SLIM CD certifies IDTECH Augusta EMV card reader

Coral Springs, Fla., Jul 20, 2017 – SLIM CD, Inc. a software developer and service provider is proud to announce it has certified the new IDTECH Augusta reader to operate in USB Keyboard Emulation such that it can replace traditional MSR card readers without significant effort and without certification. This semi-integrated solution allows merchants and developers to easily accept EMV Chip Cards without installing drivers or specialized software systems.

“Slim CD’s drop-in replacement for Magnetic Swipe Card Readers is an industry-first and we are proud to be the first to bring this approach to the market”, said Sami Slim, President and CEO of SLIM CD, Inc. He continued, “Our team’s commitment to insuring this product’s ease of use for merchants and simplicity of integration for developers is overwhelmingly evident in the results. It’s the easiest and lowest-cost solution to EMV problems, and the results are a certified and semi-integrated solution for use on multiple major US processors so merchants can begin using this solution immediately.”

Frank Haggar, Director of Product Development for SLIM CD, Inc. explained “Developers can simply collect the data from the Augusta in the same manner as they already collect MSR data, then send that data to SLIM CD for processing. Our servers handle all the rest. The developer does not need to make significant code changes, if any, to accept EMV transactions. Their current integration with SLIM CD can handle the EMV transactions on their behalf. For developers not yet integrated with SLIM CD, the tools we provide allow them to integrate in minutes by using traditional methods of accepting card swipe data. This provides the easiest and fastest possible EMV solution that can work with either POS systems or web/cloud based virtual terminals, and can even work on an Apple Mac.”

The SLIM CD payment gateway also includes an integrated product suite that includes the “Slim CD for PC, “SlimCD for iPhone”, “SlimCD for Android”, Web-based Virtual Terminal, Hosted Payment Pages, an Invoicing System, a shopping cart, End-to-End encryption services, cloud-based tokenization and data storage, a customer database, and fraud detection services. The Slim CD PC desktop applications run on any personal computer with internet connectivity.
