Devices pose two challenges to developers who are creating consumer-facing point of sale (POS) or mobile applications.
The first is hardware integration. This is especially true if there are multiple form factors to be considered, such as the different types of devices used in stores, at trade shows, etc. Developers must learn the specs for any device that will be used and understand how to communicate with it. If different platforms will be involved (Android and iOS, for example), the code may have to be written in multiple languages.
The second challenge is data encryption. Many devices don’t have any form of encryption, and others may be using outdated encryption technology. In either case, the merchant, and by extension the software vendor, is at risk of becoming the victim of a data breach.
Base Commerce offers a “wrapper” (i.e., a development library for simplifying device connectivity) that provides code in a variety of languages. Using the wrapper, developers can integrate to a wide variety of device types on multiple platforms simply by inserting a line or two of code. Our solution covers mobile, POS, EMV, MICR (check reader), and check imaging.
As for data security, we have devices for any scenario in which a merchant accepts a check or card from a consumer, including POS, mobile, check scanning, check imaging, and a combination check reader and card reader. All of these devices utilize the industry standard Derived Unique Key Per Transaction (DUKPT) key management scheme. This industry standard for cryptography in hardware solutions produces a unique key each time the device is used, meaning if it is compromised, only one transaction is at risk.
How We're Different
What sets Base Commerce solutions apart is the enhanced productivity provided by our wrapper. Not only does it streamline device integration, it also accelerates time to market, which can make or break an application in today’s competitive business environment. In addition, by utilizing our hardware, software developers and merchants get significant PCI scope reduction and won’t be exposed to any unencrypted check or card payment credentials.
