Phoenix, AZ (Vocus/PRWEB) December 29, 2010
Element Payment Services, a top 40 U.S. payment processor announces that it will provide PCI compliant processing for Rollins, Inc., a premier North American consumer and commercial services company and parent company of Orkin, HomeTeam Pest Defense, PCO Services, Western Pest Services, The Industrial Fumigant Company, Waltham Services and Crane Pest Control. Rollins will integrate its proprietary Focus business management software application with Element’s Express Processing Platform through Hosted Payments, the payment industry’s first solution to completely remove software applications from the scope of PCI DSS / PA-DSS compliance by eliminating the transmission and storage of cardholder data.
“We have elected to work with Element to process our payments due to their superior technology and commitment to the industry,” said Andy Smith, director of treasury, Rollins, Inc. “We are excited to have our locations work directly through Element’s Express Processing Platform, and expect the transition to be seamless.”
In addition to offering PCI compliance relief to Rollins, Hosted Payments will dramatically reduce the scope of PCI compliance for individual pest control companies within the brand, while maintaining the operational functionality required for running the businesses. Hosted Payments features tokenization technology, which allows merchants to securely access card data for future transactions, without assuming the risk and liability of storing sensitive information through a point of sale (POS) application. Rollins merchants can securely perform scheduled payments and card-on-file billing without compromising their customers’ sensitive information and their own PCI compliance.
“We’ve been working with Rollins’ merchants for some time now through our partnership with several industry-leading Independent Software Vendors in the pest control space. Through this integration, we will now be able to provide the entire Rollins corporation with PCI compliance relief and the most valuable payment processing available,” says Sean Kramer, president and CEO, Element Payment Services.
