Countdown to Decertification for System Manager Pro

At the end of January, 2013, hundreds of Panasonic System Manager Pro (SMP) users are in for a rude awakening. This is when the SMP software will be decertified by their VisaNet processor. With the holidays coming fast, the waiting lists for installation at point of sale dealers are growing.

Time until Decertification:

Feb 1, 2013, SMP is now decertified!

Panasonic System Manager Pro users must act NOW or be kept from processing credit transactions at the end of January, 2013.

The Panasonic System Manager Pro point of sale software was sold into over 2500 reastaurants, representing almost every Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) brand. Unfortunately, the SMP software is vulnerable, not PCI compliant and Panasonic no longer supports this software. The SMP software had interfaces to both Merchant Link’s SiteNet and Southern DataComm’s Protobase. Southern DataComm is now called Elavon.

With the help of SMPLink™, System Manager Pro can be made PCI compliant. SMPLink™ is PCI-compliant credit card interface software developed specifically for Panasonic System Manager Pro (SMP) users that integrates seamlessly with Merchant Link’s TransactionVault® – a system that stores sensitive cardholder data in a secure vault – not on your back office computer. SMPLink™ from Bunt Software has been validated under the PCI PA-DSS v1.2 rules.

SMPLink™ has processed over 40 million transactions to date and has over 700 sites installed. SMPLink™ processes 2.75 Million PCI compliant credit transactions per month.

SMPLink™ is the ONLY PA-DSS compliant credit interface for the Panasonic System Manager Pro (SMP) pos system.
