ACCEO and BDO IT Solutions team up to provide retailers using LS Retail a secure choice for encrypted EMV payment processing

Montreal, February 22, 2017 — ACCEO Solutions, a leader in payment solutions, and BDO IT Solutions, a leading provider of business software and technology solutions, have partnered to offer North American retailers a payment solution fully compatible with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and the LS NAV point-of-sale (POS) system.

BDO IT Solutions recently completed a successful integration and rollout of LS NAV at Mastermind Toys across 45 stores and 240 lanes nationwide. Mastermind Toys chose the ACCEO Tender Retail payment solution to support their Verifone VX820 PIN pads and route credit, debit, and Apple Pay® transactions directly to First Data, their payment processor. This solution included support for point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and EMV.

“Mastermind Toys selected ACCEO Tender Retail middleware because of the overall stability and ease of integration and implementation with virtually any front-end Windows-based point-of-sale application. Furthermore, the ACCEO Tender Retail application supported many of the current PIN pad technologies as well as offering support for ValueLink (gift card solution), making it relatively straight forward to integrate into the Mastermind Toys POS environment. Finally, since Mastermind Toys already had an affiliation with First Data (and ValueLink), the support for Verifone’s product line was readily available,” said Dave Marien, Vice President, Information Technology at Mastermind Toys.

By providing LS Retail POS retailers a choice of EMV payment processing, ACCEO and BDO IT Solutions give retailers the flexibility to select their preferred device and processor.

The ACCEO Tender Retail solution supports contact and contactless EMV payment, provides a fast and secure payment option to merchants, and protects cardholder data with point-to-point encryption (P2PE). Using contactless technology (NFC), the devices will also support digital wallets such as Apple Pay® and Samsung Pay®. ACCEO’s middleware software solution provides a “direct to the processor” approach, giving retailers the flexibility to choose the device and processor of their choice and bypass middlemen gateways for a quicker and more cost-effective method for payment processing.

BDO IT Solutions has extensive experience with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and LS NAV. By leveraging the Tender Retail platform and a proven solution and methodology, retailers get an integrated and secure payment system without introducing additional complexity to PCI compliance and certification.
