The Solution for Processor Independence

Tokenization is a broad and complicated topic with many types of tokens and different token service providers. Over time, it’s common for business relationships and partnerships to change, and moving to a new tokenization service can cause disruptions. A solution that insulates merchants from tokenization changes and gives them the freedom to switch or add new payment partners at will, greatly simplifies the effort of doing business in today’s fast-paced environment.
