Payments & Data Security

Get Paid Fast, On Your Own Terms

Squirrel POS systems support a comprehensive array of payment options, including EMV. If the freedom to switch processors to get lower transaction costs is important to you, Squirrel provides flexible solutions that will let you do just that.

“When we implemented EMV here at Togo’s, we were able to lean on the experience of Squirrel having implemented it in Canada for a long time…we were able to get it in a lot faster than a lot of other companies.”

Mike Pennington, Togo’s

EMV Payments

As a leader in Canada successfully implementing EMV for many years, you can trust in our platform. You can also leverage our knowledge to minimize the operational impact when using an EMV payment solution, making it easy for staff and guests alike.

EMV Expertise

Squirrel has deployed EMV solutions in the Canadian market since 2010 and is leveraging this expertise now that EMV has been mandated in the US.

Gateway Flexibility

Squirrel POS is certified with a number of payment gateways. By remaining payment gateway agnostic, you can choose the solution right for you.

Choice of Payment Devices

Depending on your needs, support for chip and PIN and chip and signature methods of verification is available along with wireless or wired devices and contactless payments.

Reduce PCI Scope

Squirrel has worked with our payment partners to architect a semi-integrated EMV solution in which card data is neither transmitted nor stored through the POS system, thus reducing PCI scope.

Data Security

As a Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council Participating Organization, Squirrel Systems is committed to continuously reviewing and implementing best practices in our POS software to help protect cardholder data.

Our software is validated to the PCI-DSS standard and no cardholder data is stored on Squirrel POS client terminals.

If you choose not to implement an EMV payment solution, note that using a PA-DSS validated application to process credit cards through the POS is just one requirement of your overall PCI DSS compliance obligations. If you need help achieving compliance and strengthening your network security, we can recommend a simplified, low cost set of tools.
