Partnership Extends Computop’s Payment Offerings In-Store, Enabling a Seamless Omnichannel Payment Solution in the US

Computop, a leading global Payment Service Provider (PSP), and POSDATA Group, Inc., the premier payments systems distributor for the North American channel, today announced a strategic partnership.  Through this agreement, POSDATA will distribute, manage and support P2PE Point-of-Sale (PoS) terminals connected to Computop’s global payment platform in the US.  The P2PE PoS terminals will protect retailers and consumers from data theft, as credit card data is heavily encrypted, as well as enable retailers to reduce their PCI certification efforts.

POSDATA is a North American distributor for payment technologies, offering deployment related services, including key injection.  Computop offers Computop Paygate, a PCI-certified omnichannel payment platform that provides merchants with secure payment solutions and efficient fraud prevention.  Together, the companies will provide US retailers with a smooth deployment, implementation, and ongoing first line support of their terminal landscape and a secure, managed offering for their in-store payments.  
“This solution will have a significant impact in the US market by having POSDATA provide deployment services and technical support for Computop end-users,” said Jeffrey Creighton, CEO of POSDATA. Creighton continued, “It is an effective way for both companies to provide best-in-class service in their unique areas of expertise.”

“POSDATA’s PCI certification and experience ensure compliance with the high demands that the PCI P2PE standards set regarding the registration and security measures for every single card reader.  Through this partnership, our US customers will benefit from POSDATA’s ability to quickly deploy and service their day-to-day terminal needs,” said Ralf Gladis, CEO of Computop.  “Computop now provides US retailers with a complete omnichannel solution -- from PoS to e-commerce to mobile commerce.  With one comprehensive offering, not only do merchants benefit from a highly secure payment platform across their channels, but they also gain a consolidated reconciliation, reporting and analytics tool through Computop’s Paygate.”
