PaylinX Corporation, the leader in the Enterprise Payment Server market, today announced an exclusive distribution agreement with El Segundo, Calif.-based Merisel, Inc., a leading distributor of computer hardware and software products. Under the terms of the agreement, Merisel will distribute the PaylinX Enterprise Payment Server software to its extensive network of North American Value-added Resellers (VARs) and System Integrators, enhancing its competitive e-commerce offering with PaylinX’s unique enterprise commerce payment processing platform.
The PaylinX solution set offered through Merisel includes PaylinX Enterprise Payment Server and PaylinX Internet Payment Server. Both offerings utilize three payment options — PaylinX VISA POS-port, PaylinX VISA ISDN, and PaylinX Paymentech Frame Relay. These options enable Merisel resellers to offer their customers cost-effective, e-commerce payment solutions.
Only PaylinX provides enterprise commerce payment processing — enabling credit card transaction processing that spans electronic commerce, point-of-sale, interactive voice response (IVR) systems, catalog sales and call centers. PaylinX recently was named the 1998 Call Center News Service Product of the Year, and is a three-time winner of the Internet Commerce Expo Best of Show award.
Merisel VARs and system integrators will find the PaylinX distribution agreement instrumental in expanding their options for e-commerce solutions. “Most first- and second-generation electronic commerce implementations focus entirely on the Internet, forcing those who provide solutions, such as Merisel’s resellers, to implement costly, redundant systems and processes,” said Bob Lozano, president and chief executive officer of PaylinX. “PaylinX enables market leaders such as AT&T, PageNet, Bose, Microsoft, and MediaOne to provide a uniform, enterprise-wide transaction infrastructure for all customer sales interactions.”
“We are delighted to make PaylinX available to our resellers,” said Merisel’s Director of Software, Tony Warwick. “As the market leader in the enterprise payment server category, PaylinX brings significant value-add to Merisel resellers and system integrators, not only for enterprise-wide payment processing, but also in consolidation with existing legacy systems. The enterprise payment server market is a key enabler of enterprise commerce — and we’re pleased to be at the forefront with PaylinX.”
In addition to its enterprise-wide capability, the PaylinX architecture meets the high availability objectives of the most demanding IT environments by enabling feature set enhancements such as multi-processor failover, Payment Pipes(TM) transaction routing and load balancing, while safeguarding existing infrastructure investments. Running on a single NT server, PaylinX Enterprise Payment Server software processes tens of thousands of transactions per hour. Lab tests extend that number to a processing capability that supports one million transactions per hour. PaylinX Enterprise Payment Server is a true multi-threaded solution for enterprise applications.
