AlfaPeople Partners with Shift4 to Bring Enhanced Security and Simplified PCI Compliance to Microsoft Dynamics AX Users

LAS VEGAS (Marketwired) Monday, June 17, 2013 – AlfaPeople, a premier Microsoft Dynamics AX reseller, and Shift4 Corporation, the world’s largest independent payment gateway, today announce a new partnership that pairs AlfaPeople’s retail expertise with Shift4’s industry-leading payment technologies.

“Shopping has evolved to become a truly multichannel experience for today’s shoppers who are digital, social, mobile, enabled, and informed,” said AlfaPeople’s Director of Sales Randy Cole. “We needed a payments solution that was flexible enough to meet our customers’ needs and secure enough to protect their brand and simplify their PCI-compliance efforts. With Shift4, we met both goals.”

Shift4’s DOLLARS ON THE NET® payment gateway supports a full integration to Microsoft Dynamics AX, and provides merchants the latest in card data security including Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) and Shift4’s TrueTokenization®, the most mature, reliable, and secure payment tokenization methodology on the market today.

Leveraging these technologies, retail merchants will have the ability to reduce their card data environment to the size of their swipe device. They can entirely remove their networks and back-office systems from the scope of their annual PCI assessments.

“AlfaPeople is all about empowering retail businesses to be agile and customer-centric, which is why this partnership is a perfect fit,” said Shift4 VP of Business Development Bob Lowe. “Our solutions provide additional flexibility to accept payments how and where business needs dictate, and simplify payment processing so that retailers have more time to focus on their customers.”

In addition to security, Shift4’s DOLLARS ON THE NET provides pre- and post-settlement auditing capabilities, fraud protection, and complete bank and processor neutrality – meaning merchants are free to change banks or processors as needed, with no risk of losing their transaction data and no interruption of service.

Merchants interested in this solution should contact Randy Cole at AlfaPeople by emailing crc@alfapeople.com.
