EDI (Electronic Data Interchange)

Companies need data integration in order to drive their business. But keeping up with the constant growing number of data formats required to support the business has become a monumental task. When IT cannot support a data format, it risks becoming a roadblock to taking on new business. VAI provides direct integration with powerful EDI and data transformation solutions that can support any data format, without custom-coding each one, and allow companies to immediately share data and start doing business.

Payment Processing

S2K provides a standard interface to a leading payment gateway, which allows companies to consolidate all types of payment processing for wholesale, retail, and e-commerce in one payment solution. By leveraging the payment gateway cardholder data is never stored on your systems, and you reduce your PCI compliance scope. When a customer pays using an EMV-enabled device, the device is instantly identified as an authentic, approved payment instrument through a process called dynamic authentication. When used with a PIN, the chip proves that the customer is paying with his or her own card.
