The Problem

The MinuteKey team are pioneers in the unattended space and wanted to find new ways to secure and improve the payments experience for their merchants and customers. They came to Worldnet because they needed to migrate an existing estate of kiosks to EMV, they were facing constant billing issues and unnecessarily high PCI compliance fees.

The Solution

MinuteKEY replaced their legacy MSR readers with a secure fleet of unattended EMV certified Ingenico IUC285 devices. Our team of payment experts ran a seamless integration and were able to successfully migrate over 5,000 units within one month and without incident.

We also helped MinuteKey reduce their scope of PCI compliance and streamlined their MID application process through our partners at ISVPay.
