On Track Innovations (OTI) has received certification from Alliance Data for its Saturn 5000 and Saturn 6000 contactless readers. The readers can support global contactless EMV applications published by MasterCard and Visa, Mifare technology, and non-EMV contactless payment programs from other major financial institutions, including ExpressPay from American Express and Discover.
Alliance Data is a leading provider of loyalty and marketing solutions derived from transaction-rich data, and provides payment services across several industry verticals. “Receiving Class A certification is another milestone in achieving leadership in the payments market – and will enhance the nationwide support for those merchants adding the OTI Saturn 5000 or Saturn 6000 contactless readers, creating a secured seamless upgrade path to contactless transactions,” said Oded Bashan, Chairman & CEO, OTI.
The Saturn 5000 and Saturn 6000 approval is for Alliance Data’s consolidated countertop application running on the Ingenico i5100, and VeriFone’s Omni 3740/3750/Vx510/Vx570 platforms. Alliance Data certification includes merchant deployment, profile setup and download, documentation and specially trained 24 x 7 x 365 help desk support, making the Saturn 5000 and Saturn 6000 easy to implement and maintain for Alliance Data acquirers and Independent Sales Organizations and their merchants.
