Simplify Overview

Simplify® is a semi-integrated, payment application that resides on the payment device and ensures card holders and merchants experience a secure credit or debit payment transaction, using both magstripe and EMV chip enabled cards. Simplify securely encrypts card data (tapped, inserted, swiped or manually entered) at the Point of Interaction, and sends the encrypted transaction data to Elavon’s payment gateway (Fusebox) where a token for the payment card data is created.

Through the Simplify application programming interface (API), customers in the Retail, Healthcare, Hospitality and Service industries can easily isolate sensitive cardholder data from their Point-of-Sale (POS) or Property Management System (PMS), thereby eliminating or reducing the scope of PCI compliance audits. The Simplify solution offers the flexibility of a variety of PIN Transaction Security (PTS)-approved devices, from tethered to wireless, along with communication and connectivity modes ranging from RS232 through Wifi. This solution is also available as a full P2PE solution.
