Boston, MA – November 14, 2012 – Merchant Warehouse, a leader and innovator in payment and program acceptance solutions and merchant account services, announces it ranked 468 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America.
Co-founder and CEO, Henry Helgeson credits Merchant Warehouse’s growth on the Company’s ability to accurately predict payment industry trends and capitalize on its forecasts by providing VARs and merchants with technology that not only fits their current needs, but is capable of adapting as business models and consumer behaviors change.

This effectively ends confusion by providing a payment agnostic option for merchants. For consumers, Genius provides highly-personalized customer interactions evolving mobile payments beyond a simple replacement for a card swipe through targeted offers and loyalty programs. Our future growth, and the growth of our customer-base, is tied to mobile payment technology. Merchant Warehouse will continue to take the lead in providing solutions that offer merchants flexibility in choice and can adjust to fit their growth rates.”
Merchant Warehouse’s Genius product family is at the core of the Company’s growth in 2012 and beyond.
