A Safer Swipe
ELIMINATE CREDIT CARD FRAUD AND ID THEFT FROM YOUR RESTAURANT, BAR, OR NIGHTCLUB
Every time a credit card leaves the hands of a patron, an opportunity for credit card fraud and ID theft is created. With Card at Table Service (CATS), smart magstripe reader units attached to the check folio, capture the patron’s credit card information at tableside, encrypt it, and transfer the data to the CATS touchscreen dock on the POS terminal where payment is authorized. Designed so that the customer’s credit card never has to leave the table, CATS eliminates the tableside security gap.
Not only is ID theft and credit card fraud a negative for customers, but also for business owners. A data breach can have a drastic effect, destroying the credibility of the establishment and potentially costing you loyal, repeat patrons. CATS keeps customers and business owners safe and secure by eliminating the threat of lost or stolen credit cards.
A disgruntled waitress is at the heart of a credit-card skimming scam that has affected at least nine customers of a Port Richey, Fla., eatery known as Mugs N Jugs.
