Bringing Cash & Card Payments to the Next Level

Mellon and RBS unveil a fully-integrated cash & card payments acceptance solution using Ingenico Group smart terminals.

Athens, Greece, April 23, 2015 --( Mellon Technologies, RBS and Ingenico Group announce today the extension of their cooperation in innovative payment solution delivery, resulting in a fully integrated solution streamlining cash and card transactions at the point of sale. The solution combines the innovative Ingenico smart terminals with the recently launched next generation RBS cash registers, the successful integration of which was managed by Mellon.

The two systems are connected through a specific communication protocol and exchange the necessary data every time a card-based transaction (debit, credit or prepaid) is taking place. Thanks to the fully-integrated information system, the transaction details are sent from the cash register to the payment terminal automatically, without requiring any manual entry of the purchase amount on the payment terminal. This way, it helps reduce the check-out time, eliminate the amount entering errors, while the cash register system provides a detailed report of all payments transactions, including those made with a banking card.

The solution fully complies with the Ministry of Finance and the local Tax authorities’ mandates with regards to retail transactions handling, as well as meeting all international card payment industry standards through Mellon’s dedicated services to EFTPOS terminal software updates.

"The strategic partnership between Mellon Technologies, Ingenico Group and RBS enables retail businesses to minimize payment complexity and improve the overall shopping experience. What’s more, incorporating the advanced Ingenico smart terminals to the solution guaranties maximum speed, security and functionality when it comes to card payments,” commented Manos Perdikaris, Business Unit Manager at Mellon Technologies.

“We are very pleased by this new cooperation putting to the next level our strategic partnership with Mellon Group. Thanks to the integration of our innovative smart terminals with the new generation of RBS cash register systems, merchants take benefits of an optimized card & cash payment solution providing an improved consumer experience through speed of payment offering a simplified reporting on transactions to merchants,” said Luciano Cavazzana, Eastern Europe and Africa Managing Director, Ingenico Group.
