ADP Dealer Services and CenPOS, Inc. Enter Into Exclusive Strategic Integration Agreement to Provide Retail Electronic Payment Processing Services to Automotive Dealer Clients

Introduces Secure, End to-End Payment Solution, ADP ePayments

HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL–(Marketwired – Jan 6, 2014) – ADP Dealer Services, Inc., a division of ADP® and a leading global technology solutions provider dedicated to helping dealerships drive measurable results across every area of their operation, announced today an exclusive, strategic integration agreement with CenPOS, Inc. to provide ADP Drive Dealer Management System clients with a secure, end-to-end payments solution called ADP ePayments. The integration will revolutionize how dealers engage their customers, while also drastically reducing back office expenses — a crucial change given the forecasted rise of mobile transaction volume over the next five years.

“CenPOS will provide ADP dealers with a multi-channel payment solution that can help accelerate payment processes, increase customer enablement and reduce overall costs,” said Justin Sprague, Vice President of Product Marketing at ADP Dealer Services. “With an enhanced, cloud-based, intelligent payment solution, customers will be able to make payments any way, anytime, anywhere.”

The new, integrated solution will be test driven in the marketplace by Braman Cadillac, Miami, Fla. — one of the premier groups of luxury dealerships operating in Florida and Colorado. “CenPOS helped us automate our customer payment processes, decrease our interchange fees, and reduce the risk of fraudulent activity,” Omar Castillo, Controller of Braman Cadillac said. “ADP ePayments leverages the capabilities of both companies. The integration between ADP and CenPOS will allow our dealerships to focus on engaging with customers and creating a seamless consumer experience. Braman prides itself on delivering exceptional customer service and believes this innovation will help us take it to even higher levels.”

ePayments acts as a total payment solution for dealerships and their customers. For example, customers can pay an invoice online, or through the Service Advisor using a mobile device as part of the ADP ServiceEdge(SM) solution, and receive an email or text notification of the transaction. Dealers can also manage accounts payable and receivable electronically in their ADP Drive Dealer Management System.

By automating a variety of manual processes and reducing staffing requirements, ADP ePayments can help streamline workflows as well as improve dealership efficiencies and expense management — resulting in increased profitability.

ADP ePayments is being launched in response to key trends emerging in the marketplace that require a total payment solution:

  • Global mobile transaction volume and value is expected to average 35 percent annual growth in the next 5 years, according to Gartner, Inc.
  • Consumers expect payment flexibility, without waiting in lines — “shop anywhere” is the new norm
  • The widespread increase of data security breaches highlights the need for dealerships to have a secure payment solution that removes sensitive consumer information from their systems

“These trends are just a few examples of why dealers want to implement a mobile-driven, self-service payment solution that creates a frictionless buying experience for customers and staff alike,” said Christopher Justice, Chief Executive Officer of CenPOS. “ADP’s strategy of integrating its best-in-class applications with CenPOS’s intelligent payment services perfectly meets the growing consumer demand.”

ADP and CenPOS will showcase the new ADP ePayments solution at the NADA Convention & Expo on January 24-27 in New Orleans, LA.

CenPOS Leverages Ingenico’s Telium Technology at Automotive Dealerships Across the U.S.

Atlanta, GA., August 7, 2013–Ingenico (Euronext: FR0000125346–ING), a leading worldwide provider of payment solutions, today announced that CenPOS, a merchant-centric end-to-end payment gateway, has successfully certified and integrated Ingenico’s iSC250 multi-lane device to its secure cloud-based payment platform. This partnership empowers automotive dealerships and other specialty merchants nationwide to streamline their payment acceptance and increase profitability.

CenPOS’ intelligent payment platform drives the customer-facing Ingenico Telium devices to promote customer engagement by capturing debit PIN entry and securing electronic signatures that are stored on the merchant’s behalf. The combined system provides a positive experience at checkout by offering the convenience to pay with any form of payment, including EMV chip card, contactless, and NFC-enabled mobile devices. CenPOS also integrated the iSC250 devices to support their End-to-End Encryption (E2E) security solution, helping automotive dealerships reduce the cost and complexity involved in being PCI compliant.

“Our partnership with Ingenico is a perfect example of how secure and innovative POS technology can drive customer conversations and bring financial benefits to merchants in any vertical. Delivering the ability to steer the customer conversation towards the least costly payment methods while having the capability to capture and complete PIN Debit and signature-capture transactions, helps businesses save time and money, while improving their customer satisfaction,” said Christopher Justice, CEO of CenPOS. “For auto dealerships, and specialty merchants in particular, that traditionally store paper receipts and have limited debit acceptance capability, pairing CenPOS with the iSC250 multi-lane device is a significant boost in operational efficiency and customer engagement.”

Together the two companies have created a customer-centric, secure and scalable payment processing solution that can be effectively leveraged by CenPOS’ network of more than 1,200 automotive dealerships nationwide. The combined solution offers dealerships payment optimization with a reduced payment processing cost.

“Today, consumers are in more control than ever before. They expect a higher level of service and the ability to pay for purchases by whatever method is most convenient for them. Dealerships are challenged to select POS technologies that are both innovative and will maintain relevancy in the future,” said Scott Tubbs, Senior Vice President, Retail Sales for Ingenico, North America. “We are pleased that CenPOS has chosen our solution device with their payment processing platform, intending to use it to create efficiency for their customers through payment innovation.”

CenPOS has already successfully rolled out the iSC250 devices across multiple auto dealerships in the U.S. The company plans to add many more dealerships later this year.

CenPOS Automotive Dealership Transaction Experts at 2012 NADA

CenPOS Will Conduct Live Demos of their Payment Solutions Platform at NADA 2012 in Las Vegas

CenPOS, a payment processing technology provider will be conducting live demonstrations of their CenPOS Payment Solutions Platform at the 2012 NADA Convention to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada February 3-6th. The demos will take place at the company’s booth (#2890) twice daily at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

CenPOS provides innovative payment solutions to dealerships, whether a single dealership or a large multi-brand, multi-location dealership group. CenPOS has created a dynamic payment processing solution to meet the unique challenges of a dealership’s payment ecosystem.
Dealership groups have problems creating payment uniformity throughout their group due to inefficient, and often times costly legacy payment systems. CenPOS solves this by creating standardization across the group and eliminating inefficiencies.

“We encourage members of the trade media and dealership managers to stop by the booth and let our representatives show you what the CenPOS intelligent platform can do for your dealership,” said Jorge Fernandez, President & CEO, CenPOS.

The CenPOS intelligent payment network provides essential solutions for every department in the dealership:

Auto Parts

CenPOS Mobile Solution: Empower drivers on the road with smartphones to collect payments with signatures. Because CenPOS is an intelligent platform, anyone can accept payments without worry of errors. ( They do need to enter the correct sale amount!) The CenPOS mobile platform lowers costs associated with risk, exposure to chargebacks, and converts historically manually entered transactions into card present swiped transactions.
Tokenize payment information for repeat customers: Creates and electronically stores credit authorization forms. Mitigates PCI burden of storing traditional paper authorization forms, which contain sensitive cardholder data that is typically not stored properly.
Real-time AVS: Prevent fraud through the use of real-time AVS to reject transactions based on merchant specific risk parameters.

Auto Service

Increased pin-based debit conversion: Limits the dealership’s exposure to chargebacks, so customers cannot charge back on the basis of “services not rendered” or “not to satisfaction”. There is a 14 day window for customer disputes with pin debit vs 180 days for signature debit.

CenPOS Mobile Solution: Allows Service Advisors to be more hands-on with customers, handle the payment transaction and reduce the need for cashiers.
Interchange optimization: Properly qualify business, corporate and purchasing cards which can make up a bulk of service transactions. CenPOS can provide a savings of 60-95 basis points depending on card type.

Auto Sales / Finance

Collect quality data: CenPOS captures customer data at the point of sale that salespeople typically do not document, thus ensuring compliance and quality data collection.
Streamline and simplify check acceptance process: CenPOS dynamically routes check transactions to the appropriate vendor depending on routing rules determined by the dealership. Reduce the risk of losing a claim on a guaranteed check by ensuring the cashier provides all of the information specified by the provider.
