Viableware's RAIL™ Certifies to Leading Payment Processors for Secure Transactions at Full-Service Restaurants

KIRKLAND, Wash. --(Business Wire)--

Viableware, innovators of the RAIL™ payment platform for full-service restaurants, today announced that the RAIL payment processing technology has been certified to the security standards of 11 of the leading payment processors that represent more than $1.6 trillion in combined credit, debit and prepaid card transactions annually in the United States.

The network of payment processors certifying the RAIL payment security technology includes American Express (News - Alert), First Data Merchant Services, Global Payments, Heartland, Merchant e-Solutions, Moneris, NOVA (Elavon), Paymentech, TSYS, Vantiv, and WorldPay.

"The certification of our payment platform s significant because it means full-service restaurant operators can rely on the RAIL for access to the payment industry's key processors," said Joe Snell, CEO of Viableware. "The RAIL platform serves as a turnkey payment processing technology for full-service restaurant operators looking to achieve PCI (News - Alert) compliance - and to provide guests with the assurance that all sensitive cardholder data is protected from the moment the card is swiped."

The RAIL payment platform seamlessly integrates with leading restaurant POS systems from MICROS, NCR Aloha, and Dinerware to securely accept payments at the table. The platform utilizes a fleet of handheld devices designed to replicate the look and feel of the traditional bill presentation folder used at most full-service restaurants - but unlike the original, the RAIL devices enable guests to self-swipe credit or debit cards, auto-calculate the tip, split the bill multiple ways, pay-by-item, and direct-email receipts.

In June, Viableware announced a partnership with Magtek to secure all transactions using the RAIL payment platform. The payment protection technology engineered by Magtek that is integrated within each RAIL device is PCI compliant and is able to instantly encrypt sensitive card data at the point of swipe by using a unique encryption key with every transaction.
