GTL Launches New Government Payment Processing Station

Compact PPS-100 countertop unit allows corrections and government agencies with limited space to accept deposits and payments

Reston, Virginia (PRNewsWire) – May 20, 2016 – Global Tel*Link (GTL) , the leading provider of correctional technology solutions and an innovator in payment services solutions for government, today announced the release of the PPS-100. This new model of the GTL Payment Processing Station is designed for those customers needing a small-footprint device to process a variety of financial transactions quickly and securely.

“When deployed as part of a comprehensive payment services solution, the Payment Processing Station allows staff members to process credit and debit card transactions on a PCI-compliant countertop device,” said Ronny Park, Senior Vice President of Payment Services at GTL. “Our customers have expressed their desire for a compact unit that is simple to install and easy to use, and the PPS-100 fits the bill perfectly.”

The PPS-100 is flexibly configurable to meet a wide variety of requirements for credit and debit card payment processing. Customers can place the unit at their payment windows, booking areas, or any other location where they need to accept and process a payment from a range of major brand credit and debit cards using a lightning-fast processor with a specially designed interactive user interface.

“This new and enhanced PPS-100 terminal can be deployed in any area where a cash deposit is not required,” said Ron Meadows, Payment Services Product Manager. “It’s ideally suited for facilities or agencies with limited office space that doesn’t allow for placement of a full-size payment kiosk.”

For corrections customers, the PPS-100 can accept payments for trust or commissary fund deposits, phone deposits, and self-release. The unit also supports enhanced release card functionality. In the government market, the device can process court payments, probation and parole payments, utility payments, and general fines and fees.

Designed and engineered exclusively by GTL, the durable and rugged PPS-100 offers both a legacy swipe-style card reader as well as the new chip-style (EMV) card reader required by the payment card industry. As a PCI Level 1-compliant merchant, GTL built the PPS-100 to conform to stringent PCI standards. This versatile new unit also includes an integrated printer to produce detailed receipts, a barcode reader, and other features allowing it to meet a wide range of business requirements:

  • PIN pad and interactive interface
  • real-time account validation
  • on-demand electronic reporting
  • Linux-based OS supporting customer-tailored applications
  • interchangeable components for future upgrades

For more information on the PPS-100 and other offerings in GTL’s comprehensive payment services portfolio, please contact Ron Meadows at [email protected]. Demonstrations of the PPS-100 will be conducted in booth #407 at the American Jail Association’s 35th Annual Conference & Jail Expo in Austin, Texas, May 22-24.
