FrameReady® partners with Payment Logistics® to add EMV and NFC processing capabilities

SAN DIEGO, May 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Adatasol, Inc., one of Northeast Ohio’s fastest growing software firms and maker of FrameReady POS is pleased to announce the availability of an EMV-ready integrated payments solution. Under a strategic partnership with San Diego based Payment Logistics, Adatasol has incorporated Payment Logistics’ Paygistix® technology platform into their FrameReady POS software to handle payments made via smart cards and digital wallets, such as Apple Pay®.

“Paygistix not only shields our clients from liability associated with counterfeit card fraud, but it also minimizes the scope of PCI DSS compliance as if they were using a standalone credit card payment terminal. We’ve worked hard to make this a reality and are pleased to make this announcement today,” commented Dan Weiss, President of Adatasol.

FrameReady users who sign up for Payment Logistics’ services will be able to choose from a variety of EMV-ready payment devices, including a customer facing multi-lane terminal with signature capture, a compact Wi-Fi enabled terminal with built-in printer, and more traditional countertop devices.

“When you are working with a mature POS system, like FrameReady, that incorporates nearly 20 years of features and functionality, an off-the-shelf payment solution just doesn’t work. By working together with FrameReady’s team, we have been able to develop and customize our Paygistix solution to fit the unique needs of the many FrameReady users based in the US, Guam, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico,” stated Matt Bruno, Vice President of Strategic Sales at Payment Logistics.

American Banker Announces the NEXT 2021 Honorees, representing the future of leadership in financial services


NEW YORK, May 6, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — American Banker, Arizent’s essential resource for senior executives in banking and financial services, has announced the honorees of its third annual Most Powerful Women in Banking: NEXT program, highlighting 15 women who have demonstrated exceptional leadership over the past year.

The NEXT program celebrates women, ages 40 and under, whose achievements set them apart in their companies’ leadership pipelines. Among various qualifications, applicants must have an endorsement from a senior executive at their financial institutions and demonstrate C-suite potential to be considered for the list.

“All of the women on the list this year have been crisis-tested by a pandemic and social upheaval, and all have risen to the challenge,” said Bonnie McGeer, executive editor of American Banker and chair of the Most Powerful Women program.

  • Through the spike in prepaid card use caused by an unprecedented rise in unemployment payments, U.S. Bank’s Angela Ratliff tackled the accompanying growth in fraud so well her duties expanded to include handling disputes across other products.
  • One of Shaheena Khan’s employees was among the first at BMO Harris Bank to contract COVID-19, and her response became the playbook for the rest of the organization.
  • Five of the honorees are from community banks, reflecting the heightened importance such institutions took on during the crisis, particularly with helping small businesses get access to emergency financial aid through the Paycheck Protection Program. Among them are Candice Caruso at WSFS Bank, Tiffanie Horton at LINKBANK and Jennifer Reissman at Seacoast Bank.

“This next generation of women may be younger than those in our Most Powerful Women rankings, but I was blown away by how accomplished they are,” she added. “Their stories will inspire others across the industry.”

The complete list of honorees and their stories can be found at https://www.americanbanker.com/list/most-powerful-women-in-banking-next-2021

American Banker will recognize this year’s honorees through a unique virtual experience during its upcoming conference, NEXT: Sessions on Leadership (formerly known as LEAD), a three-day program gathering current and future change-makers to examine the most pressing issues facing industry executives, including the ways in which leadership needs to evolve to meet the challenges ahead. In addition to these banking leaders, the event will celebrate the NEXT honorees from the payments and insurance industries. The Digital Insurance honoree list will launch on May 10, 2021. The complete list of payments honorees can be found at


The NEXT virtual summit takes place May 18-20, 2021 and will feature senior thought leaders from Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, U.S. Bank, PNC Bank, Lincoln Financial Group, several community banks and many more. Additional information about the agenda, speakers and sponsors can be found at https://conference.americanbanker.com/NEXT

The NEXT initiative continues the mission of supporting, empowering, celebrating and advancing women in the financial services industry, while also being a part of American Banker’s continued coverage of the progress in diversity, equity and inclusion throughout the banking industry. Since 2001, American Banker’s Most Powerful Women in Banking and Finance ranking has recognized the professional achievements and influence of top-performing female executives in banking and financial services.
