ATLANTA & TULSA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ruston Miles, Chief of Product Innovation at Bluefin Payment Systems, is a featured speaker at DonorDirect’s 2013 Client Conference, May 5-8 in Richardson, TX.
Founded in 1999, DonorDirect provides an enterprise-wide software solution for ministries that manages donor information and extends payment acceptance to mail, phone, web, and mobile. This year’s conference is being attended by DonorDirect’s clients, which represent over 50 ministries and non-profits from around the world.
“DonorDirect is an industry-leading donor management software provider for ministries and non-profits,” said Mr. Miles. “Speaking on PCI and Donor Data Security is a great opportunity to discuss the technological challenges ministries face today, and to explain new industry security developments and state-of-the-art payment technology solutions to meet those challenges head-on.”
Bluefin Payment Systems is a leading provider of secure payment technologies. The company is partnered with over 100 software providers and serves 15,000 U.S. and Canadian merchants, including 1,200 faith-based and non-profit organizations. Bluefin was recognized in 2012 as the #6 Fastest Growing Private Company in America by Inc., 500.
“Bluefin has an outstanding reputation for understanding the payment processing and security needs of ministries,” said Frank Smith, CEO for DonorDirect. “Bluefin has become our preferred partner for payment processing and PCI security, providing our clients with the most innovative and secure processing products available. I believe that our partnership provides cutting edge solutions, especially in radically reducing the PCI security scope for ministries and their service providers. ”
Miles continued, “Here is a great example of how together we can reduce PCI scope: a recent ministry that properly implemented our PCI security solutions for call center, in-person, and web donation acceptance, in conjunction with their donor management system, eliminated the need to answer hundreds of PCI security requirements, extensive security assessments, questionnaires, and quarterly scans. This ministry is only required to submit a single page signoff that there is no cardholder data stored, processed or transmitted. Not only is this a major reduction in cost and ongoing workload for the ministry, but it is also a major risk reduction to both the ministry and the privacy of the donor’s cardholder data.”
DonorDirect (www.donordirect.com) works with many of the nation’s most impacting ministries. The company has been providing its leading donor management software for over 14 years.
