CreditCall, a provider of EMV software and payment processing solutions for contact, contactless and mobile payments applications announced today that it has joined the EMV Academy, a U.S. based EMV training and consultancy organization.
EMV Academy will now feature CreditCall's EMV Level 2 Kernel products in all EMV Academy workshops.
CreditCall's EMV Level 2 Kernel products help card reader manufacturers and terminal integrators to quickly become EMV compliant. The company has more than 100 certified kernels to its name with more than 1 million kernels deployed worldwide during the past decade.
Since setting up its U.S. headquarters in New York City in 2005, the company has grown its footprint in the EMV arena, and also in the fast-growing unattended payments market, which encompasses kiosks, parking, ticketing and vending.
"CreditCall is an innovator in the world of EMV based payments and is quickly proving to be a great asset to the U.S. payments industry as it transitions to EMV," commented Stewart Chalmers, executive director of EMV Academy. "The addition of CreditCall to the EMV Academy fits perfectly with the Academy's goal to provide U.S. acquirers, issuers, merchants and others with the training and education they need to make the EMV migration seamless. Providing access to the best EMV technology is one key component to achieving that goal."
Said Jeremy Gumbley, CTO at CreditCall, "With more than a decade of EMV migration experience in the U.K., Russia, South America and Asia we are confident our expertise can contribute to the smooth and efficient move to EMV in America. The EMV Academy is the obvious partner to help drive the change through training, education and technology."
