Certified TSE solutions from Swissbit with direct connection to ‘MeinFiskal’ platform from DATEV

Berlin, Germany. November 3, 2020 – Swissbit, a leading provider of certified TSE (Technical Security Device) solutions, has partnered with IT service provider DATEV to offer its customers the perfect solution for tamper-proof recording and archiving of POS (Point of Sale) data. The certified (BSI TR-03153) single device and networked POS system TSE’s, as well as the recently certified Cloud TSE for online or cloud POS systems are now available with an easy connection to DATEV's cloud platform ‘MeinFiskal’. As a full-service provider of easy-to-integrate and secure TSE solutions, Swissbit enables POS manufacturers and system integrators maximum flexibility for all use cases.

For all types of applications, Swissbit offers easy-to-integrate, flexible and secure TSE solutions for single devices, networked POS systems in LAN configurations and online-capable POS systems with a cloud connection. POS manufacturers have access to convenient and standardized interfaces for Windows, Linux and Android with a pre-integrated connection to the cloud platform ‘MeinFiskal’ from DATEV.

"Swissbit is the first TSE solutions provider to offer all POS manufacturers a connection to the 'MeinFiskal' cloud platform from DATEV - a reliable and simple solution for POS data archiving and verification. It’s the ideal fiscal package for businesses", explains Hubertus Grobbel, Vice President Security Solutions at Swissbit.

‘MeinFiskal’ facilitates tax-compliant cash management

‘MeinFiskal’ has been developed as an open ecosystem for legally compliant cash management solutions. The core of the new platform is the already established solution "DATEV Kassenarchiv online", which ensures legally compliant and tamper-proof archiving of fiscal data from cash registers in the secure DATEV cloud. Among other things, intelligent check routines ensure that archived data is complete and has not been modified. "MeinFiskal" can offer cash register operators additional value-added services close to the cash register, such as compliance functions, data analyses, connection to follow-up processes or mandatory reporting of cash registers and technical security devices (TSE) to the tax authorities.

"DATEV’s 'MeinFiskal' cloud platform helps small and medium-sized businesses digitally process cash register data and meet all legal requirements for electronic cash registers. Swissbit has been involved in the platform from the very beginning," says Stefan Hummel, Product-Owner Accounting Vorsysteme, DATEV eG.

Certified TSE solutions from Swissbit: simple, flexible and secure

Swissbit was the first manufacturer to receive TSE certification for storage solutions in Germany. With USB sticks, SD memory cards and microSD memory cards from Swissbit, almost every modern POS system can be 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. In addition to a secure fiscal memory, which stores the automatically signed transactions, the Swissbit TSE also makes a user memory freely available to cash register manufacturers.

The new Swissbit Cloud TSE is particularly 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. For the first time, cloud-based cash registers are now supported.

Swissbit is pleased to offer the great customer benefits provided by the integration of the DATEV fiscal service.
