POS Terminal Makes Merchant Move to EMV Like Magic

Product: PRESTO 210p

Company: Intellect International, N.V.

There's a sleek new point-of-sale device in town-it's coming all the way from down under-and your merchants might think it well worth the trip. Melbourne, Australia-based Intellect designed the product called the PRESTO 210p attended transaction device.

Intellect developed the PRESTO 210p to help merchants transition affordably from a magnetic card reader to an EMV, or smart card, infrastructure when needed. The product comes with a magnetic card reader that reads track 1 + 2 or track 2 + 3 and an EMV certified-smart card reader. It has a 32-bit processor, and its memory holds 256KB of RAM (or up to 4MB battery-backed memory) and 1 to 4 MB of Flash memory. It also has a thermal receipt printer that prints 384 dots per line.

The device displays 2 characters x 20 characters with an optional 64 x 128 pixel graphic with backlit LCD screen. Intellect also offers various opportunities for merchant branding. Merchants can have the PRESTO's keypad branded; custom logos and a graphic screen option allow merchants to place a logo or image where customers will see it the most. The PRESTO 210p is EMV 2000 and VISA PED2004 certified.

Intellect designs and develops electronic payment and smart card solutions. Its products range from secure payment, smart card and mobile payment terminals to personal payment and financial systems solutions.

The PRESTO 210p is available for ordering. General Credit Forms, Inc. and payment processor GMS Worldwide, LLC (a member service provider of JPMorgan Chase) are both offering the product in the U.S. It's also being sold in Australia, the UK, Belgium and Mexico.
