Category 5 Technologies, Inc. announced it has entered into a credit card transaction processing account with First Data Corporation. The addition of First Data to the various payment processing platforms offered by Category 5 will enable Category 5 customers to benefit from a decentralized platform that is global and highly reliable.
Through its wholly-owned subsidiary ePenzio, Inc., Category 5’s bankcard processing relationships have expanded to now include this highly scalable platform, which will benefit current and prospective small- and medium-size business clients by allowing them access to more robust and international payment systems. Payment processing is one of several core product and service suites offered by Category 5. In addition to payment processing, Category 5 offers web design, web hosting, e-commerce technology such as shopping carts and payment plug-ins, and marketing and promotions software and services.
“Our new relationship with First Data allows us to further extend our service offering for our customers,” said William Gibbs, CEO of Category 5. “We identified that small- to medium-size enterprises need to be able to process transactions on multiple platforms, and followed through with a full-service package from the premier institution providing this service. We are very pleased with the addition of First Data, since this change allows us to meet the needs of customers who have either a terminal or processing gateway that is platform specific,” he added.
