Vantiv Integrated Payments EMV and PCI Compliance

(This article is part of the general EMV and PCI Compliance article.  If you didn't get to this page from that article please click here.)
If you process credit cards from inside Atrex using Vantiv (formerly Mercury Payment Systems) the following questions are designed to help you determine how the US EMV change might affect you.
Do you process card present transactions (swipe physical cards)?
No, my company never processes card present transactions.
EMV doesn’t apply to you.  However PCI Compliance and credit card data security does.  As such, if you are using a version of Atrex older than version 14 you should consider upgrading to Atrex 16 in order to obtain the newest security features.  You should also switch to the newest Vantiv plug-in and make sure each system is assigned to a unique station number in the Credit Card Processing setup.  The new plug-in is available from your Client Center.
Yes, my company processes card present transactions.
Millennium Software, Inc. has developed a Vantiv EMV compliant plug-in that works with Atrex 16 and a supported EMV chip card reader.
To become EMV ready:
1) Upgrade to Atrex 17.
If you are a registered user of Atrex 17 or have an active subscription, Atrex 16 can be obtained from your Client Center.
If you are a registered user of Atrex 15 or older you will need to purchase an Atrex 17 subscription.  This can be done from your Client Center.
2) Install the newest Vantiv plug-in.
The new plug-in is available from your Client Center.
3) Purchase EMV chip card reader devices.
At this time there’s only one supported EMV chip card reader device and it’s only available for purchase from Millennium Software, Inc.
