SalePoint Certified as PCI QIR Company

SalePoint, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been certified as a Payment Card Industry (PCI) Qualified Integrator & Reseller (QIR). A Qualified Integrator & Reseller is an organization that is authorized by the PCI Security Standards Council to “implement, configure and/or support” PA-DSS payment applications. The PCI Council lists all QIRs on its website (https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/assessors_and_solutions/qualified_integrators_and_resellers).
Merchants categorized as Level 4 must use PCI-certified QIR solution providers for their POS systems. What is a Level 4 Merchant? Visa defines Level 4 Merchants as merchants that process fewer than 1 million Visa transactions in-person or 20,000 ecommerce Visa transactions per year.
Some of the guidelines include: ensuring that authentication data (i.e., PIN numbers, CAV2, CID, CVC2, CVV2) is never stored after authorization; providing guidance to merchants regarding secure deletion of expired cardholder data; and implementing protection for payment applications using wireless technology.  Several employees of SalePoint completed the training course and passed the examination for PCI QIR.
“Data security is a key concern of companies processing credit card transactions today. Following the PCI Security Standards Council programs and standards allows SalePoint to assure its clients that their payment processing implementations meet the latest security standards and are implemented by trained individuals,” said Larry Haworth, CEO of SalePoint.

PatientWorks expands integrations to include eClinicalWorks

PatientWorks Corporation, a subsidiary of SalePoint, Inc., is a leader in patient self-service check-in solutions based in Cary, NC. PatientWorks has integrated with the major hospital information systems and practice management systems in the healthcare market today through its integration engine.
Recently the company added integration to eClinicalWorks® to its implemented integrations. A new customer, a healthcare provider in New York, selected the KioskWorks® patient self-service check-in solution to automate their patient registration process. Their enterprise solution was eClinicalWorks.
KioskWorks allows customized workflows and functionality that offers eClinicalWorks clients the ability to implement a solution that fits their unique patient registration and patient workflow requirements rather than a standard application. KioskWorks fits the healthcare provider rather than forcing the provider to change their business to fit the application’s functionality.
To facilitate bi-directional integration between KioskWorks and eClinicalWorks, PatientWorks teamed with Mi7 Solutions, a health care technology consulting firm with experience in eClinicalWorks integrations, to implement the required integrations via HL7.
The PatientWorks clinic went live with the KioskWorks solution in February 2018, integrated to eClinicalWorks.
If you are an eClinicalWorks customer that has a need to automate your patient registration process with patient self-service kiosks, give us a call.

SalePoint Marks 30th Anniversary on May 5th

Columbus, Ohio May 5, 2017 – SalePoint, Inc. marks its 30th anniversary as a leading supplier of technology solutions to the retail, healthcare, public sector, and higher education markets.
“Surprisingly it all started with an MBA program business plan competition at San Diego State University. Larry Imperiale, a graduate with a Computer Science degree, was working on his MBA at San Diego State University and entered an entrepreneurial business plan competition with a business plan that addressed a market gap in the retail systems market that was not being served by the large players such as IBM, NCR, and Fujitsu at the time. His business plan won the contest and Imperiale founded SalePoint Systems Corporation on May 5, 1987, to address this market gap. The name was later changed to SalePoint, Inc. During the early years, retail was a high growth market with specialty retailers expanding their chains nationwide. SalePoint grew quickly becoming #19 on the Inc. 500 List of Fastest Growing Companies in 1992. It later acquired additional businesses to expand its retail systems offerings. SalePoint diversified and expanded via acquisition into other markets that were showing strong growth. Today the healthcare information systems market has grown to be a strong segment of the company,” Larry Haworth, CEO of SalePoint stated. “Information technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace and SalePoint has had to adopt to ever changing technology. Luckily we have had a strong team that has enabled us to endure and grow in highly competitive and changing marketplaces. Our continued strong focus on customer satisfaction has enabled our success.”
More information about the founding of the company may be found in a Los Angeles Times article covering SalePoint in December 1990 – articles.latimes.com/1990-12-11/business/fi-6195_1_business-plan-competition. Imperiale, a 13-time Freestyle Frisbee World Champion is now Senior Vice President eCommerce Customer Experience Monitoring at Bank of America and continues to consider the founding of SalePoint as one of the “most significant professional accomplishments of his career so far.”
