Payment solution provider, Apriva, completed EMV certification for a new unattended card reader that can accept both campus card payments as well as EMV chip-enabled bankcards.
The BV1000 card reader, developed by Globalcom Engineering, connects through the Apriva Gateway to enable secure payment options in self-service retail environments such as parking garages and car washes. The device features a rugged design for outdoor use and can withstand extreme weather conditions.
“Our recent EMV certification for the BV1000 device over Apriva’s Gateway provides a unique opportunity for campus environments,” says Russ Palay, Product Director, Market Solutions at Apriva. “Campuses can offer an EMV solution for their unattended parking garages, as well as other unattended or self-service environments.”
As the move to EMV progresses, it is essential that campuses migrate to EMV-accepting payment terminals in all areas where the institution functions as a merchant. “Providing an EMV solution to the campus market for these unattended environments is critical, not only to adhering to card association directives around chip card acceptance, but also to data security protection requirements securely processing student, staff, and visitor card data,” explains Palay.
Apriva also offers its Integration Services Program, which enables 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.
