MEDICINE HAT, ALBERTA – Auto-Star Compusystems Inc., a leading developer of point of sale and retail management software, is pleased to announce the integration of the Star-Plus point of sale solution with Moneris Solutions Corporation’s (“Moneris”) EMV debit and credit card processing for Canadian retailers.
EMV card processing replaces magnetic-stripe cards with an encrypted, embedded microchip. The data stored on the chip requires a PIN to complete the transaction, offering an added layer of protection against card fraud.
“Our integration to Moneris provides greater choice to our retail partners and offers them the latest security and feature sets available in the payment marketplace. Using this integration may also reduce the PCI scope for retailers, further saving them time and money,” said Ivan Long, Vice President of Operations at Auto-Star.
“As a leader in payment technology, securing sensitive customer data while providing best-in-class solutions is our priority. Our partnership with Auto-Star delivers solutions that meet the unique business management needs of clients while streamlining and securing payments,” said Chris Lee, President, North American Strategic Partnerships and Emerging Markets for Moneris
