AuthPay X 3.0 for Windows (Features & Compatibilities)
Since 1992, Parallel Software has been developing products on a full range of Windows platforms. We have been developing software for the First Data Payment Gateways since 2003, and for other hardware platforms such as IPad, Mac, and UNIX. This is the latest release within our AuthPay Express™ family of products. It represents the first ever EMV native application in the payments industry. We make each of our products easy to integrate to Rapid Connect. Value Proposition:
Our products are engineered so that any current merchant’s software can be reused without completely rewriting their application from scratch, but rather leveraging what they already own and extend the life of the product to take advantage of EMV native characteristics in our software. (See Bullet One below). This product is called AuthPayX EMV Inside™. The merchant's IT software asset extends its value with little reprogramming. If the merchant wants a rewrite of their software, we have a foundational product AuthPayX 3.0 for Windows™ that can be enhanced to the new needs of the market. (See bullet point two).
If a decision is arrived to integrate our AP3 EMV Inside Technology™ we will write the merchant's custom interface to allow the EMV Native capability of this product to be utilized with the least amount of disruption to the merchant's (ISV's or POS Reseller's) operation. They keep their interface intact we extend the life of their product.
If the merchant chooses to use our own Windows client interface. In other words, rewriting their product, then we recommend AuthPayX 3.0 for Windows. It features a native Windows™ look and feel GUI following the Windows User Interface guidelines specifications. Our product handles card present or card not present transactions. You can also submit transactions individually or in Automated Recurring Billing (hereinafter "ARB") mode. With this release, we offer Automated Recurring Billing with the Financial Profile Service.
