BHMI to Demonstrate the Value of Concourse at 2012 PULSE Conference

BHMI to showcase the Concourse Financial Software Suite™ and how it helps financial service companies obtain a competitive-edge in the payments industry.

Omaha, NE — September 24, 2012 — Baldwin Hackett & Meeks, Inc. (BHMI), a leading supplier of high-volume transaction processing solutions, will be showcasing its Concourse Financial Software Suite™, a proven back-office processing solution for electronic payments transactions, at the 2012 PULSE Conference. This event is being held at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada from October 1 – 3, 2012.

The Concourse Financial Software Suite is a powerful PCI PA-DSS compliant back office software suite specifically designed to manage electronic payments including debit, credit, POS, ATM, mobile, and prepaid. The following Concourse business services can be implemented as stand-alone products or as an integrated solution:

  • Concourse – Extended Settlement™ ensures the settlement, clearing, and funds movement of electronic payment transactions.
  • Concourse – Reconciliation™ validates the matching of electronic transactions between internal and external data sources such as authorization systems, external networks, and third-party processors.
  • Concourse – Disputes™ provides workflow management for dispute-related activities such as adjustments, chargebacks, and representments.
  • Concourse – Fees & Commissions™ automates the assessment and processing of transaction-based fees, including interchange, gateway, and processing fees. It also calculates commissions, royalties, and rebates.

“In today’s competitive market, financial service providers, card associations, networks, and merchants have to process electronic payment transactions quickly, reliably, and cost effectively. They also have to be flexible enough to support different delivery mechanisms, such as the internet and mobile devices,” stated Casey Scheer, Director of Marketing and Sales. “During the 2012 PULSE Conference, BHMI will explain how Concourse Financial Software ensures that a company’s back office processing environment will remain fast and agile.”

Below are just a few of the Concourse strengths that will be showcased during the 2012 PULSE Conference:

  • Continuous Processing Model – Back office processing systems have traditionally performed batch processing. Concourse breaks the batch barrier because it continuously loads transactions from a wide range of data sources and begins processing the data as soon as it arrives, alleviating the end-of-day pressures associated with traditional batch systems. Concourse also provides real time access to transaction data via a secure PCI PA-DSS compliant browser-based viewer. This streamlines research procedures and enhances customer support.
  • Rules-Based Architecture – The Concourse business rules allow companies to invoke custom methods of transaction processing with no code changes or software outages. Concourse provides an intuitive, browserbased rules builder making it easy for business analysts, not programmers, to configure and implement new business rules. This interface replaces the programming changes required by traditional back office systems. As a result, it allows companies to differentiate their businesses by implementing new processing methods and services that other companies cannot support without a costly and time consuming development effort.

BHMI invites anyone attending the 2012 PULSE Conference to visit booth number 19. Attendees will learn how Concourse modernizes and increases the efficiency of back office transaction processing environments. They will also learn that Concourse is a proven solution that is being used by companies with thousands of members and clients, supporting thousands of ATM and POS devices, and processing millions of transactions each day.
