With the ringing in of the New Year come new opportunities and alignments.

Website Pipeline designs, builds, hosts, and supports B2B Customer Service Automation Portals. Website Pipeline’s Customer Service Automation Portal does the same thing for wholesalers, distributors, and manufacturers that ATM machines did for the banking industry 20-30 years ago. It gives your B2B customers a 24/7, online option to do the things they currently have to do through your customer service staff – by phone, fax, email, and mail (things like place orders, get inventory levels & pricing, track shipments, print and pay invoices, etc). If you are running a Sage ERP – you already have most of your work done – because Website Pipeline syncs all of the business data the portal needs directly from your ERP.

Why Ecommerce with ERP Integration is Important

Ecommerce with ERP integrationEcommerce with ERP integration plugs a business’s ecommerce site directly into their ERP, allowing customers access to a wide array of information. An ERP holds specific information about pricing, payment, shipping and history for each individual customer. It also tracks inventory, sourcing, financials, HR, warehousing and manufacturing information, giving a business an enterprise-level software solution. What’s missing in ERP software is an innate ability to interface with ecommerce. That’s what Website Pipeline does and here is why having this piece is so vital. Continue reading

Sage Payments and PCI Compliance SAQ Types

By Brian Seidel, President/CEO of Website Pipeline, Inc.

Let me start with this general disclaimer: I am not qualified to give professional advice on PCI-compliance… this is just my personal interpretation based on Website Pipeline going through the process of becoming a PCI DSS compliant service provider.

Background

  • Any merchant transacting credit cards has to be PCI DSS compliant – this is not a law, it is part of your contract terms with the CC companies (MasterCard and Visa).
  • A company or software package cannot make you, as a merchant, PCI compliant
  • You have to do deliberate work to be PCI compliant (initially and on an ongoing basis)
  • The likelihood of a merchant that takes credit cards being “PCI compliant” without making a deliberate, focused effort is as likely as someone who travels on airplanes a lot…passing a pilot’s license exam
  • There is no such thing as software that will make you PCI compliant
  • There is only software that is written and managed in a way that allows the merchant to be PCI compliant (if they do OTHER work) while using it
  • By contrast… if software that processes or stores credit cards is NOT “PCI approved” or “PCI compliant”, it prevents you – as a merchant – from being PCI compliant no matter what else you do.

Superior Farms ERP ecommerce siteWebsite Pipeline, a Greenville, SC web-development firm, has launched another successful e-commerce site that not only syncs with the client’s ERP and payment services, but with the marketing software as well.
