Heartland Payment Systems Inc., the official concessions processor of Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, said it processed 43,982 credit and debit card transactions, a total of $924,500, over the Super Bowl weekend.
In expectation of a big transaction weekend (Feb. 4 and 5), Heartland added 60 wireless terminals to the 600 already in use at Lucas Oil Stadium where the game was played. Heartland Chairman and CEO Robert O. Carr said the processing of so many transactions in such a short period of time "was a testament to the reliability and security of our processing platform and customer service support."
In other news, Heartland launched a recruitment and awareness building campaign in Tallahassee, Fla., in February 2012. The effort to recruit, hire and build its local sales force continues with an intensive media effort through March 9, 2012. The company said the program is intended to bring jobs to an area suffering from a greater than 8 percent unemployment rate the last two years.
