Starmount has announced that it has partnered with Servebase and Ingenico to enable the company to deliver complete end-to-end solutions that meet all requirements for EMV (Europay, Mastercard, Visa) payments.
The partnerships underscore Starmount’s leadership role in the transition to EMV and chip and pin technologies and will enable Starmount to deploy its solutions for mobile selling and omni-channel customer engagement in the UK and Europe. The end-to-end EMV solution also ensures that Starmount’s U.S. customers are “future-proofed” for Visa’s October 2015 liability shift, which will require U.S. retailers to accept EMV chip transactions or else assume liability for fraudulent transactions.
Starmount’s solutions have already been certified for Ingenico’s EMV chip and pin-ready devices, and Starmount is now incorporating Servebase’s EMV payment processing technology into its offerings as well.
“Starmount is pleased to introduce an end-to-end EMV solution as we begin to focus on the UK and European markets and accelerate the company’s growth,” said Greg Davis, vice president, product management, Starmount. “By partnering with Servebase and Ingenico, Starmount is aligning ourselves with best-in-class providers of payments solutions with extensive experience in global markets.”
“We are pleased to partner with Starmount in bringing innovative and secure EMV-ready mobile payment solutions to the U.S. retailers,” said Rod Hometh, vice president of market development at Ingenico, North America. “Our joint offer will help retailers engage with their customers across channels by delivering a more personalized shoppers’ experience.”
“The US shift to EMV is one of the most exciting developments in the payments industry since the advent of mobile POS, and the partnership with Starmount is an important step in ensuring that retailers are fully compliant,” said Melissa Law, product marketing director, Servebase.
