OUR TEAM

At ACCEO Tender Retail, we specialize in the development and implementation of EMV-ready, PCI-DSS-compliant payment solutions. We design products that are easy to implement and that adapt to evolving needs. They suit small clients and very large chain retailers alike, and can handle a large volume of transactions.

We were the first in North America to adopt EMV standards and roll out a complete encryption solution for merchants in an integrated payment environment. Our expertise allows us to work with leading global payment companies on redefining payment standards.
