Boardman, OH (PRWEB) May 19, 2014
CBOSS, Inc., a recognized global technology and software developer leader, announced today it has been awarded a contract to provide secure online payment process solutions for various agencies, departments, commissions, offices and boards of the State of Minnesota, as well as its cooperative purchasing venture members.
CBOSS was selected following a highly competitive bid process, culminating in the awarding of a four-year contract to CBOSS. One of the company’s signature solutions is to enhance revenue cycle management through its automatic secure online payment processing and posting into the billing system.
“CBOSS is known for its expertise in the design and implementation of business process automation and secure e-payment solutions,” says Jenny Hammond, director of operations for CBOSS. “We are proud to welcome the State of Minnesota to our broad-based family of clients and this new contract expands our governmental portfolio.”
The contract is similar to CBOSS’ management of online payment processing for the State of Ohio that includes the processing of online payments for taxes, licenses and other regulatory applications for all state agencies. In addition, CBOSS has been providing online processing of all license plate renewals for the Bureau of Motor Vehicles for the State of Ohio since 2000.
“We are proud of our long-term business relationship with the State of Ohio, and now Minnesota benefits from our secure payment solutions,” adds Hammond. CBOSS, based in Boardman, Ohio, delivers results to a range of clients in 20 states, plus Latin America.
CBOSS’ Central Payment Portal (CPP) will provide assistance to the State of Minnesota in accepting credit card and other electronic financial transactions online as payment for a variety of services such as purchasing of permits and licenses, registrations and re-occurring monthly payments.
One of CBOSS’ major strengths is its specialized knowledge of the Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards. The major credit card issuers created PCI compliance standards to protect personal information and ensure security when transactions are processed using payment cards.
To be PCI compliant, certain standards must be met: maintain a secure network; protect cardholder data; maintain a Vulnerability Management Program; implement strong access control measures; regularly monitor and test networks; and maintain an information security policy.
CBOSS has three certifications focusing on Information Security:
- PCI DSS (for credit card data)
- SSAE 16 (for effectiveness of IT controls)
- ISO 27001 (for all areas of business data, IT security and operations)
From enterprise software solutions to managed services, CBOSS specializes in the design and implementation of portal solutions for e-payment processing, workflow automation and content management using industry-standard platforms and tools. Since 1994 over 700 businesses and government agencies have looked to CBOSS to deliver feature-rich services and solutions that are cost-effective, reliable and secure. CBOSS has renewed its Level I compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard, which provides the highest levels of security for e-commerce and other e-payment processing services. CBOSS also achieved a new certification in globally accepted international accounting standards, the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagement (SSAE) 16 Type II.
