Bluefin powers fully integrated payment processing and security solutions for Clubworx clients directly through the Clubworx software platform
Bluefin, the leading provider of secure payment technology for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), Enterprises and Small-Medium Sized Businesses (SMBs), and Clubworx, an Australian –based, online membership management software solution for the fitness industry, have partnered to provide secure, integrated payment processing powered by Bluefin through the Clubworx software platform.
Clubworx provides a customized software application for health clubs, PT studios, martial arts, dance and yoga studios across the United States and Canada to manage prospects, clients, memberships, timetables and payments and more.
Bluefin develops security solutions for a variety of industries and verticals. Within the ISV space, Bluefin provides integrated payment processing and security solution through their PayConex platform. Partners integrate PayConex into their software offering, providing a seamless customer payment experience. Bluefin’s integrated solution includes security features such as PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization.
To date, Bluefin is one of just two companies in North America that have received PCI –validation for P2PE, a technology designed to encrypt cardholder data at the point of entry, preventing clear-text card data from entering the businesses’ system or network where it could be available in the event of a data breach.
“Our goal is to provide software to power our clients with an easy-to-use online system so that they can focus on doing what they love, growing their fitness business,” said Emily Smart, Clubworx CEO. “Integrated payment processing with Bluefin falls directly in line with this goal and offers a streamlined, secure way for our clients to accept online payments within their Clubworx software.”
Through the integrated payment solution powered by Bluefin, Clubworx clients can collect membership payments through a traditional terminal, tablet or mobile and utilize the recurring billing feature, which reduces collection efforts and improves payment workflow.
“Partnering with Clubworx is a perfect marriage of technologies,” stated Julie Counterman, Chief of Integrated Payments, Bluefin. “Clubworx understands the importance of protecting card data and providing secure payment technology to their clients, and we are very excited that they have chosen PayConex as the secure payment engine behind their innovative member management software.”
