TNS and AJB Software Introduce Simplified Payments for Merchants
Oct 1 13
Large merchants across North America can now relieve the headache of operating a complex payments infrastructure while at the same time position themselves for future growth due to a new managed service solution from Transaction Network Services (TNS) and AJB Software (AJB). TNSPay Direct combines TNS and AJB's capabilities to create a solution that provides merchants with improved control, enhanced security and greater flexibility over their card present and card not present payments environment. TNSPay Direct provides access to a dedicated and fully managed AJB Retail Transaction Switch (RTS), applying geographically diverse active/active data centers and backed by an Service Level Agreement (SLA). All processing activity takes place within the TNS Secure Payment Network, including routing and connectivity to the processors and acquirers of the merchant's choice. Flexible options for point-to-point encryption and tokenization are pre-integrated with the RTS environment and aim to enable merchants to remove sensitive cardholder data from their environment. This improves security and reduces the scope of PCI compliance and audit activities, thereby resulting in reduced costs. Merchants can also select to use TNS' card not present payment gateway, in addition to securing connectivity between their data centers and the hosted platform. TNS manages the payment environment with 24x7x365 monitoring and fault management, software configurations and relevant updates.
