Squirrel Systems announced that it has entered into an integration partnership with Mercury Payment Systems.

The agreement will provide users of Squirrel Systems’ industry leading POS and management solutions with a wider range of choices for payment processing tools for credit, debit, EBT, check, gift card processing and loyalty programs. 

The ability to process payment transactions quickly, easily and securely is a key priority for hospitality industry organizations. To accommodate this need Squirrel Systems’ highly scalable and reliable SquirrelOne POS will now integrate with Mercury Payment Systems’ MercuryPay and MercuryGift. Users leveraging SquirrelOne and MercuryPay will be able to see their transaction speeds reduced to two-three seconds with cable or DSL Internet connections. The solution includes free gift card processing and will also help address payment security concerns as it is PCI compliant, meeting the compliance criteria of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard for all credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and JCB.

“Transaction processing has come a long way from its earliest days when customers would wait nearly five minutes per transaction. Today the pace of business in the hospitality industry demands that transactions take only seconds without compromising information security,” said Matt Taylor, vice president of sales, Mercury Payment Systems. “As a company driven by passion for technology and service excellence we’re thrilled to enter into a partnership with Squirrel Systems. Their dedication to providing restaurants, hotels and other food and beverage establishments with innovative technology and outstanding service shows a true commitment for meeting and exceeding customer needs.”

Customers leveraging Squirrel Systems technology with MercuryPay will also benefit from access to real-time Web reporting, which allows merchants to immediately check transactions online. This extends the wide range of real-time reporting tools within SquirrelOne, further helping customers to make more informed business decisions. Users will also be able to access such value added services as free gift card and loyalty processing through MercuryPay. Additionally, developers will benefit from the ease of integration of both the Squirrel Systems and Mercury Payment Systems products, helping reduce IT management time and costs. The new partnership also means that customers will be able to access Mercury Payment Systems’ free 24/7 live customer support all year round.

“It is of utmost importance to us to offer customers the flexibility to work with tools that best meet their needs, and as we have seen significant interest from our customers in Mercury Payment Systems technology the decision to enter into this partnership was easy,” said David Atkinson, vice president of marketing, Squirrel Systems. “We are delighted to be able to add Mercury Payment Systems to the list of our preferred vendors and to offer the benefits of their solutions to our customers.
