Apriva, a leading provider of omnichannel payment solutions and secure mobile communications, and Parlevel Systems, an innovative leader for vending technology solutions, announced today the enhancement of Parlevel’s unique, one-stop-shop solution for vending operators through the support of campus cards. In this partnership with Apriva, Parlevel delivers a full range of versatile hardware, equipment financing, flexible payment processing, campus processing, and analytics tools—all powered by an easy-to-use vending management system (VMS) for the food and beverage industry.
Apriva’s robust gateway platform provides the unique opportunity to accept campus card payments everywhere, expand shared revenue and create a seamless shopping experience. Apriva’s Gateway offers state-of-the-art security with end-to-end encryption, tokenization and EMV capabilities, while connecting a variety of payment devices to over 30 processors accepting all major debit and credit cards, in addition to campus cards in both the U.S. and Canada.
Parlevel’s VMS includes tools like: remote machine monitoring through telemetry, intelligent route planning, prekitting, automated reconciliation, real-time inventory management, warehouse support with streamlined ordering and receivables, and product merchandising optimization. Parlevel also provides equipment financing options, many requiring no money down and fixed, affordable monthly payments. These flat-rate plans allow vendors the flexibility to keep more cash on hand for their business operations.
“We are pleased to have entered a partnership in 2016 with an industry leader such as Parlevel Systems,” said Stacey Finley Tappin, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Apriva. “By partnering with Parlevel, we are able to bring Apriva’s campus card processing capabilities to their vast customer base, and enable diverse payment options today and into the future. Parlevel vending operators can now accept Atrium, Blackboard, CBORD, Heartland and ITC Systems campus card solutions, in addition to our wide array of traditional payment card processors.”
With support for campus payments, Parlevel increases the versatility of their platform for vending operators—enabling them to take full control of their businesses and to grow in the simplest, most efficient way. “Parlevel strives to constantly create innovative solutions for the vending industry,” said Luis P. Gonzalez, chief executive officer at Parlevel Systems. “Apriva’s powerful gateway fits our customer focus perfectly, as it provides both the security and the flexibility vendors need as they expand their business into cashless, contactless, EMV and campus solution sets. At Parlevel, we pride ourselves on a future-focus, and Apriva’s payment platform aligns to that vision.”
