The Element Express Processing Platform Recognized as a 2011 Best Channel Product By Business Solutions Magazine
On August 1, 2011, Element’s Element Express Processing Platform solution was selected by Business Solutions magazine as one of 2011’s Best Channel Products. Value Added Resellers (VARs) and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) participating in Business Solutions' annual survey ranked the Element Express Processing Platform as a leading payment processing technology, making it one of only three solutions in this category. Being honored with the 2011 Best Channel Products award makes this the fourth consecutive award for Element Payment Services from Business Solutions magazine since the survey debuted in January 2010. Element’s past awards include Best Channel Vendor in 2010 and 2011, and the Best Channel Product in 2010 and now in 2011.
The Element Express Processing Platform is a purpose-built payment engine, architected for an evolving industry with a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Using Element’s Web services or XML interface, ISVs can easily integrate software applications with Express, incorporating its robust suite of PCI compliant technologies, which include point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization. ISVs and merchants have long relied on Express to deliver innovation, reliability and simplified payment processing.
Business Solutions magazine partnered with Penn State University to conduct and analyze the survey of its subscribers. As part of the Web-based survey, VARs/ISVs were asked to rate a product’s richness of features/functionality, product reliability/durability, ease of integration, ease of upgrading and the VAR’s/ISV’s ability to service. The 2011 Best Channel Products recognition was given only to the top few vendors who scored highest in the product categories. This is a new format from years past where many products were selected for each category, making this award even more competitive.
1,490 VARs/ISVs participated in the survey, casting a total of 11,711 votes, making it one of the largest surveys of its kind, especially at this level of detail.
Receiving its fourth straight award from Business Solutions magazine is representative of Element’s dedication and commitment to providing its software partners and their customers with solutions that help reduce risk, liability, and cost, while easing the burden of PCI compliance.
