ARKOS

Payment Acceptance Framework

Arkos is a universal payment acceptance framework.

Arkos simplifies secure electronic transactions acceptance whatever the context and the constraints (operational, environment, system architecture, platforms, devices).

Leveraging the Arkos framework allows Amadis to build any EMV L3 payment acceptation solution with a minimum number of adaptations, reducing costs and risks for clients.

The Arrkos framework conforms to nexo standards, ISO 20022 for card transactions, EMV, and payment networks specifications.
