Pivotal Payments' FlexPoint Division Partners with Datacap Systems Inc. to Simplify Payments Integration

Pivotal Payments, a leading provider of technology-driven global payment processing solutions, today announced a partnership between its FlexPoint division and Datacap Systems Inc., a top North American provider of payment integration software. The partnership signifies the launch of Pivotal Payments' exclusive FlexPoint ePay and FlexPoint Tran services based on Datacap's popular integrated payments middleware.

The combined hardware, software and middleware solutions will provide FlexPoint's network of Value Added Resellers (VARs) and Integrated Software Vendors (ISVs) affordable and simple solutions to rapidly integrate their payments at the point-of-sale and evolve their payment distribution strategies. By combining the strength of Datacap's robust ePay and Tran payment integration software and Pivotal Payments' world-class payment-processing services, FlexPoint will offer VARs and ISVs more integration choices than ever under its FlexPoint Partner Advantage Program.

These robust PA-DSS-validated solutions are currently integrated into hundreds of POS systems in practically all vertical markets and support an array of embedded applications including ECRs (electronic cash registers), mobile POS, kiosks, vending machines and more. The program offers a logical roadmap for payment solutions providers to evolve their business models as they expand their distribution and payment responsibilities, enter more markets and ultimately increase their revenues.

"Pivotal Payments' partnership with Datacap is another example of our commitment to align with best-of-breed, innovative solution providers, creating more payment technology options for merchants and opportunities for our partners," said Joe Lane, Senior Vice President of FlexPoint, a division of Pivotal Payments. "We continue to expand our certifications to create new partnerships that will deliver higher value to our clients across North America."

The partnership will immediately cover POS dealers in the U.S. with future support planned for the Canadian VAR market, resulting in a comprehensive North American program. The joint solution will also provide U.S. merchants with an easy transition to EMV via one simple integration ready for the October 1, 2015 liability shift.
