fiskaltrust integrates Swissbit TSE into its fiscalization solution


Berlin, Germany. February 2, 2021fiskaltrust GmbH, a leading provider of end-to-end fiscalization solutions, is expanding its portfolio to include Swissbit's certified TSEs (Technical Security Devices). Effective immediately, fiskaltrust is offering the Swissbit TSE portfolio, consisting of single device, LAN and cloud solution, as part of its worry-free bundle as 'TSE-as-a-Service'. Cash register retailers and cash register operators can benefit from a robust combination of "fiskaltrust.Middleware" and a TSE solution that is suitable for all applications. As a result, fiskaltrust offers its customers greater independence in the rapid and secure implementation of the German Cash Register Security Ordinance. The deadline for the legally compliant conversion of cash registers and POS systems is March 31, 2021.

In addition to the license-free "fiskaltrust.Middleware", the product bundle 'fiskaltrust.Carefree with TSE' combines all the products required to fulfill the legal obligations (data backup or audit-proof archiving, reporting obligations for cash register operators) and is provided by fiskaltrust on an annual subscription basis. With the integration of Swissbit TSE as part of the bundle, cash register retailers now have even more options for selection and design. The flexible, scalable approach and the breadth of the single device, LAN or cloud solution allows the cash register provider to determine during roll-out which TSE variant is best suited for the operator. Depending on customer requirements, Swissbit's different TSE technologies can also be combined.

"Swissbit is a proven specialist for TSEs in Germany and we are pleased to now be able to offer our customers a comprehensive range of Swissbit TSE solutions. Thanks to the flexible choice between hardware or cloud variants, we can always deliver the optimal solution," comments Thomas Steininger, Managing Director of fiskaltrust.

"As a leading provider in the middleware market, fiskaltrust prioritizes customer focus to provide proven solutions and services for the fiscalization of cash register and recording systems. Our TSE solutions are perfectly positioned here, helping customers to meet the statutory obligations on time and with minimal effort," adds Hubertus Grobbel, Vice President Security Solutions at Swissbit.

Certified TSE solutions from Swissbit: modular, flexible and secure

Swissbit was the first manufacturer to receive TSE certification for storage solutions in Germany. With USB sticks, SD and microSD cards from Swissbit, almost any modern POS system can be easily and quickly retrofitted to meet the requirements of the German Cash Security Ordinance.

Networked POS systems can be efficiently retrofitted with a LAN solution. With this, different devices across entire locations, such as PC cash registers or tablets, can be retrofitted in compliance with the law without the need for hardware modifications of individual cash registers.

The Swissbit Cloud-TSE is especially suitable for companies wishing to connect their POS systems to the cloud now or in the future, without the need for hardware. For large retail chains with centrally controlled POS system infrastructures, for example, this cloud-connected solution can be especially beneficial.
