Cayan Announces Partnership with Blue Sage Software

Genius® Platform Integrates with PaceSetter™ Solution for Fast, Flexible and Secure EMV Transactions 

Blue Sage Software, a leading provider of software to the automotive aftermarket, today announced their latest integration to Cayan’s Genius Platform, a cloud-based payments solution that mitigates the business challenges associated with integrating payment to the point-of-sale (POS). As a result of this partnership, users of Blue Sage’s PaceSetter™ solution will be able to provide customers with a faster, more flexible and engaging EMV payment processing solution at the point-of-sale.

“With our Genius platform and ChipIQ™ technology now fully integrated into PaceSetter, merchants can accept secure EMV transactions in under 4 seconds today,” explained Henry Helgeson, CEO and co-founder of Cayan. “It works with every card brand and requires no software upgrades or additional testing for the merchant.”

With nearly 600 million chip cards in U.S. consumers’ wallets today, the ability to swiftly and securely process EMV chip and signature transactions is essential for every business. By partnering with Cayan, Blue Sage is not only helping merchants accept this payment type, but also build customer confidence, relieve liability for chargebacks, and protect against the rapid increase of fraud. The Genius platform integration with PaceSetter will provide merchants with:

  • Real-time updates: Genius will now update your GL and payments to your customer accounts – no more manual entries at the end of the day.
  • EMV speed: Cayan’s ChipIQ™ technology achieves lightning-fast EMV processing times of just 3.66 seconds.
  • Security: Genius keeps sensitive customer data off your POS and reduces your PCI compliance overhead.
  • Integration: Genius’ integration provides seamless centralized reporting and lessens errors in credit card input. The platform eliminates the need for double data entry and accepts multiple-tender transactions.
  • Versatility:Genius uses a Verifone terminal that accepts all payment types, including Apple Pay, Google Wallet, Samsung Pay and anything that comes next.

“At Blue Sage, we’re driven by providing our customers with the most state-of-the art business solutions to apply and accept payments,” said Roger Moyers, President of Blue Sage Software. “With Cayan’s Genius platform, our customers can leverage an easy application and setup process that is integrated right inside their PaceSetter solution and experience all the benefits of an integrated payment processing solution.”

From now through September 15, 2016, customers who sign up for the Blue Sage/Cayan Genius solution will receive $100 off each of the next two months of their Blue Sage support bill. To learn more about the Cayan Genius integration, visit this link.
