NEWS: Payments Leader Intrix Technology Acquires Maas Global Solutions

Acquisition fuels Intrix’ strategic growth initiatives; adds Paymentsite Gateway products to Intrix payments offerings

 Roseville, CA, September 20, 2016Intrix Technology, Inc. (Intrix), a leading provider of payment processing services, announced today that it has acquired the assets of Maas Global Solutions (MGS) of Henderson, NV. Maas Global Solutions is a global transaction processing technology company that owns and operates Paymentsite, a cutting edge payments platform that includes end to end encryption and is certified for EMV (chip card) processing. The Paymentsite system is capable of processing more than 9 million transactions in a single day and is integrated with most US based processors.

The acquisition significantly enhances Intrix’ technology capabilities, merchant base and vertical reach. Maas Global’s strengths in technology-led distribution and experience in building a cutting-edge internet based payment processing infrastructure are highly complementary to Intrix’ investments in technology and innovation. Intrix expects to accelerate sales and revenue growth by combining the Paymentsite brand of products with its Intrix Payment Gateway, to create a distinctive set of solutions.

“This transaction marks a major milestone for the company, dramatically enhancing our presence in large and growing industry verticals including Property Management and Education and transforming Intrix into one of the leading providers of integrated payments technology solutions in the world,” said Jeffrey Connors, Chairman and CEO of Intrix. “By combining Maas Global’s distribution network and innovative payment solutions with Intrix’ technology platform and products, we are developing a payments eco-system that allows us to serve clients in new and exciting ways.”

Maas Global developed Paymentsite so resellers, agents and merchants could have a state of the art, secure and fully redundant connection from their servers to the major merchant processors. The platform supports full retail payment processing (with terminals available for retail environments), including PIN Debit, Level II/III data and tokenization of the payment details, as well as Direct Marketing/MOTO and eCommerce. It offers P2P terminal encryption support, EMV, fraud services, integrations and mobile apps for merchants for Android and iPhone, including swipe device support. It can also be white labeled for ISOs needing a gateway of their own. A variation of the Paymentsite platform is used in Brazil as the primary Brazilian payments gateway, processing credit card payments as well as bank drafts (a popular form of payments in that market).

Under the terms of the deal, Intrix will acquire Maas Global’s business assets and customer relationships, including strategic accounts in various sectors. Some Maas Global employees will also join Intrix.

In addition to directly serving merchants, Intrix provides agents with enhanced sales, marketing and processing functions to build their acquiring portfolio and provides ISV’s and VARS with integrated solutions.

Intrix Blog : TSG Releases Data: Which Types of Retail Merchants are EMV-Ready?

By Jeff Connors
Chief Executive Officer
October 1, 2015

Today is October 1, 2015. Are you EMV ready? Well, if you aren’t, you’re not alone!

The Strawhecker Group (TSG) recently released data ahead of the October 1st liability shift that represents EMV-readiness by merchant type. That data looked at a variety of retail merchants and shows that 69 percent of Shoe Stores and 59 percent of Department Stores have EMV-ready terminals, while on the lower end of the spectrum, only 23 percent of Stationary Stores and 24 percent of Book Stores have EMV-ready terminals.

TSG points out that certain retail types are more ready than others as they are much more likely to potentially see fraudulent transactions. Big box merchants, such as Walmart and Target for example, are ready.

To read more click here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20150929006599/en/Types-Retail-Merchants-EMV-Ready#.VgsG1PlViko.

TSG has also published a chart looking at 30 retail merchant types and their respective EMV-readiness: http://bit.ly/EMV-Retail

As of today, unprepared merchants will be liable for fraudulent transactions that occur at the point-of-sale. If you are unprepared Intrix can help you become EMV-ready, just give us a call at (855)-546-8749.

Intrix Blog: Yahoo Finance—“Credit Card Fraud Solution Coming to America…Finally”

By Jeff Connors
Chairman and CEO
July 6, 2015

There’s been a lot of buzz regarding the onset of EMV in the U.S. payments infrastructure. We’ve blogged about it several times recently in an effort to keep our merchants informed about chip-card technology—its benefits and what they will need to do to prepare. I just read a very interesting piece entitled “Credit Card Fraud Solution Coming to America…Finally” on Yahoo Finance. The piece, by Editor-at-Large Aaron Task, notes that the long list of retailers recently hacked—and the exposure of 90 million credit card accounts—has helped push the U.S. to chip-card technology.
He says, “The U.S. reliance on magnetic strips is a key reason why roughly 50% of credit card fraud happens in America even though only about 25% of all global credit card transactions occur here, The AP reports, citing Barclays.” He notes that widespread use of card-chip technology has been shown to reduce fraud by over 70% two years after adaptation.
And he goes on to point out that the cost of converting is a “bridge to mobile payments and mobile payments are a bridge to an even more secure system.”
To that, we’re in total agreement. Intrix embraces the move to chip-card technology as an added measure of security and protection for all of us in payments. If you’d like to learn more about how Intrix can help you prepare for the coming deadline, give us a call at (855)-546-8749.

Intrix Blog :TSG Survey – Just 34% of US Merchants will be EMV-ready by Oct. ’15

By Jeff Connors
Chairman and CEO
May 5, 2015

In one of our recent blogs, Senior Vice president of Sales Joe Radest talked about the market status of EMV and where we stand today. He noted that while the original plan was for widespread adoption of EMV by October 1, 2015, we at Intrix believe it certainly will not occur on that date.

Well, we’re not alone.

The Strawhecker Group (TSG) recently released survey results showing only 34 percent of US merchants will be EMV-ready by the October 2015 deadline, and just 53 percent of merchants are expected to be fully compliant by 2017 – more than 15 months after the deadline. TSG’s sample included 33 merchant acquirers that process payments for 2.16 million merchants, or approximately 25 percent of the U.S. market. See the Infographic below!

And if you’d like to learn more about EMV and how Intrix can help you prepare for the coming deadline, just give us a call at  (855) -546-8749.
