Heartland Payment Systems Now Supported by Palm POS
PRINCETON, N.J. -- Heartland Payment Systems Inc. completed its integration to The Pinnacle Corp.'s Palm POS interface, providing convenience store operators with yet another payments processing option.
Palm POS -- specifically designed for the petroleum and convenience store industry -- provides users with the ability to comply with Payment Card Industry (PCI) requirements, while also providing loyalty solutions and business intelligence tools. In addition, Pinnacle's platform allows for easier expansion as the industry shifts from magnetic stripe credit and debit cards to Europay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV) chip-and-PIN cards.
"Having the Palm POS and Pinnacle's suite of offerings available to our non-branded petroleum/c-store clients further enhances the services and support we provide," said Bill McCollough, Heartland's executive director of petroleum."As an experienced petroleum processor that developed one of the first electronic transactions at the pump, this certification is another step in our continued expansion as one of the leaders in the petroleum/c-store industry, where Heartland serves more than 49,000 c-stores with a variety of solutions and data security."
Pinnacle is excited to add Heartland to its list of non-branded payments processing clients supported by Palm, noted Denise Lewis, Pinnacle's POS and payments product manager. "Heartland has been an integral Pinnacle partner for nearly 15 years as the payments processor for some of our branded host interfaces," she relayed. "The completion of this new interface broadens the options for our non-branded clients."
Princeton, N.J.-based Heartland Payments Systems Inc., the fifth-largest payments processor in the United States, offers credit/debit/prepaid card processing, mobile commerce and eCommerce solutions, and more.
Arlington, Texas-based The Pinnacle Corp. provides products that automate the broad spectrum of convenience store operators and supply chain management of fuel operations.
