Our Client’s Problem

Partnering with multiple third-party providers to process payments through its platform presented three key problems for a Midwestern software provider.

  1. A multi-partner environment was too resource-consuming and costly to maintain.
  2. It could not control the quality of support delivered to its customers.
  3. It could not control the pricing delivered to its customers.

This software platform provider made the strategic decision to shift to a “white-label” payment environment. A pilot program was created with a third-party provider, and unfortunately, it all unraveled from there. The pilot program was marred with poor service and consistent overbilling – two major contributors to a poor customer experience. To make the situation worse, the current partner did nothing to address potential data security issues. This meant the majority of customers were operating in a vulnerable payment environment. Clearly a change needed to be made. Still confident in its white-label strategy, this software platform provider turned to Wind River Financial for a new solution.

OVERVIEW
Dilemma

A Midwest-based software platform provider had been in the throes of an unsuccessful white-label payments pilot yielding consistently poor service and overbilling. Additionally, due to its partner’s seeming lack of attention to security, many customers were left to operate in a vulnerable payments environment.

2. Provide accurate and consistent pricing
3. Ensure a secure payment environment for all customers

Reboot the white-label payment program with a different partner that was service-focused and attentive to security.

2. 400% increase in payment revenue
3. 100% of project costs recouped in one year
