Wednesday 30 April 2014 00:39 CET | News

Viableware, US-based technology provider of the RAIL, a pay-at-the-table solution designed for full-service restaurants, has unveiled an updated version of its RAIL payment device that accommodates for the use of EMV smart card payments.

The enhanced RAIL device is engineered to accept chip-based payment card from the table and integrate with restaurant POS systems from MICROS, NCR Aloha, Squirrel and Dinerware.

EMV chip credit cards are embedded with a microchip and require a PIN and a signature to complete the transaction process. The EMV-enabled RAIL device is set to communicate with the chip inside the customer’s smart card to determine whether or not the card is authentic.

The RAIL is a handheld device that allows guests to self-swipe credit, debit or smart cards, auto-calculate the tip, split the bill in a number of ways, pay-by-item, and receive email receipts.

Dickie Brennan restaurants in New Orleans, including The Palace Café and Tableau, are among those to introduce the RAIL payment devices to their guests.

Sonny’s BBQ, a barbeque restaurant company, is piloting the enhanced RAIL payment device in select restaurants.

In October 2013, Viableware unveiled that PayPal payments were to be accepted on the RAIL payment platform, a mobile payment device that enables full-service restaurants to accept various forms of payment at the table.
