Product Technology and Partner Integration
At its simplest, technology is a means to secure and maintain business and do so in a profitable way. It sounds basic, but always remembering this helps focus on activities that drive business, reduce cost, and ultimately execute on our commitments to stakeholders.
2017 was an exciting year where we established and refined core products, built repeatable processes for continuous improvement and expansion of them, and positioned Sound Payments to scale and soar to great new heights. We introduced our semi-integrated, cloud-based solutions to Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), including innovative and cost-effective business solutions that help merchants on a day-to-day business.
In 2018 we will continue to seek out opportunities to leverage this core technology and grow our product suite both organically and inorganically through technology and service partnerships.
Some specific areas of focus are:
Product Expansion Highlights
- ISV – Pay at Table, Tablet POS product (ECR), Virtual POS, Recurring billing services.
- Petroleum – Migration solution for next wave of EMV
- Healthcare – Tighter integration with practice management systems
Ease and speed of integration
This is a key differentiator for Sound Payments. We will be expanding and improving our integration partner support tools to further improve time from initial engagement to live installations. This will include new and improved partner portals with technology partner specific content, samples, tutorials, and access to live support.
The product technology and integration support teams are looking forward to helping Sound Payments partners and clients soar this year.
