NAWBO® Partners with Sage to Offer Its Members Secure, Integrated and PCI Compliant Payments Services

(Washington, D.C., April 9, 2013) —The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) is proud to announce its members now have access to discounted credit/debit, automated clearinghouse (ACH) and check payment solutions through the Association Partner Program for Sage Payment Solutions, the payments division for Sage North America. More than 6,000 members can now choose from a range of Sage Payment Solutions products, including mobile and web-based solutions that help businesses process all payment types, in all environments, within Sage Exchange, a highly secure, integrated, Payment Card Industry (PCI) certified processing platform.

"Payment solutions are critical to the success of every business owner and NAWBO is excited to offer products and services from Sage at a specially discounted rate to our women business owners from across the United States," says NAWBO President and CEO Diane Tomb. "These allow for immediate business interactions from almost anywhere. They also expand our members’ sales channels and allow them to meet customers where they are."

Through Sage Exchange, NAWBO members can consolidate and manage all payment devices in one place through a web and mobile-accessible Sage Management Portal. NAWBO members can also automatically post and reconcile payments information to numerous accounting and ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems, including Sage 50-U.S. Edition (formerly Sage Peachtree). All NAWBO members working with Sage Payment Solutions will be assigned dedicated Sage account executive and support center team members, as well as provided with education, training and project management to roll out their custom programs.

"Associations want to offer their members special benefits and services, and that’s exactly why this program was designed," said Greg Hammermaster, president of Sage Payment Solutions. "Our payments products and services can help NAWBO members run their business and organizations faster, smarter and more cost-effectively."
