AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Starmount today announced that it has partnered with Servebase and
Ingenico to enable the company to deliver complete end-to-end solutions
that meet all requirements for EMV (Europay, Mastercard, Visa) payments.
The partnerships underscore Starmount's leadership role in the
transition to EMV and chip and pin technologies and will enable
Starmount to deploy its solutions for mobile selling and omni-channel
customer engagement in the UK and Europe. The end-to-end EMV solution

to accept EMV chip transactions or else assume liability for fraudulent

begin to focus on the UK and European markets and accelerate the
company's growth," said Greg Davis, vice president, product management,
Starmount. "By partnering with Servebase and Ingenico, Starmount is
aligning ourselves with best-in-class providers of payments solutions
with extensive experience in global markets."
"We are pleased to partner with Starmount in bringing innovative and
secure EMV-ready mobile payment solutions to the U.S. retailers," said

"The US shift to EMV is one of the most exciting developments in the
payments industry since the advent of mobile POS, and the partnership
with Starmount is an important step in ensuring that retailers are fully
compliant," said Melissa Law, product marketing director, Servebase.
Strmount will demonstrate its end-to-end EMV solutions, as well as the
new releases of Starmount Connect and Starmount Engage, at the NRF2014
