New KICTeam Product to Benefit All Merchants Using POS Terminals
AUBURN, Maine -- April 23, 2013 -- The challenge of properly cleaning the Europay-MasterCard-Visa (EMV) read pins within new EMV ready point of sale (POS) Card Reader Terminals, is now greatly reduced by a new product from KICTeam, the industry leading manufacturer of cleaning cards. This Universal Card Reader Cleaning Card featuring Waffletechnology has a unique patented design which engages the EMV read pins to easily, quickly and efficiently clean them without taking the terminal out of service. Studies on proper cleaning of POS terminals have shown that 80% of all devices sent for repair could have remained in service if cleaned.
