Merchant Warehouse has announced a new partnership with POS software provider Aldelo designed to help hospitality organizations address the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council's (PCI SSC) mission to help organizations prevent credit card fraud.
Losing sensitive data by way of natural disasters or physical theft can have severe consequences on a company, possibly crippling an entire organization. The partnership between Merchant Warehouse and Aldelo addresses the matter by adding extra lines of security to the next generation of Aldelo's EDC POS system through the full integration with Merchant Warehouse's secure MerchantWARE Payment Gateway. Payment Gateway encrypts credit card data at the point of swipe through the MagTek MSR Card Reader.
"This partnership will add a level of security to our systems that is unmatched in the payment processing industry," said Harry Tu, CEO of Aldelo Systems Inc. "The MerchantWARE solution integrates seamlessly with our EDC POS system and will give merchants the benefit of knowing their data and their customers is secure at all times."
Merchant Warehouse's MerchantWARE solution encrypts the data at the card reader, completely eliminating the threat of a data breach. With MerchantWARE, merchants never store or transmit unencrypted credit card information.
"This partnership responds to a demand for a method of security that is fast, easy to use, reliable, and most important, secure," said Henry Helgeson, co-CEO of Merchant Warehouse. "We have been developing products with our customers and partners in mind, and this integrated solution brings a new means of security to the hospitality industry. We are proud to be at the forefront of this pioneering technology."
