Genius is cloud-based, so new payment types, regulatory changes, industry updates and feature enhancements are seamlessly delivered to every one of you're Genius devices. That means no new code to write, no hardware to adjust, no hassles – no headaches.

Security & Fraud Prevention Keep cardholders' information confidential by never storing their data

Data breaches can happen anytime, anywhere. So take the first preventive step with Genius’ hacker-fighting technology. As a customer facing, EMV enabled solution, Genius utilizes tokenization and encryption to ensure customers' card data is safe, reducing the chance of security risks and fraud.

Multi-channel, Multi-location Tokens

Converts sensitive information to a token – merchants never handle customer data throughout online, in-store, and mobile transactions.


As soon as the credit card is swiped, confidential data is converted to indecipherable code for an added level of security.

Level 1 PCI Compliant

We are compliant to the highest levels of PCI and offer PCI support services (ControlScan and ASV)
