PaylinX Corporation today announced availability of “PaylinX for Site Server,” a product that makes the PaylinX portfolio of enterprise payment servers readily available to Microsoft(R) Site Server, Enterprise Edition customers. PaylinX, a leader in payment server technology, fully embraces Microsoft’s Internet commerce strategy and is tightly integrated with Microsoft Site Server, a member of the Microsoft BackOffice(TM) family, allowing merchants to exploit future industry developments while protecting them from technological obsolescence.
The PaylinX payment server introduces a radically new approach for handling purchases from customers through the creation of a flexible, enterprise-wide resource servicing a diverse group of payment types, including VISA, MasterCard or American Express, corporate purchasing cards, and prepaid buying instruments. According to Bob Lozano, PaylinX president, “This approach is unique in its ability to simultaneously support real time transaction processing over the Internet along with handling call center agents, interactive voice response platforms and legacy billing/order-entry systems.”
Gordon Orr, retail systems product manager at Microsoft, said “PaylinX is very appealing to merchants since they are able to take a single, unified approach to processing payments from all their customers. Organizations will appreciate the way PaylinX simplifies operations and lowers costs. With PaylinX, Microsoft customers are able to use next-generation payment technology today.”
“PaylinX for Site Server” brings the benefits of PaylinX to merchants utilizing Microsoft Site Server. Easy to install, configure and operate, “PaylinX for Site Server” delivers the best in payment technology and enables a Site Server merchant to begin accepting payments the very first day of operation…straight out of the box.
PaylinX insulates merchants from changes in payment technology by continually incorporating the latest industry standards into the product’s framework. This ensures a logical migration path for PaylinX customers when new standards are adopted, optimally positioning them to exploit new opportunities. For example, a merchant committed to serving buyers via real- time Internet payment options can confidently launch his or her site today with PaylinX and industry-standard SSL encryption technology. Later, as SET becomes widely adopted, the merchant can smoothly segue with PaylinX SET support, minimizing disruption to systems or operations.
“PaylinX fully supports the Microsoft Internet Commerce strategy,” President Lozano added. “Teaming PaylinX with Microsoft Site Server and the Open Payment Architecture enables the merchant to take credit card payments immediately while laying the foundation for the migration to SET 1.0, 2.0, and other future developments.”
PaylinX levels the playing field for the merchant. By leveraging Payment Pipes(TM) technology, PaylinX secures flexibility in selecting credit card banking relationships…giving back much needed control and choices to those driving the business.
“Merchants are facing significant uncertainty,” Microsoft’s Orr pointed out. “The prospect of constant change in the technological and business landscapes further complicates the mix of sorting through tactical positioning issues. Microsoft is establishing a commerce strategy and delivering products to help merchants deal with that change. PaylinX has taken a similar approach in payment technology. Together, these platforms are a winning combination for merchants interested in the long-run.”
Lozano concluded, “Microsoft clearly understands that merchants want choices. The integration of PaylinX solutions with the Microsoft Site Server and BackOffice product family is a clear acknowledgment that payment servers are an excellent way to accept payments from customers and that PaylinX is the leader in payment servers.”
