Apriva, LLC Key Developments

Apriva Enables Government Employees and Contractors to Access Sensitive Information on Tablets with New Bluetooth Smart Card Reader

Apriva announced the release of their BT200Z Bluetooth® Apriva Smart Card Reader (SCR) and support for Windows 8.1 64-bit OS based devices. The BT200Z smart card reader will maintain all the functionality of the BT200 and BT200-T and expands the use of the product to mobile tablets, enabling secure mobile communications from a new class of devices. Government smart cards, commonly referred to as Common Access Cards (CAC) and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards, are used to identify and authenticate government employees in US government agencies and many private industries doing business with the government. These cards can be used to connect to devices via portable readers to ensure security within these organizations. The Apriva Reader is a compact, wearable, wireless Bluetooth capable smart card reader which operates with a variety of devices, enabling secure PKI authentication for mobile government business communications. The BT200Z smart card reader comes with a three year warranty and supports Windows 8.1 64-bit devices. The reader will continue to support other operating systems including Windows Mobile® and BlackBerry® 4.x and 5.x. An Android SDK is also available to integrate the reader with Android device applications. The BT200Z will begin shipping in early second quarter of 2015 and replaces the existing BT200 and BT200-T versions of the smart card reader which will no longer be sold. Support for additional versions of Windows will be available later this year.

Apriva Offers New Analytics and Accessibility Features Within AprivaPay Plus

Apriva announced expanded features within AprivaPay Plus, its mobile point-of-sale (POS) software. Utilized by three of the nation's top five banks, AprivaPay Plus now delivers highly sophisticated analytics capabilities to brands, enhanced reporting features to merchants via an online web companion portal, iPhone 6/iOS8 compatibility and compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act regulations. Brands using AprivaPay Plus as a white-labeled application will now be able to access detailed anonymized analytics on their brand's user base including demographics, geo-location, user engagement statistics, device information and marketing data, allowing them to identify their precise user-base, tailor their application accordingly and drive future business via key performance indicators. AprivaPay Plus enables merchant services providers and financial institutions to deliver highly secure mobile payment acceptance applications to their customers that adhere to strict federal regulations, providing an added level of security and protection for both merchants and consumers. The application is available to both iOS and Android users and features a flexible design that allows the application to adjust for screen size, fitting seamlessly on the latest available devices. AprivaPay Plus now inter-connects with a comprehensive web portal that provides merchants with online tools for managing inventory, analyzing their sales and generating reports whether they operate via a single location or have multiple connections to a single account. In addition, AprivaPay Plus is the only mobile POS application that complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), allowing both banks and merchants to better serve the needs of customers with physical or visual impairments. People with visual, auditory, cognitive recognition, speech or physical special needs often have difficulty accessing popular applications due to the lack of support for assistive technology. ADA compliance is required for federally accredited institutions to provide Americans with disabilities the ability to navigate and utilize digital products and services deployed in the field. Websites or applications are considered "places that require public accommodation" according to the U.S. Department of Justice, falling under the purview of ADA title III. Organizations that fail to comply with ADA standards are being faced with an increasing amount of costly and time-consuming litigation. AprivaPay Plus is depended on by financial institutions and merchant services providers, including three of the nation's top five banks, transforming iOS and Android smartphones and tablets into mobile POS terminals. The application allows merchants to securely process card-based payments, check transactions, and cash-based sales at any time, from anywhere. With the latest release, AprivaPay Plus v3.0 introduced a number of advanced features that are designed to serve the sophisticated needs of merchants, including: Compatibility with iOS 8 and iPhone 6. Multilingual interfaces for Spanish and French-speaking merchants. Integration with Apriva Merchant Portal, an intuitive web companion management suite. Full compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations. Multi-payment support for credit, debit, cash, and check recording. Enhanced analytics and reporting tools for branded white-label customers. Push notifications of transaction activity. Round the clock customer support.

Apriva and GoCoin Drive Innovation in Payments with New Strategic Partnership

Apriva’s Gateway provides superior connectivity between payment devices, merchant acquirers and payment processors allowing merchants to accept secure card payments on dial, IP and wireless terminals, mobile devices, vending machines, and kiosks.

Through this partnership with GoCoin, Apriva’s Gateway will support digital currency processing for future purchases.
