SOUTH PLAINFIELD, N.J., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- CHARGE Anywhere(R), a leading provider of secure Mobile Payments and Point-of-Sale (POS) solutions and electronic payment services, was awarded the coveted 2009 ETA Technology Innovation Award at this year's Annual Meeting & Expo in Las Vegas, NV. CHARGE Anywhere's Mobile Payment Solution with Signature Capture was chosen as the most innovative solution of the year.

This award, which was presented by ETA Executive Director Carla Balakgie to CHARGE Anywhere CEO Paul Sabella, is given to a company whose use of technology in the transaction processing industry increases standardization, promotes customer usability, increases profitability, makes significant advances for the industry, and has demonstrated results in the marketplace. CHARGE Anywhere has proven this with its proprietary PCI PA-DSS certified mobile payment solution.

The CHARGE Anywhere mobile payment solution is simple and intuitive to use and allows merchants to accept payments anywhere by using their 3G phones. With the addition of signature capture, the need for a merchant to produce, carry, and store paper receipts is eliminated. Electronic signature capture simplifies dispute resolution, optimizes operational efficiencies, promotes green practices, and reduces costs by leveraging advanced technology and vast infrastructure developed and maintained by CHARGE Anywhere.

Electronic signature capture has been widely available to large retailers; however, until now, comprehensive, cost-effective hosted solutions have been scarce for small, medium and mobile merchants. Nimble, innovative, and responsive, CHARGE Anywhere leveraged its secure end-to-end payment applications, payment gateway infrastructure, agility, and industry expertise to enable signature capture for the Mobile/SMB merchant community.

The CHARGE Anywhere payment application is also beneficial in several other ways. Merchants are able to capture critical business data along with all transactions. The secure application has custom fields that record and transmit data securely along with the payment to ComsGate(R), CHARGE Anywhere's PCI DSS Level 1 Secure Payment Gateway, and allows importing into backend software applications, including QuickBooks(R).

With eight different PCI PA-DSS certified payment applications, CHARGE Anywhere has a solution that is right for all merchants. The CHARGE Anywhere validated applications are available for a variety of platforms including Blackberry, Windows Mobile, J2ME, Wireless and IP POS Terminals, Windows, and QuickBooks, providing our merchants with a complete end to end solution and back by the secure ComsGate Payment Gateway.
