Gateway Partners with FreedomPay to Offer Customers Industry-Leading Payment Innovation, EMV and Security
Gilbertsville, PA (September 21, 2017) – The world leader in ticketing software, admission control and revenue generation for the attractions industry, Gateway Ticketing Systems® has partnered with FreedomPay to significantly extend its payment card processing options to customers, both within the U.S. and globally.
Through FreedomPay, Gateway will offer its customers EMV and near-field communication (NFC), coupled with PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE), the industry’s highest standard for payment data security. With EMV-ready payment terminals and card data tokenization, Gateway’s customers will experience the most advanced credit card security protection. Tokenization provides a safe representation of a credit card, without ever exposing the Galaxy point-of-sale system to the actual credit card numbers. Tokenization supports the use of our payment plans feature, which allows products to be purchased over time with automatic recurring payments, without the risk of storing personal credit card information.
“In recent years, with the addition of EMV (chip) cards, the ability to securely process a credit card has become significantly more complex. Keeping up with constantly changing geographically specific payment processing solutions is a significant concern for companies like ours, whose solutions are deployed worldwide,” says Jerry Lake, Gateway’s Integration Manager. “After researching dozens of solution providers around the world, we kept coming back to our Philadelphia neighbors at FreedomPay as the solution that added the most benefit for our domestic and international deployment. Their international coverage roadmap aligns well with our interests, and they also have services and features which we were previously unable to offer to our U.S. customer base.”
Craig Champagne, FreedomPay’s Vice President of Business Development, adds: “Gateway works with world-class customers – from famous destinations and historical sites to U.S. treasures including zoos, museums, aquariums, festivals, ferries and more. Being able to offer our solutions to these attractions is exciting for us.”
The FreedomPay Commerce Platform is the best way for merchants to simplify complex payment environments. Validated by the PCI Security Standards Council for Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) along with EMV, NFC and DCC capabilities, global leaders in retail, hospitality, gaming, education, healthcare and financial services trust FreedomPay to deliver unmatched security and advanced value added services. With broad integrations across top point-of-sale, device manufacturers and payment processors, supported by rapid API adoption, FreedomPay is driving the future of commerce and customer interaction. The FreedomPay Commerce Platform operates on the Windows Platform and is fully supported by the security and scalability of the Microsoft Azure cloud. For more information, go to www.freedompay.com.
