Pharmacy Podcast Episode 162 Credit Card Security Warning - with RMS

Interview with Pharmacy POS Solution Provider - President of Retail Management Solutions - Brad Jones on Credit Card Fraud prevention in your Independent Pharmacy. 

As the leader in pharmacy POS innovation, rest assured, RMS will have solutions in place to meet these requirements, due in October, 2015.  We are already completing a Peer-to-Peer (P2P), end to end, secure payment processing solution, and have been shipping signature pads that accept the new chip-and-pin, smart card technology that is required for this new security requirement.

I also urge you to download our ebook on Pharmacy Point-of-Sale Security by clicking the link below, to better understand how to ensure your pharmacy and its data is secure. 

More to come as regulations are continually changing, but I urge pharmacies to put this on their radar for next year, as I'm certain this will be a talking point in 2015.  

If you are already an RMS customer, you already know you are in good hands, and we will continue to communicate changes and updates as they occur.  We promise to keep you informed, and will let you know what, if anything, needs to occur, well before the October 2015 deadline.
