ASA Ohio Vendor Spotlight: Small Business Growth Alliance
The Automotive Service Association of Ohio has endorsed the Small Business Growth Alliance (SBGA) in providing members with their total back-office needs. With considerable association experience, SBGA has provided electronic payments, payroll services, and web management programs to members of the automotive industry for years. SBGA has helped members manage their entire business from a single platform, save $1,900 a year, on average, on payroll services, and obtain a web presence to bring more customers through their door with ease using SBGA’s array of simple, effective business solutions. It is with confidence that the Automotive Service Association of Ohio endorses SBGA’s services to help your business in these key operating areas as well.
Industry changes have ensured that SBGA will have a busy year in 2015. With a 47% increase in card fraud in the past year alone, the U.S. has become home to an estimated $8.6 billion dollars of annual fraudulent card transactions. EMV – more commonly known as Smart Chip Cards – has finally arrived to the United States to help mitigate these losses. With new technology and greater security, however, comes new rules and greater uncertainty for businesses and processors alike.
While smart chip cards have made card payments safer for customers and card issuers, merchants face carrying full liability for any fraudulent card used in their store if they are not equipped to properly handle smart card transactions. Legislation such as the President’s Buy Secure Initiative, large data breaches at Target and Home Depot, and new ways for customers to pay, such as Apple Pay™, have pushed forward EMV Smart Chip Card adoption in the United States. In anticipation for this transition, SBGA has become one of the few companies to be EMV Smart Chip Card certified, offering your business secure transactions through all of their payment system options.
Upgrading your point of sale system to Smart Chip Card standards will open your business to safer transactions, new methods of payment, and the latest technology solutions to help you manage everything in your business from payments to inventory. Don’t be left liable for fraudulent transactions – the deadline for Smart Chip Card compliance is this year! Let SBGA go to work for you.
