Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) November 09, 2012
Merchant Data Systems is rolling out the red carpet for Indiana businesses with their new Mergers & Acquisitions Partner Program. Operating a business today is difficult, to say the least. Rather than dealing with the grueling task of monthly processing of credit card customers, businesses are selling their ISO portfolios to MDS for cash. While this is a new idea for the state of Indiana, it has already proven to be successful for all parties involved in other states.
So what is MDS looking for in a company they are interested in doing business with? First of all, the company must be successful and bringing in a steady profit. This is not a venture to save a company that is in trouble and having financial problems. This is geared toward the company that is profitable just needs help with credit card processing. MDS teams up with a company and they allow their customer service staff to handle all the financial processing operations. This reduces the needed for employees to process credit cards, as well as allowing the owners to have some needed free-time from the financial aspects. This one area of business seems to be the most tedious, yet the most important.
MDS is one of the largest merchant acquirers in the entire country. They are profitable themselves and only want to do business with companies that can be a profitable venture. They pay fair market value for the acquisitions and are looking for a partnership that they can make about 20% from. There are many benefits to a joint venture with MDS. For starters, they handle all customer complaints, doubles charges and chargebacks that occur from the customer portfolio. Because they have a customer service center that is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week, they are always a phone call away. Their Miami, Florida headquarters is always eager and friendly and willing to help solve any merchant issues.
To sell a merchant portfolio is a big deal, but it is a wise financial decision. Not only does a company teaming up with MDS have financial help, but they have all the resources that MDS offers their customers at their disposal. Actually, MDS has been in business for more than 16 years and they have proven they are a customer service based company. They offer some of the best rates for credit card processing and superior services for their valued merchants.
What resources does MDS have? For one, accepting checks is still a method of payments for a lot of business. Unfortunately, most businesses constantly receive NSF checks. There is a way to stop all the NSF checks and MDS can help. By running a check through a check feeder, MDS’ system will verify the account is in good standing and the funds are available. They will then take the funds from this account and deposit them electronically into the merchant processing account. The whole process is similar to that of a credit card transaction, except it is done through checks. There are no trips to the bank and the check can be returned to the customer on the spot. This is just another way that MDS helps to ensure the company is making all payment methods available to their customers, but protecting the merchant at the same time.
MDS is all about merchant services and sales, but they want to form these ventures to strengthen the business core of America. The business owner does not need to sell their file and never see it again; they will still have a vested interest and can continue to add to the portfolio. Merchant portfolios are managed by MDS, but they still can be grown to increase revenues. The acquisitions don’t stop when MDS steps on board, they should increase. The owner of the business can spend more time getting new customers rather than processing credit cards and overseeing this department.
Many companies in Indiana may wonder why MDS would want to buy a merchant portfolio and the answer is easy. MDS is striving to help businesses to be successful and to strengthen our economy and to also build their customer base. With any joint venture, there is something to be gained from both parties, and this is no exception. MDS wants to make money, but they also want to give business the tools they need to succeed. They offer merchant cash advances through FAST CASH and they also offer the ability to process credit cards from any mobile location with a smartphone. For MDS, it is all about building a bigger and better business. While new in its inception, the Mergers & Acquisitions Partner Program is going to change the way people handle their ISO portfolio transactions.
