MagTek Launches its Vendor Integration Partner (VIP) Program
Seal Beach, July 29, 2016 - MagTek, a global leader in payments security, is pleased to announce the launch of its Vendor Integration Partner (VIP) program. Armed with a core understanding of rapid technology shifts in the payment industry, MagTek created the VIP program to assist Software Vendors, System Integrators and Hardware Resellers in their efforts to rapidly deploy the latest MagTek Hardware and Magensa Services for reading, securing and processing EMV and secure magstripe payment transactions.
The VIP program provides a multitude of benefits, including free SDKs (with no license agreement fees) for the latest mobile and countertop payment devices. VIPs are matched with a dedicated MagTek Account Manager who will support development efforts, coordinate technical support and assist with sales and marketing strategies. They will also help navigate access to the MagTek Sales Organization, the Distribution and Partner channels, and the Magensa platform which offers a suite of payment protection services, a robust test environment, and many demo programs.
"The payments environment is constantly changing, and not always in predictable ways. From the introduction of EMV to disruptive mobile payment technologies, we recognize the wide-ranging needs of our customers," said John Arato, MagTek's Vice President and General Manager for Retail Solutions. "MagTek's Vendor Integration Partner program is our solution. If they're looking for an SDK or hoping to use a demo, VIPs only have to make one call, saving time that can be better spent growing their business."
MagTek's VIP program is the ideal solution to address the diverse, yet specific needs of Software System Integrators and Hardware Resellers. Whether looking for product development, technical support, or marketing strategy, VIPs become well equipped with easy to use tools to ensure their solutions will exceed customers' expectations. By streamlining, simplifying and quickly answering questions, the VIP program allows MagTek and its partners to strengthen relationships and introduce timely, secure and innovative payment solutions.
