January 14, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
New York City, NY (January 14, 2013) – MagTek, Inc., a global leader in retail electronic payment security, today announced a strategic collaboration with SubtleData, the company that connects mobile technology to point of sale systems, to give retailers a completely integrated, secure card swipe solution for their mobile point of sale system.

At the National Retail Federation 102nd Annual Convention & EXPO MagTek and SubtleData will demonstrate how a MagTek iDynamo Secure Card Reader Authenticator (SCRA), when used with an iPad or iPhone integrated to the POS system by the SubtleData platform, enable retailers to expand their existing POS systems and create a secure mobile point of sale.

"Retailers want to engage with their customers throughout the entire retail environment," noted John Arato, vice president of MagTek's retail business unit. "Paramount to that goal is the ability to provide a secure mobile point of payment that's integrated with their POS system. MagTek is proud to collaborate with SubtleData to help retailers make their sales process mobile and build stronger customer relationships."

Together, MagTek and SubtleData allow retailers to easily move store employees from a static point of payment to a mobile process where they interact with the guest throughout purchase and payment, improving transaction times and increasing customer loyalty.

"As retailers embrace mobile POS solutions, they expect cutting edge security and outstanding quality from their magnetic stripe readers," said Bryan Menell, CEO at SubtleData. "MagTek provides that critical solution. We are excited to partner with MagTek to give retailers the tools necessary to thrive in the changing retail marketplace."
