Ingenico Group’s iSC Touch 250 smart terminals provide seamless, secure payments for the leading bridal retailer in the United States

Atlanta, Ga.–January 15, 2018 –Ingenico Group (Euronext: FR0000125346 - ING), the global leader in seamless payment, and Aurus, Inc., a global leader in innovative payment solutions, today announced that David’s Bridal has deployed its point of sale (POS) terminals across 300+ retail locations in the U.S. to provide a secure and streamlined checkout experience for its customers.

Through its omni-channel payment partner, Aurus, David’s Bridal upgraded its payment solutions to Ingenico Group’s iSC Touch 250 smart terminals to deliver global tokenization support and EMV acceptance, enabling a simple and secure payment experience. The partnership also allows the bridal retailer to implement a multi-layered security strategy, including the use of point-to-point encryption (P2PE) to better secure customer data and reduce its PCI compliance scope.

Partnering with Ingenico Group and Aurus was an important decision, because their solutions enable us to streamline the entire payment acceptance process, which allows our in-store stylists to focus on what really matters – the customer,” said Michael Toth, SVP, CIO at David’s Bridal.

With Ingenico Group’s iSC Touch 250, David’s Bridal is able to accommodate all forms of payment including EMV chip & PIN, chip & sign, magstripe and NFC/contactless. It also supports newer options such as NFC loyalty, couponing, wallets and QR codes. The solution comes equipped with a durable signature capture for electronic payment acceptance, allowing consumers to verify payments in a safe, streamlined manner. Through the partnership with Aurus, David’s Bridal was also able to quickly deploy Ingenico Group’s smart terminals across its stores and shorten the sales cycle to enhance the overall in-store experience.

In a retail environment, it’s important that a payment solution is able to not only accept a variety of payments, but provide a superior experience for customers from the moment they walk into the store to when they make a purchase,” said Scott Tubbs, chief revenue officer for Ingenico Group, US. “We’re proud to work with Aurus to support David’s Bridal’s business growth and commitment to deliver the most secure payment experience possible for its customers.”

At Aurus, we strive to future proof the payments architecture so omni-channel retailers can have peace of mind that they are offering the most advanced payment solutions,” said Mustafa Shehabi, chief business development officer at Aurus, Inc. “Our partnership with Ingenico Group provides a single solution for retailers to securely manage their payments process both in-store and online. Our solution is changing the way our customers manage payments and related acceptance costs.”
