SpeedLine POS launches secure EMV and NFC payment

A new software release from SpeedLine Solutions is designed to add secure and flexible EMV payment options for restaurants.

The new EMV options safeguard restaurants from the transfer of liability for chip card-present credit card fraud, SpeedLine said in a news release. The focus of this new software release is payment security with enhancements to meet the new requirements of PCI-DSS 3.1 as well as EMV.

WIth the new system, no payment card data is stored by the point-of-sale system, the company said. When combined with support for encrypted EMV and tokenized payment information, new secure options can protect cardholder data from PIN pad to processor.

“EMV delivers another level of protection against fraud,” said SpeedLine president and CEO John de Wolde. “And as consumers begin to use PIN pads for payment in more of the places they shop, our restaurant clients recognize that their guests will feel more secure in patronizing restaurant brands that have upgraded to chip card readers.”


With new EMV PIN pads and this software upgrade, restaurant operators can also speed up service, offering NFC contactless payment and digital wallet payment solutions such as Apple Pay and Google Wallet.

“The result for restaurant guests is more confidence in the restaurant brand’s commitment to their security, and new convenience and freedom to pay the way they choose,” de Wolde said.
