Oak Brook, IL 13 April 2017 – Premier Payment Systems, a payment processor with over a decade of industry experience and Impeccable Digital, a digital design and development agency have merged to form Tidal Commerce, a merchant solutions company that focuses on helping small and medium sized businesses grow. The move will help bring better customer service and better experience for merchants, as well as offering state of the art Point of Sale (POS), e-commerce gateway, and terminal options.
Tidal POS has all the great features of a traditional POS system but, at half the size and for a quarter of the price. Now, merchants can manage their inventory, employees and customers all from one interface. Built for small to medium size shops, stands, and local restaurants, there is no hassle and it’s easy to use with competitive rates. Tidal POS also has a built in CRM with cloud dashboard to help manage inventory and sales reports.
“We’re offering the small and medium businesses the data and functionality that is only available to the large businesses,” explains founder and CEO of Tidal Commerce, Drew Sementa, formerly CEO of Premier Payment Systems. “Many companies don’t realize the payment issues they need to consider when starting off and there are a number of hurdles they need to jump over. Our solutions are aimed at these businesses who are ready to scale, making that growth transition easier.”
Tidal Commerce also makes it possible for online merchants to accept payments with a powerful feature-rich gateway. This online sales system includes plugins that work with many e-commerce platforms and shopping carts. All data is fully encrypted with the latest security standards, before data is even sent to the gateway. The platform supports all of the latest technology, including Apple Pay and Android Pay, so that client customers can pay any way they like.
The United States has some 28 million small businesses, taking hundreds of millions of payments each day. Tidal Commerce helps them take these payments quickly, easily and securely, boosting customer confidence and ensuring the success of these SMB enterprises, an integral part of the United States’ economy.
“Our main difference is that we offer hardware, software, and the payment processing backend to our clients as a total value package, where competitors stick to offering plans that start low and become expensive,” explains Mark Spirek, co-founder and CEO of Impeccable Digital, now CTO of Tidal Commerce. “They play the game where they claim they can save you money, only to raise rates later. Businesses are normally locked into long contracts with really large cancellation fees if they want to leave. We’re committed to transparency and in our pricing. We don’t have any cancellation fees because we know our products, service, and support keep our merchants happily processing every month.”
