Company CEO and compliance officer will also join panel discussions on building successful sales programs, security and compliance
BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Merchant Warehouse®, a premier provider of merchant accounts and credit card processing solutions, in partnership with CurveNorth, a software solutions company based in Orange County, Calif., announced today that it will introduce an online application process allowing agents to sign merchants up for accounts in real-time, without the hassle of paper faxes. CB App Express, powered by CurveNorth Merchant –Flo 2.0, will be demonstrated by Merchant Warehouse at its booth, No. 232, at the ETA Annual Meeting and Expo, May 10-12 in San Diego, Calif.
“As one of the first ISOs to provide this type of mobile solution, we feel it is important to develop tools that allow agents to continuously grow their portfolios and evolve with industry changes”
Through the demonstration, CB App Express will show agents in the field how to maximize their time when working with customers. The merchant simply completes the application online (currently iPad compatible), signs the document electronically and once the merchant confirms receipt of the completed application, it is submitted to be processed.
“As one of the first ISOs to provide this type of mobile solution, we feel it is important to develop tools that allow agents to continuously grow their portfolios and evolve with industry changes,” said Michael Gavin, VP of Third Party Sales at Merchant Warehouse. “The capability of performing face-to -face transactions out of the office gives agents another avenue to pursue business and allows them to be more flexible for merchants. CB App Express is a great addition to Merchant Warehouse’s collection of online business management tools and we are pleased to be able to offer this to agents.”
Along with the new product demo at the conference, Henry Helgeson, co-CEO of Merchant Warehouse will participate in a panel discussion offering insight into building a successful sales program. Helgeson will detail how using an ear-to-ear sales strategy has helped Merchant Warehouse create a sales program that grows year over year. Markiyan Malko, PCI security compliance officer at Merchant Warehouse, will also participate in a panel, prior to the event at ETA University, to discuss Level 4 merchant security and compliance. The interactive panel will explain PCI programs, strategies, challenges and approaches to rolling out an effective program.
