Are You Ready to Use a Next-Generation Payment Solution?

With credit/debit traffic increasing rapidly, migrating from slower dial-up transaction processing to faster “high speed” Ethernet processing, IP offers cost savings, increased reliability and enhanced functionality. Ethernet presents tremendous opportunities for electronic transactions such as accessing higher bandwidth technologies so that businesses can take advantage of faster transaction times and customers can purchase goods more efficiently.

Most businesses with an existing IP network or plans to implement one can reduce charges associated with POS terminal data transfer, telephone lines and relevant communications. The good news is, IP solutions fulfilled by Advanced do not require much more than the appropriate equipment and an Ethernet drop.

To leverage these Ethernet efficiencies in electronic transactions, Advanced, through our preferred IP Terminal solutions from Hypercom incorporates secure Ethernet functionality in its Plus family of terminals. Along with Ethernet connectivity, Plus terminals offer multi-host support, a fast, integrated printer, and ports connecting additional peripherals such as check readers.

Merchants are struggling to more efficiently handle an increasing number of credit and debit transactions, especially during peak times, to increase sales and provide better customer service. They are also looking to add value-added services at the point of sale that require high-speed connectivity.

Dial telephone authorizations can no longer handle this flood of card transactions efficiently. Dial-up connectivity has created a costly bottleneck of time and money that merchants have been waiting to overcome.

The Wait is Over!

IP point of sale solutions break the telecom bottleneck by letting merchants process transactions over a lightning-fast, always-on connection using IP – the same Internet Protocol that allows you to browse the web or send and receive email.

IP is used today in cell phones, satellite TV, home PCs, and portable laptops and PDAs. IP can work over the public Internet or over private networks. These new Enhanced Communications electronic payment systems use that same IP to send secure transmissions that are reliable, simple to use and flexible to operate.
