Viableware's RAIL™ Certifies to Leading Payment Processors for Secure Transactions at Full-Service Restaurants
KIRKLAND, Wash. --(Business Wire)--
innovators of the RAIL™
payment platform for full-service restaurants, today announced that
the RAIL payment processing technology has been certified to the
security standards of 11 of the leading payment processors that
represent more than $1.6 trillion in combined credit, debit and prepaid
card transactions annually in the United States.
The network of payment processors certifying the RAIL payment security

Global Payments, Heartland, Merchant e-Solutions, Moneris, NOVA

Viableware. "The RAIL platform serves as a turnkey payment processing
technology for full-service restaurant operators looking to achieve PCI (News - Alert)
compliance - and to provide guests with the assurance that all sensitive

debit cards, auto-calculate the tip, split the bill multiple ways,
pay-by-item, and direct-email receipts.
