I Love Velvet, a global leader in secure, mobile Point-Of-Sale (mPOS) technology and solutions, announced today that they are officially PCI PTS Certified (approval number 4-80012), a major step beyond standard PCI compliance as it brings them to the highest level of industry standards for secure payment processing. Official PCI Certification requires extensive testing and approval as compared to standard “compliance” as is used by the majority of mPOS competitors, and required by any organizations or merchants that transmit or stores any credit or debit card holder data.
“We had already integrated advanced levels of payment security over our competition, and now to be officially certified is a complete affirmation of the level of security that our mPOS solution provides to customers,” commented Patrick Bouaziz, Chief Visionary Officer for I Love Velvet. “I Love Velvet is a leader in the mPOS industry and are gratified to see that all of our hard work is being recognized.”
I Love Velvet customers include some of the world’s largest retail and entertainment organizations, including a major global theme park, a premium coffee retailer and leading apparel and appliance retailers.
