Secure Payment Systems Releases Custom Check Conversion & Gift Card Processing Solution on the new Hypercom SPOS 09 Platform
 

Secure Payment Systems ("SPS") is pleased to announce that it has certified the Hypercom family of terminals on the Hypercom SPOS 09 operating platform (version A9B or greater). This platform traverses the entire platform of existing T7p (eprom 4.0 or greater), T77, T7plus, ICE5500, and ICE5700 point-of-sale terminals. Functioning as a drop down menu selection for those credit card acquirers running Hypercom's proprietary terminal management software (TermMaster and iTermMaster) SPS is now offering its customized check conversion and gift card processing services (with loyalty card processing soon to follow). While the SPOS 09 operating system is backward compatible to the T7p in all cases a minimum 512k memory chipset is required.

The check conversion software functions with an RDM imager (with or without franking), the Magtek Micr Image (non-franking), and in all non-imaging environments using the Magtek Mini Micr check reader (the only certified non-imaging check reader). "This will be a significant boost to our sales agents, Independent Sales Organizations, Merchant Acquiring Processors, and Banks that have been selling Hypercom terminals over the years", commented Kristin Helbert, SPS Director of Product Development. "We are pleased to be allied with such a professional organization and look forward to working toward continued terminal application enhancements in the future."
