Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leading provider of electronic transaction processing services, today announced the introduction of an advanced, flexible processing solution, Global Transport - Client software.
Global Transport - Client software is the next component of the Global Transport processing solution that enables merchants, software developers, Value Added Resellers and Original Equipment Manufacturers to use their Point-of-Sale (POS) applications to easily integrate to payment devices such as magnetic stripe readers, PCI-PED PIN pads, signature capture devices, and receipt printers.
Targeting the "face to face" retail, grocery, and restaurant markets, the new software enables developers to integrate payment processing into their POS applications using OCX or ActiveX programming. The Global Transport - Client software seamlessly interfaces with the Global Transport - Gateway, enabling merchants to process credit, debit and EBT transactions more quickly through a single solution.
"Our new Global Transport - Client software directly manages the transaction hardware and peripheral processing solutions, eliminating the need for POS software developers to continuously change their applications to keep with up the programming involved to support new transaction hardware. Our customers have told us that they wanted the payment hardware to be managed uniformly and have a single Application Program Interface for moving payment information between the transaction hardware and the POS application," said Dean Giancola, Vice President of Product for Global Payments Inc.
