THE WOODLANDS, TX, Oct 23, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) --
Rogers Software and Republic Payment Systems today announced Rogers
Software and SuperSalon, its salon management software, have achieved
certification to integrate First Data's TransArmorÂ® data encryption
and tokenization solution into SuperSalon point-of-sale systems
across the U.S.
With more than 425,000 merchant outlets and more than one billion
transactions processed, TransArmorÂ® is the most readily available
card data solution in the marketplace today. It is a powerful,
multi-layered payment card security solution that combines the
flexibility of software or hardware-based encryption with
tokenization to help protect merchants and their customers from the
devastating consequences of a payment card data breach.
Republic Payment Systems, a First Data ISO, initiated the TransArmorÂ®
solution to Rogers Software and has been the pioneer instrumental in
their certification. "SuperSalon is the first salon management
software to achieve certification directly to the First Data Omaha
Platform. This coupled with implementation of TransArmorÂ® technology
through a magstripe reader was our ultimate goal," said Terry
McBurney, CEO, Republic Payment Systems. "Reaching this milestone is
a tremendous coup for SuperSalon and sets the bar in salon management
SuperSalon provides salons with an array of services like customer
management, employee scheduling, payroll, inventory, payment

"We continually seek strategic partnerships that further support our
family of SuperSalon users, and protecting cardholder payment data is
at the forefront of our overall strategy," said Matt Rogers, CEO,
Rogers Software. "The TransArmorÂ® solution not only provides a safe
and secure processing environment but when coupled with First Data's
processing platform, our customers' also gain much needed access to
real time transactional data. Two vital components salon operators
are now demanding".
"With TransArmor, we are able to provide salon owners with an added
level of security not-seen before in the marketplace," said Tim
Horton, vice president, RAS Security Products and Services, First
Data. "With more and more salons accepting electronic payments, it is
