Verifone, the makers of PCCharge, announced back in April that they would end development and support of the product. Here’s what it all means for Sage 100 customers that are still using PCCharge.
No Longer PCI Compliant
First and foremost, PCCharge users will no longer be in compliance with PCI data security standards which can put you at risk for potential penalties.
Why the Change?
Because PCCharge software is installed on your in-house servers, all customer financial data is stored locally on your own internal hardware. This leaves you vulnerable to cyber-attacks and potentially liable for financial damages based on changes in regulation related to data security. Short of investing heavily to bring your technology up to data center levels, it’s impossible to remain PCI compliant on your own.
For many customers, American Payment Solutions is the natural transition. Running in the cloud, American Payment Solutions connects seamlessly with Sage 100. Plus, you don’t have to worry about PCI compliance because Sage handles it all and protects your business.
