Genius™ Customer Engagement Platform™ Will Be The Exclusive Integrated Payment System For Cougar Mountain Software Accounting Software
Boise, ID – May 1, 2014 -- This week, Cougar Mountain Software, the provider of Denali POS Accounting software, announced an increased level of partnership with Merchant Warehouse, a leading provider of payment technologies and merchant account services.
Before the announcement, Cougar Mountain Software offered customers Merchant Warehouse payment services as an affordable, effective payment processing solution. This week’s announcement identifies Merchant Warehouse as the exclusive provider of payment services for Cougar Mountain Software. It also reveals that Merchant Warehouse’s Genius™ Customer Engagement Platform™ has been fully integrated into Denali POS.
Cougar Mountain Software has been offering accounting, POS, Fund, and Payroll software for over 32 years and has thousands of customers across North America in a variety of different industries. This integration with Genius will give small to medium sized retailers the opportunity to participate in new and evolving payment processes. This will save them time and money, secure their customers’ credit card and payment information, and help them prepare for the 2015 EMV liability shift.
Chuck Gossett, CEO of Cougar Mountain Software, states, “Our flagship product, Denali, provides organizations with protection of their financial systems through robust security and secure audit trails. Genius’ secure payment processes allow us to extend even greater security to our POS customers because of its use of unified security through tokenization and encryption.”
Dave Haworth, EVP at Cougar Mountain Software, adds, “The integration of Genius, which is PA-DSS compliant, allows the POS system to be removed from the financial transaction. This reduces the risk of credit card theft or skimming thefts which we understand consumers are concerned about.”
Henry Helgeson, CEO of Merchant Warehouse, said, “Cougar Mountain Software’s 30-year track record and ability to deliver top-notch service to its retailers make it an exceptional partner for Merchant Warehouse. Genius will give Cougar Mountain merchants the ability to stay on top of innovations in the payment and loyalty landscape, helping them future-proof their businesses.”
In addition to heightened protection, Genius provides merchants with unprecedented flexibility and scalability to respond to market changes and customer preferences. Genius allows users to accept any kind of payment, discount, or loyalty program through a single transaction from one customer engagement device. This eliminates the need for time-intensive or expensive hardware updates. Merchants of all sizes will be able to respond to changes in an effective and timely manner. Designed to evolve with the payment landscape, the solution presents merchants with the opportunity to turn every transaction into an interaction through integrated commerce and marketing features, as well as seamlessly connect user preferences across every shopping channel.
