Payment Alliance International, a provider of electronic payment processing solutions, has been selected by the Asian American Trade Associations Council as a founding strategic partner of the organization's newly launched Watchdog program.
In this role, PAI becomes an endorsed payment provider for merchant services to Watchdog organization members. This includes tens of thousands of retailers and affiliates, representing more than 200,000 various retail businesses owned or operated by Asian Americans across the nation.
"We are thrilled to form a partnership with the AATAC," said Scott McFarland, senior vice president of sales at PAI. "Our vision and product strategy are directly aligned to the value propositions the AATAC delivers its membership."
"This initiative will … be spearheaded by the most successful and trusted partners," said Paul Rock, trustee of the AATAC board of directors. "In the payments category, PAI already does a tremendous amount of business with our retailers and affiliates — from ATMs to merchant processing to other money collection and remittance programs.
"We are excited about what this means for our industry and we will soon have the best minds in the business watching over our accounts and ensuring we have the best offer in hand."
