Shreveport, LA – PioneerRx is excited to announce the completion of Quick Chip EMV certification with Heartland Payment Systems.
PioneerRx is the first independent pharmacy management software to certify EMV Quick Chip transactions with Heartland Payment Systems. Quick Chip streamlines the secure checkout process by reducing the amount of time the card must remain inserted inside the EMV terminal, while also providing the security benefits of an EMV transaction.
By investing development effort into certifying existing EMV-equipped Equinox L5300 PCI 3 card terminals, PioneerRx customers benefit from this update without additional hardware upgrade costs or other third-party fees. Starting early November, the update will be released in phases, and PioneerRx will notify users when it is their turn to enable EMV.
EMV (Europay, MasterCard, and Visa) chip cards were created in response to the growing demand for additional security at the point of sale. EMV technology includes a small, rectangular chip on newer debit and credit cards which are inserted into the point of sale signature pad or tapped for contactless transactions. These chip cards create a unique transaction code with each use, providing an extra level of security when compared to the static data contained on traditional magnetic stripe cards.
