Semi-Integrated Solutions

Ingenico Group’s Telium Semi-Integrated (TSI) solution provides merchants with the most flexible and secure way to seamlessly migrate to EMV, protect cardholder data, and simplify PCI compliance. Ingenico Group’s processor and gateway agnostic solution routes sensitive data around a merchant’s electronic cash register (ECR) and back-office infrastructure, directly to the host. This secure, semi-integrated architecture enables retailers’ systems to quickly adapt to changing market needs, while simultaneously reducing costs and dependence on integration partners.

A flexible approach with two seamless options / Basic and Enterprise:

TSI Basic

Ingenico Group’s TSI Basic is designed for merchants, acquirers, independent software vendors (ISVs), or other system integrators who don’t require signature capture and/or forms management functionality (i.e. control over the on screen display and prompts). Our TSI Basic solution includes our core application with the additional ability to communicate with the ECR to pass non-sensitive commands such as transaction amount.

  • PCI Scope Reduction
    Merchants are seeking ways to simplify and reduce the scope of PCI security standards by reducing the footprint where cardholder data is located on their systems. Ingenico Group’s TSI Basic solution helps reduce this scope, thus lowering the cost of PCI compliance and increasing the chance of audit success.
  • Freedom to Update the POS
    Today’s merchants need to be agile, capable of responding to changing consumer demands. With our TSI Basic solution, merchants no longer need to be burdened and stuck with outdated systems. Now they can simply change and update their POS and backend systems without having to go through a recertification process.
  • Avoid Data Breaches
    With the various credit card data breaches in the news, merchants are looking for ways to reduce their vulnerability to hackers by keeping secure data out of their environment. Ingenico Group’s TSI Basic solution provides a semi-integrated architecture that helps protect sensitive cardholder data.
  • Reduce Certification Bottlenecks
    With the migration to EMV, every application, device, and combination of the two requires certification from the acquirer. For processors with hundreds of different ISV solution providers and multiple payment terminals, this can add up to thousands of different certifications, and months of work. Ingenico Group’s TSI Basic solution helps reduce these bottlenecks and enables faster speed to market.

TSI Enterprise

Ingenico Group’s TSI Enterprise gives ISVs and merchants complete control over the consumer experience by providing support for signature. By integrating with pre-certified POS solutions that route sensitive data around the electronic cash register (ECR) and back-office infrastructure, directly to the processor, the ECR is taken completely out of PCI scope. This secure, semi-integration model enables retailers’ systems to quickly adapt to changing market needs, while simultaneously reducing costs and reliance on integration partners.
