“InfoTouch is incredibly easy to use. At our busy casino gift store with six registers, this is very important to us. We love the integrated credit card processing – we don’t waste time or make mistakes by having to enter the sale amount on a separate credit card terminal. Best of all, the software is compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).”Don – Seven Cedars Casino
