Feb. 24, 2009, Abbotsford, BC – This week, restaurant point
of sale developer SpeedLine Solutions, Inc., began offering credit, debit, and
gift card processing through integrated payments processor, Mercury Payment
Systems.



The SpeedLine POS-Mercury partnership offers two benefits
for restaurant operators: direct payment processing and free gift card
processing. For the first time, restaurants can process payments directly
through SpeedLine POS and Mercury, without the need for third-party middleware
and support. SpeedLine POS customers also save with free MercuryGift card
transactions, a value that includes unlimited card swipes, balance inquiries,
and monthly account maintenance.

“The SpeedLine POS and Mercury partnership addresses
individual merchants’ needs.” said Steve Wilson, Mercury’s vice president of
merchant sales. “Combined, we offer a seamless, direct processing solution with
the added value of a full-featured gift card program and none of the costs.”

Other benefits to restaurant operators include free, 24/7
live customer and technical support for payment processing, Web reports and
tools, and authorization outage protection.

“Restaurant operators are looking for new ways to control
costs and drive up sales,” says SpeedLine POS marketing manager Jennifer Wiebe.
“We are excited to be able to offer our customers a more cost effective choice
for payment processing, and we believe that Mercury will be a valuable partner
in the SpeedLine Technology Network.”
