  • The Cloud as the most suitable platform

  • Advantages for hardware suppliers
  • Centralized software service
  • Lower cost of ownership
  • Minimal configuration requirements

“EMV Kernel solutions in the Cloud can offer major benefits for the payments industry, particularly the USA,” noted Gumbley. “The U.S. has just begun the process of migrating its payments infrastructure to secure EMV Chip and Pin and Chip and Signature. American Express, Discover, MasterCard and VISA have already publicly declared their roadmaps and the deadlines when all payment terminals must be EMV compliant. We believe that offering EMV Kernel technology in the cloud could potentially offer American terminal makers and others a timely and low cost solution for EMV.”

CreditCall has deployed more than 1,000,000 of its EMV Kernel software solutions for Chip and PIN and Chip and Signature terminals worldwide. Its EMV Kernels are used in contact and contactless applications, including card readers, POS, ATMs, petrol pumps, kiosks, ticketing terminals, smartphones and tablets.
