MagTek and DishOut Partner to Deliver Mobility Toolkit

Mobility toolkit provides easier integration for pay-at-the-table, pay-at-the-door, line-busting and loyalty/reward programs. Developer tools simplify mobile integration to existing POS and property management systems. 

Seal Beach, CA, August 7, 2017 – MagTek, Inc., the world’s leading supplier of secure payment technology and transaction web services, announces a partnership with DishOut, LLC, a payment technology company leading the way in mobile and stored-value programs, to offer a toolkit for faster mobile payment offerings.

DishOut offers a variety of easy application programming interfaces (APIs) for independent software vendors (ISVs) and merchants that work with existing POS and PMS to enable a suite of pay-on-the–go solutions and loyalty/reward programs. SlingShot, DishOut’s mobile-device ready application, utilizes MagTek’s secure hardware to accept masgtripe, EMV chip, NFC, or PIN debit payments. Optionally customers can use Magensa Payment Protection Gateway, a subsidiary of MagTek, where data is securely parsed, packed and sent where it needs to go for processing and/or loyalty/reward value added programs. With the addition of stored value functionality this becomes a very unique and powerful product.

As an example, hotels can have a roaming concierge check guests in while they are waiting in line while securely processing payments and communicating with the PMS system or  restaurants servers can take tableside orders as well as accept payments and incorporate loyalty and reward programs to the offering.

“Creating a solution combining MagTek’s and DishOut’s hardware, services, and developer tools delivers an innovative approach for pay-on-the-go mobility solutions,” said Rory Hersch, CEO of DishOut. “We couldn’t be more excited about this partnership. We are consistently hearing people tell us they need mobile payment solutions to help reduce their customer’s wait time, or offer their customers pay-at-the-table. Teaming up with MagTek to offer a simple toolkit will deliver that.”

MagTek offers readers with a recognized high first swipe read rate while providing access to SDKs and APIs to independent software vendors (ISVs) and value added resellers (VARs).  This streamlines the integration process, positioning MagTek as a sought after partner for those looking for mobile payment solutions, providing a fast path to market while easing the certification process and reducing overall cost.

“It is great working with DishOut to create a solution we can take to market that adds real value,” said John Arato, General Manager and Vice President of Retail Solutions. “This partnership makes it much easier for restaurants, retailers and hotels to introduce additional features to their existing POS/PMS systems with MagTek’s best-in-breed payment hardware and services.”
