February 4, 2016 (Edison, New Jersey) – TableSwipes, the developer of the Waiter Point of Sale solution design specifically for the restaurant industry, now supports EMV/Chip card pay-at-table thanks to its recently completed integration with Charge Anywhere’s EZ EMV℠ SDK for ISV’s and developers. The TableSwipes Waiter Apple iPad-based application now allows patrons to seamlessly pay with chip based payment cards, add a tip and close out the guest check right at the table. This fully certified Chip/EMV card solution improves payment card data security, reduces chargeback risks, supports PIN debit, reduces network exposure to PCI scans while expanding the protection to restaurant owners afforded under the EMV liability shift rules.
“The TableSwipes Waiter application enables orders table-side or on-line, communicates and prints the order in the kitchen, tracks the delay time and needed delivery time and processes all payments, removing points of friction from every step of the process. The business owner is provided with a customized and comprehensive set of reports detailing sales and delays to help manage the business.” Prem Babu, Founder of TableSwipes commented, “The integration with Charge Anywhere was completed in a few days and eliminated a lot of the expensive costs and long development cycles and the payment processor certification needed for implementing EMV payments. Our customers have been requesting chip card payment functionality and this EMV integration with Charge Anywhere has enabled us to bring the Waiter application to market much faster than we could have on our own”.
TableSwipes utilized Charge Anywhere’s free software development kit to complete the integration with a few hours of development work and with minimal EMV expertise. The Charge Anywhere EZ EMV SDK supports multiple EMV/Chip card integration methodologies for quick and efficient integration with native software applications using the Android®, iPhone® and Windows® Desktop operating systems. The TableSwipes Waiter application will use Bluetooth Chip card terminals provided by Charge Anywhere.
