Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) March 12, 2012
Financial Transaction Services (FTS), a full-service provider of electronic transaction services, announces its acquisition of Charge Card Systems, Inc. (CCS), a provider of electronic payment processing solutions based in Boca Raton, Fla.
Charge Card Systems was founded in 2003 by Anthony Andreozzi Sr., Bernard Shavitz, and Jeffrey Shavitz, all successful entrepreneurs, who have proven track records in building successful businesses across several industries. Since its inception, CCS has grown into a successful ISO providing electronic payment processing services nationwide by establishing a veteran and knowledgeable distribution channel. Their success was founded on building long-lasting relationships, and making sure clients understand all aspects of their merchant accounts.
With powerful online portfolio management tools and a leading edge agent center, FTS and CCS can now work together in order to provide the best service to their customers. “We are very excited that CCS will be joining the FTS family. Their in depth industry knowledge and state of the art technology will become a major asset to our agents and Merchants across the country,” said Jeff Shavitz, who will remain CEO of CCS. Adam Moss, VP of Sales, added, “We are looking forward to this new partnership” noting that “business with CCS will continue as usual with the same procedures and staff.”
President of FTS, Jeff Shanahan, agrees that the new partnership will provide benefits on both sides, stating “As one of First Data’s premier and fastest growing Independent Sales Organizations, CCS will provide FTS with another strategic distribution sales channel. We are looking forward to working with CCS and helping them continue to provide best in class merchant services.”
CCS will combine its sales and operational expertise with FTS, and will operate from its headquarters, located in Boca Raton, Fla. With thousands of clients processing billions of dollars annually, and an extensive network of sales-based referral channels, the partnership with CCS will provide FTS with a significant increase in annual sales volume and will add to the company’s highly effective executive sales team.
