MagTek Announces a Partnership with nCLOSE, Inc. and HP, Inc. to Enable Magnetic Stripe and EMV Chip Card Acceptance for Payments
Seal Beach, CA, January 12, 2020 - MagTek, a global leader in retail electronic payments and security technology, announced today a partnership with nCLOSE, Inc. a custom designer and manufacturer of Point of Sale (POS) protective enclosures and mounting solutions that house and protect tablets and mobile credit card readers. HP, a leader in point-of-sale solutions, worked with nCLOSE, to create a revolutionary credit card attachment module enabling EMV payments at the Point of Sale on the HP Engage One Prime Android terminals for retail, hospitality, health care, restaurants and more. This credit card attachment module by HP, nCLOSE and MagTek, allows parties to accept card payments in any vertical.
The MagTek eDynamo is a secure card reader authenticator that accepts magnetic stripe and EMV chip cards. It connects via USB or Bluetooth LE and can be used in a countertop mount, as a mobile handheld device, or built into a custom surround like the nCLOSE custom solution. eDynamo is L3 certified through MagTek's Magensa Services to industry leading processors, making implementation of payment solutions and applications faster.
"Merchants need more versatile solutions than ever before," said John Arato, Vice President and General Manager of MagTek Retail Solutions. "That's why MagTek engineers our products to meet the latest in payment trends and processor certifications. Now, with the addition of the MagTek, nCLOSE and HP Partnership, we believe we have created a simple and easy turn-key solution that utilizes the very best technology the industry has to offer, combined with major processor certifications."
nCLOSE specializes in taking two existing devices and hardening them to function as if they were built as one. This provides entire custom solutions, module add-ons, custom charging circuits, and docking stations, making your ideas work.
"We were looking for a reader that was secure and reliable," Jimmy Durham, President of nCLOSE said. "We wanted a solution that would meet our high standards, deliver a small footprint, and work with the existing certified processors. We needed a provider who could stand-up to the rigors of the HP environment and found MagTek met these needs."
HP Engage One Prime works for both employee and customer facing environments making it an ideal solution when flexibility and scalability are required. The integration of a secure card reader authenticator makes it more attractive to a larger merchant market and more importantly offers PCI compliant devices. HP Engage One Prime and the nCLOSE module, using the MagTek eDynamo, are available in Black or White and the SKU is NCL-HPENAGE-EDY.
