Napa, CA, April 25, 2015 –(PR.com)– The annual Retail Realm Technology Conference (Four Seasons Hotel, Las Vegas 25-27 April 2015) marks a milestone in the special Mercury/Retail Realm relationship, in more ways than one. It is the fifth such conference and the fifth consecutive year that Mercury has lent its support by sponsoring the Welcome Reception on the opening night of the event (an evening which sets the scene for the work hard/play hard and the “you heard it here first” ambiance that has become synonymous with this unique meeting of the Microsoft Reseller Community in Retail. And there is yet another reason to celebrate. Retail Realm was notified earlier this week that it had achieved certification for its customer not present integration (i.e. sales order processing/web integration) for Mercury Payment Processing to Dynamics AX for Retail. Given that the new “Retail Realm Essentials™ powered by Microsoft Dynamics” retail management solution is based on the AX platform, you can take it as read that Retail Realm Essentials™ has been put through its paces and is also covered under the same certification.
“The special Mercury/Retail Realm partnership is the fruit of many years’ collaboration,” explains Afshin Alikhani, Chairman of Retail Realm. “Both companies share the same focus and philosophy; putting the Merchant at the center of every development we embark upon together. Whether it is the work we have completed together on RMS, Dynamics AX for Retail or the newest addition to Microsoft’s portfolio of retail business solutions, Retail Realm Essentials™, our goals are always the same: To achieve PCI compliance, ensure all end user payment pain points are addressed effectively and to add value so that our merchants‘ businesses flourish.”
Mercury has devised and implemented a special Retail Realm Partner program, over the years; positively impacting the bottom line and contributing to business growth for both end users and Retail Realm Partners alike; a win-win situation for all concerned. For the Retail Realm Reseller/Partner, Mercury provides leads, marketing support and training so that the Reseller/Partner is able to install and provide support to their merchants at a local level. (It is worthwhile noting too that, similarly, Mercury also positively embraces and encourages engagement with the Developer Community).
With the EMV liability switch date of 1st October looming, Mercury is hard at work alongside Retail Realm to ensure all bases are covered. The hardware device of choice for “Retail Realm Essentials™” is the VX 805 although multiple devices are, of course, supported.
It will certainly be worth your while stopping by the Mercury booth at the conference or, in the event you are unable to be in Las Vegas, contacting your Mercury agent or Retail Realm Partner Account Manager to find out more about bringing fast and secure payments to your merchants through the Mercury/Retail Realm Partner network.
