Focus POS Teams with Sterling Payment Technologies for EMV Solution

Focus POS, provider of restaurant point of sale software, has announced a partnership with Sterling Payment Technologies to offer a comprehensive EMV solution to businesses in the hospitality industry. This EMV solution offers restaurants the capability to accept payments from mobile wallets thanks to NFC and tokenization technologies.
 
EMV became a necessity in the hospitality industry thanks to the liability shift that took place in October of 2015. This shift meant that any restaurant that wasn’t EMV compliant would be held accountable for certain fraudulent transactions processed by their system; utilizing the proper EMV technology protects businesses and customers from fraud. Focus POS customers who use the VeriFone VX 805 and the latest Focus software can take advantage of their cutting edge EMV solution offered in conjunction with Sterling. This semi-integrated solution protects electronic payments, so Focus POS doesn’t directly handle sensitive customer data and information less likely to be stolen.
 
In order for restaurants to succeed, they must offer EMV transaction support and credit card data tokenization. With the growing popularity of mobile wallets and payments, NFC technology is also a requirement. Focus POS is committed to delivering robust and intuitive POS solutions, and their partnership with Sterling highlights this commitment. Restaurant owners shouldn’t have to worry about fraudulent transactions, and this comprehensive EMV solution will ensure that they can focus their efforts elsewhere to achieve success for their businesses.
