Apriva has inked a partnership with Globalcom Engineering, a leader in payments hardware. By integrating Apriva’s Gateway with Globalcom hardware, this partnership brings proven EMV hardware into a wide variety of unattended markets in the U.S., including parking, kiosk, car wash, banking, gaming, airline kiosk, vending, and retail.
This deal follows on the heels of the recently announced partnership between Apriva and Amano McGann, the leading parking solutions provider serving more than 5,000 locations in North and South America. Amano McGann will be utilizing Globalcom hardware solutions with Apriva technology, marking the first joint customer between the two brands, as well as the debut of the joint solution in the U.S. market. A unique feature of the combined Apriva-Globalcom solution is that the payment application lives on the device itself, reducing the PCI scope and associated regulation compliance requirements.
Apriva’s Integration Services Program allows Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), and mobile and embedded developers, to easily implement credit, debit, EBT, loyalty and closed-loop payment processing into their solutions. Once integrated, applications and POS solutions can communicate with the Apriva Gateway over a wired or wireless network providing access to payment processing providers.
Apriva maintains relationships with more than 35 payment processors in North America, along with all leading wireless carriers, and currently works with more than 1,000 merchant acquirers and ISOs across the United States and Canada.
