Vagabond viv
Convenience service operators can wholesale products from their warehouse for consumers to order.
Vagabond announced the release of vīv Delivery, a targeted local commerce solution for route operators and their accounts. vīv Delivery adds new revenue streams while making operators the centerpiece of business in their local community.

vīv Delivery is based on the premise that operators in the convenience services industry should provide comprehensive market, breakroom and catering services to accounts and rightfully take a slice of the dollars spent on all products consumed in the workplace.

vīv Delivery allows consumers and businesses to order select items for delivery from their favorite local merchants while allowing merchants to offer product to consumers in a targeted manner.

AVI Foodsystems Inc., the Warren, Ohio based refreshment services provider, was able to secure customers' credit card payments using a PCI-validated P2PE solution, according to a recent report by Bluefin Payment Systems, a payment security service provider.

PCI validated P2PE is designed to secure credit card data through encryption in a PCI-approved P2PE payment terminal. Encrypting data within the device prevents clear-text cardholder data from reaching the POS system where it could be exposed in the event of a data breach.

AVI Foodsystems advised its payment processor, Nodus Technologies, that it wanted to adopt a PCI-validated P2PE solution to secure customers' credit card payments.
