Jul 09, 2013, 13:14 ET from TransFirst

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TransFirst®, a leading provider of transaction processing services and payment enabling technologies, and MINDBODY, Inc., an industry leader providing web-based business management software and innovative technologies to health and wellness organizations worldwide, announce the renewal of their strategic partnership agreement.


Under this agreement, MINDBODY will continue to offer its U.S.-based clients TransFirst's state-of-the-art processing services in conjunction with its own powerful web based business management solutions, including a fully-integrated online store, point-of-sale and recurring billing features. This all-inclusive Software as a Service ("SaaS") system is unique to the processing world, enabling a fitness studio or spa customer, for example, to check into sessions by swiping a membership card using the same system that generates billing information. MINDBODY software also enables business owners and staff to generate business reports, manage customer relationships, tap into powerful marketing tools, retain customer receipts forever, and offer real-time information on credit card authorizations and batches.

"TransFirst is extremely pleased that we have renewed our partnership agreement with MINDBODY," says Steve Rizzuto, president of commercial services at TransFirst. "MINDBODY has demonstrated an impressive track record of integrating transactional processing services into their dynamic software solution. Our agreement with MINDBODY has secured an outstanding integrated partner producing in excess of 500 merchant accounts a month, and we expect that number to grow. Through our continued partnership, we will explore a number of initiatives that will deliver substantial benefits to our mutual clients."

Commenting on the announcement, Greg Wookey, Sr. Vice President of MINDBODY's Merchant Processing Division, says, "Our status as a registered ISO is a key element of our growth strategy for the future. TransFirst has been an outstanding merchant processing partner, and we are pleased that this great relationship is continuing."
