Data Breeches and Your POS

Many small merchants think that only large merchants have security breaches, but honestly, that is just not true. Small businesses are a substantial target for data breeches. As a First Data company, we take your security serious. First Data has partnered with TransArmor, a multi-layered security and compliance solution that helps merchants to protect their data, their customers and their brand. By offering Clover® to our clients, we know that your clients are protected too.

Clover has gone the extra mile to show that our advanced solutions are among the most secure in the industry. Clover Mini, Clover Mobile, and Clover Flex P2PE (point-to-point encryption) solution has been validated as a PCI Security Standards Council solution. This means Clover POS terminals along with First Data TransArmor have met comprehensive, rigorous, independent testing to validate our P2PE implementation. The strength of the Clover P2PE solution comes from its secure processor. ALL card data (swipe, dip, or tap) is immediately encrypted with TransArmor in the secure processor giving a distinct security advantage over software solutions. What does this mean for your business? That the card data never leaves the Clover terminal unencrypted – keeping you clientele safe!

Why Shopping Local Goes Further in the Long Run!

Did you know that Locally owned businesses pick the products they sell based on what they know you like and want? Local businesses carry a broader selection of exceptional products because they buy for their own individual markets. They have YOU in mind!

Each community has its own distinct personality and therefore shop accordingly. When you purchase online from a large retailer not in your area, it makes it harder for the local store to follow the local trends. Even the larger stores in the area are following local trends, so why not take advantage of the fact that you can walk in and check it out personally, before you buy? Overall you not only support a local shop owner, but you save money on high quality products picked with You in mind!

At Targeted Merchant Solutions, we get Shop Local. We work with our individual store owners to help them keep their POS purchases down so that they can pass the savings onto you. Not only do we help them with their purchase power, but we are there around the clock when their systems go down, they have a cc issue, or better yet, we can personally come to their store and make sure that everything is up to date and running smoothly. Bigger POS companies cannot do that. But we can! Because we have YOU in mind! From the shop owner to the local resident making purchases, we want your experience to be the best.

Contact us to learn more on how we can help your place of business better overall. We are more than a POS company! We are a small business just like YOU!
