news TNS and P97 partnership enables more secure mobile and connected car payments P97 Networks and Transaction Network Services (TNS) are leading the way in facilitating secure, efficient, and reliable connected vehicle and mobile payments across North America and Europe. Under the agreement, TNS provides P97 a managed tokenisation service enabling the secure provisioning and payment authorisation of consumer card-on-file accounts for mobile and in-vehicle applications. Since its inception the partnership has enabled in-dash fuel payments alone for more than 3 million vehicles across the United States. “The Internet of Things is driving mobile commerce into retail fuel and cars, allowing merchants, oil and gas companies and manufacturers to develop greater consumer loyalty,” said TNS’ Chief Product Officer, Bill Versen. “Through our partnership, P97 Networks and TNS provide leading tokenisation services that protect sensitive consumer data. P97 also gains access to a host of processing partners through the use of TNS’ secure global managed communications platform.” The P97 PetroZone platform is a cloud-based mobile commerce and digital marketing solution that connects retail fuel, convenience, consumer packaged goods, quick-serve restaurants, and other merchants to their consumers by enabling payments and omni-channel digital offers on any device or connected car. P97 eases the purchasing process to increase sales, build greater brand loyalty, and lower operating costs. PetroZone is PCI DSS and SOC 2 Type II compliant, utilising Microsoft Azure Cloud Services with multi-factor authentication to protect sensitive cardholder data. The TNS solution involves token creation, enabling consumer payment accounts to be stored on file in return for tokens, which offer fraudsters no value if compromised. Once a token is generated for an account, all future transactions involving the same account and mobile device use tokens rather than actual account details. The cloud payment, enabled by P97, uses TNS’ tokenisation platform to ensure fast and secure payments. This technology is helping P97 and TNS continue to enable such things as in-dash fuel payments at participating Shell petrol stations across the U.S. Bleep officially launch new self-service epos kiosk Bleep UK PLC, the designer, manufacturer and supplier of innovative point of sale solutions, has announced the launch of a new, cutting edge Self-Service EPOS kiosk after several successful trial installations across a number of high-profile venues. The new Self-Service kiosk, the Bleep SS-821, has been developed by Bleeps’ own in-house, UK based team over the course of the last 2 years, and is designed to cater for the emerging demand of self-service point of sale technology while also complementing their existing portfolio of EPOS and Payment solutions. Bleep’s SS-821 offers a new experience for customers processing an order or making a transaction in retail, hospitality or events environments. The purpose-built kiosk comes complete with a built-in touch-screen, intuitive software and high-speed thermal receipt printer – and can even have an Ingenico card payment device integrated to create a truly all-in-one solution. All of this is built into a secure, steel casing which can be branded with any individual company logos and corporate colours. The large, vivid touch screen, with its intuitive, user- friendly interface allows customers to easily navigate menus, products and screens, quickly select items (for immediate collection or pre-ordering for half-time or an interval) then confirming an order and making a payment. Orders from the kiosk will then be immediately sent to a preparation area, via a kitchen printer or kitchen video display where they can then be prepared ready for collection. The SS-821 kiosk also links to W-BO (Web Back Office), for live price and product updates and real-time sales and stock reporting, providing businesses with precise data and metrics on exactly what has been ordered, where and when. n KIOSK solutions 11
