Radiant Systems Inc. has announced the release of Token Replacement, a new payment security feature that allocates a unique identifier, or token, to cardholder data at the RBS WorldPay host to prevent personal information from being stored on the point of sale.
"Token Replacement allows restaurant owners to place a greater focus on their operations by helping to ensure payment processing occurs in a secure environment," Jeff Hughes, Radiant Systems vice president of hosted solutions, said in a news release. "Unlike other competitive alternatives, there are no additional transaction fees associated with our Token Replacement feature. This is one of many examples of how Radiant is striving to help our customers better manage data security."
Token Replacement is designed as a point-of-sale feature that is tightly integrated into the latest version of the Aloha POS. When credit cards are swiped, data is first sent to the secure RBS WorldPay host, which then processes the payment and returns a unique token identifier to the POS for future reference. Additionally, the integration of Token Replacement with Aloha POS software increases speed of service by reducing processing time to let sales happen faster and maximize profits.
