Operators participating in NAMA Cashless Solutions, which designates BAMS as its preferred payment processor, can take advantage of exclusive rates NAMA has negotiated with BAMS specific to vending, coffee service and foodservice.
The program offers favorable rates for both wireless communications and cashless transaction processing. It can be configured as an extension of an installed remote monitoring system or as a standalone application.
The program also provides a networked end-to-end solution that is hardware-neutral and works with qualified communication suppliers and card associations for payment reconciliation and account management. NAMA is working to provide members with a broad range of preferential financial services.
Apriva is NAMA's preferred wireless gateway provider for the program. Its technology provides secure wireless processing between the vending machines and processing platforms. The program is also open to other PCI-compliant providers.
