading financial organizations to merchants, corporations and government institutions.” said Daniel Barba, Product & Marketing VP for Latam at Evertec.
