Top Retail Management Platform Selects Merchant Warehouse as Integrated Payments Provider

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- Money20/20 -- Merchant Warehouse®, a leading innovator of payment technologies and merchant account services, today announced a partnership with Tomax, a top platform for omnichannel retail management. As a part of this partnership, Tomax is integrating the Merchant Warehouse Genius? Customer Engagement Platform? into its cloud-based Retail.net platform, which powers point of sale (POS) transactions for more than 15,000 specialty, general retail, grocery and pharmacy store locations nationwide.

"Tomax sees Merchant Warehouse's Genius platform as a disruptive payment solution, providing a single payment framework for omnichannel integration," said Eric Olafson, CEO of Tomax. "Payment terminals will play a major role in the future of the customer experience. The extensible architecture of the Genius platform will allow us to interact with the payment terminal dynamically to support new, innovative customer use cases."

With Genius, Retail.net customers gain a single solution for omnichannel payment management, with full support for EMV, NFC and leading mobile wallet options including Apple Pay?.

A PCI-compliant solution, Genius combines end-to-end encryption and tokenization to reduce the risk of security breaches.

"Tomax is an important partner for Merchant Warehouse. Both companies understand the importance of operating in the cloud, maintaining high security standards and preparing for the future, no matter what the payments landscape has to offer," said Henry Helgeson, CEO of Merchant Warehouse.
