The Strategic Fit Enables the Two Companies to Offer Merchants a Pre-Certified, Off-The-Shelf, EMV Solution for Self-Service Kiosks
ROSH PINNA, ISRAEL – August 7th, 2018 – On Track Innovations Ltd. (OTI) (NASDAQ: OTIV), a global provider of near field communications (NFC) and cashless payment solutions, has announced their partner, Apriva, a technology company providing an adaptive platform for omnichannel payments and secure mobile communications, has published a white paper titled, “OTI Brings Diverse Cashless Payment Solutions,” which affirms the ongoing partnership for deploying next-generation self-serve and vending technologies.
Apriva enables broad acceptance for attended and unattended payments, including off-the-shelf EMV solutions. OTI’s continued collaboration with Apriva facilitates the production of an adaptive platform for omnichannel payments and secure mobile communications. This pre-integrated payment solution services the ever-growing unattended payments kiosk market. According to a recent white paper by Frank Meyer titled, “The Present-Day Kiosk and Its Benefit to Today’s Consumer,” the self-serve kiosk industry grew over 17% in 2017 and generated over $7.8 billion in annual sales.
“The OTI and Apriva cashless payments solution was the perfect choice for us,” said Renee Smith, President, and CTO of Parking BOXX. “The flexibility to manage both our EASE and CloudEASE portfolios with the same SDK, combined with the efficiency of an off-the-shelf, pre-certified EMV solution not only gave Parking BOXX a time-to-market advantage but also saved us the cost of months of integration and certification.”
The OTI/Apriva payment solution supports magnetic stripe reader (MSR) transactions, as well as EMV contact and contactless transactions with Elavon as the processing platform. This allows secure real-time, end-to-end data encryption and uses the industry standard, derived unique key per transaction (DUKPT) encryption method, without the cardholder’s card data stored. The Interactive Self-Service OTIKiosk Payment solution is available in the U.S. through the Las Vegas-based distributor, Unattended Card Payments Inc.
“OTI’s best in its class payment solution, combined with Apriva’s adaptive payment platform, brings our customers unmatched value, flexibility, and ease of integration, saving thousands of dollars and many months in development time and certification costs,” said Bill Gostowski, Vice President of Business Development at OTI America Inc. (a wholly owned subsidiary of OTI).
