New Retail Realm and Banctek Connect Integration Increases Payment Protection for Microsoft Dynamics® Retail Solutions

Napa, CA, February 29, 2016 --( Retail Realm, a multinational retail-centric software developer and distributor, announces their new payments integration with Banctek Solutions, a leading merchant services and payment processing provider. The "Banctek Connect for Microsoft Dynamics" integration reinvents payment processing and integrates with Retail Realm’s entire product line, including Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS), Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail, "Retail Realm Essentials™ powered by Microsoft Dynamics" and also their new retail management solution launching in May 2016, Retail Management Hero™ (RMH).

As payment security has become a growing concern for retailers, Banctek Connect appeals especially to high-risk businesses (pawn shops, electronics, pharmacies, gun stores) who want to increase platform stability while also integrating with various card types.

"We believe payments have become a confusing, time consuming, and a stressful process for retailers, and are thereby reinventing it," said John Contogiannis, VP of Sales & Marketing, Banctek Solutions. "By joining forces with like-minded partners, we are able to provide retailers what they want-- secure and reliable technology, a smooth and simple process, flexibility, and effective support. Banctek‘s partnership with Retail Realm gives us the unique ability to offer integrated payment technology for Microsoft Dynamics products and a better experience to retailers in traditional verticals, as well as to retailers operating in verticals that may have been turned away by other processors."

Banctek Connect’s key features and functionality include:

Fully integrated EMV processing application for Microsoft Dynamics RMS on the TSYS Summit Platform
Instant device compatibility - plug and play for a growing list of POS peripherals
Cloud-based product management - Direct integration, no third-party gateways, all managed in the cloud
One integration, all card types-credit, PIN debit, gift (coming soon), PayPal, NFC-ApplePay, Google Wallet, SamsungPay
Secure Solution-P2PE, tokenization, and EMV
Clear customized pricing model

"We always want to give end users of the Microsoft Retail POS/management systems the best options for helping them streamline their operations and protect payments," said Rachel Smith, Retail Realm’s Director of Sales, North America. "One of the areas we have found to be most in demand is access to EMV compliant card processors. Banctek caught our eye as it also serves a niche market thereby adding to the range of verticals our solutions support."
