New Ingram Micro Key Injection Services Offer to Speed Sales Cycle by Delivering Complete, EMV-Compliant Solutions

The distributor’s new software and key encryption data capabilities aim to help channel partners more easily address the growing demand for “chip and pin” solutions.

Ingram Micro Inc. has expanded its EMV (Europay, Mastercard, and Visa) compliant solutions by adding the ability to load new software and secure key encryption data directly to payment terminals and devices on behalf of its channel partners. To help further demonstrate its expertise in “chip and pin” solutions, the distributor has passed the electronic payment industry’s PCI PIN Security Requirements and Accredited Standards Committee’s TR-39 audit. With these new services and authorizations, Ingram Micro is able to provide key injection services in-house at a secure facility within its distribution center.

“Education and training around the sales opportunity and EMV mandate are essential, but when it comes time to take action, channel partners need a distribution partner who is able to deliver a complete, EMV-ready solutions that include the right software, secure key injection services and field support,” says Jeff Yelton, executive director, Ingram Micro.

To help simplify the sales cycle and increase profitability, Ingram Micro partners also have access to the “Electronic Payments Playbook” and multi-vendor solution bundles which include start-to-finish professional services from assessment and deployment to equipment disposal, solution testing, and certification audits.

The global EMV payment standard requires all retailers and other businesses that accept credit and debit cards to become compliant by Oct. 15, 2015. Failure to comply with the mandate will leave businesses open to liability in the event of fraud and potentially face heavy financial losses.
