Electronic Payment Services, Inc. (EPS) announced the certification of an electronic payment processing solution for NCR’s ScanMaster Windows NT point-of-sale (POS) system. Available now, the solution pairs EPS’ Manta Systems Spectrum EFT software with the ScanMaster system and enables retailers to accept debit, credit and EBT payments in the check-out lane.
The system combines NCR’s 745x POS terminal and 5944 PIN pad, the NCR ScanMaster Windows NT server and Manta Systems Spectrum EFT controller on a single LAN. EPS’ Manta Systems development group has written software for the NT server which sends transactions to Spectrum for payment processing, including:
— Store and forward processing — batching and resubmitting transactions when communication with the host is unavailable
— EBT voucher processing — submitting off-line EBT transactions electronically as required by state EBT programs
— Accounting — cashier and terminal accountability, daily and weekly reporting, daily settlement, real-time status reporting
Ron Nuti, National Software Sales Executive, explains the advantages of the Spectrum/ScanMaster configuration: “Using Spectrum for payments separates that activity from the ScanMaster server, conserving resources for other applications. NCR dealers favor the two-server approach for reliability and performance. Using Spectrum also enabled them to produce a solid solution in a very short time. This solution is a perfect migration path for retailers who want to upgrade their 2127/Spectrum systems, and it is also an excellent choice for anyone selecting the ScanMaster POS system.”
