Great Lakes Data Systems announced on Monday the successful integration of its WinCable subscriber management and billing system with the Ignite Payments credit card processing platform to provide cost-effective processing options to customers across the country.
The integration was completed using the GGe4, a processing gateway from First Data—of which Ignite is a wholly owned subsidiary. With the integration, GLDS will help operators minimize their credit card processing expenses and boost customer satisfaction.
“While GLDS has long offered multiple credit card processing channels, our support for the Ignite Payments solution was driven largely by a desire to bring more competitive options to the market,” GLDS President Garrick Russell said. “NCTC support for Ignite Payments made integrating with them a no-brainer. GLDS has invested considerable resources to ensure we provide our customers with efficient, cost effective ways of managing payment processing, and we’re proud to be working with Ignite Payments to help further that goal.”
GLDS provides small- to medium-sized operators with standalone and cloud-based billing, subscriber management, field management and provisioning software.
“We are excited about this partnership,” Ignite Payments agent Jerry Smith said. “We have been working towards it for some time. As one of the largest payment processors in the nation, Ignite Payments represents a number of associations and buying groups as a preferred vendor. NCTC has fully explored and tested our ability to deliver on our promises. Our desire to streamline payment processing for member companies in order to maximize efficiency and ultimately improve profitability creates a synergy between the three organizations, which transforms into a win-win-win for all stakeholders. We are very excited for the opportunity to demonstrate our gratitude through the superb service and savings for members which have made us a recognized leader in our industry.”
