The MagTek DynaPro Mini leverages the MagneSafe™ Security Architecture and provides users with a card swipe, EMV reader, PIN entry keypad and card data tokenization solution with one swipe. Together, the MagTek DynaPro Mini and Northstar Order Entry provide an end-to-end secure system that greatly limits the scope of PCI for the NorthStar Order Entry platform, significantly reducing the risk of data breaches without compromising order speed.
NorthStar Order Entry, the hospitality industry’s first iPad ordering solution, has been a pioneering force in the POS space since its introduction in 2011. Its multi-channel approach was a quick favorite with restaurant operators as it consolidated many features within one platform including a traditional POS interface, a guest-facing ordering interface, kiosk ordering mode, and integrated web and mobile ordering. Utilizing the MagTek DynaPro Mini, Order Entry users will benefit from the security of MagTek’s innovative encryption, tokenization and card authentication technology with the flexibility of Bluetooth connectivity.
“The adoption of new technology required for PCI and EMV card acceptance, as well as the increased expectations from today’s restaurant patrons lends itself to the utilization of the DynaPro Mini with the NorthStar Order Entry software,” says John Arato, MagTek’s Vice President and General Manager for Retail Products. “The DynaPro Mini, suitable for both countertop and mobile solutions, is incredibly secure. It exceeds PCI PTS 3.x security requirements, but will also position the NorthStar Order Entry customer for the future with its EMV Smart Card acceptance.”
Art Julian, CEO of Custom Business Solutions added, “Consumers today are all too aware of the increasing data breaches that can lead to credit card fraud. MagTek’s technology would eliminate the risk of data being taken from the point of sale. For this reason we decided to use the MagTek DynaPro Mini with our Order Entry product. We wanted our customers to have 100% confidence in the security of their data so we partnered with the best in the industry to deliver top-tier protection now and in the future.”
