NCR’s Authentic Gets An Upgrade

Authentic has gotten even more real.

Consumer transaction technology business NCR Corp. announced yesterday (May 7) the release of the latest version of Authentic, its transaction processing software (the launch is specifically attributed to Alaric, which is an NCR company).

As explained in a press release, Authentic is an EFT authorization and routing system that’s designed to handle multiple channels across the payments space. The focal points of the newest version are integration — specifically as it relates to new payment methods into more standard payment systems — usability, and security.

The Authentic upgrade also includes a new browser-based POS and card management interface.

“We are committed to providing our customers with a modern, flexible payments infrastructure that will grow with them and enable them to respond to any demands the business places on them,” said Steve Nogalo, vice president and general manager of Payments Solutions at NCR, in the press release. “With the latest version of Authentic, we have incorporated the flexibility of the Google Web Toolkit, as well as providing new features and enhancements to further improve usability and flexibility. With Authentic we constantly strive to deliver a solution that our customers can rely on today and in the future – whatever the future may bring.”

According to the press release, performance tests have seen Authentic carry out more than 10,000 transactions per second.
