BluePay Honored in First Annual TSG Gateway Awards for Onboarding Process

BluePay is proud to be honored by The Strawhecker Group in the 2017 Gateway Awards for the superior performance of the BluePay Gateway's onboarding process.

NAPERVILLE, IL, UNITED STATES, February 8, 2018 / — BluePay, a leading integrated payment technology and gateway provider, is proud to be honored by The Strawhecker Group (TSG) in the 2017 Gateway Awards for the superior performance of the BluePay Gateway's onboarding process.

Powered by TSG's Gateway Enterprise Metrics (GEM) tool, award recipients were benchmarked based on the merchant, developer, partner and consumer perspective. Current participants account for an estimated 50% of all payment gateway volume in the U.S.

Processing $21 billion in transaction volume annually and integrated with over 460 software platforms, the BluePay Gateway was recognized for its onboarding process based on numerous factors including access, documentation, ease of integration, test merchant account setup, certification, troubleshooting, and production launch. One of the ways BluePay accomplishes fast and simple onboarding is through an online lead form seamlessly integrated to the merchant online application, which also includes a short form version with "click to agree" functionality.

Additionally, BluePay's onboarding process is one of the value-adds for its growing channel of Independent Software Vendors (ISV) and Value Added Resellers (VAR).

Tim Trench, EVP of Product at BluePay, said, "We continually focus on expanding our product reach through payment integration with business management software in all verticals. We present our partners with the technology, support, and resources to control the entire payment acceptance process, beginning with onboarding. Whether opting for a basic lead form or a fully-customized application experience, efficient onboarding enables clients to begin accepting electronic payments as quickly as possible."

Trench added, "Winning an award for our onboarding process is a true testament to our commitment to providing a frictionless experience, and we are honored to be recognized by The Strawhecker Group for our accomplishments."
