Sterling Payment Technologies and Osprey Retail Systems Announce New EMV Solution

Retailers Using Osprey’s POS Software can Accept EMV Transactions

Sterling Payment Technologies, a leading provider of payment processing, today announced it has partnered with Osprey Retail Systems, a point of sale software developer, to offer a semi-integrated EMV payment solution to retailers in niche markets such as liquor and wine, pets, and specialty grocers. Using both Datacap NETePay™ and Ingenico’s Telium payment terminals, the joint EMV solution provides multi-layered security with point-to-point encryption (P2PE), thereby reducing a merchant’s PCI compliance scope.

“Sterling is proud to partner with Osprey and provide a solution that makes the transition to EMV painless and affordable for its retail customers,” said Jim Raftice, President U.S. and Canada, EVO Payments International, parent company of Sterling Payment Technologies. “We are committed to offering software partners such as Osprey secure EMV solutions that are easy to integrate, flexible, and reliable.”

Businesses using terminals that are not able to process EMV chip card transactions are liable for chargebacks associated with payments made with counterfeit, lost or stolen payment cards. This burden can represent significant risk of losses to businesses that do not use EMV-enabled point of sale systems.

“Sterling offered levels of support during the EMV integration process that I could not find with any other partner,” said Roger Blanchard, President of Osprey Retail Systems. “As a result, we are able to provide our customers with a range of secure, PCI-compliant POS applications.”

As a leading global merchant acquirer, EVO is dedicated to providing fast, affordable and secure payment processing to merchants. Through its Sterling Payment division, EVO provides easy payment integrations that include EMV solutions, P2P encryption, tokenization, out-of-scope solutions, mobile solutions, and cloud-based POS reporting platforms. Sterling’s focus on technology and service allows it to provide superior partner and merchant support.
