Powerful EMV-certified terminal supports Retail, Restaurant and Lodging segments

PHOENIX – January 31, 2017 – Equinox Payments (“Equinox”), a leading provider of payment terminals, applications and support services, today announced that POSDATA, a long time distributor of Equinox solutions for the retail market, has expanded its offering to include Equinox’s Apollo terminal targeted at the financial reseller market.

“As a long time distribution partner for Equinox Payments, we are excited to add the Apollo AIO countertop terminal to our product line,” said Bill McCubbins, POSDATA’s executive vice president. “POSDATA will deliver deployment services including product stocking and key injection to assure efficient distribution for the Equinox Payments’ reseller channel.”

“POSDATA plays a vital role in providing configuration, deployment and support services necessary to deliver our solutions to market,” said Rob Hayhow, vice president, Business Development at Equinox Payments. “Resellers supporting the retail, restaurant and lodging sectors can now source the Apollo terminal directly from POSDATA and configure it as a stand-alone or semi-integrated solution.”

An integrated PIN pad, printer and full-color signature capture touchscreen display eliminate the need for extra peripherals and cables.
