ATLANTA, Aug. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leader in electronic payment processing services, announced today that its proprietary payment gateway, Global Transport, was chosen as a winner of Business Solutions magazine's Best Channel Product. Winners of the award were chosen via a Web survey of the Value Added Reseller (VAR) community.
The Global Transport suite of products enables merchants, software developers, VARs and Original Equipment Manufacturers to use their Point-of-Sale (POS) applications to easily integrate with payment devices such as magnetic stripe readers, PCI-PED PIN pads, signature capture devices, and receipt printers.
A total of 16,656 votes were cast across 1,416 VAR subscribers of Business Solutions, making this the largest survey of its kind. VAR subscribers rated Global Transport as a top product for reliability and durability, and ease of integration in the Point of Sale Software/Payment Processing Solutions category.
"Utilizing Global Payments' Global Transport host platform was the easiest integration I've worked on in years and enabled us to extend the functionality of our eCommerce system both here in the U.S. and Canada," said David Dunaway, CEO for My Payment Network, an online payment services provider. "Global Payments' support personnel were always helpful and willing to go the extra mile to ensure our success," he said.
"Global Payments' Software Development Kit (SDK) for the Global Network product has allowed us a quick set up and easy integration into our custom products. With Global Payments as our partner, we spent less time navigating complicated integration methods and more time running our business," said Jeremy Mitchell, president and editor in chief of FoodConnect Inc., a Vancouver-based food marketing company. "We would highly recommend the Global Payments SDK to anyone who has the need for a custom Application Programming Interface (API) into their products."
"The acknowledgement from the VAR community is an affirmation of Global's strategy to simplify and speed integration to the merchant's payment acceptance environment. Global Payments is proud to receive this award and we will continue to develop products that offer more revenue generating opportunities for our worldwide partners," said Vice President of Corporate Product for Global Payments Inc., Sid Singh.
