FreedomPay Puts Ben & Jerry's on Technology Fast Track

FreedomPay announced today that Ben & Jerry's, the iconic American ice cream company, is deploying the FreedomPay Commerce Platform across their domestic U.S. franchise scoop shop system, with their sights set on embracing current trends and accelerating innovation.

Ben & Jerry's produces a wide variety of super premium ice cream and ice cream novelties and distributes them through a network of scoop shops, supermarkets, grocery stores, convenience stores, and other venues. The company operates on a three-part mission statement that emphasizes product quality, economic reward, and a commitment to the communities in which it draws its support. Throughout its 35-year history, Ben & Jerry's has continually sought new ways to improve fan experiences and find new ways to interact with the enthusiastic fan community.

"In today's hyper-connected world, Ben and Jerry's is positioned to deliver simply the best user experience for their customers," says Tom Durovsik, CEO of FreedomPay.

The cloud-based FreedomPay Commerce Platform puts Ben & Jerry's on the fast track of technology innovation. FreedomPay delivers a high-performance, secure user experience driven from the cloud to any device, anytime, anywhere. The platform seamlessly bridges the gap across in-store, web, and mobile by interconnecting POS systems, transaction hosts, incentive engines, and other disparate systems to a cutting edge transaction superhighway.

On the security front, FreedomPay is an early leader in true Point to Point Encryption (P2PE) for MICROS point of sales systems including support for NFC, EMV, and magnetic stripe in a single solution. This advanced security layer gives Ben & Jerry's consumers the comfort of knowing their credit card details are being handled by the safest technology available.
