EMV Update

A new article has been posted on the TAM Retail blog by Bruce Lode:

Development is underway for EMV capabilities in TAM.   However, there is still much to do, not only for our developers, but also for the processors and middleware providers.  Devices and applications need to be certified, programming specifications need to be decided upon, and options need to be finalized.

In this month, our team received test devices from Mercury Payment Systems (MPS) and have begun processing test EMV cards in a lab environment, so steady progress continues toward the October 1, 2015 deadline.

My team also received a very informative and timely Acrobat file from MPS titled “Is EMV Right for My Business?”.  Even though this digital document is authored by MPS, the evaluation process illustrated applies to all merchants.  Whether your organization utilizes Mercury as a middleware or another middleware, you will find this informative as it covers:

  • General Information About EMV
  • Detail Information on How the EMV Liability Shift Affects Merchants
  • Three (3) Questions All Merchants Need to Evaluate Regarding the Shift
  • Ways to Learn More About EMV and the Liability

This is just another example of the many useful resources MPS provides us as developers and its merchants.  Keep watching The Assistant Manager blog as we will continue to update you on the progress.  Let us know if you have any questions and we will do our best to help!
