Index launch brings flexibility, reliability and security to in-store retail

Index said it has launched Index Semi-Integrated Payments for Verifone and Ingenico devices, and Index Hosted Gateway for First Data, Vantiv, Chase Paymentech and Worldpay.

These new offerings provide retailers with turnkey solutions for EMV, point-to-point encryption (P2PE), processing flexibility and value-added services including customer analytics and personalized marketing.

Index Semi-Integrated Payments routes payment data directly from the PIN pad to the processor, removing the POS from the critical path. Unlike traditional solutions that pass card data through the POS, Index enables the POS to fully delegate payment to the PIN pad. With Index, an IP-connected PIN pad collects tender, requests settlement, and returns a simple approval to the POS. Index PIN pad software drives the in-store user experience, and Index cloud services enable payment routing and a range of value-added services.

Based in San Francisco, Index is a leading retail software company that brings personalization and measurement to the offline world. Index powers lifelong customer relationships through actionable insights and relevant shopping experiences.
