Sound Payments Inc., a Jacksonville, Fla.-based multi-channel, diversified technology company, has introduced its multi-point, cloud-based retrofit payment solution for the petroleum industry.
With the petroleum industry mandating the move to EMV by 2020, stations can cost-effectively enable EMV without full construction and meet industry requirements while eliminating the need to close their stations for several weeks.
“We are excited to be attending this expo and introducing our solution at a great venue,” said Andrew Russell, president of Sound Payments. “Our company strives to offer technology solutions that solve challenges businesses face, and Quantum Petro can truly help independent stations cost-effectively meet requirements.”
The cloud adheres to internal systems and interfaces with standard industry protocols. The deployment and industry strategy ensure a seamless transition and minimizes downtime by phasing deployment while also giving the option to temporarily run the old and new system simultaneously.
The all-in-one payment terminal supports QR code scanning, PIN-on-glass, MSR, EMV chip and PIN, NFC for Apple Pay and Google Pay, bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and includes a built-in security camera. The device is simple to install with only one cord for power.
“Quantum Petro offers a cloud-based, retrofit payment solution that cost-effectively solves EMV and PCI while offering numerous features and simplified implementation,” said Cory Schlegel, director of product development for Sound Payment’s Quantum Petro. “There is no other available solution in the market that offers a similar product at our lower price point.”
The platform can accept numerous payment methods, including EMV, NFC, wallet apps, loyalty programs and gift cards. The cloud-based integration solution allows for multiple end points to connect numerous devices to the store.
The direct to processor transaction connection allows for easier payment processing options and the platform is flexible so it can easily support other innovation.
