Bookstore Manager will provide their Christian retailers the security, PCI scope reduction and brand protection of P2PE, backed by Bluefin payment processing
October 28, 2019 – Atlanta, GA and Abilene, TX – Bluefin, the leading provider of payment security technologies including PCI-validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) solutions for retail, hospitality, healthcare, and higher education, has announced a new partnership with Bookstore Manager for integrated payment processing capabilities backed by PCI-validated P2PE.
Bookstore Manager specializes in software and systems for Christian retailers, offering a variety of tools for independent and church bookstores. Their point-of-sale/inventory control software, Retail Management Solutions® (RMS), is offered in tiered versions – RMS 500, RMS Gold, and RMS Platinum – to meet the needs of all size stores. All versions are powered by the company’s Christian Books & More® database, the industry’s most accurate and comprehensive detailing of more than 300,000 products.
The Bluefin/Bookstore Manager offering secures credit and debit card transactions by encrypting all data within a PCI-approved point of entry device. This prevents clear-text cardholder data from being available within the device, or in the merchant’s system where exposure to malware is possible. Data decryption always occurs offsite in a Bluefin hardware security module (HSM), ensuring the highest level of security.
“As you can imagine, ‘computerizing’ your Christian bookstore is much more about the software than the hardware,” said Brent Casey, COO, Bookstore Manager. “PCI-validated P2PE will bring significant value to our independent and church bookstores by increasing payment security and decreasing costs thanks to reduced PCI scope, allowing for greater efficiencies and cost savings.”
Through the partnership, Bookstore Manager clients can get PCI-validated P2PE and integrated payment processing using Bluefin’s PayConex payment platform. PayConex integrates directly with Destiny One to process debit and credit payments, as well as provide tokenization and eCommerce and card present payment acceptance.
“Every industry is a prime hacker target because of the sheer amount of sensitive information being processed through the point of sale and databases,” said Greg Cornwell, Head of Global Sales, Bluefin. “We applaud Bookstore Manager for providing their clients with the gold standard of encryption, PCI-validated P2PE, while providing their base a convenient processing solution.”
