Posted on April 15, 2020Partnership Enables In-Store Credit Card Processing for Pawnbrokers, Reducing Manual Work and Streamlining Operations.
Bravo Pawn Systems, the leading point-of-sale software platform for pawnbrokers, and BLUEDOG, an industry-leading payment solution provider for merchants, today announce a strategic partnership.
The new partnership promises ease of use, increased efficiencies and enhanced employee and customer experiences with respect to collecting, processing and reconciling in-store credit card payments. A key highlight of the partnership is the integration between in-store terminals and Bravo platforms — customers will no longer need to manually enter data into the terminal and then re-enter information into their Bravo platforms.
“We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with BLUEDOG” says Tally Mack, CEO at Bravo. “It was clear from our earliest conversations that BLUEDOG was determined to meet a growing market demand — the need for a secure, reliable solution that gives merchants an effective way to quickly and securely process credit card payments in-store through their point of sale, ecommerce and mobile platforms. The alignment between our companies’ visions to enable business owners to run their business efficiently and profitably, while delivering exceptional customer experience make working together a natural and exciting step.”
Bottom-line Benefits of the Bravo & BLUEDOG Partnership
Improved Business Operations & Productivity: Credit card info is entered directly into the Bravo point-of-sale system and BLUEDOG takes care of the rest. No more manual keying of card data or spending hours reconciling accounting books at the end of the day.
Reduced Human-error & Increased Time Savings: Payments are seamlessly passed from the terminal to the Bravo point-of-sale platform – eliminating human errors and duplicate data entry.
Strengthened Security: The cloud-based integration offers multiple levels of security to protect business and customer data – providing a more secure method of collecting and storing sensitive information.
Expanded Product Offerings: BLUEDOG’s risk modeling and position in the market means that pawnbrokers will be able to legally process payments for items like firearms – giving pawnbrokers the ability to quickly expand product offerings to customers.
“Our partnership with Bravo is an exciting step forward in delivering incredible value to our merchant customers,” says Ron Dichter, President and CEO at BLUEDOG. “We are continually improving the experience for our merchants by advancing our platform functionality, and smart, relevant integrations with strategic partners is a way we accomplish this. Our partnership means that pawnbrokers have a new, more secure – and more efficient way – of processing payments at competitive rates.”
