Pinnacle Palm POS™ Enhances Support for CFN Fleet Cards

ARLINGTON, Texas – January 14, 2014 – The Pinnacle Corporation announced today that Palm POS now supports a direct interface to the CFN payment network.  The new CFN Network Interface Module (NIM) enables Palm POS to more efficiently accept a variety of popular fleet cards for payment including Mannatec, Fuelman and Fleetwide cards,  both in the store and outside at the pump.  Pinnacle developed the new interface based on CFN’s latest v4.2 host interface specification which uses standard ISO 8583 commonly used in the payment industry.  The new NIM supports typical fleet card prompting and eliminates the legacy counter hardware at the store.

“We continually seek out new and enhanced payment alternatives for our retailers,” says Denise Lewis, Pinnacle POS Product Manager.  “Working with CFN to support a direct interface for these fleet cards was a great opportunity to offer more payment options.  We are especially pleased to introduce a software-based NIM solution rather than the legacy hardware-based interface commonly used for Mannatec cards.  Anytime we can integrate to the POS and remove hardware from the store we feel like retailers will see immediate value.”

The new CFN NIM has been certified and is now available from Pinnacle.
