PORTLAND, Ore. – August 13, 2012 – Billing Services Group (BSG), a leader in innovative payment solutions, and iovation, the Device Reputation Authority™ protecting online businesses from fraud and abuse, today announced a partnership that will integrate iovation’s ReputationManager 360 solution within BSG’s OrderBridge™ payment management system. The addition of iovation’s fraud detection service offers BSG merchants not only advanced device identification, but access to iovation’s global network of Internet-enabled devices, their associations, and reputations—in order to know who to trust.
“We are thrilled to work with iovation to offer an additional level of fraud protection for our merchants,” said Scott Chapman, BSG Vice President of Business Development. “We understand that each merchant’s business is unique and by keeping OrderBridge™ flexible and customizable, we are able to address our merchants’ needs today and long-term. Integrating iovation’s ReputationManager 360 service is a natural fit. Merchants have even more control over their fraud prevention techniques without disruption to their existing workflow. This partnership gives merchants ongoing confidence knowing their transactions are secure.”
ReputationManager 360 will be an integrated part of the OrderBridge™ payment system, allowing merchants to customize their fraud controls. At the point of purchase, iovation will then analyze the transaction risk in real-time, flag questionable devices and deliver a recommendation to allow, review or deny the transaction based on the merchant’s business rules. Merchants can then use this recommendation within their existing workflow. ReputationManager 360 also enables scheduled and on-demand reporting that will provide merchants with valuable information needed to improve their fraud controls.
“iovation’s device reputation service perfectly complements the OrderBridge™ payment system without any additional integration work,” said Jon Karl, Vice President of Corporate Development at iovation. “We’re excited about this partnership and the ability to assist even more of the world’s leading merchants who are already Billing Services Group customers.”
