-- MinistryResource today announced its 36,000 customers now have access to discounted credit/debit, automated clearinghouse (ACH), and check payment solutions, including a mobile payment product, through the Association Partner Program for Sage Payment Solutions, the payments division for Sage North America. MinistryResource customers can choose from a range of Sage Payment Solutions products, including mobile and web-based solutions to help them process all payment types, in all environments, within Sage Exchange, a highly secure, integrated, Payment Card Industry (PCI) certified processing platform.
"MinistryResource is excited to partner with Sage to provide our customers with an all-inclusive payment solution program that can increase donations and giving while decreasing transaction percentages," says Mark Towell, president of MinistryResource. "Sage Payment Solutions also provides our customers with simple and affordable mobile solutions to make fundraisers, auctions, and other events easier and more effective."
Through Sage Exchange, MinistryResource customers can consolidate and manage all payment devices in one place through a web and mobile-accessible Sage Management Portal. MinistryResource customers can also automatically post and reconcile payment information to numerous accounting and ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems, including Sage 50-U.S. Edition (formerly Sage Peachtree). All MinistryResource customers working with Sage Payment Solutions will be assigned a dedicated Sage account executive and support center team members, as well as provided with education, training and project management to roll out their custom programs.
"Associations want to offer their members special benefits and services; that's why we designed this program," said Greg Hammermaster, president of Sage Payment Solutions. "Our payments products and services can help any small and midsized organization, like customers of MinistryResource, run faster, smarter and more cost-effectively."
Sage has been providing businesses and organizations with electronic payment systems for more than 20 years. Through its payments division, Sage Payment Solutions, the company allows more than 155,000 merchants to accept multiple forms of payment, including credit and debit cards, electronic checks, Check21, gift and loyalty cards and automatic recurring payment.
