CreditCall announced it has joined the EMV Academy, the EMV training and consultancy organization committed to facilitating the migration to EMV chip based payment systems in the United States.
With the addition of CreditCall, EMV Academy will now feature CreditCall’s EMV Level 2 Kernel products in all EMV Academy workshops. Coupled with CreditCall’s products, EMV Academy will provide U.S. acquirers, issuers, merchants and others with the training and education they need to make the EMV migration seamless.
The U.S. is the last of the G20 nations to adopt the new EMV chip payment standard. EMV reduces card fraud and provides a more secure and rewarding shopping experience for U.S. consumers. Both VISA and MasterCard announced industry road maps last year requiring EMV compliance beginning in 2013.
In addition, CreditCall launched its mobile payments solution CardEase Mobile in the UK, a payment app which works in conjunction with a mobile card reader. The new Chip and PIN-based mobile payment technology offers firms a speedy, secure, and cost effective way to complete financial transactions via smart phones and tablets, boosting cash flow for business both large and small.
