A semi-integrated payment solution
As a client of Elavon, and user of Converge, you can take advantage of semi-integration. So, what exactly is semi-integration? In its simplest form, semi-integration allows you to use a developer toolkit to integrate your electronic cash register with your point of sale terminal.
Why might you want something like this? Semi-integration is a timesaver. By integrating the cash register with your POS terminal, you don’t have to enter a transaction twice. Important information, such as invoice total, gets pushed from the software to the terminal. What this means is that your staff no longer need to manually key in invoice total – the software does it for you. Once the transaction is complete, the software captures the authorization number and posts it directly within the software. The best part is that it doesn’t break the PCI compliance bubble. The exchange of information is all done through a secure connection, letting you breathe a huge sigh of relief.
