Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
ControlScan, the leading provider of PCI compliance and security solutions designed for small merchants and the ISOs and acquirers that serve them, has enhanced the company’s compliance tracking and reporting tool PCI Dashboard with SmartSync, an interface that feeds detailed merchant PCI compliance information into acquirers’ business systems.
ControlScan’s PCI Dashboard enables ISOs and acquirers to easily access the compliance status of their entire merchant portfolios in real-time as well as to pinpoint detailed merchant-level activity, such as the frequency and content of merchant support interactions with ControlScan support agents. The comprehensive reporting system keeps ISOs and acquirers informed of exactly how far their merchants, some considered “risky”, have progressed along the PCI compliance path. The addition of SmartSync enables acquirers to:
o Incorporate PCI compliance information directly into their merchant management systems;
o Customize specific PCI compliance data and reporting criteria;
o Facilitate merchant billing based on real-time merchant compliance status; and
o Manage internal PCI compliance programs by segmenting portfolios by risk to drive prioritization.
“We strive to continuously innovate for and with the help of our partners, giving them the best results and compliance rates from their PCI programs,” said Joan Herbig, chief executive officer of ControlScan. “SmartSync, a prime example of collaboration, provides the level of integration and robust reporting that many ISOs and acquirers are looking for today whether examining their portfolio as a whole or zeroing in on risky merchants.”
SmartSync also offers ISOs and acquirers a cost savings. In addition to better targeting and supporting merchants, SmartSync eliminates the need for costly in-house resources to extract, manipulate and manually manage PCI data.
