World leading provider of ticketing software, admission control and revenue generation solutions for the attractions industry, Gateway Ticketing Systems® has teamed up with FreedomPay to offer its customers the very latest in payment card processing options.
The partnership extends Gateway’s range to include EMV and near-field communication (NFC), coupled with PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE). This encryption solution meets the industry’s highest standard of payment data security.
According to Gateway’s Integration Manager, Jerry Lake, the introduction of EMV cards has made secure processing much more complex:
“Keeping up with constantly changing, geographically specific, payment processing solutions is a significant concern for companies like ours, whose solutions are deployed worldwide,” he explains.
The most advanced credit card security protection
By offering EMV-ready payment terminals and card data tokenization, Gateway’s customers will benefit from the most advanced credit card security protection. (Tokenization substitutes sensitive data, such as credit card numbers, with non-sensitive data.) This removes the potential risks associated with storing personal credit card information.
The system also supports the use of Gateway’s payment plans feature, which enables products to be purchased over time via automatic recurring payments.
“After researching dozens of solution providers around the world, we kept coming back to our Philadelphia neighbours at FreedomPay as the solution that added the most benefit for our domestic and international deployment,” continues Lake.
“Their international coverage roadmap aligns well with our interests. They also have services and features which we were previously unable to offer to our U.S. customer base.”
“Gateway works with world-class customers – from famous destinations and historical sites to U.S. treasures including zoos, museums, aquariums, festivals, ferries and more,” observes Craig Champagne, FreedomPay’s Vice President of Business Development. “Being able to offer our solutions to these attractions is exciting for us.”
