BLM Technologies Receives Certification for EMV Card Printer MaintenanceJune 27, 2017
Minneapolis, Minn. – June 27, 2017 – BLM Technologies, a leading single-source provider of digital signage, information technology services, and payment, transaction, and other financial institution hardware, today announced the addition of EMV card printer maintenance to its expansive list of certification credentials. EMV is a global standard developed for payment cards, payment terminals, and automated teller machines (ATMs) to ensure safe and secure transactions between chip-based payment cards and terminals. Card printers are used across a wide range of industries, including financial, retail, education, healthcare, corporations, government, and transportation.
The addition of Evolis EMV card printer maintenance certification allows BLM Technologies to serve as a single source for EMV card solutions that includes technology consultation and procurement, installation, support and now, maintenance.
“This isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution – and most companies don’t have the time or resources to research and source all the components necessary to provide highly reliable instant EMV card issuance capabilities,” notes Kevin Flaherty, CEO of BLM Technologies. “Our clients trust our ‘vendor neutral approach’ and rely on our expertise to deliver a complete, full-service EMV solution that fits their needs and provides the greatest value for their budget.”
BLM Technologies has long-standing partnerships with a variety of the industry’s top payment, transaction, and point-of-sale hardware vendors allowing the company to be highly selective in pairing financial institution clients with the right technologies.
“We hand-picked BLM Technologies to be a service provider for our EMV card printers due to the strength of their service organization,” states Xavier Ballarin, Sales & Marketing Director USA & Canada, at Evolis. “BLM has been providing exemplary service for payment and transaction hardware for 40 years. We can trust they will provide the level of service excellence we expect for our customers.”
EMV cards are now the global standard for credit cards using computer chips to authenticate and secure transactions. EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard, and Visa. Whether you know them as smart cards or chip cards, EMV cards store their data on integrated circuits and provide a one-time code at the point-of-sale that allows a payment to be made. No personal or card information is transferred.
BLM Technologies is experiencing a growing need for EMV card issuance capabilities across industries; including retail, healthcare, education, transportation, hospitality and government agencies.
“The market for instant EMV card issuance is experiencing double-digit growth”, comments Debbie Schwake, Vice President of Marketing for BLM. “BLM has responded with the right people, the right solutions, and the added assurance that their investment is backed by the most comprehensive depot repair program in the U.S. for equipment maintenance.”
The company offers authorized repair and maintenance services for major technology brands in three strategic locations to serve all time zones: Virginia, Minnesota, and California.
