Sterling Payment Technologies Chosen Best Channel Vendor By Business Solutions Magazine For Sixth Consecutive Year

Sterling Payment Technologies, LLC, a national leader in the payment processing industry, has been selected by Business Solutions Magazine (BSM) as one of the Best Channel Vendors for 2014.

Value Added Resellers (VARs) and Independent Software Providers (ISVs) participating in Business Solutions’ annual survey gave Sterling Payment Technologies their highest ratings ever across all seven categories, including product innovation, product reliability and service/support. Being honored with the 2014 Best Channel Vendor award makes it the sixth year in a row that Sterling Payment Technologies has been recognized by Business Solutions magazine.

Edwin Leonardo, president of All Florida POS, partners with Sterling exclusively to provide payment processing to his customers. “I need a partner I can count on that understands both the industry and how I do business,” he said. “The benefits I’ve received from Sterling are far more than I could have imagined. Sterling reps go out of their way to get anything done for my customers and me. They are thorough, fast and knowledgeable.”

Business Solutions magazine partnered with Penn State University to conduct the annual survey and analyze the results. The exhaustive web-based survey of over 2,500 of the most active VAR/ISV subscribers drew nearly 5,000 votes, continuing the tradition of this being one of the largest surveys of its kind, across categories that included service/support, features, innovation and reliability. Once the votes were analyzed and compiled, the top vendors were acknowledged as the 2014 Best Channel Vendors. Of all vendors that were included, only the top five percent were honored with this award.

“Sterling is proud to once again be chosen by our partners as a Best Channel Vendor,” said Paul Hunter, President and CEO of Sterling Payment Technologies. “Sterling takes great pride in providing our reseller partners with innovative, market-leading solutions to meet their customers’ needs. We are honored to be selected for this award six years in a row. It’s a great testament to our commitment to provide the best-in-class technology, services and support our partners need to grow their businesses.”
