with ultimate data breach protection

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lavu, a leading point-of-sale (POS) provider for the restaurant
industry, and CardConnect, a First Data Company, announced a partnership
allowing restaurants and bars to meet evolving business requirements
with integrated payment technologies.

Recently, Lavu integrated its leading mobile point-of-sale with
CardConnect’s platform powered by Bolt

LavuPay is transformative for customers that experience high processing
fees. The single source solution is built on developer-friendly APIs
making it easy to set up, features low processing rates, and includes
complete reporting that monitors the full transaction lifecycle in
real-time. LavuPay also provides customers with in-house support
available 24-7 to ensure they get the most from their investment.

aspect of their business within one, seamless platform. This partnership
takes our comprehensive system and adds secure payments, creating a huge
opportunity for customers to stop wasting time and money on an
additional payment processor. We are thrilled to deliver this solution
through our partnership with CardConnect,” said Saleem S. Khatri, Chief
Executive Officer of Lavu.

constantly seeking new ways to streamline and secure payments,” said Rob
